The State

Tommy Orange

Thomas is half Cheyenne, and since he was born he's been tapping his toes and fingers. He didn't think anything of it until he actually started drumming, many years later. When he was invited to drum at the Big Oakland Powwow, he didn't intend to go because he was ashamed to see anyone from work since he got fired from the Indian Center. But there's never been anything like drumming for him, so maybe he'll go after all.
