Speaking of the arts (see previous post), Oklahoma Gov. Brad Henry has named N. Scott Momaday as Oklahoma's poet laureate.
Momaday, 73, is one of the state's literary treasures. He is best known for his novel, House Made of Dawn, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1969. Momaday grew up in southwestern Oklahoma and is a member of the Kiowa tribe.
Here's to Scott Momaday and his work, words that have inspired millions of readers, young and old.
