1. “Life’s Too Short to Do All This Work and Not Do It Right”

    This interview mentions Miyelo and then moves into a discussion of the mission of Perceval Press and aspects of American and international politics. Viggo explains the main reason he decided to visit Cuba: "If you don't think of Cubans or Iraqis as actual human beings with jobs and day-to-day lives, if you don't see them or hear their voices, then it's easier to be against them. They're faceless." Follow the Along With the Ride link on the page for the full text of "Back to Babylon."
  2. The Return of the King

    Article and interview. After the release of Hidalgo, Viggo returned to South Dakota to participate in a trail ride and speak with Native Voice about the film, Miyelo, Native American culture, and the challenges facing people today. He also talks about the cost of stardom and his commitment to his fans: "You know, for me to look each person in the eye and listen to their question and answer them, and get their name right and be respectful—that takes a certain amount of energy for complete concentration.... At the end of the day you don’t have anything left, sometimes, for yourself. You have to find ways to hide out, that's all."
