old skool Vs. New skool?

Now i've seen a HUGE influx of "ol' style" dancers and we ALL have our own idea of old style and such...now reading through the posts ALOT of old style dancers seem REALLY judgmental and almost HOSTILE towards contemp stylers. i'm sure in the past folks who were old style got looked over as well, but seeing as i'm from plateau people we have a great reverence for the past, and the old style dance as well as old THINGs, our outfits are handed down through the generations and traditions passed on, but we can still live in the now and appreciate a good dancer for what they are....whether contemp or old style. So how come some people are SO militant and almost HOSTILE towards contemp these days? in my own observations these things go in cycles. someday old style will be OUT and contemp will be IN again...so why cant we ALL just get along?

ignorance is a loaded word, maybe a bit too harsh without knowing who you are talking about. We all don't know everything. Most adult northern fancy dancers don't know about the 1970s when we wore breastplates without shirts and armbands instead of armbustles. I've seen "old style" grass dance contests where everyone is dancing like the 1980s. In the 80s "old style" grass would have been the 50s. i blame alot of this on MC's, a lot of what they say at powwows isn't always 100% correct, yet the young people hear it and the take it as the reality of the situation. Everyplace has their own cultural perspective on the powwow and the various parts in the powwow, and everyone has their own "history" of it.

hhmmm I stand by my original statement... if theres something I dont know about, I become intrigued and interested, I wanna ask about it. I dont just sit there and go EEEWWWWWW SICK!! thats just STUPID! and WRONG! EEWWW...lol.

yes, I know all too well about the MC thing. Just like my fren otis halfmoon and dale oldhorn...they have to agree to disagree on the origin of the "duck & dive."

alot of MC's have this "Matter o' fact" way of speakin that can be a lil ummm for lack of a better word "annoying?" or unsettling? I dont know.

yea.. it is funny... I was watching a vid from 89 or 90 from cannonball and told my brother in law that that is going to be considered old style and is considered old style for grass nowadays.. lol..
me.. I've been mixing it up with old and new but like to dance old style since my grandfather danced that way and he was brought in in the 50s... about all i got to say about contem in grass is that if guys want to dance fancy, they should dance fancy and not grass... can of worms is open..

they cant get along ..... cuz it all kinda boils down to money ...... old skoolerz hate it when contempz win .... and contempz hate it when old skoolerz win. its all territorial and chyt ... "hey i've been winning for the last couple of years and i need to keep winning for the next couple years to pay off this nice new ride i got." LOL jkz

but ya it does boil down to ignorance ... alot of people dont want to know and will just go on thinking .... ya neon, waving my fan(s) all over and running around is where its at LOL (another can of worms sorry LOL). dont care to know about the basis' of all these dances we dance now ... how they started out. and will go on thinking .... that some of the dancer's are dancing their sidestep ... "offbeat" ... and wonder why they place LOL. heck the people who wore cotton dresses for the first time probably got alot of slack from the buckskin enthusiatists LOL.

I know right

like that vid in the jingle thread. they were talkin about how old and sacred the dress was, but in the SAME breath he mentions contests and winning. like THATS the only reason people are dancing...which to some degree is true. God FORBID folks go out and get an education and a J-O-B!

now how come we tend to worship drunkaholics and woman beaters JUST cuz they can dance?....LOL oops ANOTHER can o' worms! DANG just WORMS all around

one has to remenber that there was once over 600 nation, thats is over 600 ways of thinking and traditions that the people believe in and try to hold too. so as the different dance styles have come about people are still trying to hold on the ways they were taught try putting your self in thiers moccasins

Looking at some of the Men's Tradish from time to time is pretty scary.....Jumping around, 1000 feathers, on and on.....Me....I'm not gonna pay to much attention to what is considered Old or New....But when I see certain things i'm sorry it basically makes me laugh or I just don't pay too much attention to it....More so laugh.....I'll say this though...Kudos to those who get out there and Hoka...

I dance what you consider "Old Style", but being judgemental towards other dancers is jeolousy, I enjoy watching different styles of dancing, and for someone to dance the way they feel, wheather if it's contemp or old style just show how they are expressing themselves through the flow of the drum, at various powwows I noticed that old style and contemp both place about the same, so I don't think that it's the style, it's the person dancing it, and if they place, it's because they was feeling the beat that weekend and they danced to what they thought made them and the people who watch feel good, I thought that was powwow supposed to be about.

The last two post make so much since, as i have been away from the circle for years and as I have returned it just like when I was raised and traveled with my parents and grandparents. Be respectful of everyone and their decisions. Some of my family won't agree with me, but like those two said, its what the dancer feels and how they display themselves in and around the circle....

I guess what I've been taught in general is "old" = fairly simple, not meaning plain but just all the basic elements of the outfit and "new" = more showy parts that have been added in the more recent years. But how recent is "recent"? To one person it might mean the last 3-5 years while to another it means the last 30-50 years. I guess when the contests actually have separate registration/category for "old style" and "contemporary" that's when some definitions are in order.

I dont know what others are thinking I just know that I dont mind contemp as long as it isnt over tha top.... skimpy and super tight jingle dresses and full on fancy shawl spinning is rediculous atleast maintain some dignity and not push it too far.... jingle is about being graceful and light on your feet ...not crazy legged moves that take ya around tha floor 10 times...lol... No matter what each style is always going to have its haters...thats just the way everything goes....
