Standing Bear Museum & Education Center presents Clyde Otipoby

Posted by Austin on 11/16/2015

Clyde Otipoby is a Comanche Indian who grew up at Chilocco Indian School where his father was a teacher. Following four years service in the United States Air Force, Clyde himself became a teacher and for thirty-four years he taught art in Ponca City elementary schools. Although he retired from PC Public Schools in 2002, he now teaches two afternoons a week at Ponca City Christian Academy.

In addition to the utilitarian pottery he has come to be known for, Clyde also does clay sculptures, painting, and pencil sketching. Clyde has participated in many area pow wows as a straight dancer. When he dances, he carries a hand-crafted quirt in honor of his horseback-riding Comanche tribe.

The Standing Bear Museum will be open from 9-5 on Nov. 20th and from 10-2 on the 21st. Clyde will be at the museum at various times throughout both days and hopes to see many friends and former students.
