INDIAN REC CENTER

By MAGGIE MATHIS

Source: Maggie Mathis

We came from Louisiana
a white youth group
with puppets
to Share the Gospel
I was nine years old.

That’s what they called it
in Oklahoma in 1978. Indian?
The “INDIAN BAPTIST CHURCH.”
What type of Indian, I wonder now.
You can tell in the pictures
we are on a reservation.
