During her teens she had questions such as, 'What operates behind visible reality? He also wrote the highly regarded book, "Evolve Your Brain". In this interview Joe talks in detail about his accident when he was in his early 20s which changed his life.
I'll say first off that you should block off time for this book--it's not something you should read in multiple sittings, and you honestly won't want to read it that way.
Miranda defies genre as she mashes together archival sourced-history with personal memoir with tribal history with poetry with essay with visual work. Her rich writing--and oh my GOD is it rich, it's so beautiful--really makes the story she's telling all the more rich and vivid.

My favorite is the Novena to Bad Indians -- a few excerpts: Indian outlaws, banditos, renegades, rebels, lazy Indians, sinful Indians, you gamblers who squatted out behind the church instead of assuming the missionary position behind the plow Oh magnificent Aniceto who refused to name thieves of money, chocolate, shoes, string, knives from the presidio -- thirteen years old, you took a flogging in silence The structure of the book bringing the reader up to speed on cultural history before delving into the author's more personal story, reminds me so much of Gloria Anzaldua's Borderlands -- and, lo and behold, Miranda pays her respects to Anzaldua later in the book.
What a valuable contribution to our understanding of the life of California Indians -- from centuries ago until today.
