Zack Kennah went to art school at the University of Wyoming then moved to California to be an independent filmmaker. Over the past two years, Kennah has written and illustrated a comic inspired by his father's stories growing up on the Wind River Indian Reservation called Crowheart Butte.

It's a story set on the Wind River Indian Reservation about the Fort Washakie School basketball team trying to survive creatures in the shadow of the famous butte. You can check out Kennah's work here.
