Well, if I guess this thread should be about who has lived the perfect life and always made the best decisions instead of who is the ultimate grass dancer who has influenced the dance to where it is now. LOL
My dad is the ultimate, that's how it is when you really care about someone.....they make mistakes, but you know what is in the heart.
Being in the spotlight in the pow wow world is worse than living in a glass house because indian people don't hold back on judging one another. That is one of our downfalls because we are busy pulling one another down instead of lifting each other up. If someone has a gift for dancing, that is a gift they have received from the Creator...he didn't require they live the perfect life to have this gift. Thank goodness for that or we would all be in a sad shape when it comes to expressing our love for our culture through dancing.

It's not a new language. I remember growing up in Rosemead, California during the early seventies. This language evolves around toddlers that have a hard time speaking. Everybody should know: SANGWICH, DA TRUF, PASGETTI, BABY SUIT. Standards have been set but when others don't abide by the standards they become rebels. The Dakota/Lakota Sioux have experience with rebels and we called them the Assiniboine. Which isn't a bad thing, we just have to gather up the Ebonic-boines so that they can start their own tribe with their own language and customs.

I apologize for bringing up the Assiniboines as rebels but according to our stories, this is what it is based on:


5. Nicknames of the Assiniboine

a. Within their own tribe
i. ***íseeíneeípoiítuc - those who cook with stones
ii. Nakota - the allies or the people

b. Among other tribes
i. Hohe-rebels - called by the Sioux
ii. Stonies - called by the Canadians because Assiniboine cook with stones

Dang rights, the term nakoda means in our tougne "the one who kills" meaning reason why the the nakoda branced out from the Dakotas is because of deadly epademic small pox and chicken pox, yes they fled this horrific sickness that was killing our ppl in the dozens, and along there way to going to the west they encountered the Crees which were great alies with them but coming apon the rocky mountains which were orginally inhabit by the blackfoots and kootnays, the nakodas being the war like ppl that they were drove these ppl out which was no contest and they settle in there, and at last the whiteman when they first encountered us to sign treaty 7, they label us stonies" ppl that lived along the stones" meaning the rocky mountains.

Nakoda Man, You've got the knowledge in your blood and I respect that. In my eyes the Assiniboine are not rebels.

If you mean by Grand Daddy he....

He kept grass dance alive. He has danced it from day one. He has alway's been a grass dancer, he never switched to fancy like a lot of these names you have listed, Jonathan included. He belongs to grass dance societies. He holds a position in these grass dance socities. He knows the traditions involved in grass dance and last but not least he knows the songs associated with the grass dance.

Well you would be talking about Wade Baker, New Town, ND.

You talking about winnest grass dancer, that would Jonathan, hands down. I mean there was a stretch there in the 80's where he didn't lose for years.

Ree,

Thank you for your post. You know how grass dancing interest declined in the 1960's. Wade and the late Dean Fox both kept Grass Dancing alive. So props to you!

Jonathan took Grass Dancin' to another level. After fancy dancing in his youth, he travelled far and wide as a champion that was almost unbeatable. Agreed... he is the the winning ness grass dancer of the contest era!

I would agree that Dean was very knowledgeable, but he switched to fancy for a period of time, than came to his senses. :) He was a charter member of the Eagle Whistle drum group, which was one of first young men drum groups on the circut up this way, and an all around nice guy.

I don't know that grass dance interest died down in the 60's, it was just the next phase. Everyone wanted to dance fast and furious. Hell, back in those days, there were two catergories up this way, men's and women's. People switched to fancy because it was the next phase, kind of like you see people switching to Chicken Dance now.
