    Wade, who is that pic of? Horace Goodhue?????
    I don't remember what I Yahoo image seached under. It was probably under Woodlands dancer. But I did find Horace Goodhue. Check him out.

Center seam leggins and mocs, bandolier bag, long broadcloth shirt, cross sashes, a turban style head cover with a hawk feather roach, etc.

      Uh oh Quick Silver. . .

        Okay Seesfar,
        How far can you see into the future and the past? Do you sense danger and mayhem? May I suggest that you change your wicked ways, lol.

                Where did you ever get the idea that I could see forward or backward? It seems to me that you can't see any farther than your conceited nose. And for your information, I don't think I have any wicked ways. I don't drink or smoke and I thank the Creator for every day that I open my eyes. And what could you possibly know about a Shape Shifter? Unless that pic above your Nic is you for real. I think I could find a better pic than an ugly white guy!!!! Anyways, I'm through with this idiotic conversation with a wannabe know it all! And by the way.... If you do know anything, I still have the Tootsieroll Pop that Uncle Frank Bush gave me at the AIC Pow Wow in Lebanon, Indiana. Peace ya all!

                      lol

                      I love it. I pretty much leave for a year, and not much has changed.

                      This is coming from a white guy who lives in the midwest, so take it or leave it. I am sure people will have plenty of comments.

                      80% of the powwows around here are wannabee/ hobbyists. Over the years, I became friends with several people, ndn and non. Around here, you have to search long and hard to find a "tradish" powwow that actually follows one set of traditions and protocol. Like someone else posted, 2/3 of these people wouldn't know an indian if one was stomping on your toes. The other third would be demanding that you to prove it by showing your card.

                      I learned a long time ago, that you can tell who the real ndn's are. They're the ones just keeping to themselves, enjoying what they can from the powwow. Either that, or the ones packing up and leaving the powwow.

                      The wannbees are always trying to be noticed, and running around talking about just how much ndn they really are, and fighting over who makes the best frybread. Bah! They argue over it cause none of em can make it!

                      Sounds like this one over in Indiana is another one to avoid.

                        Dawg Stylez, your so right. I have to leave Indiana most of the time to find good powwows. But you would be surprized that many people here are quiet and who are wonderful crafts people and know there stuff.....
                        If I do not know the answer someone else will!!!!
                        Also forgive me, this system does not have a spell check so forgive the bad spelling

                          So true. I do know of several people who just quietly go about their business and create some beautiful work. I myself have no patience, so that makes me appreciatte it more.

                            Powwow leeway

                            I have to say most Powwows in the Ohio and Indiana area are hobbies Powwows. Most Powwows growing up that I have been to are in Ontario, Minnesota, Michigan, etc. Moving to Ohio on strange events, that's a long story. At my first Powwows here in Ohio, Ihave to say it was like being in a new world. Singing with different and the way people dress, dance was different.

                            One day I might just have a Powwow in the Ohio area and have a authentic detector at Grand entry, yelling like a dog might set it off, so watch out.

                              I forgot all about this thread.

                              Metis? Indianapolis? Hmmm?

                              ___

                              I was passin' through Ohio once and stopped at a powwow in Danville. The head singer asked me to stick around for the 49 and I did (only because he twisted my arm).

                              We all gathered and were ready for a good night of singing and fellowship!

                              After the starting song some guy (not knowing any better) immediately sings- the quitting song!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                              So much for our 49. *sad. We all disbanded and called it a night.
                              Powwows will continue to evolve in many directions. It is inevitable.
