  • honor cali tribes at cali pow wows

    yo what up with the pow wow orginizors not inviting or having cali tribes at the pow wows. It was cool at oroville cause the pomo were invited. I would be good for other tribes to see cali indians way but hardly no pow wow here in cali even do that. Were still here man and the orginizors need to honor the first people of cali.
    So broke I'm thinking of pawning my gold toof!

        Here in Southern California, most of the small weekend powwows do honor the local tribes. They're able to perform their respective bear dances and other honor dances. And, I am also one who is tired of seeing the Aztec dancers, I'm always bumping into them at Olvera Street in downtown Los Angeles everyday. But if the Aztec dancers want to mimic the plains tribes then why not. It seems that ebonics mimicry is prevalant here in powwows.com so if we can talk and write like the African Americans then anybody should be able to dance and look like Native Americans.

          good point, there does seem to be more Aztec danceing than Cali native dancing at PW here in Nor CAl.

One of these dayz your gona have to tell us how you got your name cause, it sounds like a pornstar name:Naughty Ok , now about the topic, just about all casino tribes honor us and sponcer contests for us. On the other hand at the college pw's , UCLA and Long Beach do a lil but not much. There still seem's to be a bit of pregidice out there still. There's this lady out here that has even been asked to leave because of her behavior. She claim's to be Tonga , but nobody claims her. It's her behavior that even embarrase's me. She's rude ,she dance's her tradish style in the arena but has no regard for other dancers. She just about nearly knocks into people.

                      Hello Wallflower, I hope that my crazy posts have made you more brazen then before and it seems to be working. Your humor is coming along just fine. I work for a trucking company called Quick Silver Express here in Montebello, CA and hence, quicksilverwade came into being. I hope it doesn't offend anybody because I was never into the adult industry :Angel:

                          WallFlower, I'm in trouble now. My wife refuses to speak to me now. My children won't come home from school. My sisters won't give me 50% of their contest winnings. My life is in a shambles.:wall:

                              In my opinion, California, although we are the state with the largest Native population with over 300,000, the majority are not from the California tribal communities. Many are relations from the Relocation Program of 1952 and bringing and sharing the pw way of life.

                              I'm sure you know this already, but in the eyes of US government, some 80 tribes with more than 70,000 California Indians are considered "non-Indians", even though our ancestors roamed California centuries and centuries before the non-Indians arrived. Currently, California has 36 tribes, mind you more than any other state, struggling and fighting for federal recognition, an incredibly slow, costly and very often a futile process for all involved. (Currently, one of my tribes is struggling with this process).

                              Then we have the issue of tribal identity, who decides who is going to be accepted into the tribe. Who'se "more" Indian? Does going to pws make a person more Indian? Does living on the rez/rancheria make one tribal member more Indian? Some bands of certain tribes are federally recognized, but another band in the SAME tribe is not....does this make them more Indian? What of the 104 recognized tribes not enrolling any new members because they fear it will mean less federal Indian dollars to go around?

                              I guess what I'm trying to say is, there are handfuls of California Indians but many are secretive in sharing the traditions with 'outsiders', or we do share but only for 'invited guests', or in many cases there's a large group that are Indian by blood but so lost in today's society of "what their Indian identity" is, that all they really have is the pw way of life.

                              Then you have many who've even been adopted and are learning on their own initiative of "who they may be" and until one can reunite with their birth families, pws are sometimes the only connection. Some are fortunate and blessed to find their families and hopefully learn their traditions and the like, but sadly, many won't.

                              Sure, I'd like to see more California dances, songs, and even games being shared at the pws, but many times the committees are reluctant to 'change' things. I think this is why "Big Times" work so well for the CA tribes...;)

                                Traditional vs. Competition?
                                by Woodlands Daughter
                                Growing up I attended pow wows often, but they were only traditional pow wows.
                                I have started to attend them more often as an adult and last fall I went to a competition pow wow. I was not able to stay as long as I would have liked, but I was wondering about what a contest pow wow was like....

                                I've been traveling and photographing pow wows off and on for several years
                                So of course if I did not enjoy and respect the culture as well as the ceremonies the dancing etc I wouldn't be doing it. However it seems like more and more pow wows take place in arena's and gyms and even parking lots....

                                Is Straight Dancing Pan-Tribal?

                                The Straight Dancing forum has been a little dead here lately, so I though I would try to liven it up a bit by making some observations and asking some questions. I certainly don’t intend any disrespect, so please don’t take anything I post in that
