am KO-NA Foster Kalama (Wasco/Nisqually/Pitt River/ Klickitat/Nez Perce/Hawaiian), a traditional singer, flute player, and
hand drummer as well as an artist, whose work includes pen and ink drawings; wood, elk and deer antler carvings; the making
and illustrating of traditional hand drums; and the creation of Native American regalia.
I am honored that you chose to visit my site and hope you will enjoy reading my story, learning
about my art, music and other activities, and even buying some of my work!
You can learn a bit about my life and the ways of my tribe on the Biography page.
The Art page gives information about the variety of my art work, that includes pen and ink drawings
of the ways of the People of the River; the wood, elk and deer antler carvings I enjoy creating, especially for talking sticks;
illustrated hand drums; regalia; and other items.
The Music page will expand when my CD is ready to be distributed. I play hand drums, a variety
of types of flutes, and I sing traditional music.
You can find more information about talking sticks, Stick Indians (featured in some of my pen and
ink drawings), Little People, flutes, drums, and traditional music on the Links page.
I am available for performances of my music, shows of my art, and inspirational lectures for youth
and others. You can contact me through e-mail at FKalama@509j.net or by phone at 541 325 3797.
