Howard Rainer
(New Mexico, 1944 - )

Howard Ted Rainer was born on April 18, 1944 in New Mexico to John C. Rainer and Wynema Freeman Rainer. He grew up on the Indian reservation in Taos Pueblos, New Mexico. His family descended from Taos Indians. Because his mother was a teacher and his father was a school principal, Howard learned about the importance of education from a young age. His grandmother encouraged him to travel beyond the Indian reservation to educate himself and others. He married Rebecca Ann Diehl Vandyke in Utah County, Utah on February 28, 1975. Howard has authored many literary works about Native American traditions and pride. He worked for Brigham Young University's Native American Educational Outreach Programs until 2011, and the program ended at the time of his retirment. A motivational speaker, he regularly speaks at conferences for the empowerment of young Native Americans. Howard is also interested in nature photography and poetry.
