Yep...sad to say...but powwow critic is right.
Same people win everywhere. And...a few "professional" powwow families take home quite a bundle each weekend. I witnessed one family take home over $3600 recently, after all family members placed high in their contests. Most I ever saw was a couple of years ago one family took home $8000 after winning their catagories and specials. It all has to do with their last name because they certainly weren't the best dancers out there. A few families out there are sweeping the powwows across the country just because of their last name.
