          ThunderBird

          this pow-wow sucked A$# big time. Some of the winners were whack! and no I'm not a dancer, but travel enough to know who is it, and who is just plain whack!~ whack.

            Even though you thought some of the dancers were whack. It looks like most of the dancers that placed are pretty good dancers.

              Adult straight was Denny Medicine Bird, Michael Plumley, Justin Yearby and Henry McClellan. Earl Plumley got 4th in GA men.

              Pow-wow was different, Mc was different but we had a good time anyway!

                  I have always enjoyed going to Thunderbird. It was a 2 day dance, so of course it would seem long because they contest Jrs, Teens and Adults. They also had a few special contests: Friday night Men's and Women's winner take all fancy contests. Then Saturday they had a special Jingle contest. The one thing that I like about Thunderbird is their judging. I get tired of traveling to all of these Oklahoma powwows and they have the same people win from one powwow to the next. POLITICS!!! I have talked with some of the powwow committee members and they have even said that they try to get a mix of people as judges to give dancers a fair chance. Which I think is really good! A couple of years ago I witnessed a few women complaining because they did not place or even make finals to the powwow committee. I hate it when people EXPECT to win because of their name or who they are related to! Makes them look foolish! I myself don't dance to contest and win money, I dance for those who cannot dance and to feel the spirit of the drum.

                  Mr.Littleaxe was the MC-have known him for many years. He has Mc'd a number of dances that I have attended throughout the years. One of the best damn stomp dance leaders I have ever heard.

                  All in all the dance was a good one!

                    Tbird is always fun, sometimes its 3 days, sometimes just 2. I wish it would have been on Sunday this year and I wouldn't have missed yall. xoxoxo!!!!
