Story submitted by Lebert Taunah
My name is Lebert Taunah, I am of Kiowa and Comanche descent. My teepee has been painted to honor all of my family. At the top of the teepee are eagles. They are highly respected by both tribes. The teepee ﬂaps have stars on them, which in Comanche is “Beaming Stars.” Our family name is a very old Comanche name, as well as the rest of my family names, illustrated on the teepee. The colors are blue, red and yellow, our Comanche colors. Over the door opening is a snake. The story told is that this is when we left the Shoshone at Snake River to come south after a ﬁght. The reason I picked a diamondback rattler snake, is that we respect this snake for it’s power. Above the snake are two bees, I come from the Penatu Ka Clan of the Comanche, which means quick stinger. We’d go into battle fast and sting you like a bee. I also chose War Shields to put around the teepee, because my Kiowa name is Ki’Kon. It means Black Shield. My grandmother Winfred Bointy Satepeahtaw gave me this name. She was from the Warrior Clan, in which Lonewolf came from. They would carry these shields into battle and never gave up ﬁghting. My family names are inside these shields. The front shields are “Beaming Star” my family name. On the other side is ‘Satepeahtaw’ which is (Gigging Bear). When the Kiowa’s lived in Yellowstone before they moved south; they told a story about a bear that was coming down from the mountains and killing the Kiowa people. A young brave told his Kiowa people he was going to go to the bear’s cave to kill the bear, and he did just that. From that time on his name was “Gigging Bear” or Satepeahtaw The next shield is Tapbotosahvit (White Rabbit) great great of Lebert Taunah. Bert Taunah or “Wank We” or (Hunter) was my grandfather. The next shield is Homovich for my grandmother Flora Homovich Taunah or Peawipeah (Big Woman). Which is also an old Comanche name meaning (Beavers Den or Beaver). My great great grandfather was Titchywy. His wife was Permansu. Wook Kah nah was their daughter The next war shield is To-
moyaketu for my oldest grandson, it means Thunder, it ﬁts him well. Shawn Michael Taunah Fogel is his name. At the bottom of the teepee are triangles, they represent the Wichita Mountains or Red Teepee for my Kiowa great great grandfather Santana which was a War name. When his son went on the war path he gave him his name and he took his sons name Taquodlety (Red Teepee) as his name as told by Winifred Bointy Satepeahtaw his great granddaughter. The war pony is on the teepee because we loved our horses. I was happy with the way the artist painted this war pony. He looks like our family horse, which we raised and bottle fed. We named him San’d’ay after the great trickster of Kiowa tribe San’d’ay would have made a great War pony. The eagle on the teepee is the animal our tribes believe in. The buffalo skull is for the great love and respect and passing of a great animal. The bison on the teepee is the animal our tribes loved and respected the most. At the top of the teepee is a half moon, a sign for rain, beneath this is my nephew’s name. “Esah hivo” which is wolf paw prints on the snow or Milky Way. Below this is the great Comanche Shield. Also on the front of the teepee are black and yellow slash marks for the Kiowa’s. In the middle of this sign is a Sun. We always point our teepees to the rising sun, in the back is a setting sun. The Kiowa’s believe greatly in the Sun, Moon and the Stars. The artist who painted my teepee is Larry Harris. I conveyed my thoughts into his artistic hands. He painted my teepee just to what my visions of it were. The Taunah teepee is everything I invisioned it to look like when it was painted. Larry is now a part of our family. His Comanche name is “Old Man that Paint.” I hope my Comanche and Kiowa people will enjoy and love this teepee as I do. Its my way of honoring my family and my two great tribes. Lebert Taunah Comanche name: Tho bit sie (Pretty Painter) Kiowa name: Ki’Ko’n (Black Shield)
Hotdog Feed Huge Success Over 800 hotdogs were served, not only to children, but elders and parents were also allowed to enjoy a hotdog. Other items were available such as: stuffed animals, candy, coloring books, drinking cups and stress reliever houses. The event was sponsored by the Comanche Nation CRYS Program.
