      Gourd dancing is a ceremonial dance.

      Gourd dancing IS NOT a dance exclusively for veterans.

      Women should never handle a gourd during the gourd dance.
      Powwows will continue to evolve in many directions. It is inevitable.

        Today I see two different types of gourd dancing which isn't suppose to be...

        The Kiowa gourd clan-yes ceremonial..

        Then we have the pow-wow gourd dance nothing like the Kiowa Gourd clan is doing.

        I feel these types of people mainly super hobs and wannabe's adopt the groud dance for themselves and is making a mockery of the real Kiowa Gourd clan.......

        So if your asking for your own personal information that is okay....

        from what I understand they don't expect you to go and run a gourd dance at a pow-wow without a Kiowa Gourd Clan member being present opinion and I'm sticking to it lol and if I'm wrong I'm sure somebody will let me know (smiles)
