YOU AIN'T GOING TO BELIEVE THIS!

Singingdaddy, I still think you work for the Greater Black Hills Chamber of Commerce. Sheesh. For practical purposes, Hawaii and Alaska don't count. (Sorry about that Blackbear.)

Benther_Dunthat, considering it seems the majority of the PW.com folks are East Coasters (from the powwows they say they are attending, etc.), if you measure the distance from Toronto, Canada (and Syracruse, NY, which takes in those Yankees living in Gotham, er, New York City) and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (which takes in all them hobbyist Indians) and find the middle ground, YOU COME UP WITH FAYETTEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA!!!!!! (LMAO!!!!) If you don't know why this is funny, I'm not going to tell you.

On second thought, I'm going to agree 215% with Kiwehnzii, 500 or so powwows in the U.S. and Canada seems like a gracious plenty.

Question

Boy, this topic sounds more like a Church committee than a Pow Wow committee.

Talking Idea?

Ok Guys....the more I read this thread the more excited I got!! Now...after reading 6 pages of the replies let me open my idea. I belong to a group in Middle TN and after our festival we were sitting and talking about how wonderful it must have been in the older days when the tribes has their seasonal gatherings to rekindle relationships, catch up on old friends, make new ones, find new loves etc..well...we have put some thought into having a celebration this spring and invite others to just commune. Now this would not involve the public coming to pay admission etc or for vendors and so on. It would be just to gather and dance, eat, and have a wonderful time. Of course alcohol and drugs would not be allowed as at pow wows. Our group is in the mountains and the area is a wonderful spot not too far from Chattanooga. It is an area that thankfully has not seen as much advancement or "growing up" as many areas have seen that resulted in spoiling the area, killing the trees and wildlife.
So.....what do you think? Would this be something that any of you would like to attend?
Let me know!

Thanks for the response! Well..lets see who else thinks this may be a working idea...I meet with our org. this weekend and we will discuss it further to see what we can get together. I know we can get the area for it. We would just need others who truly want to attend and go from there. Again....this would just be a celebration for everyone to get together and become acquainted. not something the public would be invited to "view". We would spend a few days dancing, eating, making new friends and just enjoying one anothers company...sort of like a huge NA party maybe? LOL

Old Time

Howdy, KI49er:Wave!!! That's exactly what I was trying to get across, an old time community type powwow back home! But, seems like folks over here are intent on money, money, money.

"Show me the money!" :28: "Show me the money!":bouncy: "Show me the money!":39:

My husband just came back from dancing for a month at Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO with the American Indian Music and Dance Show and he said it sucked!!!
Only 3 NDNs showed up to watch the whole month and people wanted to TOUCH his feathers and touch HIM (at least that's what he says, aaaaaayyyyyyy!)
But there was no place to dress, food was high etc. I know it wasn't a Pow-Wow, but I don't think an amusement park is a good place to have one!
Hey! Why don't we have a powwows.com informational booth at one of the biggies like Denver March or at Gathering and everyone can stop by and meet each other and then maybe we can post some info for a private meeting (49) at some location in that city...like Webmaster's hotel room (aaayyyy!) No seriously!!!
It would also be a good place for people to pick up powwows.com t-shirts and other stuff to offset the cost!
What do you think??

Yes KI49er that is what we would like to have. Just a good ole pow wow get together. It would be wonderful if you could attend. How bout car pooling? :) Bet we if we try hard enough we could get you packed in a box and mail ya here!
If my group wants to do this and we can make all the arrangements we will be inviting several other groups and tribes as well as thouse we have become acquainted at other festivals and pow wows. I will try and keep everyone posted but I still need feedback to present to our group.
I am having so much fun here at powow.com and everyone has been so nice and sweet. So everyone...send me your ideas and if you would like to attend!

Thumbs up Ready

OK Guys............I met with our group this weekend and as I mentioned before we had discussed having a gathering in the spring to just invite those who want to socialize and have some enjoyment. Well....we have set a date in May. Now....let me remind you.....there will be no contest, no charge of any type. This is purely for others to become acquainted. This is not something the general public is allowed to attend. It will be intertribal and of course drummers, dancers and singers are all invited. It would be nice to have a general idea of how many will be attending. The location will be in the mountains of middle TN. I know that this will be a stretch for some of you and I hate we could not have a more centralize location. There will be room for tents. Now for those truly interested contact me or post here and I can give you more information. Of course there are still a few details we have to work out. Please be patient and understand this is a first for us in this particular type of thing. Any help and advice will be much appreciated. We do think it will be a great deal of fun and we can always use more of that in our lives. ;)

Talking May gathering

You are cordially invited to the Chikamaka-Cherokee May Gathering on May 18th, 2002 in Tracy City, TN. This is an intertribal social gathering. Our ancestors gathered together for centuries for many different reasons. We feel this is a tradition that has it's importance in forming relationships with other nations and groups. Most of us have the same goals and hopes so it just makes sense to support one another. Remember..there is strength in numbers. It will just be nice to become acquainted with others to eat, dance and just have a wonderful time!! We have secured the entire fairgrounds including the horsebarn and arena. There is plenty of space for camping. It is a covered dish begining at 5PM to ???? For those interested in attending I can send you a flyer either by email or snail mail. It would be wonderful to have a couple drum groups and singers. This is NOT a public spectator event and no competitions. Just good old fashioned fun!
Hope to see you there!
Lep

Thank you for your response. To be honest I could not say for sure. It will begin at 5PM on the 18th and will continue thru the night until everyone is pooped! Most likely some of us will still be "visiting" until Sunday afternoon. The fairgrounds is ours for the whole weekend. There is a powwow taking place in AL on the same weekend so we decided to not have it for a 3 day period as we do with the powwow in August. (which this year will be 6 days)
I hope this answered your question. We would love to have you attend and join in with us. Would you like for me to send you a flyer?
Thanks again!
Lep

Thanks, but I doubt if I would make it from Indy for a one day event. That would be alot of driving in a short period of time. I'll keep it in mind though.
