Hello! never posted here before
 
Hello, I'm Theresa! I've never posted here before and thought I should introduce myself. I'm in the Pacific NW and I've never been to a powwow but I want to go to one. :smile:

My family is from the back woods of North Carolina and family history says that a great great grandma was.... ahhh gotcha! I'm totally not Indian at all so I won't pull that one on you. I have no plans to ask anyone anything about spirituality or religion, and I have no plans to dress up like a Native and get offended when you all don't endorse the idea for me.

I actually AM very interested in the native history of America, as well as lots of other history, but I know it's not my history to stake claim to. So I hope I don't inadvertently ask any questions I shouldn't. Hopefully someone will tell me to zip it if I am out of line!

Anyway, that's my intro, I've been lurking for awhile and wanted to say hi. :)

Good one! You can hang out. Those Pacific Northwest powwows rock.

What part of backwoods NC do you come from?

Thanks for the hello's! My family lived in the Alleghany County/ Sparta, NC area from the 1700's up until my grandfather's generation moved west. Apparently they went as far west as they could since my mother grew up on the Oregon coast. I've only been to NC once, beautiful country.

Any powwows you can recommend in the Pacific NW? I have a million questions but I guess I should head to the ask questions about powwows part of the forum for that!

Hello. Since you live in WA state I would say go to the Muckleshoot Veterans Powwow in June. It is a really good powwow, I was there this year and had a good time myself.

Thanks! I will check out the Muckleshoot powwow.
