Rebekkah Autaubo is a tribal member of the Kiowa Tribe of Oklahoma. She is a life-long poet and a fan of Patti Smith. Rebekkah appreciates people who do not shy away from calling things out for what they are. She is a creative writing major at the Institute of American Indian Arts. However, Rebekkah plans to further her education at a different university – eventually establishing herself among other published poets. She uses her experiences as a Native American woman as an influence to tell her story through poetry and other writings. Rebekkah comes from a family of talented, devoted, and inspirational people – especially her father, who has always encouraged her writings and artistic pursuits.
