i've been traveling all summer with my kids, and i noticed that there are quite a few dancers (mainly mens fancy) who dance all crazy like theres a whole nother beat in their head. yet they do win. I like the "old style" when they danced to the beat of the drum (which does represent mother earth) We do need to teach our young people to honor the arena, by disqualifying yourself when a part of your outfit falls off or you dance off beat, what ever it may be. also drum groups need to respect their drum by keeping their area clean. all in all, some dancers have got to be making it on name recognition, or we need to once again address that some pow-wows are just not fair,thats why i tell my kids not to depend on pow-wows to live and pay bills, its not fair out there
