    I maybe opening a can of worms but why a powwow in Ohio?????? Why not a powwow in the west or north. Sometime ppl on the east coast get carried away from traditions and it turns into a big wannabe/hobbyist powwow. Dont get me wrong I have good friends that dance in and around ohio, some powwows are not bad and some are!!! Just becareful when attending a powwow out east. I know that some ppl will disgree and I respect that, we are all human and created by the Creator, and no two ppl are like.
    Dance hard like there is no tomrrow. Hoka!

    Being Native American isn't JUST about blood. It is a Spiritual way of life.

        you can do no wrong in ohio. just make sure to enter in the arena with a shawl during intertribals. native americans account for 0.2% of the population so expect to see a lot of non-idigenous people pretending to be native.

          um

          well ohio is where i live and i really dont have money to travel yet :( so I have to do and be happy with what i got right? but I didnt even get to go today (its only one day thing) I came out ready and rarin to go and my car was leakin oil. so yay. I was so mad and i dont get mad often! but it made me mad I was so looking forward to it! Next pow wow i guess :( I'm so sad. Well so you mentioned a shawl? Can I make it ? I dont have alot of money times are tough so i def cant buy one, should i look at the crafts forum and ask how to make a shawl? Or would it just make me look like a "wanna be" to? I'm not a wanna be I just respect the native ways very much so and I do have little native in me (might have more but i'm saying little for now cuz i do know i have a little bit in me-- still reseraching my fathers side--he was adopted) so um what u think?

            Jadenia, you should check out the NAICCO (Native American Indian Center of Central Ohio). Carol Welsh, the Executive Director of NAICCO, is part of the .2% ndn population of Ohio. There is a list of powwows on their site.

              Yes, you cam make a shawl yourself, super simple.
              Buy two yards of 60" wide fabric, hem, and add fringe.
              Look for the fringe threads in the craft forum.
              ...it is what it is...

                      Things to do and see.

                      A must, eat some fry bread!! Other than that, meet people there, watch and listen and learn. If you make new fiends you might be able to borrow a shawl during the dance.

                        In the past i've usually kept quiet on what people say or do at Powwows/Gatherings;but now i must speak out and have my say.Recently I went to a Powwow in KY and it was a great event.A new Drum came out;a young lady came out as a Fancy Shawl Dancer,both had giveaways just like the western powwows.(yes...

                        by Apache_Fancy_Shawl
                        Hello, was at chamber's farm last night for a so called pow-wow.
                        In my opinion, they needed to call it a white man trying to have a Native American gathering. sevral of the dancers were walking across the circle with food and drinks, just so they didn't have to go around the circle. they had people...

                        by hobbs49
                        It's awful quiet in the Spectator's forum lately so I thought I'd see if we couldn't find something to talk about

                        Back in the mid-1960's, my dad, who was a cop at the time, was in St. Clair, MI for a pistol shooting tournament. While he was there he stumbled across a powwow...

                        Pow Wow Sadness in Phoenix, AZ.
                        by skybird5
                        Am posting this because I'm most disturbed about these happenings at a lovely social pow wow that was in the PHX Metropolitan area on April 28, 2007.

                        Harlan Barehand organized a very nice event for his Family's reunion, at the St. John's school at Gila Crossing. It included gourd dancing,...
