    OH boy!! ....fund raising for the Sheka Family Christmas!!!!

    I guess they think that folks have forgotten all the rip off'ing that went on at the last powwow.

    Nearly ALL the raffle ticket items weren't there when it came time to draw for winners. You had to pay if went out to the parking lot and then came back into the powwow.
    The food concession was overpriced and just had the yuckiest food imaginable.

    ....I'll be home or at the casino when this powwow rolls around.

      These are valid issues and concerns that the committee have to address one way or another. Rest assured that I will relay the points presented here in a constructive manner.

        Prairie Island is that same weekend and they always have their money, you don't pay to get in, only thing is the weather is usually snowy. The rooms are high, no camping in December, but the pow wow is jamming!!!!! Then everyone heads to the Mall of America on Monday to hang out and all.
        Good hospitality, and of course the casino is busy, busy, busy!
        I am thankful for my grandparents, my parents, my brothers, my aunties and uncles, my children, my companion and all of those who influenced me to be strong and proud of being who I am and where I come from. Knowledge is power

              I was there Saturday evening. There weren't as many dancers as in the past. But each adult category had more than 3 dancers. Men's tradish Northern and Southern was combined. And so was Women's Cloth/Buckskin Northern/Southern.

              I left before they announced winners.

              But Hey Mr. B.J. I had some curley fries from the concession. They were yummy! Cost seemed reasonable. Can't remember exactally how much.

                  We were at a family dinner in Yahtahey, NM Saturday afternoon, so when that was over, the hubby and I decided to head over to W/R and check it out. So I actually got the opportunity to go. If we didn't have to travel down for the dinner, we would have stayed home.

                  We were wondering where you were. I had a nice time.

                  Crow from Midnite Express was in town and picked up a crew to sing. That was kewl!

                    I know I missed out on something. I had some business to take care of which came up weeks after I had agreed to help my son Matt, but there was no other choice on my part. I know that if you were in the same situation, you would've done the same.

                    Other than that, I will be at the New Year's Eve powwow at Gallup next Friday. Between now and then, I have three holiday season parties on my schedule (all have live bands).

                      Wow! Sounds like some loud gigs. Better not forget your ear plugs.

                            by sltate
                            Remember when Schemitzun was the "be all and end all" of pow wows? When everyone who was anyone and every drum group just had to be present at this celebration? When you saved your cash to buy your ticket, pay for your room at Two Trees, then the Towers, then the Cedars and had to wait for...

                            Which Powwow is a Must See for the Powwow Virgin?
                            by greagirl
                            Yes, I confess it. I am still a virgin...a powwow virgin. I have been heartily assured that should I attend a powwow and hear the drums that my wayward hearty helping of Native blood would rise up and do the brown skin boogie. (Sorry I have not the gadgetry as one person here apparently has to measure...

                            Foxwoods and the true meaning of being First Nations
                            by fallendancer
                            We all know that the foxwoods hold a large powwow every year near their casino. Nevertheless, this powwow is invitation only for singing groups. It is against our ways to exculude people from celebrations. I heard that the foxwoods don't want too many people at their powwow, or do not have the finances...

                            Charging Admission
                            by Lakota Wiyan
                            I'm pretty certain that this topic has been talked to death, but it is an issue that needs to be clarified...and pretty quickly before things get waaay out of hand:

                            Why do the larger powwows charge ALL people except the very young and the elderly, an admission price? Which tribe's tradition...
