Happy Independence Day, Victor

Happy Independence day, Victor. You feeling independent? I’m feeling independent. I’m feeling extra magical today, Victor. Like I could make anything disappear. Houdini with braids, you know? Wave my hand and poof! The white people are gone, sent back to where they belong. Poof! Paris, London, Moscow. Poof! Berlin, Rome, Athens. Poof! Poof! Poof! Wave my hand and the reservation is gone. The trading post and the post office, the tribal school and the pine trees, the dogs and cats, the drunks and the Catholics, and the drunk Catholics. Poof! And all the little Indian boys named Victor.

- Smoke Signals, 1998. Screenplay: Sherman Alexie
