There There: Part IV: Loother and Lony Summary & Analysis

Loother and Lony walk around the field looking for Orvil, bored of sitting up in the stands. Drawn to the sound of the singing in the drum group, they go towards the noise, hoping to find a lemonade stand along the way. Soon, they turn around after hearing people screaming far away.
As the first signs of chaos begin to spread throughout the powwow, Tommy Orange shows how each of his major characters process the uncanny shift in the day’s events—and where they are in proximity to the violence.
