I don't understand how "sweats" were made to be part of your post regarding Gourd Dance.

Is Gourd Dance social or ceremony?

What does that mean?

Our Gourd Dance is important.

Is that "Social" or "Ceremonial" to you?

What is it you mean by 'social' vs 'ceremonial'?

If we dont answer according to your definition, does that make our dance more open to everyone's interpretation of "public domain", and therefore free to interpret as they wish?

Is 'social' vs 'ceremonial' permission to steal and pervert a dance that is important to many living and breathing people?

If we answer wrong, does that grant permission to smooth talkers to jump upon our faulting words to grasp a right to our property?

Is that your legacy?


Our dance is part of our lives.

You are predicating your involvement into our dance upon whether it is defined as "social" or "ceremonial".

Which answer makes it a dance that should be respected and honoured?

Which answer makes it a dance you'd be proud to give as a legacy to your children?

Which answer would remove it from ever being a dance some clown would pin a paper square number to themselves?

Which answer would prevent someone like you asking such a question?

Which answer?

We'll answer that.
