The point is, Martin, you can't steer from the pain. If you do, you'll rob yourself. You'll rob yourself of every memory of her. Every last one. From the first step... to her last smile. You kill 'em all. Just take the pain, Martin. Do you hear me? You take it. It's the only way to keep her with you.
-I'm just tired, Cory. I'm just.. so tired of fighting this life.
What you do now you is for your boy.

The Gannet Peak. Highest mountain in Wyoming. On the hottest day in August, still there's a feet of snow. Today, too cold to snow.
You know what it's like out here in this frozen hell? Ain't there nothing to do. No nothing. Aint no women, no fun. This is fxcking snow and the fxcking silence, that's all!
-My family's people were forced here. Stuck here for a century. That's snow and silence is the only thing that hasn't been taken from them. So what did you take?
I got lucky.
-Ah. well, luck don't live out here. Luck lives in the city. Don't live out here. It lives where you get hit by a bus or not. Where your bank is robbed or not. At someone's damn cell phone when he come up to a crosswalk. That's luck, that's winning or losing. Out here you survive or you surrender. That's determined by your strength and bare spirit. Wolves don't kill the unlucky deer. They kill the weak ones. You fought for your life Jane. And now you get to walk away with it. You'll get to go home.
(12-7-2017: Ojai officials said it was a “miracle” that fierce Santa Ana winds had subsided on Thursday ...)
I got my truck and a high out of there and I wound up in a little mountain town called Ojai. I get there and it's like fruit farms. Vineyards. And there is this mountain surrounding it you know like protecting the town. And the people there like everybody smiles at each other. They say hello. it's like I remember thinking they were all like. I don't know. They had these looks in their eyes. Like they ran on some sort of secret like they had all figured it out. There is this mission, the Spanish mission right there in the middle of the town. They are having Christmas mass. They're celebrating Christmas. 70 degrees where you know. I just land there. pick me an orange of the tree and sat down on a bench, to listen that choir singing, eating my orange. You know that was the best Christmas I've ever had.
A Meadow in My perfect world:
Here is a meadow
in my perfect world.
Where wind dances
the branches of the tree
casting leopards spots of light
across the face of pond.
The tree stands tall
and grand and alone,
shading the world beneath it.
There will come a day
when I rest against its spine
and look out over a valley
where the sun warms,
but never burns.
I will watch leaves turn
Green, then amber, then crimson.
Then no leaves at all.
But the tree will not die.
For in this place,
winter never comes.
It is here,
in the cradle of all I hold dear,
I guard every memory of you.
And when I find myself frozen
in the mud of the real
far from your loving eyes.
I will return to this place,
close mine, and take solace in the simple
perfection of knowing you.
That's cold enough to freeze a gold digger's ass out here.
I'm not going to stand here and tell you that life's fair, Cause it ain't. To either of us. But you know, what do we go? This land is all we got left.
You gonna lecture me about protecting people? While you deal the shit thats killing em? Unlike most people... You had every chance to
get the hell out if thats what you wanted. You got the Army. You got College. Whatever is your choice. Look what you choose. Look what you chose. God damn you.
She was such a good girl. But we let our guard down. Yeah. Let me tell you. Maybe you'll have kids one day. You cannot blink. Not once, not ever.

Look, I know you're looking for clues, but you're missing all the signs.
I'm telling you. The answer is out there.
Hey look... um... I don't know how to do this. Okay? I'm not a tracker.
That's okay, it's all I do.
These kids... they expect to go to prison. Hell, I think they look forward to it. You know? Three hoots, and a cot, and free cable? Anything better being here... the way they see it.
Man, i get so mad i want to fight the whole world. You got any idea what that feels like?

Ending quote: “While missing person statistics are compiled for every other demographic, none exist for Native American women.”
