I met Shayla Rice Rowlands (she must have been in her 50's) back in the mid 70's when fancy shawl dancing was first making it's way south. She made my acquaintance when she seen me dance fancy shawl and she was excited by this new dance (there were others from OK who didn't know what to make of it & some didn't accept it). She shared some of her pictures with me when she danced fancy feather, the pics were awesome & she was awesome! Don't know if she's still alive, but I'm glad I got to meet this powwow legend. I also knew Alphie Horse Goombi, who started dancing fancy shawl in the 70's (she was originally a fancy feather dancer). I also knew Korreen (sp?) from Washington, think she married a SD guy) Up north in the 60's there was Joyce Crows Flies High, and I seen a pretty awesome teen fancy feather dancer in SK, Canada - Jo Jo Tootoosis. I have no problem with female feather dancers if they can keep up, just makes the boys/men dance harder. Also seen the reverse as well men/boys in fancy shawl.

I'm not sure how these little green things work, but I tried to pass out a few. Hopefully I did it right!

If you got hurt by that comment I think you must've been lookin' to get hurt. The context of her statement is it's "GROSS" to "check out" a fancy dancer she's fancying only to find out she was fancying a lady.....

Personally I'd feel pretty wronged internally if I was checkin' out some badass fancy shawl dancer and wonderin' what her name was only to find out it was a DUDE!!!

Well I hope you come back lady. You may have lost a boyfriend and a set of bustles but guess what, they can be replaced. Your free spirt and your dance can't :)

Sugapeaz,
Don't pay attention to this Kalifaz beech person for she is a newbie and doesn't know the difference between northern or southern plains. Her preoccupation is what she can snag for the night plus her desperation is so obvious that the girl fancy war dancers need to be cautious, aye!

Some girls go to powwows just to snag. They don't contribute to the dance during business hours. They wait around for the '9 after they've scoped out their prey.

Not bitter, just learned. And I don't dance anymore because I lost my boyfriend (who's stuff I used) to one of those groupies that hang around to snag. I lost more than my hunnie, I lost my bustles too.
But once again...the original poster was not talking about you...they were talking hypothetically.

And....this is just a bet....nothing serious meant by it...dancing with bustles you probably have been mistaken as a male once or twice until that person got a better look. Don't fool yourself.

Hope you can get happy again...sounds like you got burned before. Don't let it get you down.
