Description

Poteet Victory is a rags-to-riches story of historical significance.

Through his efforts on behalf of the tribes, Poteet became one of the most-honored Native Americans of the past half-century. Abandoned as a child, he beat the odds to become a renowned painter, living in Santa Fe, New Mexico, who has sold thousands of paintings for millions of dollars. Authentically presented in his own words, Poteet’s story is funny, entertaining, and inspiring.

In Poteet Victory by J. Robert Keating, we experience life with one who has done it all. How does someone who grew up in Idabel, Oklahoma become a member of a hippie commune on the Hawaiian island of Maui? How does that person find themselves living and working among the stars in New York City—teaching Andy Warhol the finer points of silk screening? Back in Oklahoma and with the support of many tribal leaders, Poteet became controversial when he showed the truth and the real suffering of his ancestors on the Trail of Tears. Learn about this man and be challenged by his life.

A Note From the Publisher

J. Robert Keating is married with two children and three grandchildren. He grew up in Oklahoma and now lives in Fort Worth, Texas. After years of writing in the cyber-thriller genre, he turned to the challenges of documenting the life of a truly inspiring individual. He says of Poteet and his wife, Terry, “I was very fortunate to have gotten to know them and to have enjoyed their hospitality. As we shared our histories, our thoughts, and our feelings, we became like family. It was an honor and a joy to be allowed into their lives.”
