Red Earth 2012?

What's the word on the streets? Good turnout expected this year or no? Anything different expected this year?

We had a great time. Felt sorry for the dancers in that heat, but they fought through it. Wife & I were driving each other nuts trying to remember where we knew Josette Wahwasuck from until her dad...

We'll be there. We booked the La Quinta and are ready for a weekend away. Just look for the white couple that look out of place.

This pow wow would be so much better if there was a limit to the number of "specials" or presentations. They serve an important purpose, but let's put a "maximum per night" limit.
I will come back...

This a fantastic thread and one I've wanted for a long time. I always thought Texas was very "lacking" in the number of pow wows, but I think it's because I was just unaware of all of them. We...

Seems very drastic to me. What if a deaf person was taking pics and didn't hear the announcement? If a particular pow wow feels that strongly against it, why not just post signs everywhere "no...

If this is one those "insulting questions" then I apologize, but I find it strange for you to say "stay away from the whistles", when I'm merely a spectator in the stands. I don't participate, I only...

No I certainly do not think every non-native should feel wrong by being on the arena floor. Not at all. That's just me. I feel my place is in the stands. It's a personal thing. I've been down there...
