Traditionally, America has been an east-west country. We have read our history, right to left across the page. We were oblivious of Canada. In a Protestant country that believed in rebirth the Easter promise , land became our metaphor for possibility.

As long as there was land ahead of us—Ohio, Illinois, Nebraska—we could believe in change; we could abandon our in-laws, leave disappointments behind, to start anew further west.

Nineteenth-century real estate developers and 20th-century Hollywood moguls may have advertised the futuristic myth of California to the rest of America.

But the myth was one Americans were predisposed to believe. The idea of California was invented by Americans many miles away. Only a few early voices from California ever warnedagainst optimism.

Two decades after California became American territory, the conservationist John Muir stood at the edge of California and realized that America is a finite idea: We need to preserve the land, if the dream of America is to survive. I grew up in California of the s, when the state was filling with people from New York and Oklahoma. Everyone was busy losing weight and changing hair color and becoming someone new. There was, then, still plenty of cheap land for tract houses, under the cloudless sky.

The s, the s—those years were our golden age. Edmund G. He even made the water run up the side of a mountain. By the s, optimism was running out of space. Los Angeles needed to reinvent itself as Orange County. Then Californians started moving into the foothills or out to the desert, complaining all the while of the traffic and of the soiled air.

And the immigrants! Suddenly, foreign immigrants were everywhere—Iranians were buying into Beverly Hills; the Vietnamese were moving into San Jose; the Chinese were taking all the spaces in the biochemistry courses at UCLA. And Mexicans, poor Mexicans, were making hotel beds, picking peaches in the Central Valley, changing diapers, even impersonating Italian chefs at Santa Monica restaurants.

The Mexicans and the Chinese had long inhabited California. But they never resided within the golden myth of the state. Mexicans were neither here nor there. They were imported by California to perform cheap labor, then deported in bad economic times.

The East Coast had incorporated Ellis Island in its myth. The West Coast regarded the non-European immigrant as doubly foreign. But sometime in the s, it became clear to many Californians that the famous blond myth of the state was in jeopardy. Whose compass was right? Meanwhile, with the lifting of anti-Asian immigration restrictions, jumbo jets were arriving at LAX from Bangkok and Seoul. It has taken two more decades for the East Coast to get the point.

Foreign immigrants are replanting optimism on California soil; the native-born know the wisdom of finitude. Each side has a knowledge to give the other. Already, everywhere in California, there is evidence of miscegenation—Keanu Reeves, sushi tacos, blond Buddhists, Salvadoran Pentecostals.

But the forces that could lead to marriage also create gridlock on the Santa Monica freeway. The native-born Californian sits disgruntled in traffic going nowhere. The flatbed truck in front of him is filled with Mexicans; in the Mercedes next to him is a Japanese businessman using a car phone.

There are signs of backlash. Pete Wilson has become the last east-west governor of California. But immigrants are most disconcerting to California because they are everywhere working, transforming the ethos of the state from leisure to labor.

Chinese kids are raising the admission standards to the University of California. Mexican immigrant kids are undercutting union wages, raising rents in once-black neighborhoods. Now Californians take their meaning from natural calamity.

People turn away from the sea, imagine the future as existing backward in time. After hitting the coastline like flies against glass, we look in new directions. For the first time, Californians now talk of the North and the South—new points on our national compass.

Puerto Ricans, Mexicans: Early in this century we were immigrants. Or not immigrants exactly. Puerto Ricans had awakened one day to discover that they suddenly lived on U. We were people from the South in an east-west country. We were people of mixed blood in a black and white nation. We were Catholics in a Protestant land. Many millions of us were Indians in an east-west country that imagined the Indian to be dead. Today, Los Angeles is the largest Indian city in the United States, though Hollywood filmmakers persist in making movies about the dead Indian.

For seven bucks, you can see cowboys slaughter Indians in the Kevin Costner movie—and regret it from your comfortable chair. We have turned into fools. We argue among ourselves, criticize one another for becoming too much the gringo or maybe not gringo enough.

We criticize each other for speaking too much Spanish or not enough Spanish. We demand that politicians provide us with bilingual voting ballots, but we do not trouble to vote. Octavio Paz, the Mexican writer, has observed that the Mexican-American is caught between cultures, thus a victim of history—unwilling to become a Mexican again, unable to belong to the United States.

Michael Novak, the United States writer, has observed that what unites people throughout the Americas is that we all have said goodbye to our motherland. To Europe. To Africa. To Asia. Many have traveled back and forth, between rivals, between past and future, commuters between the Third World and First.

We were also a scandal to Puerto Rico and Mexico. Our Spanish turned bad. Our values were changing—though no one could say why or how exactly. Columbus imagined himself in a part of the world where there were Indians. We are only beginning to look at the map.

We are only beginning to wonder what the map of the hemisphere might mean. Well, I think to myself—my aunt is now dead, God rest her soul—I wonder what she would have thought a couple of years ago when the great leaders—the president of Mexico, the president of the United States, the Canadian prime minister—gathered to sign the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Mexico signed a document acknowledging that she is a North American. I predict that Mexico will suffer a nervous breakdown in the next 10 years. She will have to check into the Betty Ford Clinic for a long rest. She will need to determine just what exactly it means that she is, with the dread gringo, a norteamericana. Canada, meanwhile, worries about the impact of the Nashville music channel on its cable TV; Pat Buchanan imagines a vast wall along our southern flank; and Mexican nationalists fear a Clinton bailout of the lowly peso.

We all speak of North America. But has anyone ever actually met a North American? Oh, there are Mexicans. And there are Canadians. And there are so-called Americans.

But a North American? Let me tell you about him—this North American. He is a Mixteco Indian who comes from the Mexican state of Oaxaca. He is trilingual. His primary language is the language of his tribe. His second language is Spanish, the language of Cortes. Also, he has a working knowledge of U. English, because, for several months of the year, he works near Stockton, Calif. He commutes over thousands of miles of dirt roads and freeways, knows several centuries, two currencies, two sets of hypocrisy.

He is a criminal in one country and an embarrassment to the other. He is preyed upon by Mexican officers who want to shake him down because he has hidden U. In Oaxaca, he lives in a 16th-century village, where his wife watches blond Venezuelan soap operas.

A picture of la Virgen de Guadalupe rests over his bed. In Stockton, there is no Virgin Mary, only the other Madonna—the material girl. I think it may even be too early to tell what the story of Columbus means. The latest chapter of the Columbus saga may be taking place right now, as Latin American teenagers with Indian faces violate the U.

Share on:. The book was popular because it gave a rare glimpse into the workings of the autistic mind, as told from the unique perspective of a teenager with non-verbal autism. Naoki communicates by using an alphabet grid, or by tracing letters on the palm of a transcriber. Despite this slow and laborious method of writing, he has published several books in his native Japan, and manages to give public presentations to raise awareness of his condition.

And he came and touched the bier: and they that bore him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say to you, Arise.
