At Mesa (AZ) Powwow every year, we used to have a local homeless nut (white guy) named "Dizz" show up every year on Sunday toting a large wooden cross over his shoulder with a little wheel at the bottom of it. All the little kids would follow him around outside the arena laughing and skipping.

He would be preaching that we (heathen Indians) were all going to hell.

I dunno what ever happened to him though.

A few years back at the Austin, TX pow wow there was this lady wearing a beige sweater and jeans, and she had tied all kinds of bird feathers, turkey feathers, goose feathers, etc. onto that beige sweater and danced. It was pretty weird!!

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!
yes i do its annoying! ;D

It's not the craziest, but it was kind of crazy. Anyway, at the Sac & Fox pow-wow in Stroud, OK, the mc announced that there was certain young gentlemen who was single and wanted to meet a single female singer. The MC had brought him out for everyone to see. He wasn't embarassed, so I thought it was kinda keen. At least he put himself out there. The guy's got guts.

The craziest thing i saw at powwow. Was when we were host drum in Wash. D.C. This white guy dressed up in tradish. outfit was crawling on the ground during a sneak up song, right before the song would start to pick up the guy pretended to throw a handgerande and then with his dance staff he began to act like it was gun and start to point his staff a people in the crowd, and pretended to start shooting everyone. He did this all the way through the whole song.

Once saw a white dude who musta had a dream his grandpy was a big chief or something, cuz he made a head dress from a styrofoam circle (like the kind our kids would use for a floatie) and poked about 500 dyed feathers of all different colors into it, and was actually wearing it on his head..Proud as could be...ahhh Doiii!!!!:Eyepopper

Two things.

At a pow wow in LA a few years ago I was dancing northern tradish and a bug crawled up my fringe on my top down into my underwear. It was just a small spider and it started to bite my butt...and not just once...like 5 times...

I was sitting under our friends arbour in between exhibitions or something...All of a sudden in the middle of the pow wow you hear me screaming and running in circles. I ran out into the arena, out into the vendors area...starting to undress....top flying over to the side...whipping my skirt down (I had a tshirt and shorts on underneath) reaching down into my shorts and running in circles grabbing my own *** trying to squash whatever was biting me.

I finally got it and I ran to the port-a-potty and caught a baby black widow spider in my underpants! It was so sick. I changed and didn't dance for the rest of the day because I thought I was going to die from the poision. I guess black widows are not poisionous when they are small.

Totally embarrassing

Then that same year at Gathering there was this guy coming down the aisle with the men's traditional screaming...he was practically naked with an oar. he was swingin this oar all around and like hitting everyones feathers and stuff. IT was kinda funny at first but if you have seen gatherings grand entry it is like packed, and he was really pushy...everyone was trying not to get hit with this oar....that was insane

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!"
I was there! Yeah i felt bad for her too, but I don't think she was being introduced... what it was is that her grandmother had passed recently and she was "dancing to honour her".

OK, thankyou for clearing that up Blackbear. Now I won't always wonder about it; I still feel bad for whom ever she was.
