Making Connections to Myth and Folktale: The Many Ways to Rainy Mountain
Following the model of N. Scott Momadays "The Way To Rainy Mountain", students write three-voice narratives based on Kiowa folktale, an interview with Elder, and personal connection to themes in Momadays book or a theme that arises in the folktale or interview. Momadays model for remembering and personal involvement in folktales, mythologies, and tales of personal heritage is presented as a key to connecting on a personal level with the stories of ones past.
