Post The full list....(Categories 1-11)

And the Winners are For the Very Best in Indian Country
Annual List showcases the cream of the crop

TULSA OK
The staff of the Native American Times 10/30/2003

And the Winners are… It’s that time again, when the readers speak and their voice is heard. Every year the paper asks the readers who they think is the best at what they do. The answers are published for your enjoyment and in some cases pride. In some categories it amounts to bragging rights for the year. Like all other honors and achievements it is something that can’t be taken away from you.

1. Favorite Indian Actor. Why this is always first category is a mystery. But this year was no surprise. Cherokee Indian and Oklahoma born Wes Studi is the winner in this tough category. From Pow Wow Highway to Skinwalkers, Studi has been one of the busiest Native actors around. One honor he should have received is a nomination for the Academy Awards for his star turn as “Magua” in “Last of the Mohicans.” Studi had this to say about his win: Thank you so much for the news!! I would have seen it soon in the next publication of your wonderful paper, but this notification is the “pick-me-up” of the day. And of course I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those readers for their votes, as I know this is a “hotly” contested category of your “Favorites”. I will of course continue to do my absolute best at my chosen profession, in the hopes that I can maintain the level of support the Indian community has so graciously bestowed upon my efforts. While I do not consider myself a ‘role model’, I am greatly appreciative of being seen as such and can only attribute this to the fact that I, having searched for many years, have found a career, "job" if you will, that I truly enjoy. I hope to be able to do "acting" for many years to come and again I thank each and every reader for their past and continued support. And I thank the Creator for the fact that we as Indians have created a community larger than our own respective Tribes. Together through individual effort, we can go far in this life. WaDo. Wes Studi Second place goes to Graham Greene who teamed with Studi in “Dances with Wolves.” Third place goes to Adam Beach who starred with Studi in “Skinwalkers.”

2. Favorite Indian Actress Tantoo Cardinal is your favorite on the big and small screen. The Canadian actress is “metis” a Cree term for “mixed blood”. Cardinal is part Cree and part Chippewa Indian. Her movies include Legends of the Fall, Smoke Signals and numerous television appearances. Reader fondness for Cardinal is not limited to this poll; an Internet search reveals several pages devoted to her. Elaine Miles, a Cayuse-Nez Perce Indian who has also been in television and film, took second place honors and Irene Bedard, the daughter of an Inupiat Eskimo and a French Canadian/Cree who was the physical model for the Pocahontas character in the Disney films, came in third.

3. Favorite Indian Leader
(elected) Chickasaw Nation Governor Bill Anoatubby wins this category. Anoatubby, a Democrat, went to work for the Chickasaw Nation as an accountant after graduating from East Central University. He was elected tribal governor in 1987. Leroy Howard, Chief of the Seneca-Cayuga Tribe of Oklahoma, is the second favorite among Indian leaders and retiring Muscogee Creek Principal Chief Perry Beaver ranks third.

4. Favorite Indian Leader (unelected)The rare combination of artist sensitivity and political sensibilities nets Enoch Kelly Haney the number one spot in this category. A member of the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma, Haney served three terms as a member of the Oklahoma House of Representatives. He also owned and operated Haney, Inc., which is an art gallery and mail order business. He is a professional artist who has earned the title of Master Artist of the Five Civilized Tribes. A second place ranking is a testament to the staying power of former Cherokee Nation head Wilma Mankiller. Third place winner John Ballard is the former head of economic development for the Miami-based Modoc Tribe.

5. Favorite Indian Gaming Center – The Creek Nation facility on Riverside Drive in Tulsa garnered the top spot, and its planned expansion should only make it more popular. The Delaware Tribe’s Gold River is your second favorite place to shoot for the moon and the multi- tribal ICOT Bingo Hall ranks third.

6. Favorite Indian Museum- They call Gilcrease America’s Museum, and it has a strong contingent of Native American fans as well. Thomas Gilcrease moved to Indian Country when he was just a child in the late 1800’s. His mother's Creek Indian ancestry enabled the family to live in the Creek Nation, where Thomas grew to adulthood. Gilcrease traveled extensively in Europe during the 1920s and 1930s. His visits to European museums apparently inspired him to create his own collection. Pride in his American Indian heritage and interest in the history of the American West provided a focus for his collecting. The museum that bears his namesake now features the largest collection of Western Art in the world. The Kiowa Tribal Museum and Woolaroc came in second and third, respectively.

7. Favorite Indian Art Gallery Make it two in a row for Gilcrease, with The Art Market and Indian Territory rounding out the top three.

