Legendary poet, writer, and scholar N. Scott Momaday has spent a lifetime introducing the world to Native American culture, and over the next few years, his message will reach even further. With two new documentaries on the way, Momaday’s life and work will continue to be woven into the fabric of the American experience. Directed by his daughter Jill, the documentary Return to Rainy Mountain, will tell the personal story of his life and career, focusing on family, cultural heritage, identity, and love. Additionally, PBS is producing an American Masters profile on Momaday due out in 2018. Momaday is also available for speaking engagements, keeping alive the oral tradition that has guided his life. His latest speech topics include:
- Native Wisdom: Principles for Living
- Encountering the Sacred: Heritage, Healing, and the Land
- The Language of Creativity: Writing, Painting, and Imagination
N. Scott Momaday won the National Medal of Arts and was the first Native American to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his book House Made of Dawn. Momaday has held tenured teaching posts at UC Berkeley, Stanford University, and the University of Arizona. He has been hailed as “the dean of American Indian writers” by The New York Times.
