  • Red Earth 2010 !

    Who's going to Red Earth? Are you contesting or just going to watch?

    I'll be in the parade Friday Morning. But a little while after that I'll be leaving going to another powwow.

    O-si-yo do-hi-ju....(I think that's right from what I remember)
    I am not going this year. I will be going to Livingston. It was a tough decision though. Have fun, be safe.

      Good news....Red Earth is not the same weekend as Livingston this year. Red Earth is not for another 2 weeks.

      Sadly enough, there is a definate possibility that it will not be webcasted this year. So if anyone reads this and wants to give a shout to the committee, it might help get us there. Time is ticking, tho.

        Sorry Stacy RE just keeps going in one direction

        no $ for categories/dancers
        (no Jr & Sr Adult age splits.1 buckskin (n&s) 1 cloth (n&s)
        2 MC's ?
        3 AD's ???
        2 host drums
        3 invited drums (do they get ? travel $ rooms?)
        a drum contest that seems to be a self funded (by the singers themselves)Ponzi

        If we don"t fundraise prior and aren"t good at it, then lets just have a good Southern Pow wow. Get new or more people on the planning committee.
        Do i think anyone planning this powwow even looks at powwows.com to read this NO. This is my opinion, I remember when RED EARTH WAS SOMETHING!

            VERY TRUE...I do remember when Red Earth was SOMETHING!! I remember the parade being so big and all the dancers...Now there is just about a handful of dancers...I remember the arena looking like a smaller version of Gathering....I did say SMALLER...LOL..i remember the big crowds that packed the myriad EVERY DAY to come out and watch (myriad, now the Cox center) Man those were the days!!!! What happened??

              and if you ask him why he'll say......
              Cuz I am ERICK and I say that the only
              thing important is the ART today!!


              This guy has no clue on what a powwow is or what it means to so many people. He should not be in charge of anything but the ART. Erick needs to understand this fact and step aside to allow someone knowledgeable to run the powwow.

                LOL...Darn that Erick

                I totally agree...these two things have nothing to do with each other. Its obvious that putting all time and funds into the art is not drawing a crowd or at least not like it use to. Don't get me wrong the art and other stands are very much an important part of a good powwow...My uncles have boothes set up each year at Red Earth and my grandfather has been an honored one is years past, but isnt the bigger picture that draws everyone the dance...the actual powwow! I remember they use to have specials...dancers from all over showcasing there dances...spot light dances...champions of champions dance offs...WTH...Bring it back...the people have spoken...who do we need to write!! That is why alot of dancers/drummers dont come out any more...its pretty much a bust! So I think you're right...Erick step aside my brother and let someone save the dance portion of the powwow...arts and eats are great, but what is the real reason folks go to a powwow...i can't remember the last time i really really wanted to attend or go to a powwow just because of the "ART" that was going to be there....LOL...Im just saying!!

                      Hmmm, I'm going to Red Earth because I got free airline tickets. I'm missing a Rick Ross/Fabulous concert to go to Oklahoma, so I hope I made the right decision!

                            Ah, RED EARTH 2010-Feeling Dissappointed now :{

                            My husband and I were just talking about attending the Red Earth, here in OKC, OK area, but after reading all the sadness, wondering if it would be worth going at all.

                            We have never attended, we are seniors and parking the car so far away from any downtown event, makes it harder on us walking so far.

                            Is there a schedule? We were thinking of going on Friday, less crowds for us.

                            I agree with others, that food and booths are great, but it is the DANCERS, with their great "spirit", that we come to see. No matter how many Pow Wow's we have attended over the last 6 yrs, we never tire of viewing the dancers, and the beautiful attire (sorry I got knocked down for calling them 'costumes')? with all the gorgeous, unique, detailed bead work, originality, glitter, colors, and the great dancing techniques that each individual performs. We love it, and feel blessed that we are still able to go and be blessed by all of it.

                            Perhaps this person, Erick, could be removed if enough sent mail?
                            We would sure hate to see Red Earth deleted due to the wrong people doing less than a great job!? THANK YOU for sharing, God Bless, Helene

                              ok, but not packed

                              So, seems like there's a lot od disappointment here 'eh?
                              Yeah well..... it wasn't packed and I thought there would be more people at the parade. This one drum group was very disrespectful to some of the women dancers.

                                I am saddened deeply to announce that Jim Anquoe Sr (ma cohn) has disassociated himself from the Red Earth Powwow Committee. It's quite ridiculous the extent of some people's need to acquire self-recognition on this level, to ruin a good thing like this annual dance. As far as I know, it's still on....

                                For all you folks that like to watch Red Earth via webcast I thought you all might be able to help with something. Some things have changed with the committee this year and it's up in the air if they are gonna have us out to do the webcast.

                                It's usually the most watched webcast...

                                by powwowngirl
                                What's your thoughts on Red Earth? How has it changed over the 20 years its been goin on? I heard someone say that they didin't like it since it didn't give any money back to NDN community. Do any of the big ones? What about Gathering of the Nations? Do they give back to NDN community? :confus...
