Head staff"s children contesting

Powwow families hit the road constantly. Some parents, are consistently on the head staff of the powwows they attend. Because they are popular and bring follows to the powwows they attend.

Should the head staff's children be allowed to compete in the dance or singing contests?


Whatcha' think?

Its kinda the same thing as the whole family competes
I watched Jr's, Teens and Momma and Daddy win...
So really its just paying the Adults to be on Head staff and the rest getting walkabout money!

Its not the Family that competes its the Judges picking them to win!!

So basically I don't have a problem with it and I have never heard a committee complain about it.
I know there will be some that complain but they are also the same ones that complain when you win or they don't win so
Go for it I say!!

I do not see why not, it's not as if Mom and Dad are the judges...

I see spouses compete, too. I really don't have anything against it at all.

Sorry I misread the comment, yes the children should be allowed, don't exclude them because a parent took the job

There are several more appropriate threads that could address your question. Unless you have children that want to compete in a powwow then by all means read this thread...
