CHEROS,

I had a chance to speak with some of the Headsmen of the Kiowa Gourd Clan.

They indicated that their organization did not give this dance to anyone except the Otoe-Missouria tribes.

To the best of my knowledge the Cherokee (of Oklahoma) were encouraged to powwow and gourd dance by the late Kenneth Anquoe. Kenneth was a member of the Kiowa Gourd Clan but to the best of my understanding .... he acted independently.
