"Warp and Weft" is one of the shorter of the books of The Years of Rice and Salt, taking place on Turtle Island/ Yingzhou nee North America, among the Hodenosaunee, a word Matt and Hilary definitely know how to pronounce.
Fromwest nee Busho gets initiated as a chief in a beautiful ceremony and makes an amazing, prophetic, ecstatic speech that opens up a discussion about conceptions of history and the future, change and struggle, hope and kinship, and lacrosse and red eggs.
Matt performs an exercise in grammar for your pleasure and recommends Dante again as a contrast to the bardo scenes, and Hilary reads from Nick Estes' incredible book Our History is the Future (Verso, 2019) (pages 248 and 256 if you have a copy).
Can you spot the red egg that appeared earlier in the book? Let us know where it is, either over Twitter, at our email, or on Facebook. (Or you can leave us a voicemail on the Anchor app, but only if you want your message played on the podcast which, if you're like Matt and you can't stand the sound of your own voice, you may want to think twice about). The reward is our thanks!
