I’m a Shoshone-Bannock poet, playwright, performer, traditional storyteller, tour guide and lecturer on Northwest tribal culture.   I offer guided tours to the She Who Watches petroglyphs on the Columbia Gorge, as well as to the Warm Springs Indian Reservation in central Oregon’s high desert country.  I conduct workshops, traditional storytelling performances, dramatic monologues and lectures on such issues as cultural understanding and awareness, drug and alcohol abuse, and mental health.  I enjoy working with both children and adults in educational or other settings.  I am a published short story writer, poet and playwright, and  I serve as a consultant to the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian. I live in Portland, Oregon, with my wife, Carol, my son, John, and my daughter, Se-ah-dum and her daughter.

you made your nets
 
& tested the knots
 
seeing that they held.
 
little did you know
 
what was to hold you
 
after the sound of
 
water falling
 
over what
 
used to be.
