its ok to be brought into powwow by people outside of their family.....i was brought into southern straight by john emhoolah who is of a different tribe

but make sure you go through the proper channels....have the initiation ceremony preferably at a smaller powwow of your own community

and for the first time WPD is partially right....im still not a fan of his though

but IF time and money permit, look for a powwow in ojibwe territory....watch and LEARN and look for a cultural center to visit....what does that have to do with jingle dress dancing? absolutely NOTHING....but at least familiarize yourself with your people and your traditions before you decide to step in the arena with a jingle dress
Well said........
