                Yeah the humidity's pretty bad over there but the powwow will be in the MCI Center, nice and air conditioned

                You should go anyway, would be cool to meet you. .

                    I just got the email flyer yesterday, sooo, damn it sure looks good, hmm, first annuals are always tricky though huh?
                    But I imagine the money is there and a crowd will be there for sure so it makes me wonder if I should sling some real good old fashion Traditional Frybread at the crowds there and clean up with a few grand or so, hmmm. I may go, still got friends, family and a landlord in Arlington, VA. hmm. *L*

                    I really wanna go especially since I missed the grand opening of the museum.

                    It's gonna be wicked.

                          YUP! YUP! YUP! In our own "backyard"!....I cant wait for this one...the line up is incredible, the money is rediculous & the vibe is gonna be outta control!! The MCI Center is a really nice facility...HUGE, a great way to bring all the natives back to DC!

                          Anyone come out for the powwow on the national mall a few years ago? I think this one will definitely top that!

                              I was at that Mall powwow, it was awesome but yeah it was hot muggy and dusty. The first powwow was cool except for one grand entry they had the women traditional dance in behind the fancy dancers....... Holey that dust was horrible!!!

                              Really sad about the elder too and glad they moved it into the MCI Center.
