  • What are the things that you can't PowWow without???

    What are those items that you can't leave home without, can't imagine not having with you??? I have a basket that my hubby calls the basket of tricks, it has everything from Aspirin to chapstick to bug spray to ziplock bags in it... I could almost do minor surgery with the stuff in the basket...So what are those things that you have to have....

    So my basket of tricks is the my can't leave home without... we have turned around and went back to the house and got it when it got left behind once.... Thank goodness for the check list.. and checking that all the items on the check list are checked off.....
    Thankful for the blessing from the Creator in my life!!!!

    Life should not be measured by the number of things that we aquire on our journey but by the number of lives that we touch along that road.

      I keep on hand baby wipes, safety pins, duct tape (different colors), electrical tape, e 6000 glue, earring posts, band aids. Must haves water bottle and hair spray, extra hair rubberbands & barettes. A needle and thread is always required also. I think that does it. I'm sure other things but those are top on my list.

          Ummmmmm my son's outfit!!! We were in Seattle and headed to Julyamsh which is a few hour drive, at least 5 hrs. My sis lives up near Everett, WA. In a hurry we rushed to pack everything and get on the road.... After about an hour of driving and we're headed up the pass...I looked back...omg his outfit is sittin in the closet!! I looked at my watch...okay okay we can do this.... Drove back to Everett, got the outfit we left there at 2:30pm and booked it across the state. We actually got there about 6pm. Dang I don't remember when I made that 5 hour trip in 4 hours....phew

          it was funny though.

                        I'm about the same way but here's my list: regalia, hair ties, bias tape (braid wraps), comb, sunglasses, cash, bug spray, duct tape, blanket, jacket, jeans, tennis shoes, camera, video camera, two-yr old son's backpack with sippy cup, snacks, diapers etc...One time we had just got all the way outta town and onto the main highway (about 20 mins from our house) when I realized we left my daughter's beadwork at home. Of course we had to do a 360 and pick it up...

                        I hate it when I get to a powwow and realize I forgot something...

                            scissors!

                            i always try to check my suitcase to make sure my outfit is all there before heading out to pw... one time i forgot to check and come grand entry time... i didn't have a shawl!
                            i don't like borrowing other peoples things so my sis was kind enough to cut her shawl in half!
                            omg my mom had a fit... but my sis wouldn't let me go without... haha! (that's why the scissors were handy)

                                what do you use for breast plates....

                                breastplates, bandoliers, etc....

                                I have tried fishing line, sinew and beading wire to string my breast plate and it always breaks.

                                Anyone got any suggestions to prevent this from happening again? Glass beads are expensive!!!

                                Hey dudes, I need some advice. I coach lacrosse with a bunch of 17-18 year old boys. Anyway, I have a moral dilemma. I have watched 5 of my players get into fights during the box season this year. None of them can fight their way out of a paper bag. My problem is that for the most part, they are...

                                I cleaned out my old desk to give it to our youngest daughter. Talk about JUNK! I found political stuff dating back to 2001, catalogs, missing packs of pens, things that should have been filed ages ago and all kinds of stuff. If you haven't cleaned out your desk lately, you might want to, who knows...
