Ohhhhh yes!

I already have some great interviews and plan on videoing a good one in February.

I have the story from the Umon'hon' (Omaha), how it was transferred to the Santee Dakota, then to the Hidatsa.



If I don't video this information ... I don't know who else will?


So far, I have not heard that women were a part of the grass dance ceremony or "that anybody actually stomped (laid) down the grass" as told in powwows.
