Pow Wow Mishaps!

whats going on everybody!

just think of funny things that go down at pow wows, anybody got some good pow wow mishaps, embaressment, or fails? heres one of mine

so there I was, (as every good/not so good story starts) Chillin at Pechenga Pow wow 2012. fell asleep in my folding chair, out like a light. probably out for about 30 minutes. so i wake up and here this bad *** crow hop song that ive heard 'the boyz' sing before. I thought it was an intertribal so I ran out there and go down to dancing in my drowsy state of mind......

but it wasnt an intertribal. guess...... womans fancy competition. the mc comes over the intercom and says we got a grass dancer out there. and i think to myself well im a grass dancer. i look around and see them shawls flying everywhere.

needless to say I left. Pure embaressment.

your turn!

i was joking lol


okay i'll share one. a guy i used to work with wanted to start dancing, and asked me to make him an outfit. i made the bells for him too, first time for me. he goes to a powwow and i see him monday, he's a lil salty. i ask him how the powwow went? he said during the first song, all the bells came off one by one. he looked at me like it was my fault, but i said you musta been dancing too hard.

i bought him some bells made by a pro and gave them to him.

@Joe's Dad, @Toolbox - your turn!

In 2005 my college friends and I drove to Schemitzun, first time there for me. I had a really bad cold that weekend and was kind of loopy the whole time. Anyways I'm sitting up in one of the end grand stands beginning to doze off during the evening contests when I look down the bleachers a bit and see this big tuft of something fluffy headed right towards me so I react by falling back behind my row and nearly falling through the crack into the space below the stands. When I regained my composure a second or two later I see that it was some random hackle or angora bit that had come off of a dancer and the reason why it looked like it was headed towards me to attack was that it had gotten stuck on some long leg fringe of a men's fancy dancer and it whipped towards me because he was walking up the stands to grab his stuff before his contest. He saw me fall back and was like "you alright man?" I said "Yeah, I'm fine" and tried to play it off. I then told him he had something stuck to his leg.

Thats about it. Not too many mishaps here other than camera cards failing or the handle snapping off of the cooler as I was carrying it up to our canopy.

Here is some my stories out on the powwow trail.
Quote:
What is the worst powwow collisions and accidents you have seen.
Fist story involved a fancy dancer me and a line of northern trad he went charging and rammed me from behind I almost smashed into northern trad bustle and wrecked it.
story number 2
I almost went head on with kid dancing a intertribal that could got ugly with his mother out there.
story number 3
gotten side swiped a few time out there.
the fancy dancer wreck was like a train wreck with the cars on on their sides.

Remember "Confessions from the Powwow trail" Facebook page. Most are too X rated for this site.

I was sitting under the arbor at Oklahoma Indian Nations with my husband and 3 of 4 of my kids and we were eating french fries from a vendor. Anyway, the area was half roped off and we didn't notice. I guess someone had "saved" it for thier family and when they got there they seen us sitting there and started fussing. My husband said, calm down, we can move. Which we did, in front of the bleachers, at which time, it started to pour down rain. I mean it poured! Buckets. So I went back to camp with my husband and my boys. My daughter though sat there for hours and when it got done raining, she walked by where we had been sitting and grabbed the tarp on one end and dumped water all over that family! Then she ran back to camp....LMAO
