  • I have a question

    ok this is the first time i have started a thread so bear with me.

    I wasn't raised on my rez so i didn't have the chance to learn how to dance. I have a general idea of how to do the northern traditional dance.

    can anyone give me any pointers? :D

    i would suggest that you go to a pow wow and watch. pick acouple of dancers you like and watch what they do. also, ask them questions.

      There are also a ton of powwow videos that you could buy. Most of these are for sale by powwow vendors or bead store. You could also order them out of somewhere like crazy crow.

      But watching these tapes you might be able to pick up a few things.............

          by jiimaanikwe
          I have attended plenty of powwows in my day, but never had any insight into the inner workings. As my university has finally settled its racist mascot situation, I want to organize a giant powwow in the fall to kick a brand new start. I plan on contacting the American Indian Center...

          by Jim Phelps

          Since the server crashed, I lost my last posted question. Well, this is it. I'm trying to figure out how to fasten the feathers of shoulder wings in the middle? What are they attached to and how are they fastened to the traditional dance regalia?

          If you can give...
