    I love learning from Sunbear, Whitebird and Blackthunder.

    Dude, when you first read that I was thinking this thread should be in the 49.

    Sorry you don't agree with me, and i am very disappointed to hear that you think i am trying to adopt others' traditions. I am not, i have never encountered this situation and i was asking opinions, not adopting traditions. Maybe i was curious about other people tradtions? Think of that?

    A year of no dancing

    i guess it would be entirely up to YOU if and WHEN you return to the circle. i've had people i know that when a family member passed away they TOLD them to not to stay away from dancing because they liked the way they danced. it is totally your decision - not every tribes beliefs are the same.....

    braids

    You have cut your hair due to a passing. This good and right. It is also a custom to not dance for one year.

    aahhh...the fakey braid solution...dependin on the length of your hair - works well with a shoulder length bob - you put your hair in two low pony tails. then take some cloth - broadcloth works well - the length your want your "new" braids and maybe about 6 - 8 inches wide. wrap the cloth around your short ponytails with elastics. then wrap your "fakey" braids with bias tape or leather tightly and spaced very close together. you will probably have to use some small barrettes at the top of your braids to "cover" the tops and stay away from small children or large people who like to pull braids. i've had friends, neices and sisters that have used this method - you cant tell the difference....

    sorry bout your family member...welcome back into the circle...

    Short hair and dancing...

    Hello all... I have a question and would like some advice.

    There was recently a death in the family and i cut my hair pretty short. I was wondering if it was ok for me do dance at powwows and competitions... I have never came to this before, i have always had longer hair.

    Thanks

    by Mato Winyan
    Do you have your hair trimmed at all? If so you do it yourself? Go to a professional? Do you it on a full moon?... new moon? Or do you leave your long lovely locks alone?
