    Yeppers, Natives wall to wall. Saturday night session is usually packed so find a seat during Gourd. Hard seating- think that's why natives supposedly have no butt? Bring Looking glass (binoculars) to scope out possible snags. So wear your sunday best on saturday.
    Didn't go last couple of years, planning on attending this overly hyped shindig. Just to see who gets the gate.

      The best part of this powwow is all the "brown-ness".

      The worst part? You'll read it here. Who got shafted, etc.

        OK then...the positives +++++++

        Albuquerque-nice city, good weather, good southwestern food, full of culture, both Native American and Hispanic. Colorful city, proud of its heritage. Unique architecture reflects this culture.

        Santa Fe, nearby, if you have time, check out this beautiful city.

        Pueblos-if you have time, check them out, beautiful villages, artwork and food to share. Hospitality abounds.

        Albuquerque, not too much traffic, (until you get near the Pit), plenty of hotels and accomodations.

        The powwow-exciting, always a show in between the contesting, never a dull moment. Wall-to-wall dancers, beautiful, colorful regalia reflecting Native stylez, entering into the pit from 4 directions. Good singing, good contesting, good participation from the crowds, cheering and applauding. Everyone in anticipation of a good, memorable powwow.

        Gatheirng of Nations-an experience, not to be forgotten.

        You gotta do it at least once.

                        Best advice is to buy your tickets online or ahead of time at least. here's another:

                        Don't Dance competively
                        Don't Sing competively

                        That way you can get up and leave at anytime and enjoy the pow-wow and hit the parties, cause GON won't get over til late. There will be plenty of peeps ready to join ya and then all the dancers/singers will be in envy of ya.

                        hoot...hootcha

                          Buckskin Pantyhose-I really adore your avatar? Cute.

                          GON-is loads of fun if you make it fun. I look forward to buying cd's here every year and meet new people. THe only thing is how crowded the upper level gets, but that's all expected of that powwow. I just want to see which back-up singers take it this year. Expect to see about 10,000 natives in one spot and don't forget the stadium chair, you'll need it.
                          Fall down 7 times, get up 8. MY FAMOUS WORDS.
