gord dance society

Does anyone know if there are any Gourd Dance socities in Manitoba,Canada or Winnipeg?

and If not Does anyone Know Of How I can Start a Gourd Dance Society or anyone who would be able to teach me how to do so. I have been dancing this catagory since 2001-2002.

I have heard that it started with the kiowa tribe, but it is not only connected with them, but others as well. and it is a dance honouring warriors and veterans, but not only for them anyone can enter into the gourd dance.

I have also heard that some societies have a prerequisite, that you have to be a vet. in order to dance the Gourd dance. I am a peacetime vet., but I would like to honour everyone, not only the veterens and allow anyone to dance.

please let me know by directing me to the correct places or people in order that I may learn more about how to start a society here in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
