Native American Writers Share

Christmas Essays and Poems
Candles and bubble lights evoke memories of Christmas.

The Native American Comprehensive Plan offers two original written works by Native American United Methodist writers from across our connection. These writers share their work with the express intention of making these resources available for use in worship services within Native churches and for the general church. The authors hold the copyright to each resource and any further use beyond worship services must be with permission from each author.

  • Messiah's Grand Entry is a poem by Rev. Roger Scott, a member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma. His poetic interpretation of Luke 2:8-11 draws upon his experiences from the pow wow culture within Native America.
  • A Child's Memory of Christmas is an essay by Daphine Locklear Strickland. Ms. Stricklnad is a member of Triad Native American United Methodist Church in Greensboro, North Carolina. She is affiliated with the Lumbee and Tuscarora tribes.
