MEETING THE DIVA!-- Arigon is a surprise guest at the Autry Museum's Annual Gala!

Dr. Momaday ROCKS!

N. Scott Momday, his wife Barbara and Arigon had a lovely chat outside the tented dining area of the Autry Museum of Western Heritage on Friday night. "I'm excited to get my picture taken with YOU," said Dr. Momaday. His beautiful daughter, Jill had attended one of the performances of "The Indolent Boys" at the Autry and had anxiously told her father about the great radio production. Dr. Momaday received a Humanitarian Award from the Autry Center of Western Heritage-- the new name following the merger of the Autry Museum with the excellent Southwest Museum.

Hey It's a REAL Indian! AAAY!Oh, yeh, and they also honored Kevin Costner, who was just two tables away from Arigon. "It pays to have friends," yakked Arigon. "Mrs. Sandra Horse invited me to come with her, as her husband Michael was out of town at an art show. She didn't feel like going by herself, so she dragged me along." Arigon said it was most awesome being seated at the table with Grace Boyd, who many of you know is the wife of the late Bill Boyd, who portrayed the famous cowboy Hopalong Cassidy. "She was so generous -- and such a great storyteller. It was neat to hear the story of how she met her husband and that he proposed to her on their third date. He was going to ask her to marry him on their first date, but didn't want to scare her off!"

Arigon also hooked up with her friends Randy Reinholz and Jean Bruce Scott from Native Voices At The Autry. " [FYI: Native Voices is having a three day event on November 14, 15 & 16 featuring ALL NEW plays at the Autry. Mark your calendars, kids!] Jean Bruce Scott was instrumental in Kevin Costner getting into the movie business. They went to college together and she helped him find an agent. I'm telling you -- this business is all about relationships." The Autry Gala also had lots of NDN talent around -- including Glenn and Darren Ahaitty (Kiowas) who did some fine singing before the dinner. Other notables spotted in the audience were host Bob Eubanks, movie critic Leonard Maltin, "Indolent Boys" producer Lori Tubert, Southern California Indian Center's Paula Starr, Floyd Westerman and Screen Actors Guild President Melissa Gilbert. Ahhh....Hollywood. The Gala raised over $850,000 dollars towards the new Center -- plus a whole heckuva of a lot of money to pay for buses to bring in kids from inner city schools to visit the Autry Center.
