I think... Our tribal gatherings have always been conducted by our own local people,but we have brought in people that don't live on our rez but that are knowledgeable in our ways that are the same,religiously,socially and culturally. Plus they have relatives that are from our rez,so that makes it a more comfortable feeling. Some of our own people don't even travel out to other pow-wows and see how they are ran and how the floorman get things situated,and I as a traveler,see the lack when it comes to our our own dance. But I as a outside MC,really have to listen to the hosting people and their elders and how they do their ceremonies or customs. It can be tough when you overlook things and then you catch your first @$$ chewin' from the host committee or the local drums. But it does help to know who you are working for.
