I didnt mean to start a fight
But can I set things right?
The description has been edited
So beatings are not needed.
Now married men leave it be
Or the womens whips your will be forced to flee
If, in future, my parts I describe
I shall limit it to my vibe.

Are we fighting? You ain't seen nothin Sunshine!

If you think this is bad, you should hang with some of us at powwow. You will not sleep and enjoy the whole weekend!

Sleeping is reserved for Monday after powwow! No time to sleep on the weekend!

If you insist we get back on track, we will try.

Here is why a powwow outfit costs so much:

All the hard work put into it. The ribbons, the lace, the hand work, the loads of thought all play a big part in making an outfit. That is why it costs so much.

However the love put into it if free!

One more thing: The person putting together the outfit is usually feeding a family. Gotta eat ya know!

Well said TKMJ ... I also think that a lot of times the cheap, mass produced clothes remove a lot of people from the reality of how much indivudalized beautiful clothing costs. Even getting a very simple, no decoration dress custom made can cost several hundred dollars. Materials are expensive, time is expensive. But since most of us shop at walmart or target (or clearance racks!!) we think a piece of clothing should cost $10. We have that frame of reference when we approach regalia buying. We know that it took time and supplies, but it just seems sooooooooo expensive.

btw TKMJ, Im glad you mentioned "the loads of thought". I think that a lot of time people dont think about the thought that goes into creating something - and the time and energy that thought takes. We might think of how much time it takes to physically create but forget that the people had to imagine, design, plan and even acquire materials.

Don't I know it! My wife can spend an entire weekend going shop to shop and come back with 2 yards of ribbon and an empty tank of gas. She started with a full tank Friday night.

But that ribbon she found was the most perfect ribbon you ever saw for that dance outfit she was making!

The regalia I made when I got married cost me$140 in hines' $300 in beads, plus thread, needles, barette backs etc. Now I made it over the course of a year while making everyone elses regalia to, but the whole top was beaded, plus other beaded accessories...so what you'd pay for a 3 hide Northern dress with fully beaded yoke isn't so bad. It usually costs me about $100 in material and notions and $40 in ribbons to make a fancy shawl regalia, the applique mqy be simple or it may have hundreds of hand made applique that needs to me put on, sewn up etc. It takes me 7 - 10 days (depending on the dress and my spare time. You look at how much those cost and the seamstress probably didn't even make minimum wadge; I don't. Grass dance has less material but way more ribbon and yarn for fringe.....Make sence now?

I so much agree! It take so much time to do anything correctly when it comes to regalia. On the male side roaches take a lot of time too. Your husband and I both know that. Just look at the cost of horse hair or quills if your not lucky enough to come by them naturally. How about making up a bustle? Another time consumer that can cost a lot to put together. Just finding the correct feathers can be such a pain and can take well over a year.

People really don't understand what we all do to put things together.

Just look at what we do to make up buckskin if we are doing it from from raw hides. Tanning skins can be one hell of of process to get them just right.

Regalia is the dance clothes we wear at powwow. Check out the gallery section to get an idea. Many non-Native people use the word costume, lots of people don't like this....however it has been pointed out that up North especially where english is the second language they translate it to the word costume, but to be safe use regalia....few questions are dumb.

If you don't get per capita, you probably shouldn't dance. Best to just sit on the sidelines, applaud politely, when asked, but don't whistle. Stand when everyone else does, and sit when they sit. Sort of like going to Church. Don't buy anything, there are rules about that, too.

If your idea of dance on the basis of per capita was a law, it would effectly shut down almost every powwow east of the Mississippi river. What about the tribal members that don't get any money? Should they not be allowed to dance?

How else are you going to tell if they are Indian enough? If they get per cap, then it's pretty much assured that they are Indian enough. The Tribes go thru vigorous background checks to assure than anyone who gets a per cap, is Indian enough.

You see those dancers out there kicking real high, jumping around, really shaking what they got, having a good time? Those are the ones who just got their per cap. The ones with the long faces, all sullen, and Holy looking, those are the ones with no per cap. Some of those guys have great big trust funds, and they are just waiting to get their sweaty little hands on that stuff. The others, not so much, dancing, sullenly, is all they got. No way to tell if they are Indian enough, no per cap. They could be Hollanders, for all we know, wearing their wooden shoes when they are not dancing. I think I saw a pair of those wooden shoes, holding someone's seat while they were dancing.
