White Washed History… (Trigger Warning for death, killings, and burial) …….an excerpt from the novel REZ’s EDGE…… “One shot.  That’s all it took.” Jonathon and I booth stare blankly at the elongating shadows stretching across the blacktop. The sun burns at my right eye.  I swing the visor over to the passenger window.  Doesn’t help. My height in the seat leaves me below the protection of the visor.  The sun has a clear shot at my skull. A road sign reads Porcupine with an arrow pointing straight ahead, and Kyle with one pointing to the left.  The truck, with a lighter color than the White River, begins to slow. There’s a few buildings at the intersection.  A ragged rez vehicle zips by on the opposite lane, and Jonathon’s Indian hands crank the wheel counterclockwise and keep us onto BIA 2. “What’s BIA?” “Bureau of Indian Affairs.  Reservations are the Indians’ own Sovereign Nations, so the roads aren’t part of the State Highway system.  The Federal Government maintains the roads on the rez’s. That’s why there so shitty.  It’s hard to get them to pay the tribes anything they owe us.” “What did they do with all the bodies?” “Huh?  Oh, at Wounded Knee.  Guess my head took a detour.  That’s almost another story in itself. “A blizzard set in, so the Cavalry just left all the bodies lying there for three bitter-cold, snow-filled days.  Some cavalry officials and some private citizens were sent out to take care of the burial. Paid the citizens two-dollars a head to bury the dead. “They found women and children as far as two miles away from the scene, brutally murdered.  Gunshots going through mothers and the babies they held, found frozen together and stuck to the cold ground.  Ugly, mighty ugly. “You might have seen that picture of Spotted Elk, found there half sitting up in some kind of sick and twisted frozen pose?” “No.” “Well, you probably will, in high school, maybe.  If the stupid public school system doesn’t try to hide those facts from you guys. “They do that.  Feed you only the history they want you to see. Not the real history, the way it actually was.  Seems written accounts get prettied up, or twisted in a way to shine a more pleasing light on the race writing down that history.  I wish history was just laid out as is.  Not distorted.” “How’d they get the bodies, you know, unstuck?” “Had to pry and pull ‘em off the frozen earth.  They dug a big pit and just chucked dead warriors, women, children, and babies into a mass grave.  Then dropped cold dirt on them. “They said there were one-hundred-and-sixty eight bodies shoved into that hole in the ground. But I’m betting they even padded that number up a bit.  You know, as a bonus for sticking dead Indians into the dirt.” … The above historical excerpt is from Brad Jensen’s full length novel/book 'REZ’s EDGE’.  Click here for more info and writing samples.  Cheers!

authorbradjensen: Classroom Prejudices… (Trigger Warning: Deals with racism, the N-word, and mild profanity) - - - - - - My entry breaks Thor’s flow of instructions and he says, “Dakota Charleston, you’re late.  Take the seat next to Richard Long Wolf.  After today, lateness will not be tolerated.  Got it, Mr. Charleston?” “Yes Sir.”  Great! I think, dripping in sarcasm.  Frickin’ cherry nigger’s cousins kill my father, and I’ve gotta sit next to the bastard.  Cousin is a relative term though, as anyone in the entire Sioux tribe would be considered his cousin. I swagger down the lane between the desks and shoot screaming-hot-lead bullets from my eyeballs into the skull of Richard Long Wolf.  His acne-pocked face disgusts me.   His eyes quickly leave mine and focus on his blank desktop.   I drop my spiral notebook loudly on my desk.  I swing my leg over the back of the seat, ease down, slide my feet and legs forward along the floor, and assume a slouching position full of disdain and cockiness.  I can feel the dormant volcano stir inside my core, but my posture just says, ‘I don’t give a damn.’   Thor drones on, giving us rules and regulations and hands out our syllabus for the semester. He’s having us go through it, when over the intercom comes the high-pitched-whiny voice of Mrs. Burkhardt, the secretary.  “Mr. Thoraldson, please come to the office.  You have an important phone call.  Thank you.” Thor leaves the room.  My arm shoots across the aisle and I hammer my fist hard into the shoulder of Richard Long Wolf.   “Ouch!  What the hell was that for?” Richard squeals.   “That, my red skinned friend, was the ‘Thumping of The Day’.  Get used to it.  One a day.  Just like taking your Geritol.  I’ll be serving up your daily vitamin for the rest of the year.  We’ve gotta keep you healthy, you know old man.” My comment scores some laughs, especially with those that I consider my good friends.   Thor is back.  We make it through his reading of the syllabus and then his ranting about moisture particles,  cumulonimbus, nimbostratus, stratocumulus, and cirrus clouds.  The bell finally rings and Thor throws in post-bell, “Read chapter one and know the cloud types, because we are having a quiz on them tomorrow.”   A collective moan is emitted, as we grab our books to walk out and find our new lockers.   Richard Long Wolf is the first one up, passing the other students’ desks even before they arise, and out the door.  Gone like a wolf in distress. —————- [B]The above is from [Brad Jensen’s full length novel/book ‘REZ’s EDGE’.  Click here for more info and writing samples.  Cheers! |http://bradjensen.wixsite.com/authorbradjensen]
