      Well, I'll start it. I did some grassdancing in my younger days. I was at the trail of tears powwow with some sioux friends i traveled with. Interesting powwow, but nonetheless, We were stunned to see some guys gettin high'. We were teen dancers and they weren't. We didn't know what to say. So we shut up. My buddy's parents had no idea either.

      By mid day...... One of the guy's bustle broke. The second never made it back to the second session. The third guy fell off the bleachers. Everyone thought this was odd but noone had no idea.

      I thought i would ask about the second one...... but noone knew. About halfway into the next day, the guy walks into the powwow wondering when is it gonna start. We said. But he argued, till we caught on he was still thinking it was yesterday. I watched while he was questioned. His truck was gone, along with all his regalia and instruments. Took him a while to figure that out, then he accused everyone else.

      Why this story.... it's simple and not intense to start. But becareful on who is watching.....someone above is.

        I still have memories or nightmares of those. When my family tried to get me to start dancin', I went along. They said i could wear my cousin's old grass outfit, i was about 10. They told me to change into the outfit. So i went into the restrooms. Came out to join the inter-tribal. Girls were snickering older guys were laughing. My Aunt runs out with tears in her eyes, laughing hysterically.

        I completely changed out and into the outfit. How? I don't know? What a nightmare..............funny now

          I remember the mud-men, and the fire walkers. Fire walkers dancing through the bon-fire with their tall geometric head-dresses. And the snake dancers...real snakes let out and picked up by the dancers.

          Wow...those were all exciting to this once six year old.

          Been a long time since I thought of them. Since the 1960's.

          Thank you.

            Oh man...I love the fire dancers...I use to actually be scared of them too when I was younger...I remember one time at a dance I was playing around and running back to where they were changing and getting painted...OMG, I remember I got in so much trouble because I was not supose to be back there and see them. I love them now and I enjoy watching them dance and I use to love to watch my grandpa Doc paint them!!

                Here's another one that'll get your mind going.

                This one is familiar to all navajos and those that are related to us. ...............

                I seen some pretty scary things in my life. But nothing goes beyond Skinwalkers. I seen some waiting outside or powwows. I tell ya, i sure didn't go in that one. I turned around.

                Some things i hate are witches that take down good dancers or good people and just bring them down. Only because they are better.

                    What is the crappiest time you ever had at a pow-wow?

                    Years ago, my friend was Miss Midwest and she wanted me to go with her back to Chicago to pass on her title. So, I invited one of my kooky friends, you know the kind, that can make ya laugh about anything and just keeps everything...

                    by Mato Winyan
                    The powwow was last weekend at Indy. I went. I have to admit it wasn't as bad as I had anticipated after being to the other "event" I went to the previous weekend. It was typical for a Indiana powwow.

                    Some of the same spooky people were at both events but the real difference...

                    When I go to powwows, I dance in memory of Digger. My
                    dancing is prayer for him. I dance to say thank you. I
                    dance to say I'm sorry. I dance with him. This is the
                    story of what happened.

                    So what is your funniest going to or coming home from a pow wow story.

                    Here's a good one. I was going to a pow wow in Hopkinsville, KY with my brother, we loaded ourselves and our stuff into my little Chevy Cavalier and took off. Along the way we passed a place called Big Bone Lick State...
