  • Otoe Heluska

    Does anyone know if they're going to have the Otoe Heluska? It's usually held around Christmas time. I heard they might not be having it, since the whipman passed away this summer.

        The Otoe Eloska is alive and well in Red Rock, OK. Please see Pawtoeman"s response. Mike Kihega has taken over the spot of Drum Keeper since the passing of Vernon Atkins. Hope to see everyone there.

          It went on last year too.
          The only time its too late to start dancing is when you're dead.

              I would love to come out since it is right down the road but I will be working while the dance is going on. I will be thinking of you all. Anyone going to be in White Eagle Sunday?

                Hey pawtoeman, heard some bad things about your dance last weekend. Singing was not good, not many dancers, doing wrong things by just passing things to younger ones, some taildancing that have no right and honoring oleman plumley by his daughter who refused to go to his memorial dance.
                Whats wrong with them people, there loosing the last of there last ceremonial.
                Sorry but lost your phone number and address, thats why i on here.

                    Uppit, sorry that we haven't talked in awhile but with what went on at our dance, i'll talk with you at yours or my home later.
                    I really wasn't mad just dissappointed the way things went. And as for honoring dad, you know yourself what happened there but I will get in touch with you and mail you a new card. You need to get a PHONE, huh?
