Legendary novelist, scholar, and poet N. Scott Momaday has spent a lifetime introducing the world to Native American culture and heritage.
The only Native American to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize, Momaday won for his novel House Made of Dawn. A UNESCO Artist for Peace and recipient of the National Medal of Arts, Momday received a 2017 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival presented by actor Robert Redford.
The documentary, Return to Rainy Mountain, by his daughter, filmmaker Jill Momaday, is a personal account of his life, career, and a personal and cultural history of the Kiowa people. PBS is producing an American Masters profile on Momaday due out in 2018.
