    Do you need to get this done for NOAC?

      I don't feel totally comfortable with your request....Or in posting an answer...

      However....

      First of all.... do you have the "right" to participate in this dance? If not, then you shouldn't just make an outfit and do it. That would be very disrespectful.

      If so, then where are your family or person that gave you the right? They should be the one(s) answering this question.

        Not for NOAC

        Although I am very active in scouting and in the order of the arrow. This is not for noac I used to do fancy dance in the OA compettions but since I am not native I have not been able to compete and I honor Native traditions with all I can. By no means do I do anything that is disrespectful towards the Native people.

        Thank You.

          Hold on, I'll be right back and I'll tell you where to start.


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

                We have this discussion every once in awhile here on Powwows.com and at powwows
                Should a person recieve permission to dress and dance certain styles

                There is two schools of thought on this subject and this applies to other dances that descended from Societies within certain tribes as well.

                If the person is dancing only at powwows which are not traditional dances then it is ok to dance whatever you please
                But another school says no! you should recieve permission from one of the societies first and then dress and pay your way in to do it properly.

                There are very active Straight Dance societies here in Oklahoma within the
                Osage
                Ponca
                Otoe

                So my question to you is this
                Do you want to do this correctly and properly
                Or.....
                Just dress and dance

                There is huge amounts of instruction on the Internet that you can find all kind of info on how to construct Straight Dance clothes we certainly could not forbid you from gathering such information
                But

                Have you ever been to a Man Dance?

                Otoe Elonska


                Get a ticket and go to a dance, they allow spectators and WATCH And LISTEN

                The Dance is not called the Pride of Oklahoma for nothing

                  Anthonybischoff Josiah has provided the answer to your question, of looking for advice on where to start. It is exactly the right answer. I have followed this advice over the past two years and have been amazed at what I have heard and seen. I have been around the Native American powwow culture for many years, but in many ways, I feel like my real understanding, if I can use that word, has begun only since that trip to Osage country to see the Inlonshka and down to Kiowa country to watch them Kiowas gourd dance.

                  Josiah, where were you when I was starting out?
