This publication explores the life and times of the performance persona Buffalo Boy, from his very first appearance in 2004 to his greatly exaggerated first death in 2008 at the”Battle of Little Big Horny” and beyond. The book considers the nature of the performance persona, the dialectical nature of this contemporary re-imagining of the west, and the discursive power of performance. The book is a partnership between the Mountain Standard Time Performative Art Festival Society and TRUCK Contemporary Art in Calgary, produced with the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts.
