          never been asked that before - If you are in complete fancy feather dance gear - and are registered to dance - I would guess so

          but this is in honor of my sons dad who was a mens fancy feather dancer....
          i cannot say yeah or nor, will ask him and his uncles about this
          Well will wonders never cease.....

                    I had a good time at this powwow, and the singing was good overall. One of the drums had troubles all weekend with rushing their honor beats and singing onbeat, but I won't embarrass them here. I had a great time dancing, visiting, and listening to some nice songs.

                    The French Family put on a wonderful special, and thanks for asking me to be a part of it by helping to judge.

                    I hate that this pow wow charges admission, doesn't feed, has no committee giveaway, and is overall a money-grubbing event, but I still had fun. LOL
                    I think everyone on this rez is addicted to Harry

                      My 2 cents worth

                      Bostic: Ron would be so proud of the great job you did. Judy and I both noticed that.

                      Committee...Can we PLEASE dance on real earth and not that concrete, it kills your feet. It would be nice to feed the dancers and drummers, some travel many miles to get there.

                      I admitt, I was suprised the committee didint do a memorial song for Ron being that he work at that powwow as long as I can remember.

                      The straight dancers were the best I've seen in a long time.
                      That song was off the chain. Who song that first song for them? Great job!

                        i thought the judging was a little biased, shoulda had more of a variety than just people from the same place and that those same people judged both days and that teens were judging adults when there was enuff adults around to judge, also most communities dont allow there own people from the home town to contest but hey politics always play a role anymore in powwows in general, otherwise i had a good time.

                          This may be one reason that people stay away. It's okay tho'.
                          The same people can really enjoy each others company and can look forward to having the same great time as they did the previous year. It's all good.
