About Me An observer and a critic I guess. I very rarely become involved unless the situation affects me or my brood directly. I depend on people possessing the intelligence to always do the right thing. Most of the time I'm disappointed but no matter what happens it doesn't prevent me from keeping the faith. Not sympathetic toward the alternate life-style.

Wild Fact About Me That I'm not going to be everyone's "cup of tea". I've been called a purist, a stinker, a historian, a SOB, a medicineman, a wanker, a renaissance man, a jackass, a tower of strength, a vagabond, a prince, a martyr, Sheherezad, a rock star, and even Jesus. I am none of these.
My Philosophy My late father had a favorite saying which I have adopted: "Tell it like it is." I have also adopted other adages such as, "If you talk the talk you had better walk the walk", also, "Credit must be put where credit is due". All other wisdoms proceed from these.
What Gives Me Hope That one day I won't have to live in such a corrupt world.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by This question asked if I was President.--Send all the non-native people in America back to their lands of origins then erect a thousand foot high wall around the country's perimeter. Or, make it possible for space travel so that all non-natives can leave to settle other planets and leave this world to its native people--All I really want is to just take care of my own little acre of the world.
What/who changed my life and why Event: Attending the National Indian Youth Council in 1969 & receiving my traditional Kiowa name in 1972. Book: "The Holy Bible". Movie: "Flap" with Anthony Quinn. Person(s): My Auntie & Uncle. Because: Each helped me to define who I was and the world in which I had to live.
What Bugs Me Non-Indians posing as urban-medicinemen, That in '06 America still doesn't get it, Sport teams that use Indian mascots, Being called "chief", Geico's Caveman ad.It's based on Indians, Hypocrites, Non-Kiowa plagerzing our culture/history  
Passions Trips to Wyoming and Montana, Trips to Hueco Tanks, Texas iceberg Pepsi or Coke, Bote, Skillet popped popcorm w/ real butter, Chum Gum, Bazooka logs, Black Cow sucker, Napping near a windy window, Winning free spins on my favorite slot, Cherry spots on wooden stove  
Inspirations Seeing dedication embodied in people, Seeing the Creator working in my life, Natural landmarks and natural events, Elder saying that they want to go home  
What Scares Me That one day all my elders will be gone, High Places, Being here for the end of the world, Violence of the so-called rap culture, Stupidity of America to perpetuate rap, The arrogance of the Euro-American  
  Favorites
Role Models People standing up for their people, People preserving their unique cultures, People who live their lives tradittional, People who know themselves, accept themselves for who they are

    Efficient use of the sun's energy is not necessarily a modern phenomena. Many centuries ago the Anasazi Indians of Southern Colorado found a way to capture the oblique rays of a winter sun. They simply built their stone houses against the south slope of canyon walls. The remains of their solar dwellings  are still with us today.
