Recent history

I am doing some research on the modern grass dance.

One thing I am trying to confirm is - at most Northern plains doings in the late 1960's the powwows and wacipis were very small and did not have the variety of dancers and visitors that today's powwows enjoy.

During this period the grass dance faced a major decline.

I have heard it said by powwow people, that two dancers from Ft. Berthold kept the grass dance alive and are partly responsible for it's popularity today. They are Wade Baker and the late Dean Fox.

Is this true?
