    What does he mean in this interview by “a visitor from up north, I will try to kill it”, a line from his deformation poem, do you think?

  4. Splabman

    I think it was the English translation of the Arapaho ( I believe) line from an indigenous hunter who was speaking about prey. In that culture (as in many indigenous cultures) other animals are considered people, so a visitor from the north might be a member of a pack of animals that may provide sustenance. Thanks for listening.
