Not ALL powwows are the same.

Throughout the different regions of North America there are numerous "powwow circuits." Within these powwow circuits, you will see many of the same people and families throughout the year, following the same powwows. Some of these powwow circuits have long been established and are stronger than others.

Of particular note is the Saskatchewan/Alberta powwow circuit. This is a strong powwow circuit where dancing during the intertribals factors into the outcome of the winners. (I think this is where the concept of "spot checks" originated).

NG92782, you might travel to a major powwow in either Saskatchewan or Alberta this summer to witness the majority of dancers - dancing each intertribal.

OR better yet. . .

Encourage some dancers in your area who don't dance during intertribals and win, to bring these habits to Canada and see how well they do! :6:
