an eigth native american can i dance?
 
Hello all,
I have a question I am an eigth native american my dad is chippewa. I was wondering am I allowed to dance at pow wows? I am really wanting to learn my dad used to dance when I was younger but my mom didnt support it so I wasnt allowed to go. Now that I am older and can make up my own mind I really want to learn? What are your opinions and be honest!

Why are you asking here? Why don't you ask your dad?

chippygoat 10-12-2011 11:56 AM

because my dad is no longer around

Joe's Dad 10-12-2011 12:06 PM

what about your relatives on his side? You want to dance Jingle. That's a healing dance. Nobody on the internet can give you permission to dance Jingle.

Take tobacco to your relatives or your father's tribe and ask permission.

You asked for opinions and said to be honest.

I will take the tobacco to my fathers tribe. I am not asking for permission. I am just wondering about the rules, such as I cannot legally enroll in a tribe because I am not 1/4.

in your heart do you want to DANCE??? then get up and dance... there are plenty that would step right beside you and yes dance WITH you!
Don't let others stop your feet or your heart,,, that has been pounded out of the blood for tooooooo many generations... listen to your heart and then dance,,, but yes get tobacco and aks for guidance as well! If anyone tries to stop you that would be rude!
You have my blessings!

I think you should contact your Chippewa family before you start dancing. Repair lost connections, get to know your family.
