witnessed this in Ignacio, CO.

I attended a birthday pow wow in Ignacio, CO in April and attended the gourd dancing before the pow wow. I was in awe of the gourd dancers, as this was my first time observing a gourd dance. When it came time to honor the honoree I noticed that the gourd dancers did the samee thing, hold a dollar bill up and then lay it at the feet of the honoree. Since I was a spectator, I wasnt sure of the proper protical so I remained sitting. I enjoyed the gourd dancing and felt out of place at times when it came to the honorings and all. I can honestly say that I enjoyed the gourd dancing and plan to attend more when I am down south again.
