"Here's Hazel Tewee, Warm Springs Indian, on the land her father and mother settled near Simnasho Community on the Warm Springs Reservation in 1907. She had been telling us stories of playing hooky from school, hiding in the cliffs and caves while the truant officer searched for them on horseback, and just laughed and laughed."
