It was a pretty good show, the Native American dancers did a good job, it was something to see, but not like a real pow wow. Some of those pow wows get like 50-60 fancy dancers on the floor at one time, or even jingle dancers, or fancy shawl dancers. It's really a spectacular show when you get that many. Then you always have those champions, or winners, especially the dance offs. I think that one year a Canadian dancer won at the Red Earth, best overall dancer, best of pow wow. She was real tall, graceful, like a ballet dancer, sort of glided, or floated around the arena, probably the best fancy shawl dancer that I ever seen. Really brought the crowd to their feet.

I hope people noticed that at the opening ceremony, they didn't stand for the whole time, and there were Flags all over the place. Also, there was no invocation, that I noticed, maybe the moment of silence for the fallen Olympian, but if there had been one, or was one, it probably only lasted for a coupla minutes, maybe 5 minutes at the most, not an hour long sermon, that everyone had to stand for. It was very audience friendly, and courteous to the audience, I'm sure they all had a good time, and enjoyed the show, or the ceremony.
That is so cool. This was the best opening ceremony for the Olympic ever!
