  • Life after powwows

    ____

    Powwows are a way of life for some people.

    Some top dancers actually make a living off their contest winnings and travel year 'round.

    But . . . eventually age catches up with EVERYONE.

    Top drums have come . . . and gone.

    Champion dancers have come . . . and gone.

    What is a powwow person to do if they have dedicated their whole life to following the powwow trail and not learned other skills to survive???

    Is there life after powwows?

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

        I've seen some older women sew and bead for other people. I don't really know how they survive, never thought about it but I hope they are warm and comfortable for the Winter Season.

            "She also has a very soft skin. The only trouble with snake women is they copulate with horses, which makes them strange to me. She say's she doesn't. That's why I call her "Doesn't Like Horses". But, of course, she's lying."

                        This is how I am still in the scene, my back is damaged beyond repair so I can't dance or boogie, and I have about 6 others that are together with me. They all have their pains as well and this way we share a stand and take turns watching the tables. We are so tight as a team that sometimes a small signal is all we need to spare someone for a while.
                        Listen to my heart, not just my mouth! The most powerfull thing we can do is,,,share,,, if we don't it dies with us.

                        It is the year of the bear, I am sharpening my claws and will no longer tollerate harrassment.

                          They become politicians and work that scene of womanizing since they already polled all the pow-wow women.

                            It is really sad. . .

                            I know of three ex champion men's fancy dancers that are destined to live on their memories.

                            They now are supported by their spouses/snags, live in Indian housing and take care of their spouses/snags kids.

                            Do you know ex champions with similar stories?
                            Powwows will continue to evolve in many directions. It is inevitable.

                              I'm not even close to a champion dancer so I don't know if it's cool to answer this. Isn't that why there is a golden age category. They still get 3 places and jackets too. One love for all our Indian people from the kids to the golden aged.
