Tibetan monks from Gaden Shartse Monastery in South India learn how to do a Kiowa gourd dance during a welcome ceremony Sunday afternoon at First American United Methodist Church. The monks will be in Norman throughout the week and will begin making a sand mandala Monday night at St. John's Episcopal Church in Norman.

I moved to Norman from Durant, Oklahoma, in May 2010 to work as a copy editor and page designer at The Norman Transcript. I previously worked at The Durant Democrat, where I wrote articles, took photos and designed pages.
