In 1940 Brummett Echohawk, an eighteen-year-old Pawnee boy, joined the Oklahoma National Guard. Within three years his unit, a tough collection of depression era cowboys, farmers, and more than a thousand Native Americans, would land in Europe-there to distinguish themselves as, in the words of General George Patton, “one of the best, if not the best division, in the history of American arms.” During his service with the 45th Infantry, the vaunted Thunderbirds, Echohawk used the talent he had honed at Pawnee boarding school to document the conflict in dozens of annotated sketches. Join the Watauga Public Library for a free presentation. Everyone welcome! A book signing will follow the presentation
