As a dancer of the White Eagle Gourd Society, I've seen the dollar raised at numerous Pow Wows and again as I danced at the Gathering. I was told it is lifted to the drums and that may have special meaning to some or it may actually be to the sky. I've seen it has go to Princesses, veterans, leaders, and other persons of special honor including the drummers.

We may all have preferences as to what we like to see and we have a right to express our opinions, but until we do understand what is the significance of a thing, wouldn't it be wise to hold judgment and learn about it first?
