June meets Andy at the bar in Williston, North Dakota, and he drives her out to a deserted country road. June and Andy begin to have sex, but he passes out drunk. June leaves him in his truck and walks out into a snow storm, later dying of exposure. While Andy did not kill June outright, he cares little about her beyond using her for sex, and he is certainly complicit in her death. Andy represents the general disrespect for women that is seen throughout the novel, and, more specifically, he embodies the oppressive force of the white man on Native American women.
