A Quote by Paula Gunn Allen on belonging to history, archaic, re-create history, indians, and present

The Indians used to be the only inhabitants of the Americas, but times change. Having perceived us as belonging to history, they are free to emote over us, to re-create us in their history-based understanding, and dismiss our present lives as archaic and irrelevant to the times.
