The gourd dance originated with the Kiowa people and began with the "Legend of the Red Wolf." Look for a video tape called "Into the Circle" and you can probably get an a better understanding of this warrior's dance. Here in Oklahoma the Kiowa Tia Piah Society has their annual gourd dance around the fourth of July at Chieftain Park near Carnegie, Ok.

Relate to her like someone from Canada that has been to more round dances than powwows and the powwows she has been to are all northern protocol.

There are many tribes that claim this dance. But the Kiowas are the ones who were to get the dance going again in the sixties and seventies. The story of the Red wolf comes from the Kiowas. If you look in the arcives this has been discussed many of times....
