Belknap does this, and this list could go on for a long time, but a few that don't alow this unpopular type of judgeing to happen is United tribes, White Sheild, Oglala Lakota Nation, Black Hills powwow in Rapid City SD, Rosebud powwow(aug), Rosebud Casino Powwow, Lower Brule powwow, Ft. Washakie powwow, just a few examples of these powwows that pick their judges from the audience, but also pick the ones that are tribal members of that respected powwow where it's being held, at alot of these powwows you could see alot of people that go to these events to watch the dancers and say if i could judge i would pick that one dancer who is very good, but because he or she doesn't know anyone of the head judges they are not going to win, but you allways see these dancers travel to these powwows because they love to dance and winning isn't everything, that love of dancing comes through loud and clear, DANCERS AS JUDGES DOESN'T WORK, WHEN ARE THESE POWWOW COORDINATORS GOING TO GET THE MESSAGE!!!!!.
ROCK ON!!!!.... FORT WASHAKIE,WYOMING, USA!!!!

We'll do our best to keep thingz real 4 yuz!! Our money is up.......over $100,000 now!!! But we'll keep our judges in place.....the old timer Shoshone guys and gals will be the head judges ; )

Yeah. My daughter is a junior dancer and last year at GON a security guard thought her wristband to get in the place was too loose and ripped it off her wrist and confiscated it! I was outraged. She started crying too cuz it scared her. I went back to retrieve it but the guard called security on me. GON is ridiculous.
