Good Medicine?

(Disclaimer: Names and places left out on purpose)

What do you do when a family is stranded at a powwow? Mom, Pops, teens, and a tyke?

Sure I can get you home, no problem (they low-balled me on the distance)

(I can see why they lowballed me! Everybody else was turning them away)

Okay...let's go!

Oh...up by Edwards AFB? Okay...................

I repacked my truck, moving some large items onto the roof.


OK, let's go!

Then, the good medicine started coming into play.

We all had the most enjoyable conversation about their tribal history, and involvement in powwows, gatherings, etc.

The long distance of this "ride home" gave time for everybody to chime in, and add to their family story.

So we finally arrive...at Timbuk 3...it's a little father out than Timbuk 2....and they have a gas station!


So the kids run to the other kids that couldn't go to the powwow, fill them in on the adventures, the cute boys or foxy chicks they exchanged numbers with...etc

The parents offered gas money, I pointed to all the kids and said with all those mouths to feed, I could not take anything from them, the conversation was my fulfillment.

Then the father asked me if I could help them with another matter.

(Oh boy...hope its not "donate a kidney"...these guys are that good!)

Well, he tells me a college student came out and filmed lots of footage of them for a documentary, but she then became pregnant and shelved the whole project.

They are wondering if they could get the footage from that woman, and releases, if I could edit it into a product they could try to market.

What did I say?

Who got her pregnant? LOL

No, LOL

I explained the editing process, and how it is better that they are involved all the way. It is their culture, their story.

I told them I have learned not to over-commit...but once they catalogue the scenes and content, and write a general concept on what this video will portray...

....then I will commit...as partners in this project.

So, there you have it. A real powwow road trip adventure with a "happy ending".

As it should be.
