      Yes. The ghost dance is still done by one tribe annually.

      November is American Indian and Alaskan Native Heritage Month.

        Powwows will continue to evolve in many directions. It is inevitable.

            In Canada, we have Aboriginal Day celebrated on June 21. The government departments also have Aboriginal Awareness Weeks throughout the year.

            Many First Nations up here have a celebration on their treaty day.

            However, as said above, we don't need the government to set aside a day, week or month to tell us how to be us...I get to be NDN 365 days a year for my whole life... how cool is that?

              I didn't know there was a month to celebrate Native American heritage. I am glad to know that it is November and will acknowledge it.

                  That was in the late 1800 almost close to the turn of the century (1900). You were thinking about the Ghost Dance back then. Well, it was not successful and a failure. Many natives who were trying to be the Ghosts were killed by the military soldiers. So the Ghost Dance is ban forever.

                  I am from Canada and we celebrated Aboriginal Day on June 21 every year. Just like Yaahl said.

                  Maybe some dancers with regalia might have white faces cover to remember their ancestors. But not definitely Ghost Dance. I don't know.

                    Is there such a dance called the "Ghost dance"?
                    If so, what is the story behind the dance?

                    Cheyenne Rain Dance?
                    by Bodean
                    Can anyone tell me if the rain dance is part of the Cheyenne tradition?

                    I'm writing a short story about a little boy. In honor of my father-in-law, I intend to cast the hero as a Cheyenne boy. However, the story involves a rain dance. My father-in-law has passed and has no living relatives...

                    O'Siyo. I am a newbie to this posting on pow I have a couple of questions, if I may ask.

                    One is this. When I dance, I do not dance in regalia like I see at pow wows, or like any of the dancers I see. I dance mostly in a trance like state or I Totem dance. Is there a "name"...
