Artist Spotlight: Enoch Kelly Haney
Enoch Kelly Haney is a man I would term a true American Hero. Not only an artist, but also a tribal leader, and also a Stateman for Oklahoma, his list of achievements is impressive.
Kelly was born on November 12, 1940 in Seminole, Oklahoma. His father, Woodrow Haney, was a flute maker and craftsman and his paternal grandfather, Willie Haney, contributed to the Smithsonian Institution’s oral history project. After obtaining his degree from Oklahoma City University, Kelly attended the University of Arizona, served in the Oklahoma National Guard and in 1972, was named as one of the Outstanding Young Men of America. He stepped into his adulthood with a strong passion for leadership, honor, and caring for everyone around him.
