HEY I SEEN HER TOO!! yup only she was dressed up like Pocahauntus from the Disney movie,, yeah you know the one strap shoulder,short mid thigh dress that looks kinda like Wilma from the Flinstones and she had big Hooters to match, she was also wearing shimmering brown pantyhose and a black long haired wig, and had her little blonde baby girl dressed up the same way,, this woman did Grand entry ,,Somebody should have stopped her and told her Fabio was waiting for her on the other side of the arena.

One of the craziest things I've seen was...this whole group of natives was drinking at a powwow and this one guy went to the portapotties while this other guy was in there and started shaking it and tipped it over. The guy came out of the john and started swinging so both of their drum groups saw and jumped in. The women were even fighting! They were jumping on the mens backs and the men where knocking them out to. All I seen were fists, hair, and ndns!LOL I never seen so many ndns fighting at one time!LOL THere were like 25-30. THe sercurity said I'm staying outta this one and let them go at it. I was only 7-8 years old. LOL

Ok, this may not be the funniest thing, but here goes.

There was this one dancer who I hadnt seen before. He had black fake leather all over, some nice fake eagle feathers, ( BTW, I HATE fake eagle feathers, man they always look so poo. :-D ) a little asian fan for his fan, and was wearing a tophat, dancing tradish like. He danced in front of the head dancer after he blew his eagle whistle ( I know some people dont think that matters ). But he got pulled aside, and Jim ( the head dancer ) takes the MC's mic and starts ranting about what he did wrong, he made this guy pay his drum money for being in the way and disrespecting Jim. That was the first and last time I saw that guy....and yes....he was white.
Another white guy (this guy has blonde curly hair and skin so white it hurts to look at in direct sun light lol :-p ) that still dances around here has some ....*cough* interesting *cough* regalia. It is basically fake black leather with fake black tip eagle feathers and such all over it, his head band, and his bustle. Now, he has been dancing for a long time since I first saw him a few years back, and I will hand it to him his regalia is slowly improving....but because of his store bought look.
His nickname is K-mart. Hence, his entire outfit coulda been bought at K-mart. :-p
Now for anyone that knows me, yeah I look like the some typical white kid. But you know I have been around a while and dance right and all that good stuff. So don't jump on me guys. :-D

Thumbs up

Pounce, jump, bamm,,, ayeee lol, as for looking white well, I know a fancy shawl dancer,, she has blonde hair blue eyes and light skin, part white yes but she was Diegeno, when she first started dancing I noticed alot of other people either being rude to her making comments ,or ignoring her, and of course she never won, but she continued and she always held herself with respect, not many knew who her father was and even when they found out she never used that to her advantage, I have seen her dance since she was a little girl, and now as a young woman in her twentys she is still fancy shawling, she is the best fancy shawl dancer I have seen, and after a while begin to earn the respect of the other dancers, and yes even begin to win and asked to be Headdancer at some powwows, it was kinda sad to see that she was being judged by her skin color but because of so many of whom are spoken of here that is the way it goes I suppose,,, I give her much credit most would have quit.

At our first local 4th of July powwow in 2001; someone had a dance special for an older teenager, I guess she was being introduced to the dance arena or something. I missed what they had announced at the time; but I didn't miss what happened next. She danced around the circle; I was just thinking she shouldn't be fancy dancing with a breastplate down to her ankles on! I didn't even have time to point that fact out to my hubby; before she totally tripped on it and went flat down to the floor in a heap of powwow roadkill. I was so embarrased for her. I was glad to see, one of the elder dancers get out on the floor to make sure she was ok, and to join her in dancing the rest of her song. All I can say is,"glad it didn't happen to me!"

Well i dont know about the craziest thing that I seen, but the craziest thing thats happened to me, or most embarassin i should say, is ..well couple of years ago i posed rather naked on the cover of Spirit Magazine. IT was alll in good taste my son and my partner --it was a familyyy thing. But anewayz, we were at Skydome Powwow this year and my friend, grabed this huge maybe 8 by 5 poster of the cover, and ran to the drum n started waving it around over top of me!!! I was like well didnt know what to do so I kinda just lowered myself in the chair, it was right at the end of the powwow when they were given out prizes :wall: lol

The craziest thing that I have ever seen at Pow Wow was seeing a very large red headed white woman wearing a pocahontas costume....and I knew it was a costume because my cousin used to work at Costumes Plus....

LOL..i think I hear that joke at every pow wow I go to.. :)

Or how, Shania Twain was set to marry Jordin Tootoo but she called off the wedding becuz she didnt want to be known as Shania Tootoo Twain...

The craziest thing I've ever seen is how the john kerry campaign committee took over the powwows two days before he even set foot inside the arena. Then during the day when he was supposed to make his appearance, secret service delayed the gourd dance while they took their time setting up metal detectors through which all powwow participants and spectators had to go through before getting down into the grounds.

Hey I remember that magazine! I was at the Skydome powwow and I brought a few copies home with your family's pics on there. I was teasing my son and his wife saying that they should pose like that, with their baby, for our Tribal newspaper, lol... That was a couple of years ago.... Very cool pic and I thought that you guys were very brave. we also saw your wife walking around and some of my friends from Manitoulin pointed her out to me. Pretty cool! How's the magazine going by the way?? I haven't been able to go back yet :(

Ok the craziest thing I ever saw was at a cherokee powwow in NC they had this blanket in the middle of the dancing circle so you could put donation money on it. We this one little boy ran up to mut a dollar in but when he got the he threw the dollar then grabbed a twenty and ran. It was really quite funny he was only like 3.

I heard a joke at the gateway to nations powwow in brooklyn. The announcer guy said, "What do Indian men and parking spaces have in commin?...... All the good ones are taken and the rest are handicapped"! It was so funny the 83 yr old Wampanoag women that was with us nearly fell over laughing it was a scream. But the best part was all the white ppl there were like..huh.

don't you hate when the server glitches like that Iroquoios Femme?

I've seen too much strange stuff to even say... but I guess i would have to say the strangest is our local nuage wonder who dresses in a faux buckskin dress with fringe AND jingles and wears a fringed poncho for a shawl but wears it wide open so you see the head hole. But she also does'nt carry it.. she dances .. ok she skips around a powwow circle like a little girl does on a playground while waving this poncho behind her like she's supposedly fancy shawl dancing. Her bright red curly hair and alabaster skin dotted with freckles. Her Seneca grandmother being Twyla Nitch LOL! OH yeah, I forgot.. minnetonka boots!
