Secret 'Tia Piah' and Powwow in Memphis?

Kiowa's,

Have you heard of a Closed Gourd Dance and invitation only powwow in April here in Memphis. TN? Just heard about it and thought it was strange, especially in TN.

They pronounce it 'Tie Pay' here. Makes me assume if might be wannabee's putting it on.

Yeah, I'm bummed.

Feedback?

The Memphis Tia Piah Society is a daughter society of the Kiowa Tia Piah Society of Carnegie

Having said that, I am not aware of a practice of holding "Closed" Gourd Dances
Nor can I say that this group is of the original group that was given permission to use the name back in the 70's.

Other Daughter Organizations of the Kiowa Tia-Piah
Gulf Coast Tia-Piah
Texas Tia-Piah
Omaha Tia-Piah
During our annual celebration, members of these organizations make their way to Oklahoma to dance during the 4th of July
Itís Open to anyone that wants to Watch or even participate!
