The Journey of Tai-me

The Journey of Tai-me

Description

'Tai-Me' is a traditional medicine bundle used by the Kiowa in their Sun Dance. The bundle has been handed down from generation to generation, through the nineteenth century and into the twentieth. N. Scott Momaday made this discovery when he began his journey to learn about the Kiowa and his paternal lineage. Following the death of his beloved Kiowa grandmother, Aho, in 1963 Momaday set out on his quest to learn and document the Kiowa heritage, stories, and folklore. His Kiowa-speaking father, artist Al Momaday, served as translator when Scott visited tribal elders to ask about their memories and stories. Scott gathered these stories into ""The Journey of Tai-Me"". Originally published only in a limited edition in 1967, ""The Journey of Tai-Me"" is recognized as the basis from which Momaday's more popular ""The Way to Rainy Mountain"" grew. When compiling ""The Way to Rainy Mountain"", published by the University of New Mexico Press, Momaday added his own memories and some poems.
