In my opinion, they needed to call it a white man trying to have a Native American gathering. sevral of the dancers were walking across the circle with food and drinks, just so they didn't have to go around the circle. they had people smoking joints at the circle, and drinking all kinds of alcohol. The drums had all of the dancers confused about the songs they were dancing to. they called grass, and gave them a fancy shawl, called fancy shawl, and gave them more of a duck & dive song. They put down a few dancers. One a Woman Grass Dancer. They said no problem, we welcome you into our circle with open arms, then chased her out and told her she was a disgrace to her family. They said no dancing bare foot in the circle, they had sevral people in there without shoes, and said they were okay. It was funny, the AD tried to line the women and the men by age, not category, your age. They had some young lady dancing in a prom dress that was just about see through, and a short shawl. I don't know how pow-wow's are out west and up north, but I was brought up, you don't cut across the circle, you don't eat in the circle. And you don't drink alcohol or smoke joints at pow-wow around the circle or any place on pow-wow grounds.
I was there and I will admit, during an intertribal I did smell something out of the ordinary in the circle. I totally put all the blame on the AD (not Clint, the other guy. I think his name is Rick Shawnee), who was also grabbing people to line them up for GE.

I wasn't confused by the songs. Some of them were pretty long, but other than that no problems.

The Shawl dancers got 2 songs, a regular song and a crow hop. Some of them didn't know what a crow hop was lol.

I don't know who the girl was with the prom dress (mom called it an After 5 dress) other than she's from Oklahoma and I think she came with some people from off the drum. They crowned her the Southeastern War Veteran Princess.

It was a weird experience but I really don't expect much from Chambers.
