Like many Plains Indian tribes, the Kiowa Elders socialized
and taught the young through oral traditions. As many tribe members move
from tribal lands and reservations, our multi-generations old link of shared
stories and experiences is in jeopardy.
The grandchildren no longer live close to grandparents to learn of thier culture and past.
Here we will post stories shared by Elders as they have shared with grandchildren for generations. Each a story shared by tribe Elders that wanted the stories preserved for future generation.
Eventually, I hope to have a means for others to share thoughts, video or audio stories to this site. We all are critical links in our mult-generational oral traditions. It is our turn to share stories, songs and dances to forge the next link.
