    Funny enough the other day I saw a hipster girl wearing Navajo mocs like those while riding to class. They didn't actually look to bad, just was odd to see them out of context. I see they're sellin them online.

    Makizin question.

    I see hipsters wearing Minnetonka’s all the time nowadays. I'm always makin fun of them. I thought about wearing my fully beaded ones downtown just to show em up.

    As far as wearing tribal specific mocs, it doesn't matter. I'm woodland Anish but the pucker toe style isn't my favorite. I have the plains style with Ojibwa patterns beaded on em, That seems to me what many dancers are doing.

He told everyone his "indian" name was "Dancing Buffalo" .....we just shook our heads and figured it was more like "Prancing Cow" . He basically got walked off the Arena. Depending on what kind of dance you are at will determine how these types of people are dealt with. Sadly these people are finding more of a foothold in many communities.

    I agree with you Tradishdncr. I was at Red Earth this year and during the drum competition there were these mountain men/????/ I don't know what the heck they were people.We couldn't see the competition from our seats because they were crowded around everywhere. Anyway. Have a good one.

    Wolfin hon, you were not at a powwow, you were at a gathering of white people playing powwow. Now normally this would be a nasty post from me but I KNOW where you are coming from cuz I was adopted too. You need to find your roots.. Canadian adoptions all got opened this year. Figure it out. Also, only got to functions where there are lots of Natives and 2 whites (not the other way around). Those white wannabes they will take a kid like you and put you on a pedistal. Not because your Native, because your a Native who doesn't know anything yet and they need someone like you to make them look more creditable. I have seen it happen. Everything that was lost to you in adoption, you can get back but it will take lotsa time. The good news is, it is worth the wait. Maybe someone from here in your area can give you a hand. For starters I am giving you a number for CAS (children's aid society) in canada to find out how to get your records (cuz I remember you sayin you were from canada)
    (613) 747-7800 This number is for Ottawa (the capital)
    If you were from Ontario, this site is how to apply for records and info:
    Access to Adoption Records Act - Ontario.ca
