  • Mexicans in Powwows

    How do you guys feel about “Mexicans” dancing and/or singing In Powwows? Do you guys feel it is wrong since it is not their tradition or do you see it as just another native powwowing?

    In my mind I have to ask : What is your definition of "Mexican" ? Who gets to decide who is native and who is Spanish , because before the Spanish came , those were tribal peoples.(and still are !) And the other question would be : Where do you draw that line as to who can and who cannot powwow ? I have seen "non"native people ,all the way to full bloods dance , compete , hang out with friends at powwows , so who has that right to say who can or cannot powwow ? I think as long as the proper respect is shown , I don't have an issue ! Just my opinion.....
    I believe blood quantums are the governments way to breed us out of existance !

    They say blood is thicker than water ! Now maple syrup is thicker than blood , so are pancakes more important than family ?

    There are "Elders" and there are "Olders". Being the second one doesn't make the first one true !

    Somebody is out there somewhere, thinking of you and the impact you made in their life.
    It's not me....I think you're an idiot !


    There's a chance you might not like me ,

    but there's a bigger

    chance I won't care

      So how do you all feel about native drum groups supporting non-native powwows????
      How do you as a singer feel about supporting non-native pow wows???? Is it right? Is it a slap in the face to real natives?
      If the drum groups wouldn't support these dances, wouldn't these hobbyists have...

      ???Question for all Spectators???
      by Khioye_Mayi
      I'm working on a paper about fan culture and my topic is powwows... So anyway, I have a real easy question.

      What do you get out of powwows (music, dancing, etc.)?
      I mean, as a fan of something like powwows, why do you go? And how do you participate, even as a spectator?
