  • How much Native American Indian does someone have to be to dance in a powwow?

          Just a smidge more than "I'm native in my heart"

          but thats just my wee opinion....

          oh and Great Gramma's who were Princesses dont count anymore...to far removed......

          Can someone explain why Wasicu's feel they have the right to "remove" people in their families ie. My 2nd Cousin Twice removed...how many times do you have to remove a person til they stay gone...geesh...

            lol.. on the removed part...
            Thankful for the blessing from the Creator in my life!!!!

            Life should not be measured by the number of things that we aquire on our journey but by the number of lives that we touch along that road.

              The SOB's are very persistent! Especially if you owe them money, if it's the other way around, just call them 'seldom seen'

                  Powwows will continue to evolve in many directions. It is inevitable.

                        LMFAO, I've asked probably more people that question than any other question and have yet to get a solid, understandable, answer to it. I guess the answer to the second part of your question would have to be 7 given the expression "Seven degrees of seperation". I have no real idea.

                          Rrr how do you quote someone?

                          Quote from WhoMe,
                          "Which powwow are you talkin about? (Wha chu talkin' 'bout willis?)"

                          Just any I quess. Does it depend on a person's location or tribe?
