Your point may be valid, but your logic is flawed.

So...

Only afro-americans can rap or hip-hop.
Only Chinese can cook egg rolls.
Only Jews can eat Bagels.
All you White and other "rock stars" turn in your guitars, thats afro american too.
Only whites can be pilots.
Unless your oreintal, give up the Tai-chi and Hapkido.

The powwow is a modern evolution of things. Started much after the start of the resevation period. Whites have been interactive in communities across the country for many years Except in volume, how has anything changed.
Whites have been participating in pwws for many, many years.
Why be upset now.
People, as they always have, can discern a fruit when they see one.
Folks find there place in the world where they belong.
Along the way they have to discover where the wrong places are before they can realize where they should be.

Hmmmm.... I have seen a lot of crazy white people at powwows and I can see how they would get irritating.

I do this little move where I end on one knee with my other leg extended, and some white woman said that I did it wrong and I need to stop with both feet on the ground. I just laughed a bit. I've been NDN my whole life, and some woman reads that Black Elk Book and A few Boyscout websites and all of the sudden she's an expert ?? for the most part tho I don't mind the "white brother" dancing, I just think it loos kind of funny. Sometimes, it looks like there on a different page.

What I can't stand is when an older white person is claiming Elder status, and starts pontificating with incorrect info, trying to sound like Floyd in dances with wolves.

I think that ojibwecommodbod was way harsh, but I see where he is coming from...kind of.

You all should know not to neg this topic on. We had a discussion on this and the topic about the white boy who dances grass. I mean people are people and they have their own oppinions but this topic shouldnt be listed. Let people be if they want to participate in powwow and dance then let them.

So whats next white people sundancing *o0o0ops* that already happens.

As far as heritage, I think people should come clean, if your only link to NDN ancestry was your great great Grandmother who was a Cherokee princess from Pennsylvania then say that.

You could state: I am white but I do have some NDN ancestry. There's nothing wrong with the truth. I would have respect for someone who stated that, then those who say yeah I am NDN, sporting their blond hair/blue eyes and acting as if they were elected Tribal Chairman. LMAO!

Myself I think its okay if White people dance in regular clothes during intertribals ** provided they do it respecfully** but I think they should not be in full regalia.

If your not NDN, then You will NEVER be NDN. And being NDN in you heart isn't gonna cut it either - its just wannabe hogwash.

Just so's you know.. the topic is white people powwow dancing... now it does'nt say mixed bloods, north carolina indians or mixed bloods that got the light side of the coloring... so unless you fit in the white people catagory then do'nt go jumping the gun and getting all offended just yet.. wait till someone says "you white looking indians".. ROFLMAO!

Actually whites abandoning European culture and adopting Native culture has been occuring since first contact. If you read about Cortez's conquest over the Aztec from one of his officers, deGama I believe, you will read how Spanish castaways who landed on the Mexican coast not only adopted Native culture, but also warned Native allying themselves to the Spanish what would happen to them eventually AND refused to return to Spansih forces. In fact they ran away.

There are accounts during the French and Indian War of English captives becoming so assimulated into Native culture that some refused to return to their families, and when some were forced to return to their English families, ran away to rejoin their Native families. Good book on the topic uses the letters of one "captive's" family on why she wouldn't return.

Even in the late 19th and early 20th centuries you had captives assimulating into Native culture and refusing to return to their family. Andele the Mexican-Kiowa Captive is one book that comes to mind. Important note about the Andele book. Although the book was written when he was trying to become Christian and is written by a missionary with a bias, if you read the introduction, you learn that Andele eventually joins NAC.

This has been the subject of other threads, although maybe not started so bluntly. I wouldn't delete it. I'm one of those white people whose g-g grandmother was an Indian from Pennsylvania (not Cherokee, though), I'm blonde (when I color it...) and blue-eyed, and frankly, I'm not ready to see me in regalia because I think white people DO look funny in regalia, but if someone is fair-skinned, but respectful and educated, maybe it should be okay. Fools should just be escorted out, no matter what color they are. Maybe someday, when I'm more educated, I might dance - but not yet. I just can't see my pasty face on top of beaded buckskin.

You might do well to remember, though, that someone who looks white could very well be half or 25% Indian...it doesn't seem wise to me to make vast generalizations based on the way somebody looks.
Hey that's what I'm saying. My niece is 100% native. 1/4 cheyenne, 1/4 hawaiian and 1/2 seneca. And her seneca blood, well, she looks whiter than some of the white girls. So yeah, I can understand that. But I don't look all indian either. I'm 1/2 cheyenne and 1/2 hawaiian, but you can really see my hawaiian blood in me. Though I was raised around skins most of my life, been to all kinds of powwows, some times I get that stink vibe when I'm on the trail and peeps are lookin at me wierd....OR maybe that's because I don't dance.....LOL Just sing....or maybe the steel toe boots, or MAYBE its the wild hawaiian hair.....LMAO... Oh heck, who really cares?

Cheyennes were taught to share share share, thier culture, their religion, their way of life with all people who wanted to learn. No where did anyone ever tell me, you can share your culture with everyone except for anyone who looks toooooo white, black, or yellow. So, I dunno. That's my opinion. Probably doesn't help this thread any. LOL

If you look at my first post here, you will see that I was requesting info about how I MAY have offended someone at a powwow.
If you tell me how to bowl, I might tell you to mind your own business, but I won't tell you to get out of the alley.

Now, was there a point in your post somewhere?
I guess there wasn't.

ojibwecommodbod, I understand your point, I honestly do, and maybe why you posted it, but if you honestly look at your post, does it not borderline just a bit on the side of racism? How many people in the world do you really need to hate on? As a young man sometimes it's good to really take a close look at your own heart. If I took every word in your posts as truth, I'd have to think you have something against the Cherokee, since you mentioned the tribe more than once. Have you actually surveyed those people you mentioned at powwow's, or is it like someone else suggested, you're strictly going on skin color? Lots of questions only your heart can answer. If it bothers you so much, maybe you should confine yourself to ceremonial gatherings mostly. I've seen all manners of people make a fool of themselves, and it didn't really matter what color they were.

ya know i get feeling sorry for the whites at powwows here in austin the school sponcers the powow one of the many one from the city it only one day but i would not miss it for anyone
when we have the round dance to put moneyon the blankets for the drums everone come outand it a mess, i love dancing with the ppland cant wait for my dress so i can dance more .but the mc always trys to keep ppl in check with his comments that i have come to love ,one woman might be dancing kind od tribal not native but somekind of clubing dance and hes tell all of us that we got some moviestar name here i think she might get the point.
and we have a dance where the non native ppl can try thier best to dance like the diffrent dancers in regala for things like dinner or money its alway a funnyand some time the same ppl come back each year to try to win,the mc has names for the like mr rogers,and girl with spurs,thing like that if big time poking fun at them but everone has a good time ,
at the last powwow i meet some more ppl one from powwows.com we had a gifting and sheard some wisdom and it was over for one more year,
so young man with heart angey ,lol you were borned with the best gift any one could have its your and in time you will see how wonderfull you are.
