I started out traditional dancing when I was 9 and my first powwow was Chamber's Farm Powwow, which used to be the most popular one to go to.

If you were 9, it wasn't Chambers back then. Dancing when I was about 4. And that's too long ago to count.

Late start

I didn't start dancing until my 20s. Grandparents did not carry on the traditions. When I found out that I was part Indian and I wanted to learn more. Because we did not have a large or publicly known NDN population, it took me a long time to start learning how to dance. Still learning today.

Hello:

My first POW WOW was when I went to College in Minneapolis MN. I was awaken by the Drums which was right across the road being played. This was about 10 to 12 years ago.

I did not start danceing until just last year.

About 3 years ago I started my search for my Native American Ancestors. I have found out that my 2nd great Grandfather is a Member of the Northern Cherokee Nation Of The Old Lausinaa (sorry spelling is not good at all) Nation.

I dance in honor of my ancstors. I just wish I new of the old ways but it is always an honor to be in the circle which my ancestors which danced at.

Wado and many blessing to all!

I haven't started dancing yet and im 16, but I'm in the process of making my regalia, and should be out there soon. I can't remeber how old I was at my first pow wow, so I guess I've been goin' a while. Wish me luck on dancing and if you have any advice please help. I have plenty of questions that I'm going to post for the wise to answer. thanks :Angel2

My kids were about 10 I think -- wanted to be sure that this was something they really wanted to do and understood. Both are still dancing today (still blowing me away)!!!! They are awesome.

I was dressed 5 years ago. Still dance today but spend most of my time making regalia for the family and friends and even some paying customers!! LOL!
