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...

Anybody else have another version of others who were involved in bringing back or preserving the grass dance in the 1960's 70's?
