R.H. Swaney

R. H. Swaney was born to a Native American father who abandoned him at birth and a Caucasian mother who struggled with mental illness. Raised graciously by his grandparents in rural South Dakota, his heart for humanity began to blossom as he navigated racial differences, small-town living, and a complicated family history. Writing since he was twelve, he eventually began performing spoken word music and composing poetry. Now, you can find him at his desk or favorite coffee shop in Sioux Falls SD writing and contemplating how his art can affect humanity in a positive, life-giving way.
