    I ask every time when I see a Southeast powwow posted. I usually get the same answer - No.

    The Lumbee powwow put one in and 5 guys competed for one prize of $500. Everytime I ask, the response is - there isn't enough dancers to fill the category. Well geez, 5 guys showed up for the Lumbee powwow for the special. I say, " If you make the category, they will come."

    Any body else think it's worth it to invite some golden age dudes to dance?

    What do they do down there? - Send the old guys out to pasture?

      Kiwehnzii,

      We do have a Golden Age Special at our powwow, we typically get one or two participants. As far as the older people dancing, most adults quit dancing before or shortly after becoming an adult. Just the way it is down here.

          I've only been down here for a few years now. But you know, you're right. There aren't many adult dancers around at least male dancers. I hadn't thought of it before, but it seems to be true now that it's been brought to my attention. Hmmm....

              Yes...sad but true! I've never been able to figure out why so many good dancers down there stop as soon as they're an adult! I've been to many powwows all over and love to watch the Golden Agers dance. I know to many it is a family reunion weekend but dang you can still dance and have just as much fun in the circle as you can in those bleachers!!

                  Yeah, we always have a drum contest. You have to have at least 5 singers. I do not have the places and amounts in front of me at this moment but it is a good contest.

                    If I don't have to work that weekend, I will probably come. More than likely, I'll ride my bike down with my bike group. Always up for a road trip.
                    Through the good times and bad times, always pray.

                      Coming Down

                      I probably will be bringing a group down from Northern Virginia. (Harley Owners Group Ride) For many this will be their first Pow Wow. I would appreciate any information anyone can give me on this event. I for one would love to sleep under the stars but I don't think with this group that is the way to go. Lodging information would be especially appreciated. Please email me direct [email protected].
