A program that I have was put out by the Kiowa Gourd Clan and is titled "Kiowa Gourd Clan", 2nd Edition, 1996. This has a daily activity schedule for July 2,3,4, but also has quality information on the history and the story behind the songs and dance. It has a number of good photos.

I'm not too familiar with the home dance. Perhaps other programs have been printed.
