Video: N. Scott Momaday Reads Poetry and Tells Kiowa Stories at the Heard Museum

“My masters thesis focused primarily on N. Scott Momaday’s work–House Made of Dawn and The Way to Rainy Mountain.  He is the Native writer that has most influenced my fiction writing.  Not only do we both have a Kiowa/Cherokee connection, but we both, now, have a New Mexico connection.  An amazing man and a tremendous force […]

I like to cruise the Youtube and search for Native comedians in my “laugh often” frame of mind.  I stumbled upon a Native comedian I haven’t seen before.  His name is Tatanka Means.  One of my former Native staff at my previous employment mentioned that he knew him at one point, but I never sought […]

Kiowa Fiction: “Our Dance” a Contemporary Native American Story

Underground Culture: The Kiowa Gourd Dance

Here is a video that showcases gourd dance culture.  Gourd Dancing is a custom traditionally practiced by the Kiowa and Comanche, but we were gifted this dance from the Arapaho.  Because the dance is a gift we must dance it as a way of honoring that exchange. Today other tribes dance the gourd dance in their […]

Unexplainable Spirit!:  Floating Angels & Vanashing Men

This series follows the odd and peculiar things that have happened to me in my lifetime. These are occurrences that are “unexplainable” to me. I’d like to add, with this post, to a previous post that I had about ghosts. After writing the last one, I realized that I had left out two other occurrences. […]
