Women's Tradish went more like this:1st place: Lacy Abrahamson (she missed grand entry and spot check, so I don't know how she got in there-still she looked really really really pretty in her mommas dress)
2nd place: Holly EagleSpeaker - love the way she works her fan
3rd place: Shannon Whiteman (dance off with Tisa Pinkham - both kicked it, but Shannon did a fancy stop and was there without Stan or he was hiding or didn't dance...hmmmm I didn't see him and I was looking)
4th place: Sekwun Ahenakew (dance off with Holly, but Holly got 2nd?)

There were some crazy ties and the weather was HOT then COLD then DUSTY.

The chiggen dance went on forever and men's tradish was messed up. They danced a million songs and ended up with ties still.

women's tradish Holly danced off with Sekwun - that was a tough call and Holly gets second while Sekwun gets 4th????

Shannon danced off with Tisa - another tough match. I do have to say that normally I would have picked Tisa, but this time Shannon worked that fringe! purty southern style and cool round dance. Crazy run off though. I still can't figure out how they scored the whole thing.

Stan went to Poplar and got 3rd behind Walter Runs Above and Waylon LittleTent. Stan Jr.was at Elmo but didn't place in Men's Fancy.

Overall this was a really goot celebration even tho' there was confusion in in the dance contest......I think the good singing madeup 4 it. I like how every dance contest was run with contest drums Bear Creek, The Boyz and Red Bull ROCKED THE HOUSE!!!

bogus results
 
I was told Tisa asked about the confusion at the end of the powwow. They tried to play her like she was dumb. Then she spoke to Diane David. They went and looked at the points. Come to find, Tisa should have taken 3rd place, according to her points. But she wasn't even announced as a winner. Finally, she was give compensation for the sham. Also, I heard four other dancers were compensate for some mistake in the books.

Just as good in some areas, ------maybe.......way better is a laughable overstatement. If they were so good they would have won. They're up and coming, some day they'll make a BIG name for themselves. The winners have paid their dues and deserved to win. Speed is not the only criteria on which the dancers are judged nor is it a measure of who expends the most energy. The winners had more style and more moves----originality, that particular weekend. Maybe next time it will be different. I watched the video footage and the winners appeared to be accurate, at least in the mens fancy category, some of the others were kinda messed up.
