  • Smoke dance g.o.a.?

    Is it me, or are there fewer smoke dance contests?
    NO Schemitzun this year THAT SUCKS!! That was one of the few times I actually got to Smoke Dance during the year-besides my living room

    BUT-Allegany Veteran's Pow Wow is having their Smoke Dance this year, as usual....I see on the flyer that Evelyn George-Shongo is the Head Iroquois Judge....

    Hmmm...so where else is there?

      Grand river has a jr category again. not just 17 and under, so that's cool. Wiki has smoke as a category I believe.

        A whole category?! nice....whats it like trying to get up to Wiki, though? I heard that folks have to book a spot on the ferry to get over there-and that it's all camping once you get there....Have I heard right?
        Cuz my piece doesn't do well without AC! *L*

          I usually drive around because i'm just not organized enuff to make ferry times. The ferry trip is nice if you go that way but yeah it's busy season so booking is prolly a good idea. there is a motel in manitowanig (sp?) but I have just stayed with friends in the past. I think most camp though. I wanna try to get up there this yr as I haven't been for a few yrs. Kanawake and akwesasne and fall fair here all have smoke as categories.

                            I think the smoke singer is listed on the flyer.

                            Also, if you can get down here on Thursday over at the Oneida Museum they have cultural fest, and there is smoke dancing there too (not sure if it is open for all or what the deal is, but could call the museum)

                                Just wanted to let you all know that I won't be around for over a week. Going to a nice dance in McAllen TX. They asked me to help as their AD. Gary Kodaseet is the MC. IF, anyone needs a dance this weekend and can make it this is a nice dance to have fun.

                                I know that everyone talks about the Ladies in Smoke Dance, but the Men don't get nearly their due...My question is who yous think is the ultimate in Men's Smoke Dance?

                                I always thought that the best was tied between 2 guys that DO NOT GET ENOUGH CREDIT!! Herbie John and Jordan Smith....If...

                                Good Afternoon everyone, I've browsed this board may times but I haven't seen much info on my cultural dances. So to get the ball rolling what do the rest of you think about smoke dances as competition at many powwows up hear in the NY/NJ area?

                                I'm also interested in learning what everyone...

                                by WhoMe
                                Undoubtedly, Chicken (Prairie) Dancing is becoming more popular coast-to-coast.

                                I have seen Navaho, Comanche and Lumbee chicken dancers.

                                Anybody wanna' venture out and explain this dance? Perhaps the who (tribe/s), what, where, whys and how?
