    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.

    Hi

    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.

    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?

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

    November is American Indian and Alaskan Native Heritage Month.

    You can celebrate American Indian heritage year 'round. You don't need Congressional approval.

    by RedHawkeDancing
    O'Siyo. I am a newbie to this posting on pow wow.com. 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"...
