Powwows are a joke to all involved. A time for NdNs to be NdN for the day or weekend. A time for beautiful NdN women to fall into the trap of falling for a dancer or drummer just because she has low self-esteem. A powwow is a time for the NdN brothers to abuse their status as a dancer or drummer to get their weekend snags on with our NdN women who deserve so much more. A powwow is a time for the NdN people to fall victim to Western train of thought and "get rich" quick in a weekend and if you don't win then to backstab against your "friends" if they beat you out. I don't attend powwows for all these reasons.
Well, there ARE SOME truths to what was said here .... althought the paintbrush used could recolor the side of a barn in a single stroke, if you catch my drift. The exceptions are, of course, those who dance and/or sing for the right reasons. We need to be seeing that more and more, IMHO.

EducatedNdN may have come across sounding a little caustic TO SOME, but there IS A POINT here.
