One of the most important events in the novel takes place ten years prior to the main narrative when Lewis, Gabe, Cassidy, and Ricky go hunting elk on/near the reservation. When they see a large herd of elk move into a restricted area, they decide to pursue. The area is off-limits to hunting, and only Blackfeet elders are allowed to go there. The hunters kill several elk there. They are caught and are stripped of their hunting privileges.