8. Favorite Indian Painter When it comes to Native American art, it appears everyone has a favorite. This year Cliff Doyeto snagged first place honors, with Ben Harjo, Jr. coming in second. Harjo is a Seminole-Shawnee who has won numerous awards including the 1987 Red Earth Grand Award, the 1993 Heard Museum’s 34th Annual Featured Artist, and the Featured Artist in 1992 and 1993 for the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian’s Annual Aspen Benefit and the Gold Medal Award at the 1990 American Indian Cowboy Artists Wichita Show. Robbie McMurty is third.

9. Favorite Indian Sculptor He is your favorite unelected Indian leader and favorite Indian sculptor. Kelly Haney wins first place, followed by Ted Creepingbear and Parker Baydill.

10 Favorite Indian Performer Indigenous. The hard rock and blues that almost every “of age” Indian can say, I saw them at the…, should be picked number one performer for Indian Country. They should be for simple fact that the quartet of family members has made their way across the continent to venues that reek of Indian preference before and after the concert. This band is so impressive in concert, often ladies will offer to take their man out for the sheer hidden pleasure of watching three Indian men get down on stage… Horse, Mato, and Pte have inspired many fantasies. And men, you aren’t off the hook either, all of you with a hidden agenda. Men go for the music, because their lady is paying but they secretly hope catch a glimpse of Wanbdi (which is kind of hard because girl stays hidden) on the drums, the Sheena Easton of Indian Country. If you haven’t heard them live go to their Web site, www.indigenousrocks.com, for concert listings or to order their latest self titled album that comes as close to live as they could get without actually playing at your local tribal casino. 2nd place–Congratulations to Amy Tallchief from Native American Times. Tallchief is an educator and an actress. She is from the Osage Nation and is currently working as a Cultural Interpreter for the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian. Find out more about Tallchief at www.aifisf.com/Talent/tallchief. 3rd place–Congratulations to Litefoot from Native American Times. Litefoot is known by all of Indian country for his successful music and acting career. He is also the president and founder of three successful corporations. Find out more about Native America’s first rapper at www.redvinyl.com.

11. Favorite Indian Musician The leader of the Chebon Tiger Band didn’t have to pull any strings to win in this category. The right-handed guitar player makes frequent appearances at Oklahoma festivals, a possible indication as to his popularity. Tiger is a blues guitarist in the tradition of such greats as Muddy Waters and John Mayall. He took first place last year in this contest. Terry Tsotigh is second and Tom Ware in third in the musical trio.

The full list....(Categories 12-29)

12. Favorite Indian Activist Susan Shown Harjo. Susan Shown Harjo’s warpath in Indian Country has counted coup on numerous key federal Indian policies since 1975. Her war whoop is equally mighty as her determination. Woe to thee who dares to tread on sacred sites, religious freedom, or cultural property rights. Ms. Harjo, from the Cheyenne and Holdogee Muscogee nations, is a mother, a poet, a writer, a lecturer, a curator, and one hell of a policy advocate. Just ask the National Congress of the American Indian who she served as executive director for from 1984 to 1989 or the Carter Administration whose hair she pulled in 1979 while authoring the President’s report to Congress on American Indian Religious Freedom. Her victories are numerous, too many to list and they impact the lives of millions of Native Americans whether they know it or not. Ms. Harjo is currently the president and executive director of The Morning Star Institute, a national Indian rights organization since 1984. Susan Shown Harjo, you go girl! 2nd place–Congratulations to Russell Means from Native American Times. Means has been on the activist scene for decades. He is one of the founding members of the American Indian Movement and served as the organizations first president. Means’ actions during his time with AIM brought worldwide attention to the political, economic, and social injustices being committed against Indian people. Find out more about Means at www.russellmeans.com. 3rd place– Congratulations to Alice Whitecloud from Native American Times. Whitecloud is a crucible for justice for all Indian people. She works without notice on behalf of many Indian families suffering from racism or discrimination. She is a founding member of Tulsa Indian Coalition Against Racism. She is currently educating Union High School about the problems associated with their Indian mascot.

13. Favorite Indian Elder The last Comanche Code-Talker, Charles Chibitty of Tulsa, places a deserving first. The venerable elder was one of 17 Oklahoma Comanches attached to the 4th Infantry Division, 4th Signal Corps, during WWII. They made the D-Day landing and served as communicators through St. Lo, Huertgen Forest, Battle of the Bulge and Germany without a single mistake or fatality to their group. In 1999, Chibitty was presented with the Knowlton Award in recognition of his significant contributions to military intelligence efforts. Chibitty was born near Medicine Park, Okla. on Nov. 20, 1921. Second place winner Lorena K. DeRoin was born February 9, 1915. She is a member of the Otoe-Missouria Tribe and belongs to the White Pigeon Clan. DeRoin was the 1999-2001 National President of the American War Mothers Association. DeRoin was elected National President in October 1999, at the National American War Mothers Convention that was held in Tulsa. Cedric Star placed third.

