I suppose a little explaining is in order. What exactly is a “Running Wolf?” Okay, so you probably know about the concept of a wolf and how it can run, but that’s not what this is about. Running Wolf is the name my Grandmother gave me. She was supposedly a Muskogee Indian. I don’t know how much or whatever, but enough that my cousin is running a Native American Corporation and isn’t getting thrown in jail.
I liked the name, so I’ve kept it. It feels “Indian” enough to make me happy, a nod at my heritage. I’ve never been to the Muskogee Reservation. I’ve never even been to Oklahoma. Doesn’t matter, the Muskogee where unceremoniously booted out of the southeast on the now famous “Trail of Tears.” My family had married into an Irish Protestant family and were spared the journey, although some of the single men hid out in Arkansas for a decade or so.
History aside, I enjoy writing and hope you enjoy reading my stuff. I’ve always got an opinion, but haven’t a clue how to get my writing out there in front of people. If you have an idea, let me know. I’d love to increase my readership somehow. Come on, help me stroke my ego.
