                      This was a very good pw. The only thing is, I didn't see any pw shirts for it. I left before the winners were announced too. The chicken dance specials were excellent.

                      We couldn't find the place when we first got there. We followed that map on the calender page w/ the feather. We were right in the middle of auburn. I started thinking, these white people are very nice to have the pw right in the middle of town. Then we asked for directions and found out it's down the road about 10-15 miles. I got a good laugh out of that one.

                      Half of nevada was on fire when we drove thru.

                        I think that Manuel Mount won the Chicken Dance Special!
                        Headed out early, loaded up on fireworks from the boomtown!

                        They did this weird thing were they had fancy shawl dancers leading in the chicken dancers at the start of each round of the chicken dance special??? What the.......?

                        ...that's so, so true...

                            Bigfoot Thunderchild and Tiny Ballenger are two names I hadn't heard for quite awhile. I'm glad to see both are still alive and well in the powwow world! Both are excellent singers!

                            How did they do?

                            I heard Wild Rose did an excellent job at the Ft. Duschene Ute powwow this past weekend. They came with a full crew and rocked!

                            I have never heard them, but now I am really interested!
                            Powwows will continue to evolve in many directions. It is inevitable.
