Northeast Gourd Dance Clan

The Golden State Gourd Society was given permission and their blessings from the Kiowa Gourd Clan back in 1971. The members that started this organization met with KGC President Taft Hainta in 1971, in Parker, Arizona, and discussed with him how they wanted this organization's rules and protocols to be based on those of the Kiowa Gourd Clan. Although some of the protocol was lost for a few years, due to changing of board members and lack of leadership, the revamped Golden State Gourd Society is slowly rebuilding and getting back to the protocols that this Society started with.
The Golden State Gourd Society was one of the first Gourd dance organizations to be formed on the West coast and certainly the first in California.
