  • Pow Wow Urban Legends

    WhoMe’s thread on the 365 jingle cones got me to thinking about other pow wow “urban legends”. Some of the following are factual…others???

    Did you ever hear about the pow wow in Indiana that was busted by the Fish and Wildlife Department and everyone was fined $2,000 for their feathers (even the Indians with their Eagle Feather Permits)?

    Did you hear about the pow wow down in Florida where they spread a man’s ashes in the dance arena?

    Do you remember the fancy dancer who put razor blades in his whip sticks and would cut up fellow contestant’s bustles during a contest?

    Did you hear about the pow wow in Navajoland where they actually paid the prize money?

    Do you remember the men’s traditional dancer who used over 150 black and whites in his bustle?

    Did you hear about the guy who beaded his entire outfit in thread he got from a dentist for free only later to find out it was the kind that disintegrates in the mouth after a few days? Well, he was out dancing and a very light drizzle came up and all his threads disintegrated before everyone’s eyes and he was left standing there beadless wearing only canvas…
    I think everyone on this rez is addicted to Harry Potter...lol...

        Did you hear about the traditional dancer that used 10 eagles to make his outfit?

        Did you hear abou the judge that acutally pulled out due to a relative being in the contest?
        It is so sad that a family can torn apart by something as simple as a wild pack of dogs.

                I remember that one time I made to the pow-wow on time with no car problems. No one believed me.

                  Did you hear about the gourd dancer in Florida who built a shaker more than 5 feet in length and used it during a dance?

                  Did you hear about that one 49 in Montana where no one went to jail?

                  Did you hear about the hoop dancer that uses 156 hoops?

                    Preposterous

                    Ever heard about the 7'3" fancy dancer that took first all the time in the nortern states.
                    Ever hear bout the guy that was escourted off the arena because his outfit was soo close to being the original.
                    Ever heard of the fancy dancer that did a complete back flip while contesting.
                    Or the powwow that had giveaways and specials two whole days in a row in a three day powwow.
                    Maybe the one where the tradish guy had a buffalo head and hide as part of his outfit.
                    Ever heard of dancers and singers and even spectators getting feed at a powwow in the 22nd century.

                            Did you hear about the ballerina dancer turned jingle dress/fancy shawl dancer?

                            Did you hear about the drum group that took professional singing lessons before Schemitzun.
