Uncle Dean raised me more than anyone. His trophy collection was always growing and was totally cool to wish for as I was growing up in Mandaree, he had'em from all over the US & Canada. I traveled w/ him quite a bit when I could and remember thinking why they the only 2 out there, Uncle Dean & Wade, but don't recall them talking about the evolution of Grass. It wasn't until he passed on that others started telling me about him and how they 'kept it alive.'

So yeah they're lotsa powwow folk that recognize & acknowledge Uncle Dean & Wade as keeping it alive. I remember meeting my uncle Jonathan Windyboy for the first time and how we all hung out talking bout grassdancing & powwow life & it is agreed Uncle Dean showed him the ropes & on downt he line w/ Wesley, Sidrick, and lotsa Rocky Boy & Mandaree folk as well as others from powwow country.

Ok gotta run...
