“Growing up, I’ve always had people to help me along the way … it’s really important for me to give it back to them.”Lindy Waters III
Waters was recently honored by the 2018 American Indian Exposition with the 2018 Indian of the Year award. Of Kiowa and Cherokee heritage, Waters was grand marshal in several parades and the guest of honor at the event. In his two seasons with the Cowboys, Waters has helped honor the native culture within his home state and has been a guest speaker at youth basketball camps and native youth groups throughout the state. He was also the face of the team’s month-long N7 celebration last November (Native American Heritage Month).
