            Josi,

            The gathering gourd dance is it's own sort of beast. Hats, no sleeves, shorts, sandles, t-shirts, grass, fancy, traditional and straight dancers. Lot's of things make you go HMMMMMMMM???? *L

            The ADs have been there for many years and place the blanket in the same place year-after-year. There is a steady line of people putting money on the drum for the singers.

            If someone does not immediately count the money from the drum and distribute it, chances are, the singers don't get their fair share.

            Each time I counted the money there, I made sure everyone got an equal share, but I didn't get to sing. I just counted money at the drum for the whole session and made sure it was distributed fairly by the time the session ended. For each session all the malessingers made over $20 and the seated females made over $15.

            But it all depends on who's handling the drum in any particular year.
            Powwows will continue to evolve in many directions. It is inevitable.

              Its just that when you come back from the Fourth Reenergized and having danced the way its meant to be danced for 3 days listening to the songs
              You just shake your head when you see those videos

              Going to the Fourth makes my summer every year!

                So Who, the Gathering gourd session is more or less a "anything goes" type of dance? I'm with Josiah, really goes against the way I was taught.

                  stream,

                  The closer you are to where something originated, the more you will find something closer to it's purist form.

                  Likewise, the farther you get away from where something originated, the opposite will occur.

                  It can also be compared to "is the glass half full, or half empty." If you are looking for infractions in gourd dancing, you'll find them. If you are just wanting to gourd dance or listen to gourd dance music, then you'll find it.

                    I hear ya Who, understood. Guess I'm glad I'm closer to the point of origin than not.
