I think if you are hosting a powwow in a region that has strong beliefs about how a powwow should be conducted. Then it would be better for committees to pick key headstaff from their own region or community. Especially the A.D. position.

Now concerning the head judge, it might be better to not get a local. Maybe a non-local head judge will pick judges more fairly.

What do you all think?

Kiyaanii,

The best case scenario (aye*) would be to hire an arena director who is familiar with many regional protocols, knows both contemporary and traditional powwow ways and MOST IMPORTANTLY is able to fulfill the wishes of the committee - by following directions.

For a head judge . . . *L it's a no-win-situation. There are consequences to both a local head judge and nonlocal head judge. It also depends on the individual on how fair he/she is in his/her decision making process. On this one, just remember people will talk no' matta' what the outcome!

I know you didn't ask about emcees', but at least hire one that doesn't "butcher" the local last name's of all the winners!
