I have found out it is pretty sad that the pow wows with the most dancers are the compition ones....(The white mans money has made our people only want to dance for money and very seldom for the spirit):(
I agree, I do not dance for money, it would not be right. Even if I need the money I would not dance for it. When I do dance, I wear one braid, either on one side or the other, I can never get two braids to look right, and I can't fancy braid down my back, so I do a side braid.

I would not like to be judged by what other people think I should look like rather than be in a dance contest, and be judged for everything except dancing. The best dancer should be the one to win, not the favorite.
Harm no one.
