Talking Awsome Powwow!

My Man and I went there for thee very first time and had a Blast! We traveled pretty far and the people down there were very hospitable! Everyone (Cept a couple number takers! lol) treated us really good! Very nice atmosphere and I dug on the mist around the arbor~

My only unpleasant experience was when they were giving out the meal tickets (VERY NICE OF THEM BY THE WAY) this lady told my man that he had already gotten his because she marked down his number already and we told her that we just got his number out of our locked car, but she kept talking over him n told him that she writes the numbers down as she sees them so we are just gonna have to step aside! lol flat rude! Then some other dancer saw what was happening and gave my man his tickets (May him and his family be blessed for being such good people!) then the lady told My Man that he might as well take those ones cause she cant give him another...again being rude but she ended up giving My Man his tickets and then come to find out someone that was in front of us told her his number backwards and got his tickets anyways!

It wouldnt have been too bad if she hadent been so rude about it! Other than that the rest of the powwow was awsome! Very refreshing to be around genuine people just trying to have a good time and enjoy each others company and get down to some good jamms! What more can anyone ask for!

Oh yeah, that was another drawback. Those people are very stingy with their feeding people! You woulda thought that with that HUGE Casino they could do like the other Casino powwows and feed the whole crowd, surely they can afford it, but they treated those meal tickets like gold and you only got this amount and only for the dancers. I mean $10 was ok, but considering that a plain ol' hamburger cost $5, it was ridiculous! Lighten up committee, people travel a long way, at least show some hospitality by offering water (which they were also selling, unless you just used a cup), snacks, a little dinner on Sat. would've been nice, don't be so stingy!!

The number takers are the same family that has been running the pow wow for the last few years. They can be downright rude!

They are stingy! Their tribal members are given over 300,000 a year and they can work and earn at least another 50,000. They get those new homes for free. The pow wow is just a publicity thing for them. That tribe is called hollywood Indian. They sure could afford free buffet and breakfast tickets! LOL
