    And that's the way it's done!


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

      Since your Family does not want to have anything with the regalia, my suggestion would be to give to another dancer(s) that you do know.

        "I have an 80 yr. young Lakota friend that is in a similar situation. He has no children. He has a brother who is disabled and a nephew that doesn't dance. My friend has several outfits and is hinting that he may give them to me ! So now I'm trying to convince him that he should maybe find a youth group or somewhere to give them to. I can't wear all the stuff I already have. His words were , "I just want to make sure they go to real ndns and I know you'll make sure they do". What do I say to that ? LOL"

        Sometimes we are only the care taker of things until we are told where they go, and it is just that simple...that being said there is always someone that needs outfits or parts to outfits on the trail... and not all of them are greedy... some are are humble and very thankful.. just pay attention and listen to what spirit tells you to do.. the connection between heart and mind usually is a good start. :) good luck with your venture. Be Well and Stay Blessed

          I believe blood quantums are the governments way to breed us out of existance !


          They say blood is thicker than water ! Now maple syrup is thicker than blood , so are pancakes more important than family ?

          There are "Elders" and there are "Olders". Being the second one doesn't make the first one true !

          Somebody is out there somewhere, thinking of you and the impact you made in their life.
          It's not me....I think you're an idiot !

                give em to any spiritual leader among your tribe.....explain that they will know what to do with them.....the creator will help them make that decision......tell them you would like them to hold on to some for some family if they choose to humble themselves for them....but if not they can use them as they wish

                  Eagle Feathers?!?!?!
                  by CHEROSAGE
                  I have just recently returned from a dance in south Texas. I was asked to help out as their AD this year. I was very glad to help out in any way I could. I would do it again if asked.

                  The issue I want to address is this. On Sat. evening I had a duty to tell everyone with Eagle feathers...

                  ___

                  I just opened my big plastic feather box to pick out some feathers for a new fan. As I started going through the different prepared bunches, I noticed that a "critter" has eaten its way through my best feathers.

                  It must have been a connoiseur of feathers,...

                  Trading for Feathers and other regalia items?
                  by contemptradish
                  hi. good topic. this made me think of something. how do people feel about gifting non- natives with eagle feathers? or even, what are the laws along those lines?

                  Not sure where to put this thread but since my niece dances jingle and that's the example I'm going to use, I'll put it here and hopefully other styles of dancers will give their input.
                  How do you feel about little kids carrying eagle feathers???? I was always taught that eagle feathers were...