14. Favorite Religious Leader
Choctaw tribal member Bill Thompson used to preach at the All-Tribes Community Church in Tulsa and developed a reputation based on his upbeat personality. Lee Lawhead came in second. Earnest Rawbird was third.

15. Favorite Indian Gift Shop Lyon’s Indian Gifts in Tulsa is your favorite place to buy authentic knick-knacks. The Kiowa Museum, a winner in at least two other categories, placed a respectable second place; with Blue Buffalo bringing up third.

16. Favorite Indian Owned Company – Simple Simon C.E.O. B.J. Dumond has apparently found a successful formula in his quest to make the perfect pizza. The Cherokee man’s pies are apparently considered the best in Indian Country. Simple Simon's Pizza now has 200 locations covering 11 states. Tiger Natural Gas came in second. Tiger manages natural gas strategies for hospitals, local distribution companies, commercial and industrial customers, NASA and state and federal facilities. Rez Dog comes in third. Some say it’s because of the clothes, but the Whisper hears it’s because of the Rez Dog Girls.

17. Favorite Powwow (large and in-charge) Gathering of Nations. This “gathering” is so huge their Web site actually counts down the days till the next one. It’s hosted every year at The Pit, at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, N.M., and every year it gets packed. People move inch by inch, shoulder to shoulder, in a circle around the powwow arena far below. Anybody who has ever been there, Indian and non-Indian, has surely thought out loud or to their self, I have never seen so many Indians in one place. The contest money is enough to bring dancers out of the woodwork whose clothes haven’t seen the light of day in decades and to keep the regular powwow crew coming back for more. The name, Gathering of Nations, couldn’t be a truer description of the sea of brown that will begin rotating around The Pit in exactly 204 days and counting according their Web site at, www.gatheringofnations.com. Funny thing about “Gatherings” (that’s what the regulars call it) it clears out pretty quick after 11p.m. Hmmmmm, I wonder if that has anything to do with finding, “The Nine”? 2nd place–Red Earth came in at a healthy second. The Osage war dances in Gray Horse have a ways to go before they can deter all of Red Earths patrons. Red Earth is known for being the largest powwow in Oklahoma, now that’s a pretty big feat. 3rd place–IICOT is growing every year and obviously giving two monster powwows some competition. The air conditioning might have something to do with that. Good luck next year and keep growing. More contest money always works.

18. Favorite Powwow (small)
Haskell Indian Nations Annual Powwow. This powwow performs double duty and this is probably why it was picked as the best small powwow in Indian country. First, there is decent contest money and a guaranteed good head staff who are usually alumni. Secondly, Haskell has been educating young Indian adults since before the turn of the century. So it serves as a reunion for many. The generations who have graced their halls come from more than 150 nations and this diversity is reflected in the powwow arena and of course afterwards when everyone makes their way to various local establishments accustomed to Indian clientele. The forty-nine songs begin sometime around 4 a.m. at some place called “teepees.” The powwow usually happens Mother’s Day weekend though some people won’t bring their mothers—that is of course unless mamma went to Haskell too and you’ll be lucky if mamma wants to take you. 2nd place–Congratulations to Kiowa Gourd Clan from Native American Times. Across the nations if you say Gourd Dance you mean Kiowa because they can sure get down. It’s no wonder Kiowa Gourd Clan would come in at a close second. Maybe if more people told more Kiowa Gourd Clan stories they could knock Haskell out of the first place slot. 3rd place–Congratulations to Stroud from Native American Times. Stroud is one heck of a powwow. This powwow means business and competition can be pretty tough. Oklahoma summer’s are full of powwows that every “good powwow Indian” should try to attend at least once in their life and Stroud is definitely one of them.

19. Favorite Fancy Dancer according to our readers is Mike Pahsetopah. Still lighting fast, this veteran dancer keeps getting better with age. He is also trying his wings at the chicken dance. Equally fast Dwight Whitebuffalo comes in second followed by Butch McIntosh.

20. Favorite Lady’s Buckskin is Marilyn Bread. With equal touches of grace and beauty, she is one of the most popular dancers on the pow wow circuit. Alisabeth Narcomie comes in second with Sandra Moore finishing third.

21. Favorite Straight Dancer this year is Charles Gover. Voters went for the dignified manner in which this veteran dances. Ralph Hammond comes in second and there was no clear third place with Gover and Hammond taking in the preponderance of the votes.

