Hey_hey:

Your advice is EXTREMELY VALUABLE! But only if it is accepted and practiced.

All powwow dances have an origin. Some dances and songs such as the duck and dive originated within a tribe and are apart of their rich histories.

It seems nowadays, if something is "Powwow Related," it can be simply adopting and used simply if "someone has a good heart and is respectful." Many times good hearted and respectful people re-interpret Powwow ways to fit their needs and wants.

I don't agree with this philosophy.

What are your thoughts? Anybody?
