It may or may not catch on. . .

I have seen a lot of "newbies" come into the dance arena with their own interpretation of what a "dance outfit" is. Sometimes they look okay, but more often than not, long time powwow people look at them and say, "What the *%^##??"

Case in point. I am good friends with a dancer from Florida. In Florida he pretty much gets away with "building" new additions to his grass dance rig.

I invited him to Indian Country and took him to a few powwows. All his new paraphanalia did not go over well. People looked at him like he was a "clown." As a result, he was humbled and went back to Florida, having been set straight by Indians who powwow weekend-after-weekend.



I don't know where you are from, but it may catch on there. IF,it actually catches on, we can say we heard about it first on Powwows.com.
