    POWWOWS are FUN

    Which Powwow is the most informative, the most reflective on Native culture and its tenets….

    Thank you in advance for you kind cooperation.





    I chose this part of your quote, because the question itself is un-original, meaning (not in a derrogatory way) >>you are not the first person to ask this question and you will more than likely not be the last. But know that Native American culture is not vague, and is specific to each indigenous group throughout the Americas, so it would be difficult to find one powwow that exhibits all Indigenous american cultures.

    I saw this thread, read what others have written here, and think that if you are new to the powwow-going experience, you would ask which powwow is the most informative about Native culture........ you would ask this because you have little knowledge about Indigenous Americans? I dont know, but the point im trying to make (yes im getting there) is depending on the tribe (in some cases more than one, but normally all from the same region) the powwow is region sensitive, only offering a variety when it comes to the dancing and singing itself and "Northern and Southern" ( the most common of dance and singing competition) is not really including all regions of the Americas and is not much of a variety.

    Therefore I suggest a powwow that is sensitive to every region of the Americas, north south east and west. and that powwow is Schemitzen. There is not one region of the Americas left out there. You will see Indigenous people from all regions of the Americas there, and if their style of dance is not represented with a competition then they are there performing exhibitions. In recent years there has a been a push to emphasize the Indigenous American people of that region, (Eastern region) perhaps because there are few other powwows throughout the country that do so. But if it is Native American Culture as a whole that you seek to see at any one powwow, i would attend Schemitzun.

    Also, (almost finished here) you will see all Indigenous American representation, Tainos (a tribe from puerto Rico), Mayans from south america, and Eskimos from ....... well you know.

    that having been said....... happy powwow-
    going!!!

    As for the running into me....if it's meant to happen, there will be nothing you can do to stop it. Just make sure you have medical insurance and hopefully are wearing long pants.

    As for up North, only when it's warm. (grin) Perhaps a time or two when it's really cold for the novelty.

    It snowed winter before last in Dallas. While it was pretty and magical and all the day it fell, the sh*t would not go away! Then my car actually froze shut! What kind of a twisted thing is that?! Fortunately for budding America's Funniest Home Video filmographers, I didn't realize it at first or the proper procedure for moving beyond it. Of course foul mouthed hilarity ensued as I tried to get into my car, watered the ice to get in and well, the door almost instantly froze shut... with me inside. (laugh)

    Confused as to why people live in cold climates voluntarily....

    Grea.

    I agree girl cold weather sucks and a bit scary. I visited Memphis tenn. and everything had ice cycles hanging from the cold. It was 13 degrees, not use to no colder that 55 degrees. I was staying a hotel and the window had ice on them I was scared the lights were gonna go out. My truck had ice cycles all over and the brakes froze. I am from the south In louisiana I like the sun and to keep my tan. Oklahoma has great powwow red earth, Andarko, new mexico and Texas has some great powwows just have to look on the calendar and plan to go to one. Are u wannting to dance and dress? what tribal aff are u? Seamonkey cult leader? Really confused? sounds demmonic to me.

    would love to go to all those, the only one i have been to is surprise....Hinkley, although i do like Mille Lacs better as it is smaller, same people been going there for years and mostly my tribe is there. Hinkley is bigger, and prolly more fun for people coming in from elsewhere. they are both my annual powwows so i guess i am lucky. lol

    There is always National Powwow 2007

    Grea -

    According to the last email I traded with Leonda Levchuk the next National Powwow will take place in 2007 with the "location TBD."

    powwows.com poll rated the National the 3rd best powwow in 2005 and it -was- an awesome contest powwow. Of course, living just outside of DC it was also conveniently close for me. I'm hoping they will have the next one in DC but since NMAI does have an extension in New York City as well it is vaguely possible next year's could be held out of the DC area.

    At any rate, something to keep in mind if your list is for -next- year.

    Virtues Abound

    I always thought that virginity was one of the marks of the virtuous. (laugh) I don't know if I want to venture too far this year. I've been traveling quite a lot this year and still I'm supposed to be taking trips to Hawaii and Orlando this summer. I also want to take a trip somewhere in December as well. No where cold of course....

    That being said, it will probably be next year before I plan a trip around an out of state powie wowie. But I am collecting this information and will keep it in mind for next year.

    Warming the world with the heat of my halo.

    Grea.

    Hey the Alabama Coushatta have a pretty decent powwow. But if you are wanting to get a "big bang" from your first experience. Then check out Red Earth in Oklahoma City the first weekend in July (I think) There is probably info on the powwow Calendar page. It's indoor, air conditioned, and that's the powwow when you will see more than just the Okies. They usually have some decent drum groups from all over the U.S. + the best of Oklahoma. (southern style).

    Don't be disappointed if your "wayward hearty helping of Native blood" doesn't rise up. At least you won't be a virgin any more.

    Powwow Paper
    by SkarpHedin
    I volunteered to help at a powwow in Hattiesburg, Mississippi this weekend, and I was fascinated with the whole event. I am going to write a paper about it for my World Music class, and I was wondering if someone who knows about powwows could answer a few questions that I have. Anyone who does answer...
