This pow wow was alright, woulda been better if we didn't have to sit there ALL day, at least a few hours break on sat. would have been nice. Maybe they could have contested the adults first on sat and excused us so that we could relax a little before going back. Tabulations took a long time, which made the pow wow even longer. Maybe a few errors, who knows. Mostly seemed alright.

Geez, I felt sorry for the dancers, just during grand entry on Friday! Not only standing during all the normal stuff but then they start introducing the NABI staff and everyone... That's all good but, during grand entry? Me and the people next to us finally sat down during the NABI intros. There was only like about six of us still standing by then anywayz...

This is one of my pw peeves...... When all the dancers are still standing out there, they introduce staff and pricesses. You can't even see if you are on the floor. I think they should excuse the dancers then introduce all the flag carriers, headstaff and princesses and anyone else. Then everyone can see, and those people get proper respect.

i enjoyed my time at NABI, plenty of seating, space to move around.

i ran the 10K and the fun walk. didn seem to be alot of navajo dudes except a couple of us. yeah we mostly brought up the rear but it was all good. registration was on and off again but im sure they got it figured out.

i stayed at the Host Hotel across the way and lovvved it. haha 109 bucks sure buys alot there and the powered bath was a bonus after tthe run.

yeah and theres a nice BBQ place jus down the road and Cabelas even closer so we spent alittle too much.

2010 NABI is moving a week ahead of GON haha kinda cool but directly competing against ASU and Blackeagle. lets see who budges!!

The bugs are gonna get workked out. theres alot of smart people involved so i aint even sweatin it.

i had a great time here. great host drums. there was a few mistake here and there but this a new powwow. i bet next year it will go alot better. head staff did there best. the mc did there best for what they had. the powwow did let some drums set up but they did pay the drums now remember they were not going to pay them but they did and i thought that was great. good job and i will see you next year.just remember we are visitors to the powwow they did treat the visitor real good.. but thats just my opinion...

I went on Saturday to do the 1st Grand Enrty with the Rez Riders. It was cool. They're all Indians, but most of them have never been to a powwow...so they were really impressed.

Then I had fun all day teasing people, talking to the security head, and cornering Mike Bidwell about the outside chairs, and getting the gourd dance going 45 minutes late.

I fell asleep "watching" our stuff while the rest of the fam went for fast food...and when I woke up it was 6:40. No gourd dance had started. I walked up front, asked around, including Robin F. ("Hey you better know what's going on...YOU'RE IN CHARGE!!!) and said to Larry C. and them, "You guys should just get started because if you wait for these people they'll just skip you." I figured out how to turn the mic on and got someone to speak until the MC came back, and the rest is history.

I went back to use the restroom and I head the gourd dance start up.

I had fun bossing and threatening (I guess that's how they saw it...me all tattooed up wearing Ray-bans at night, etc.) people throughout the day, as well as educating the non-Indian security about how we do things. It was quite neat-o.

Yeah GE's were hard on us dancers, especially us women holding cradle boards. I ended up walking out after the Grand Entry songs, as my arms were ready to fall off.

Me and my family were shocked by the prices of food, even in the Dancer's Lounge prices were the same. I felt sorry for those families that were on a budget and travelling from far away to be there. On Saturday I snuck in some drinks in my baby's stroller. $4.50 for a small bottle of water or coke? Damn!!

Check out page 2 of the thread.

Just got home.

Goot pow wow. I had a great time. Got to see some West Coast people I haven't seen in years. Good singing. Carpet was nice, lots of room to dance.

DANG that place is big. It is a hike to go anywhere!

Sound system could use some improvement. There were some places where you couldn't hear anything. Felt like I was in a Charlie Brown cartoon sometimes.

Food selection could use some variety. All the outside booths seemed to have the same menu and inside all you could get were hot dogs or nachos.

Cool to have the roof open on Saturday night.

I think if they work out the bugs this could grow.

Not much you can do on the price of things, that is how things are with big time arena's.

This was a pretty good pow wow for its first year. I am sure improvements and adjustments will be made. However, not too keen on having the pow wow the same weekend as the ASU Pow Wow. I don know about this..I do hope they reconsider the dates and keep it in May. Who knows....but for sure I will DEFINITELY be back next year!! See ya'lls at NABI 2010!!!!

Did anyone else notice the contest money didn't actually equal Over $100,000 in Prize Money as advertised on the flyer?

Someone asked what the payout money was so I posted it yesterday after looking at the NABI website and I started thinking back and I thought the payouts were EVEN numbers at one time, like 1,000, 800, 600, 400 and 200 which when added up does equal more than 100,000 but they way they're posted now-which is 1100, 700, 500, 300, and 200-it only equals $95,550.

I don't know, seems minor at this point, but that combined with the issue of the rental of the facility and how they had the workers pulling up the red carpet floor about 8pm because the committee was being charged PER MINUTE for everything over the rental contract, and the way we all got asked to leave the building about 9:30, sort of leads me to think the event probably cost MUCH more than originally planned and maybe they will reconsider before attempting an event of this size again. At the very least maybe they'll move it to a better venue.

It wasn't miniscule to some of the dancers who got 2nd place and thought they were getting $800.00. I brought it up simply because I believe in truth in advertising. I work alot of pow wows who DO have more than $100,000.00 in prize money, they advertise it AND they pay it. My point is, don't advertise it, if you're NOT going to pay it.

Furthermore, I wasn't complaining, I was asking a legitimate question. It's beyond me how people can read so much into my posts. Just because I didn't go on and on about the darn nice hotel rooms (THEY WERE BEAUTIFUL!!!) doesn't mean I was complaining either.

I had fun at this pow wow and it was an awesome building!!! they should have put all the vendors next to the pow wow in all that empty space from the 50 yard line and down to the red zone. lol that would have been good cuz the stairs were kinda a job to tackle.
I think they should have it the same time as gathering and not compete with the smaller, more traditionally intact pow wows like ASU and black eagle....i think they should take gathering on. with age group splits and good dance money, they will do even better next year.
They need a drum contest....but the staff was good and the mc's were funny.
the tabulating thing got kinda boring but thats a glich that can be worked out. we shoulda competed friday night instead of two rounds on saturday. . .and yeah, grand entry was long but its their pow wow, so you go with the flow.
