Gourd dancing is a ceremonial dance.

Gourd dancing IS NOT a dance exclusively for veterans.

Women should never handle a gourd during the gourd dance.

Today I see two different types of gourd dancing which isn't suppose to be...

The Kiowa gourd clan-yes ceremonial..

Then we have the pow-wow gourd dance nothing like the Kiowa Gourd clan is doing.

I feel these types of people mainly super hobs and wannabe's adopt the groud dance for themselves and is making a mockery of the real Kiowa Gourd clan.......

So if your asking for your own personal information that is okay....

from what I understand they don't expect you to go and run a gourd dance at a pow-wow without a Kiowa Gourd Clan member being present
.....my opinion and I'm sticking to it lol and if I'm wrong I'm sure somebody will let me know (smiles)
