Born in Pawhuska, Oklahoma, Carter Revard is part Osage on his father’s side. He was brought into the Thunder gens by his grandmother and given the name Nom-peh-wah-the. He was raised west of Bartlesville. After training greyhounds, working in hayfields and wheat fields, and attending Bartlesville high school, he earned degrees from the University of Tulsa, from Oxford (on Rhodes scholarship), and his Ph.D. from Yale. He is married with four children and is professor emeritus of English at Washington University in St. Louis.

His scholarly work has been in medieval English literature (manuscripts, patrons, social contexts), linguistics, and American Indian literature. His poems, stories, and essays have appeared in many literary magazines and in anthologies, including Voices of the Rainbow, The Remembered Earth, American Indian Literature, Songs From This Earth On Turtle’s Back, Earth Power Coming, and Harper’s Anthology of 20th Century Native American Poetry.