22. Favorite Fancy Shawl Dancer for 2003 is Shelly Bointy. A great dancing run in the family and it certainly shows up in Shelly. Alisabeth Narcomey is the second favorite and at third place is Danielle Sigwing.

23. Favorite Northern Traditional Dancer is the tall Pat Moore, The son of legendary dancer Pete Moore Sr., Pat is carrying on the family tradition of great dancing. Bringing home second place is Kevin Marland.

24. Favorite Ladies Southern Cloth…is Charlene Cozad. This Osage woman is one of the toughest competitors in ladies cloth. She has only gotten better over the years and this year our readers believe she is best. Margaret Blalock is second best and third is Sandy Tate.

25. Favorite Grass Dancer is Rookie Wilson followed by Chris Whitewolf.

26. Favorite Jingle Dress Dancer is Willow Jack. Second place belongs to Mollie King and third place goes to Mary Carter.

27. Favorite Shell Shaker is Joanna Gibson. Very athletic, Joanna is a mainstay around many ceremonial fires. Lou White is the second place finisher and third belongs to Jean Runnels.

28. Favorite Stomp Dance Leader is James Squirrel. Coming right behind James is Kugee Supernaw at second place and Vernon Atkins coming in third.

29. Favorite M.C. in Indian Country is Archie Mason. His good-natured humor and respect for all makes him an easy pick. Culturally well versed, Mason is renowned educator and champion Straight Dancer. He was a tail-dancer for the Greyhorse District for the Osage Ceremonial Dances. He walks it like he talks it and people like him. The legendary Tonkei is the second choice and the respected Hammond Motah is third.

30. Favorite Drum Group (So.)
Southern Boyz. Known across the country for their youthful talent and good looks, these boys will be the drum group at any big powwow belting out songs they have composed. And if you don’t recognize them by their fresh jams just look for the drum group with more than enough Indian girls crowding around like they’re giving away free meat pies. But don’t let the name of their group mislead you; these men should not be mistaken for boys. A few of the groups members are single dads who take being fathers as serious, maybe even more serious, as they do singing and drumming. Their success has earned them bragging rights in several states and the opportunity to turn a traditional talent into a present day career with enough income to devote their full energies. 2nd place–Congratulations to Da Boys from Native American Times. This big drum goup with a little name travels around the country to share some southern style songs with all those worthy. With all the groups in the state Da Boys have certainly made a name for themselves in a short time. 3rd place– Congratulations to Cozad/Southern Thunder from Native American Times. Now that’s how you do this! Man do these guys know how to lay down the law! If you haven’t heard of them then what have you been listening to? If you get chance to be at powwow where these guys are and your chances are good because they are everywhere, I got three words for you—make a tape.

31. Favorite Drum Group (No.)
Redlands. Don’t be fooled by these guys, they might sound like they’re from up north but in all actuality they are straight southern out of Tulsa, Okla. Redlands is a favorite northern style drum group in Oklahoma who is often called up to sing at powwows. Tony Arkeketa, the lead singer, promotes his group whenever he can so their weekends are usually occupied—good business for any drum group. If you haven’t heard these guys yet, don’t worry because their momentum is picking up and no doubt being voted Best of Indian Country by Native American Times will do wonders for their request line. Congratulations Tony and the Gang. 2nd place–Congratulations to the Tha Tribe from Native American Times. Move and around pick up your feet because these guys are going to shake things up. Tha Tribe has some CD’s under their belt and travel all over the country. They are happening. 3rd place–Congratulations to Eyabay from Native American Times. These guys are it when it comes to northern style. Northern style dancers are comforted by their presence when they know these guys are doing their contest song for one reason only—they are goooood! And their CD’s make for great traveling tunes too.

32. Favorite Head Singer is Leonard Cozad. The Patriarch of the most talented singing family in Oklahoma still leads the way in this category. Another Kiowa Joe Fish DuPoint is second and third is Ponca Indian Jimmy Kemble.

33. Favorite Arena Director is a real pow wow favorite. Tony Killscrow is Oklahoma’s favorite Lakota. His leadership and spirit are coveted by the top pow wows. Second place is Wahoo Moore and third place goes to Dude Blalock.

34. Favorite 49 Song this year is “Party Time.” No mystery why this song is the favorite. Second place is “One Eyed Ford” and third was the ever popular “Pizza Song.”

