Introduction

Hi everyone!

I realize that I posted on a few threads but never posted an introduction.

My name is Melissa...I'm originally from Texas but now I live in Canada. I'm not Native American (lol though I have heard some people in my family tell the classic "someone in the family was Native American" story that every white person hears).

I didn't come onto the forum looking to to be a "wannabe" or a "hobbyist" as I've seen other white folks described (I'm comfortable with who I am). I'm here because I homeschool my kids, and when I teach them about history/other cultures, I want to give them an accurate picture of indiginous culture and history. We do a lot of "field trips" related to whatever we are studying, and I thought that attending a pow wow (as a spectator, of course) would be a great way to introduce the kids (and myself, really, too) to Native American culture.

I also have lots of questions about a lot of different things.

I hope you guys don't mind me being a part of your community here :). Everyone has been very friendly to me so far, and I really appreciate that a lot. Thanks!

Nice to meet you all :)

Melissa

Welcome to Powwows.com. ^^^^^I want to add to the comment that we are all pretty much blunt and you must have a strong skin to take the blunt. We have the experience of being perspective as Native people.

Enjoy reading and posting here. It is good to know that you want to learn about us and our traditions. We are many different tribes in North America and also South America.
