  • looking for any help

    Ok here is my question how would I go about being able to see a pow wow in person even though I am part Cherokee I have my moms looks. Sorry but for many years every time I even tried to talk about my dad I was told to give it up cause you see I was adopted at a very young age. And when I was thirteen I got to meet my dad just before he past away so now I have been running into brick walls ever since.

    Thank you for any help
    Take care and live life to the fullest

      anyone is welcome at a powwow.and during intertribals..just about anyone can dance...but a word of advice...go to a few dances and watch...see how things are done....if you want to dance...see how the women follow them....nothing is more uhhhhhh fustrasting....than watching a woman mimicing the men....or doing the flower power butterfly thing....go out with'lll usually find someone willing to show whats right or wrong....but the key word is respect.

            You will probably have a great time it you go to one. I go to many of them even though I am not NDN since so many of my friends are vendors and dancers. I always enjoy the friends AND the dancing AND of course THE FOOOOOD!!!!
            You can't help but enjoy yourself. There are always so many friendly people there.

              pow wows

              I've been to arizona and there are lots of powwows put on by the tribes that own casino's. There is a powwow search here on this website too. You can put the area you are looking for and then it will tell which ones are in your area. try the calander or the singing and drumming.
