Bedtime Buckaroos: TsaChayah

Posted on November 2, 2020 by Seth "from Marketing" Spillman in

Join us Monday evenings as we spark imaginations by hosting virtual bedtime stories with “Bedtime Buckaroos,” presented Paycom.

Story time plays a vital role in introducing children to the magic of books. Each week we’ll feature a new engaging Western story read by local authors, community leaders, traditional storytellers and Museum staff.

How The Turtle Got Its Squares is a traditional Caddo Indian story that reaches back through countless generations into the Caddo past in what is now Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas and Oklahoma. In those days much of the entertainment and education of Caddos took the form of stories and songs that were passed from generation to generation in the Caddo language. They explained the natural world, history, and moral lessons.

About the Reader

Chase Earles is one of the only Caddo potters working today. He says of his pottery, “My traditional Caddo pottery is built from hand-made local and native clays. Most of the clay I use comes from sources on the White, Washita, and Red River that I harvested and processed using ancient methods.
