So , a pocketful ! LOL You need a place. most fairgrounds charge something for using their grounds , or buildings $ Drum , usually wants paid and sometimes rooms to stay in close $ Head staff , same thing $ Let's see , Head Gourd Dancer $ Head Man Dancer $ Head Lady Dancer $ Master of Ceremonies $ Arena Director $ Typically these all get paid and get a place to stay if it's more than 1 day. That's just a start. The more you try to do , the more it will cost ! Vendors could pay a fee to set up , and that could re-coup a little. Will you "feed" ? It's traditional at some powwows to feed the staff and singers and dancers $ O.K , so maybe a bucket full $$$ Different areas of the country have different requirements as far as facilities and lodging $ Contests are even more $ you need dance judges , singing judges , tabulators to record numbers and tally points $$$ The Committee's give away (giveaways are big in some areas) $$$
That's a start $ And , all the funds need to be "in hand" before the first song is started $ Good luck with it And like ECRB says , there are lots of powwow peeps on here that know more about it than us !

There are "Elders" and there are "Olders". Being the second one doesn't make the first one true !

Somebody is out there somewhere, thinking of you and the impact you made in their life.
It's not me....I think you're an idiot !





There's a chance you might not like me ,

but there's a bigger

chance I won't care
