Finally I just bought some fake hair and braided it in whenever I danced at a pow wow. Which was cool because I could decide how long I wanted my braids to be. :)

Heck all you guys are gonna think I am all fake. Fake Plumes, fake hair....am i even a real indian?? *L* [/B][/QUOTE]

I ran late once, one side of my hair was braided, the other was braided a quarter of the way and all that day I danced like crap. Now I think its like a bad luck thing to go in the circle in laziness or lateness. lol. Yeah my mind isn't too sound. I'm just a crazy indian girl. lol

LOL...I don't know about referring to those who throw it up into a bun as "skanky"....LOL....but who cares, if you aren't sporting the "do", to each his own. Braids, ponys or sporting the hair down is always nice....IMO....:).

Long hair should always be worn down on our NdN women even in contest pow-wows. Pila

One time at Mohegun, I only had enough time to braid one side of my head and the other was a bun. I looked like a tard.

I think that if occassionally this happens and the person hooks it up right after GE, then it`s ok. But I too have witnessed `divas`who assume that they don`t even have to braid their hair because they are them.

maybe if a person is by them self and can't braid there hair by them self so they just throw it up in a bun or however. i 've been with people and they can't french braid so i just put up and out of my way so i can contest and that doesn't mean i'm lazy.

It is not about trying to look authentically ndn. It is about respect for yourself and the way that you carry yourself. For me being Blackfoot, I am supposed to wear my hair in two braids...two skinny blackfoot braids...lol . N E way who wants to look ruff out on the arbour n e way? :p

most of the time i braid my daughter hair before grand entry, but when my daughter is running late, i will tie her hair in two braids or one depending on how much time i have. but there are times when she has put it up into a bun and gone through grand enty that way.

I know how good of a person Caramel is. Her humour and zaniness is what we all need especially with the Outkast fiasco that should've superceded the Janet flash dance.

I would say that Caramel is as traditional as all of us. But realize that until the day we die, we gain knowledge. And the postings that are written and read by everybody there's knowledge being transferred. So if Caramel read what everybody wrote then her knowledge was expanded to include the topic of this thread, right? I'm hoping my friend Caramel will agree.
