anyone ever catch crap for being a "powwow ndn"?

had a friend who recently had some other of his fellow tribesmen here in town get jealous i guess......now they kinda talk about him with disdain for being a "powwow" indian and hangin with all of us "powwow" indians.......what do we call them? "ceremony ndns"? .......actually its kinda ridiculous.....but also kind of common in cities....especially with indians who go back to the rez for one week a year and come back super-ndn...........you know you all seen this stuff before

I've caught flack for being a "powwow" ndn. Usually from some "holier than thou" rez ndn that drinks heavily , doesn't work or go to school and has the time to go to every ceremony and sweat as well as every powwow.But not as a participant , just to hang out and be all cool and chit. I,though,as an "urban ndn", not growing up on the rez or even around other ndns, learning to work at an early age , being successful , taking pride in my abilities , then learning who I was and what it means to be ndn , learning songs , building an outfit , becoming an accomplished dancer and now artist, I try not to pay any attention to them. Until they walk the same distance as I have , they have no right to judge me. Even though I always knew I was ndn , I really didn't understand it till I was in my 30s.......and every so often I still get puzzled !

I caught flack from being a pow wow ndn, too, by non-pow wow friends. My friends were from different Pueblos. I find it funny that after a while, their own tribes had embraced pow wows by having one. *shrugs*

kinda re-affirms what i said before when talking about urban ndns.......sometimes it dont even have to be the fact that we powwow......no matter what we do we just aint gonna be indian enough for some of them

most urban ndns that powwow do so because we just like gettin together, listening to drums, dancing, hanging out.......many urban ndns have nothing to do with powwow OR ceremony.....do we label them as bar ndns, school ndns, work ndns, and wino ndns?

the guy and his friends running their mouths might be called "protest ndns" because im sure they will be downtown throwing bottles at cops for columbus day as well bragging to everyone they got their asses arrested just like the last few times......and these are ADULTS....what can i say? whatever makes you feel more indian........

I'm not pueblo. My friends are from different pueblos. I'm Alabama-Coushatta.

While I was at UNM, my mentor from the enrichment program was Ron Martinez from Taos. I had a blast with him!

Oh, flack comes from all over: professional powwow ndns, only local powwow ndns, and the labels mentioned above, and any others that you can conceive....and it gets dispersed from each group as well.

Seems to be human nature to have an US VS. THEM mentality.

Don't label me, bro!

well......as usual i got called a sellout by some protest ndd because i didnt want to waste a vacation day taking a 3 hour drive to pueblo to demonstrate against the columbus day parade......yay me!!! but i wonder where all these people hibernate until next columbus day? and where are they during keystone xl and white clay protests? where are they when the winnemem wintu need backup? and how open is their checkbook during rockin the rez propane drives and adam beach foundation? or even their LOCAL ndn centers? i donate some to indian center, and i donated to CANA and plan to donate more...a few times a year i throw 20bucks to rockin the rez or adam beach.................i noticed most protest indians like stand alongside drunk mexicans and throw bottles and cuss out cops....at least thats what i saw here in 2007.......thoughts? anyone go out yesterday and throw some rocks?
