        Asking for your support in 2012 :-)

        Hello my name is Sarah Barnes, I know several of you know me from online and others are probably thinking WHO is she? Well I was honored by being asked to represent you all in 2011 as the first ever Powwows.com Ambassador, so I took the opportunity and I will have to say it made my year of 2011 AWESOME!! I want to think you all for the support and continued support you gave me! It was amazing! I also loved traveling and promoted Powwows.com to the best of my ability throughout 2011, I met so many people along the way, even my college for the most part knows about Powwows.com now :-) Oh and even some members of JobCorps up in KY :D .


        Now for the information :
        Name: Sarah Gail Barnes
        Tribe: Cherokee, Choctaw and others-not enrolled
        Occupation: College student majoring in Social Work/Social Welfare at Dyersburg State Community College, also taking a course in Electronic Health Records, and Legal Assisting- I have several training hours in Early Childhood Education, but decided I wanted to go more into helping the world around me and not just one specific age group. I am also a DNA collector for paternity cases, I get called in to collect DNA at the local jails and prisons :-), then I am a substitute teacher at Building Blocks Learning Center here in Ripley, and also a tutor during the school year in the evenings- I stay busy but I know what I want for myself in this life and thus I am going to work had to get there :-)

        Why do you want to be Powwows.com Princess:I want to be your 2012 Powwows.com Princess because I really love this website! It is my go to guide whenever I'm looking for videos of dancing, photos of different styles or regalia, and I use it as a reference whenever I can for classwork or special cultural projects. I also had so much fun being the Powwows.com Ambassador last year I hope I can reign this year as your Princess!! Please vote for me- I will fulfill my "job"(although I don't classify it as work since it is so fun) duties and get to as many events as I can afford!

        As far as a brief report of my last powwow- I am adding this link to my post "2011-2012 Ambassador Travels-it has information,pictures and a link to a couple of YouTube videos-please take time to review :-)http://www.powwows.com/gathering/showthread.php?t=61886

        Ok, hope that all was not confusing, and I will greatly appreciate your votes for me for 2012 POWWOWS.COM PRINCESS!!


        Please let me know of any questions you may have- thanks you again and God Bless-Sarah
        I don't doubt anything, but I question everything
        All I know is what I do not know and will never know all of what I do not know.

          I want to be your 2012 Powwows.com Princess because I love going to pow-wows and representing Native people! I love coming on the website b/c I can come here when I am having a bad day and laugh with some of the "residents" LOL I also had so much fun going to pow-wows and meeting some of our members at them!! Please vote for me- I will keep up with everyone on my travels of pow-wows as I can afford!

          The last pow-wow I went to last year was Shinnecock Indian Pow-Wow. Being able to dance with my family and friends was an amazing feeling. The colors of the beadwork and feather work are that of Crayola Crayon Factory. I loved watching the young children and the older adults come out and join in the singing and dancing.

                        Name: Amanda Taylor
                        Tribe: Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe
                        Age: 26
                        Occupation: Full time Student getting my Lakota Language Teaching Certification for the State of South Dakota. I am also the new Tribal Historic Preservation Office Data Entry Clerk for the Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe.

                        I want to represent as Powwows.com Princes for 2012-2013 because I am dedicated to the continuation and preservation of the language of my people. I love to dance and be active within my culture!! I have represented the Tiospaye Student Council at the University of South Dakota for two years as Miss Tiospaye USD. I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts majoring in American Indian Studies with a 3.0 GPA. Last semester, as a student in the Lakota Language Education Action Program, I was named to the Dean's List with a semester GPA of 3.75. I believe that not only could I represent my own community with pride and honor but I feel like I could do the Powwwows.com community proud too!!

                            Recently we had a discussion on how to bring more "Powwow" people to this site, not just the forums. So my question to all of the candidates is:

                            How would you bring and involve more Powwow people or ndn's in general to this site?
