  • White Star Gourd dance

    Hello all, I just wanted to let every one know of the fourth annual White Star gourd dance on November 17th. The head singer this year once again is Earl Fenner. There will be gourd dancing in the afternoon and evening followed by a intribal session. There will be a pitch in dinner also with the meat provided by Lou and Chris Bell:D .
    The dance is held in Clearmont Indiana, at the Lionsville building. There is camping avalible. Plus there are hotels and places to eat also.

    Please contact me with any questions, Thanks.........TMS

    Well, I will have come over and say hey to you then ole boy. I was planning on being there anyway and this is just another reason to make it. Drop me an email and let me know how long you are going to be up this way, where your staying and all. Maybe you can stop by for supper some night. Have a safe trip!

            There was a there all about whitestar not to long ago which may still be in the archive. It explained the who and where of this group. Oh yeah most all the members are not native, or at least the ones I know anyway.

              S'all good

              Well.......I had a good time. Good singing and dancing, good grub....just can't knock it. Well attended...about 25 singers and the same number of dancers, plenty of families with the kids playing in the background, moms and dads watching so they don't get too rambunctious. S'all good :D

              Did some visiting (ok, lots of visiting), some singing, a little chair dancing (you know when you aint out there but a song that you really likes is being sang and you just can't sit still). The food was great and plenty of it. Lots of money was collected for a certain gal that is having trouble affording all the meds she needs now and that was a good thing. Shoot...I had a really good time

              Ya missed out SDinAZ...hopefully next time

                ....and a good time was had by all!

                I had a really good time also. Everything thing the bum said is true. Alot of good people having a really good time.
                I posted some photos in the gallery so you can see for your self some that went on. (thought of you straightdancerinaz )

                After the first set there was a dinner........no, a great dinner....scratch that one too......a FANTASTIC FEED!!! Frybread wasn't JUST frybread I would call it more like "indigenous manna"!!:Angel2 :Angel2 :Angel2

                There was one shorter set of gourd dancing, then there was intertribal.
                The only thing I felt was really missing that would have made it a perfect day, was a good Northern Drum!!!!!!!!!!! ( sorry BUM, TMS, CEM and WYAT I'm a nothern girl....what'd 'ya expect????)

                    The weather was perfect, the singing fantastic and the feed was wonderful. Chris did a great job of organizing the feed. If you wasn't there you missed a great day.

                      Enjoyed White Star again this year. Nice folks and good food.
                      Had fun singing.

                      The singing was on, but the dancers acted like they were zombies !!!! Usually when the singing is good the dancers will make all kinda noise and keep the singers pumped up.

                        Hey the dance was really great , the crowd was small but oh well. The food was great, MaMa Bell did a wonderful job with the kitchen. The singing was really good. I had lots of fun out there at the drum. But those dancers need to get excited.

                        When you out there dancing your not out there to dance for your self your there to help create medicine for those people who are sick. So someone tell those white star people to dance with feelings...............TMS

                                Hello all, This is Little White Mouse. I have been dancing as a gourd dancer since 2002 and live in Winnipeg, Manitoba,Canada and would like to know if there are any gourd dance societies in Manitoba/Winnipeg/Canada and who I would contact in order to get involved.

                                A dance I'm attending this weekend in Tennessee will have gourd dancing and one I attended last month in North Carolina had a gourd dancing session. Now, the one in NC was sung by knowledgeable singers who've sung out in OK and know the protocols, and I'm not sure who's singing for Gourd Dance this...

                                I was reading this entry in the encyclopedia and it struck me that there were things in here that I have never heard of!

                                Im just woundering. I know the Gourd Dance is for honoring militay, warriors, and Vets for the most part. I am not an ex-military but a disabled firefighter and medic. I would most desire to be able to gourd dance with our warriors. Would it be appropriate for me to dance with them. I dont want to go...
