Off the Reservation: Reflections on Boundary-busting Border-crossing Loose Canons
Beacon Press, 1998 - 262 頁
Off the Reservation gives us the best of Allen's political essays, literary criticism, and personal reflections. In section one, "Haggles/gynosophies" (haggles being a persuasive speech in which a hag engages), Allen offers powerful critiques of the Western social constructs of proprietorship, literacy, individualism, and "rape culture" contrasted with the communal and spiritual connection to the earth that characterizes native societies. "Wyrds/orthographies" presents some of the best analysis of Native American literature of the late twentieth century, including the work of N. Scott Momaday, Leslie Marmon Silko, and Mary Tallmountain.

for two months , entombed in the coffin of her body . Not conscious , not dead .
I was told that that meant us , too , because they called all of us “ Syrians . ” I
guess there were no Lebanese in the minds of the anti - Semitic sign makers ,
just as there were no Lebanese for the hundreds - of - years - long occupation
With this a taco , an enchilada or two , a basket of sopapillas - which in Indian
country is bigger and called fry - bread – honey or salt to sprinkle on it , or maybe
one prefers a fragrant , fresh pile of white flour tortillas . Slathered with real butter
