Talking Fancy shawl

Do you have to live on a reservation to dance as a fancy shawl dancer at a pow wow? I am not trying to say all native Americans live on reservations because I don't, I was just wondering. I am mi'kmaq and Taino and want so much to dance fancy shawl. any info would be helpful. Thanks!

To answer your question simply, no you do not have to live ON a reservation. That would kinda suck for us who are several states away from our rez!

It can be helpful to be in contact with people from your tribe when learning to dance, but that doesn't mean you can't dance at all because you're not near your rez. I'm Lakota and currently live on the east coast, and a lot of the people around here are Lumbee. They've been extremely helpful with giving me pointers, but I ALSO contact a few friends back home as well.

Rules depend on the powwow.

I missed seeing your introduction. Welcome to powwows. I saw the painting of the Indian girl with the wolf and the moon on your personal page, but you didn't tell us much about you. Are you a young person? Are you going to sew your own fancy shawl outfit? Anyway, I am pleased to meet you!

Have you gone to many powwows before? You might enjoy that right now, and tomorrow there is a powwows.com live stream powwow going on. If you go to the main page, at the top, you click on the live powwow, and follow it through for the live broadcast. It's free too.

I hope you enjoy the site! It is loaded with information!

Again, Welcome!
