Even if you wanna believe that no one would lie to you to get in your pants, they just might not know. How many folks out there know someone who was being cheated on and didn't know it?
I plan to teach both my kids the importance of condom use (and yes I have a boy and a girl). I figure it is like self defense cause we all need to know how to protect ourselves, even if we never have to use it (monogamous partnership).

Get Tested!!!

I have to argee that pow-wows have health booths!!! Native people need to get out and get tested!!!! HAY AIDS & STD's are in INDIAN COUNTRY! Thr is a lot of natives who don't know about safe sex and how to protect themselves. plz go to nearest testing place and get tested! Everyone should be tested every three to six monthz for AIDS and STD's. STAY SAFE!!! Use protection everytime you have sex and get educated on all current information on AIDS & STD's...

They also had a TV/VCR with a video running about STD's.

( I used to be a STD Counselor for the Navy at Boot Camp )
I saw young people from all walks of life and the whole Crayola Box. STD's aren't going away folks. Even if you don't believe in them, they definitely believe in you!
Christ, they're doing that now? I guess this shows the amount of decay in Native Societies. I agree with you fully, and even though I don't have kids(16 :O) you old people need to get on the ball and start teaching your kids about STD's.

hand 'em out, show them how to use them, and make sure it's before the '9 ayee!

what's up oneida? nice to see another wisconsinite!!!

I think it is a good idea. I agree children are a gift, but STDs aren't. We try to educate young people and adults in general about the risk of STDs by explaining how we have a friend that is a carrier for HIV. He was unaware of this for years. Healthy as can be. However, anyone he slept with contracted AIDS. He now goes around speaking on responsibility. Although someone appears to be healthy, the risk is still there. He said it isn't that he has to live with the fact that he is a carrier for HIV, but the knowledge that he mindless killed some of his friends who contracted AIDS from him even though he had no knowledge of being a carrier.

People have to realize there are silent killers out there. It is better safe than sorry.

Good discussion i guess people need to be more liberal and don't just take a condom as a joke but more than that.

Hmmm

Considering our population crisis, maybe we should be giving out free scented candles and Viagra instead.

In an ideal world that might work but this is far from an ideal world. Sex is has been more pronounce than in any other generation before an there is much more pressure to do the deed, so to speak.

I think preventive measures like condoms such are a good idea and maybe it should not only be at powwows, but maybe tribes need to step in too with some other preventative care like birth control. There is no need for more single mothers in Indian country I say.

This is great Idea to distribute condoms free of cost, Look it is not much costlier but due to hesitation and laziness people does not want to purchase.Distributing free of cost and different-different places will protect the society from AIDS and it will control the population. so lets take a oath to use condoms regularly.

This subject is near and dear to my heart. Hell I think someone should stand at the 69's and give them out.

I thought the round dances were known as 49 and not 69? Am I right? If you are 69ing you better be using condoms!
