    I’d like to know what (post-apocalyptic or dystopic) point he was trying to make with the introduction of the massive white man on the snowmobile, and especially what lesson or point was he making by having that man resort to cannibalism. Was this character meant to be the personification of evil — showing how low people could sink? (We saw a variety of reactions from other characters: notably they were all people Evan (we) “knew” from the rez. Was he trying to say only an outsider could be this evil?
    And on a more practical note, I wondered why there were never other invaders from the south. If that guy could figure out that following the tracks could lead him to salvation, why wasn’t Evan’s community invaded by dozens of others like this massive white man?

    Did you have in your mind what the crisis was that was occuring “on the outside” that led to the isolation of the northern communities?
    Was it anything like the pandemic?

    Hi, Waub- I was wondering if you see yourself as an activist for your community and, if so, do you think you were an activist first who found writing this story part of that activism or did the story come first followed by your activism? Thanks for this story and all the discussion it has generated.
