Thumbs up Chicken Dance Special at Denver March 2010

just wanted to share this story, i thought it was pretty cool. ok so at the Denver March powwow last month, there was a chicken dance special during the supper break on saturday (i think thats when it was...) anyway, i saw this dancer going up the stairs before they announced the special. turns out the dancer who just went up the stairs was a chicken dancer and was going to compete! so they announce it and i hear someone running back in. he ran all the way back down the stairs- without falling, which is an accomplishment for anyone- and he gets the rest of his regalia back on and sneaks right on in even though the song had already started. so they danced two songs and he was in the finals! everyone was like "Yeah!" because he was actually pretty good. during the final song (or at least, we thought it was the final song) he faced off with one of the other finalist and the crowd went wild! it was so cool! so then the judges decided to have one final song to decide 1st, 2nd, and 3rd and guess who won 1st! it was Robert Fish, the dancer who got there late! Julius Not Afraid got 2nd it was pretty epic.

Should have seen after the first cut, at one point, Julius was facing off with the 3rd place winner, when Robert came dancing through all cho....lila ata kili yelo!

I wasn't at this pow-wow but i heard a lot about this special. From some I heard talk about it, they was very disappointed and that is putting it mildly from a couple. Even the MC voiced his displeasure with the contest afterward. From others i heard it was really exciting and they thought the fighting was just the coolest.

For people who are fairly new to chicken dancing or not use to seeing it was really exciting as you could tell by the cheers from the crowd. For those who has had chicken dancing all their lives they have a different opinion.

By no means am I an expert but I've always been told there is a time & place for chicken dance fighting.
