Vice Magazine - Ursula K. Le Guin

A.L. Kroeber was known to have befriended Ishi, who was considered the last native Californian to not have met us, and found that like Pogo said, he is us. They have an archery club award and other info recorded from him. There has been a ? about it all and it was found that unbeknown as stated by Dr. Kroeber, Ishi’s head was removed and studied and then more recently demanded to be reburied with his remains. Which reminds me, the night I was invited over to see the "Last Californian native" show on TV by a woman pursuing her PH.D. in Anthropology and meet her husband the Grumman Corp. F-14 test pilot and celebrate his birthday, the media announced in an interruption that if the USSR made a move for its border with Iran, we would be forced to blow up all the F-14s we had been training the Shah’s air force to fly, about 80, once I read to be 100. The former test pilot told me that the air-to-air missiles were probably why, the rest of the jet was well known to the Russians. His wife had also been to Iran, where now Northrup-Grumman had had a compound of almost 4000 employees engaged in teaching the multiple tasks of putting a fighter-bomber in the air. Of course the American Embassy takeover was by students who would no longer be spied on there and in the US by Savak the secret police then of Iran. The rest they say is history. Thanks for interview and the space, commenting from the home of James Caan, in the "Lathe of Heaven" the Bronx, NY which came out again, right after another crisis, the events of September 11, 2001.
