Thank you for the compliment that you think he should have placed higher.

hey now eagletail, i don't think that's right! Kanku Dai Warrior is being really respectful and she is right he's a child and he doesn't deserve any disrespect.

Rigging a powwow with open books thats hella easy!!! you can't fool a man that knows what a fool is...... picking judges that you know that would pick your friends, picking the same judges each time for a contest!!!!! Like the Chicken Special Friends Pick Friends!!! Noone on the east coast really knows what the chicken dance is..........or where it comes from!!! I really thought that those 2 dancers shoulda got in there not just some dude who just kicks his legs around and moves his shoulders........

Way too much drama for such a small powwow.

Man, I'm just holding my tongue so dang hard right now! Obviously you don't know me at all....In fact, I don't know you either (hopefully we can keep it that way!)...but anywayz, I didn't pick the same judges for the same contest. If I picked one on Saturday for a certain contest I didn't use them again on Sunday for the same contest. Just so you know a few of my friends and one very good one (like my sister) didn't even place, so I don't know what you're talking about. As I told someone else b4, if you weren't picked for judging it probably was because you were outta sight (outta mind).

As for you stating that no one on the east coast knows what the chicken dance is...you're being very general and unfair. Don't even dare to start east coast/west coast crap. If you already knew who was gonna place in that special maybe you shouldn't have entered. And there's no need to be hatin' on the winner. You sound too much like a sore loser to me. And how were you able to watch the other guys dance when you're dancing too?

Now if you feel that even with open books the powwow was rigged then WHY DID YOU EVEN CHECK YOUR POINTS!!?!?!??! What's the point for you then?

It cracks me up when ndns move to the EAST COAST from whatever rez they're from, come to the powwows & automatically EXPECT to win! Yeah, the powwows out here might be a lil different than other rez powwows, but dont discredit the dancers because of location.....there are A LOT of ndns as well as dancers who know their dance styles, what to look for & how to judge.

Losing sux bro, but suck it up & keep dancing......if you're only about the win it shows, but if you dance for the love of dancing, thats what makes you a winner!

I second that AMEN!!!

Like I said before - to put on a pow-wow anywhere takes so much work - to do this in Brooklyn is a feat - I think Taani has always been fair and hey, she is open to even discuss this with anyone online....HELLLOOOOOO people....how much fairer can she be, for goodness sake?????

Just goes to show that - and Taani knows this - you just can't satisfy everyone.

There was talk about the sites there - man - one year, there was this woman walking around with underwear on her head and making farting noises with her mouth - for realzzzz.... Now that was some funny stuff....

You girls (Tanni, Buckin, Bushy) are right on time. You are right lots of people come out here and assume we are going to be gratified by their presence and that noone out here can dance. I guess they are so shocked that they have to say something!!!
