  • Sonny Tuttle killed in auto accident

    Sorry to report that traditional dancer, Sonny Tuttle, was killed in a single vehicle accident near Hungry Horse on Saturday, July 25th. Sonny failed to make a turn, hit a guard rail, and rolled his vehicle. Sonny was a Lakota who resided in Lander, Wyoming, where he operated "Red Nations Art." He was 77.

    In 1961, Sonny and I shared quarters in a rooming house in Albuquerque, where we both were attending the University of New Mexico.

    Gledanh,

    I am so sorry to hear this. I have known him all my life.

    Sonny Tuttle is credited with the origination and construction of the Indian Village at the New Mexico State Fairgrounds. He is also credited with helping to bring the powwow tradition to New Mexico.

    Powwows will continue to evolve in many directions. It is inevitable.
