The Kiowas Gourd Dance

  • Kiowa stories tell the tale of a young man who while separated from the rest of the tribe for many days. Approached a hill and heard an unusual kind of singing coming from the other side. He saw a red wolf singing and dancing on its hind legs. The man listened to the songs all afternoon and through the night and when morning came, the wolf spoke to him and told him to take the dance and songs back to the Kiowa people. The "howl" at the end of each gourd dance song is a tribute to the red wolf.
