Ok, I'm new to this whole chat stuff. Can you post what we can talk or discuss in each area. I thought if it was just general discussion then we could talk about this in this area. Are there some particular rules I didn't see. I understand you are a moderator and everything but it would be helpful for a simple person such as myself to know what is ok and what is taboo so to speak. I didn't think that there was anything wrong with the discussion. Please advise this poor confused chap, me.

Nothing wrong with the discussion. It was just in the wrong forum. At first it was just a chat.. an opinion... so it could be left in chit chat... no prob. Then when it went on into a discussion of the native/white issue of attending powwows that made it a native issue so it was moved.
As far as the deleted posts.... talk to the one that deleted them and that ain't me. ;)

It's not that hard to follow what goes on around here.

Chit chat is for off topic postings..... can be of alot of different subjects that do not fit one of the other forums topics.

Powwow Talk.... is just that.

Native Issues and news is for specific issues that is of particular interest or affecting any of the first nations peoples.

The other forums follow the heading they are listed under... such as singing discussions would be in either the northern or southern singing. Not that hard to figure out.

As for what can not be talked about on this site...... you had that spelled out on your agreement when you joined the site. It is also listed in http://www.powwows.com/support/index...ondetails&_i=6 this spells out everything pretty clearly. Hope this helps answer your questions. :D

I look at it this way, if the author wants to delete the post super! If something advocates violence or accuses someone of doing something without verifiable source or documentation let the moderators scratch it. Anything else...I mean let folks post their bulls**t. If they want to look like a racist or intolerant a**hole that's up to them. And there are plenty out here that don't seem to mind being seen that way. Yes, I read the agreement...

Wink Funny white people story

This past weekend, I was fortunate enough to have attended the Euharlee powwow. Toward the end of the day on Sunday, I moved my chair out of the sun (away from my people and close to some white folks). Sun kills my peepers!

Well, everytime a wonderful whiff of sage sailed through the air in our direction, I'd hear them say, "there's that smell again!" After about the third time, the son said, "well, somebody sure is getting high". I bout fell outta my chair. "It's SAGE!" I tell them. Not POT!

Just put on your sense of humor and enjoy them. One of the best laughs I had all day!

Interesting, yet kind of Moot.

This can be a rather interesting and even fun thread. But if one really thinks about it, it can also be a very moot thread.

Why?

Well, its just plain common sense. As many have mentioned before many times here that most Native Events are PUBLIC. And a great deal of Dances are INTERTRIBAL.

And let's not forget that most events are also MARKETED, ADVERTISED and PUBLICIZED.

Therefore we can't really get mad about who does and does not attend for events that are open to all.

Now as far as what happens at the event - that is a different topic.

Now this is true! I had just moved into the area and I saw signs up for a NAtive American Festival so I went. THought is was a good opportunity to meet ppl with common interests. You know kinda like a computer show or something like that. While at the festival there were all sorts of printed materials on upcoming events in the area and I thought, how cool! More opportunities to learn and meet! It never once crossed my mind that I would be unwelcomed! I had no idea that there were so many issues...see, again I learn! Maybe when ppl hear ignorant remarks being made in the crowd, the MC could be informed so that he/she can speak to it...use that as a teaching experience. Ppl cant help being ignorant when there isnt anyone willing to show them the truth! These guys MC'ing at the powwow I attended sure didnt hold anything back as far as I could tell!

I think that public powwows are a great chance to really get the message out about these misnomers and serious issues!

Eeek, comparing a Human event (Powwow) to a computer "show" doesnt sound very good....but I hope you understand what I mean. An event where one buy products, veiw demos(or actual competitions) of different styles, and meet other ppl with common interests.

I work w/ lots of ignorant white folks, go to "town" and get the classic rude stares, rude comments etc etc ..I hit the trail to get away from all that :16: ..not that it bothers me to see white folks at powwows but please don't ask to touch my outfit :NoNo :NoNo and please...i just wanna sit in the shade in my outfit that makes it hotter than it really is and try not to melt...so plz plz don't ask me...what this and that means, and why is he doing that and so so sorry to bother you but could you interpret that for me????
ok, so i took it too far but generally i just ignore em! cuz i'm there to dance, enjoy the awesome drums, hang w/ friends and relatives I haven't seen since the other powwow last weekend and talk about real rezzed out stuff...like who snagged who and who passed out where at the '9!! just playin!