35. Favorite Place to find a snag
Powwow. Well, who would have guessed? For Black folks it’s church and for Natives it’s powwows but powwows have many of the same traits as churches. For example, churches have holy songs and so do powwows. At church there are rituals or traditions, same thing at a powwow. And at church everyone dresses in his or her best, same thing at a powwow. But powwows have a few advantages over churches. At powwows you can circulate (very important to getting a good look) and take some time to do a little shopping. At powwows it gets dark, making it easier to make a move or to invite one. And at church there’s usually a priest or a reverend watching with fire and brimstone on his or her side. Fire and brimstone—not at a powwow. Powwows have MC’s and MC’s like powwows for the snagging opportunities too. They’re more likely to throw snagging pointers than fire and brimstone. And the best advantage to snagging at a powwow is the Forty-nine because that’s when you can finish what you started at the powwow. 2nd place–True Loves, a bar in Oklahoma City, Okla., is Indian Country’s second choice for finding something close to love. Now if that isn’t a cheesy name for a bar then what is? I guess if there isn’t a powwow or a church near by there is always True Loves.

36. Favorite Cook this year is Doletta Blalock. I guess everyone has gotten used to her culinary skills at IICOT pow wow. Second place goes to Minnie Moore and third goes to meat pie queen Tess Willie.

37. Best Indian Cowboy is Johnny Williams. Sorry couldn’t find any info on this cowboy. Second place goes to Spike Druper.

38. Favorite Indian Cowgirl Lynn McGuire. No, it’s not her Amazonian qualities mixed with too many pairs of ropers that have earned Lynn this title, it’s her extreme talent in the rodeo arena mixed with a love for the life of a cowgirl. Lynn was crowned Miss Indian Rodeo in 1982 and has won three Indian National Finals World Champion titles not to mention the regional awards that earned her the opportunity to compete at Finals. In 1980, she won her World Champion title in barrel racing. In 1993 and again 1995, she won World Championship titles for breakaway calf roping. She is also the only woman to compete at the INFR in the team-roping category. Lynn is from the Osage Nation in Pawhuska, Okla. When asked by Native American Times about what she thought about being Indian country’s favorite Indian cowgirl, Lynn had this to say, “Well, I think it’s great.” Now that’s a cowgirl. 2nd place–Congratulations to Charla Allen from Native American Times. Of Seneca and Cayuga descent, Rhodes has been doing the cowgirl thing all her life. Rhodes is from Pawhuska, Okla., and is also a close friend to Lynn McGuire. 3rd place–Congratulations to Janet Rhodes from Native American Times.

39. Favorite Indian Smoke Shop is Riverside Creek Nation Smoke Shop. If I had a nickel for every pack of cigarettes sold at that place, I’d probably drive across the parking lot to gamble at the casino. Second place goes to Two Turtles and third goes to the Apache Smokeshop.

40. Favorite Place to Buy a Giveaway Blanket is Lyons Indian Store in Tulsa. The old store is still a favorite for those getting ready for their specials. For those on a budget, the second most popular place picked was Dollar General with the Pawhuska Trading Post coming in third.

41. Best Place to go to college
Haskell Indian Nations University, Lawrence, K.S. Haskell is a higher education institute that has long served the educational needs of young Indian adults for generations which makes sense why it would be selected as Indian Country’s best place to go to college. But ask anyone who happened to go to school there what it was like and you will always get a smile before you get an answer. Haskell is that warm corner in the hearts of many who went there and made several life-long friends and maybe even a spouse or two, and yes maybe even three or four. And who could forget all those “Haskell babies.” The Haskell stories that abound in Indian Country are countless and each grows more extravagant each time it is retold. These stories are part of Haskell’s unspoken recruiting process. But whoever goes to Haskell to broaden their horizons will find many of the same things people before them have found; warm meals, a place to sleep and an education that will open doors to career opportunities. 2nd place–Congratulations to Bacone College from Native American Times.
3rd place–Congratulations to Northeastern State University from Native American Times.

42. Best Vo-Tech – The Oklahoma Department of Career and Technology Education in Stillwater placed first in our ready survey of the best Vo-Tech schools. The school offers programs and services in 29 technology center districts operating on 54 campuses, 400 comprehensive school districts, 25 skill centers and three juvenile facilities. Administrators say they have an enrollment of 138,042 students, split about evenly between men and women. Caddo-Kiowa Vo-Tech took second place honors and Green Country rounded out the top three.

43. Best Place to Buy a Book on Native American History – Chain stores dominated this category. Folks looking to learn about their heritage said they were more likely to go to Borders. Convenience may have been a factor here. There are more than 1,200 Borders and Waldenbooks stores around the world, with four in Oklahoma. The company boasts 32,000 employees. Borders Group, Inc., is a publicly held Fortune 500 company with sales of $3.4 billion. The locally owned Kiowa Museum is second and another chain, B. Dalton, placed third.
