    28th Anniversary Black Hills Powwow - Rapid City, SD

    Just returned from 28th Anniversary Black Hills Powwow in Rapid City, SD. Temperatures in the 70’s compared to a raging snow storm last year. Very well attended. The archery tournament was spot on awesome! Some of the best range shooting I’ve seen in a long time.

    The Fine Arts Show started off as a market, but when organizers promoted a Fine Arts Contest, the good stuff came out. Artists were asked to provide two pieces of their work for judging and the winner’s art would be featured as next year’s poster background for the 29th Annual Powwow. The organizers were the judges and no People’s Choice voting was allowed. As of Sunday, still didn’t know whose art was chosen. Guess we’ll have to wait till next year to find out. Not seeing Don Montileaux and Vic Runnels artwork at the show was sorely missed . Was fortunate enough to visit with Richard Red Owl and his wife.

    Competition dancing in all categories was tight. Like watching the Indian National Finals Rodeo, drum groups kept us dancing with little or no idle time between sets. Visited with a lot of my friends. I don’t have any results of the Men’s Northern Traditional competition as I had to catch the last flight out of Rapid City back to PDX via SLC.

      Arthur's Indiana Metis powwow.....
      by Mato Winyan
      The powwow was last weekend at Indy. I went. I have to admit it wasn't as bad as I had anticipated after being to the other "event" I went to the previous weekend. It was typical for a Indiana powwow.

      Some of the same spooky people were at both events but the real difference...

      Just recovering, *haha a bit out of shape here* This was one of the first powwows in a long time that I had a good time at. No pressure to dance, I felt like I belonged. Was good to just sit and watch.

      It was very well run, good people and drums. My only suggestion would be to have A...

      As powwow season winds down we can begin to reflect on our year of powwowing.

      Last week, I went to a powwow in California. Part of this trip was by air and the other part was on the powwow highway. My driving shift was in the middle of the night, both coming and going between the hours...

      Which powwows are must see for powwow virgins?
      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...
