The way to rainy mountain Momaday N. Scott. About the author- --- Momaday N. Scott who is wholly absorbed in his Native Indian culture throughout his life. He was born with an Indian origin
“The Indian world is full of aesthetic values, art. My father was an artist, a painter, and he taught painting to the children at Jemez Pueblo. They exhibited all over the world. They became famous for their art. He once said to me, ”You know, Scott, I have never known an Indian child who couldn‘t draw.“ I believe that. I haven’t either. That seems intrinsic somehow. That‘s a real part of the Indian world, this love of symmetry and composition. It’s a great thing. That has been important to me as well. Indian people have a strong sense of humor. It‘s not easily understood by other people, but it’s there and I love that. That‘s been a part of my life too.”
