  • Ask Iowa Boy: Fans?

    Received this question via my fax line, didn't know anyone still used faxes anymore, I use my old machine to hide the hole in the wall from that Wolverine attack last fall.

    Anyway......


    Dear Iowa Guy,

    What do you think about fancy dancers who dance with fans?

    Dear Hottie,

    Fans were a part of the fancy outfits in the past, but not so much anymore today. I'll use one during grand entry on really hot days, or during intertribals, but not during contests. I keep it in my suitcases and it goes with me each weekend.

      Hey IB,
      I also thought that 103 & 109 are the same person......... I also think that they are after your puddin, add 109 & 103 you get 212, almost the 240 for your puddin.

        Clearly hoper they are two different peoples. 109 is not the same as 103. There are 6 degrees of seperation between the twos of them.

        Iowa boy, in your opinyun why the decline in dancing with fans?

          I thought Big Iron Chef and Sir Mixalot were the same too.

            No, "simply an adverse reaction" is what somebody called me... whatever that mean. Anyhoo, any thoughts on the reasons for the decline of "fast and fancy feather war dancers" using fans?

              dance sticks have simply replaced them, they add movement, extend the movements of the arms outward, further embellishing human movement. To stand out, to be noticed while dancing, exagerated movements are necessary to some degree and dance sticks provide that, while fans do not.

              We should note that there are still a few dancers who go without hand objects during contests, there are a few left.

                Iowa_Boy, you didn't describe your fan in the suitcase. Why am I getting this vision of a Geisha Girl fan in your suitcase?


                Why must I feel like that..why must I chase the cat?

                  Now, now, now, don;t talk like that, that will get your post deleted! I've got a wing and a tail, but the tail fan is smaller and is in the suitcase right now.

                    JD,
                    The VISION you are getting actually comes from the blow-up doll he keeps in the case. It is actually a geisha girl.

                      So I post the phrase "I never thought this would happen to me" and my post gets deleted along with Ree's. Lostsalt posts "blowup doll" and that's okay? What about people posting whether or not to kill witches or wizards in the fancy shawl forum? What's going on around this place?

                        If you happened to read a few of the witch guys posts, you will see that he "is" being deleted. As he says, Powwow.com is deleting my posts and something or other about its because they are scared of the truth.
                        Iowaboy I cant imagine anything you write being removed, 'less it had something or other to do with boy scouts lol.

                        Back to fans, so if a judge saw a dancer break out a fan for a "old style fancy dance special" might that fan give a little edge to the dancer (especially since most people dont dance any different during these specials lol).

                                prayer fan for dancing?

                                We have a "prayer fan" that we purchased from a gallery that is simple and would be an excellent size for our grand-daughter to use while tradish dancing. My wife says it dont make a difference since it was bought retail! I think I agree, but my OCD forces me to ask

                                I don't know if this is the right forum for this but none of the others seemed to fit. I am a vetran and have been to combat at least once. I have great pride in my uniform and what it means to the nation as well as to my life. My question is about using parts of my Army uniform in an outfit. I know...
