  • Should Dancers Be Required to Show CDIB Card?





    Perhaps I should have been more pacific.
    AS FAR AS CONTESTS GO AT POWWOWS, DO YOU THINK DANCERS SHOULD HAVE TO SHOW THEIR CDIB CARD?

    I have heard a couple of people say they were told they needed to show their card because they didn't "look" Indian. That's crazy and just plain rude. I've never had that happen to me. But maybe they were just being picked on for some reason. But at Denver March Powwow don't they do the same?

      That's unfair!

      My great great grandmother was an Indian Taco eating princess, but I can't prove it.

                Denver March says you have to be 1/4 NDN to contest. I've never been there so I don't know if they card everybody or just those they have questions about.

                I've never been carded at a powwow before and I don't think they should.

                  Isn't that the case at Gathering too?
                  Because of our treaty status, the distinction of being 'Cherokee' is a status of citizenship, not a racial issue.

                        Now, let's get serious, to be called "Indian Taco", do they have to have little CDTB cards?

                          If you got, you shouldn't worry about having to show them. If you DONT have them, I guess you shouldnt worry about it either. Just dont contest there, and dont go to that powwow if you dont like their policy. Sheesh, cant we have just one itty bitty teeny tiny thing for ourselves? Dont we share enough? Gaaaaaah...*eye roll*

                          lol <<<<for all the denser folks, this was sarcastic>>>>

                              What about state recognized tribes? Some don't have tribal cards?

                              I have a CDIB but I don't carry it. I'm sure there are others too?

                              I have two little friends that are full bloods but of 8 tribes. They don't qualify for a CDIB.
