  • PowWow First Timer : what can do and not do?

    hi guys,

    i'm attending my first powwow in the end of august at the 2017 Shakopee Powwow in Minesota. I'm half native from my father's side but never got the opportunity to attend events like those, and i was wondering if you guys knew what kind of things I'll be able/not able to do not being enrolled in a tribe (not myself, parents were).

    thanks and if you have any tips for first powwow i won't say no!

    thanks a lot

    On the right side of the page, you will see a section called Quick Links. Under there is a sub section called Resources for 1st Pow Wow Visitors. It's a good place to start.
    Take nothing for granted. Life can change irrevocably in a heartbeat.

    I will not feed the troll-well, I will try.

          I noticed you're making regalia. Do you plan to dance at your first powwow?

              I tell people that if you go to three pow wows you will figure out what it is about.

                Really?

                Explain what 'powwows are all about'.


                Why must I feel like that..why must I chase the cat?

                  You put your left leg in , you take your left leg out , you put your left leg in and you shake it all about ! See , I know !
                  I believe blood quantums are the governments way to breed us out of existance !


                  They say blood is thicker than water ! Now maple syrup is thicker than blood , so are pancakes more important than family ?

                  There are "Elders" and there are "Olders". Being the second one doesn't make the first one true !

                  Somebody is out there somewhere, thinking of you and the impact you made in their life.
                  It's not me....I think you're an idiot !

                  There's a chance you might not like me ,

                  but there's a bigger

                  chance I won't care

                    I know what it is about goodness&#128513 hard work, spirituality, love, gifting, honoring, learning not to interrupt or talk over others, learning not to point with your finger, socializing, using something from the vendors, donating to the drums, dancing to maneto with thankfulness, encouraging others.

                          Which Powwow is a Must See for the Powwow Virgin?
                          by greagirl
                          Yes, I confess it. I am still a virgin...a powwow virgin. I have been heartily assured that should I attend a powwow and hear the drums that my wayward hearty helping of Native blood would rise up and do the brown skin boogie. (Sorry I have not the gadgetry as one person here apparently has to measure...
