    I may seem radical, but don't you have to be a certain tribe to be wearing ribbonwork applique? My goodness, what is the pow wow world coming to when you can buy someone's tribal regalia on the net? LOL but seriously, what tribe will just sell thier rights to a regalia on the pow cloth board? It's a sad day in oklahoma.

      so you saying that eveyrobody that wears a jingle dress went through the proper tribal procedures to wear them

      so eveyrbody that wears a southern buckshkin dress is kiowa
      since the dress origin is kiowa

      its a sad day in pow wow country
      i'm not going to go into what is tribally appropriate

      there is a pow wow contest outfit for sale not a tribal outfit contest outfit for sale, contest

        i think that its gettin a little hot in here
        ok if you wear a dress that is not of your tribe i think that is fine. i do, but i also give credit to the western origin of my dress, and know the history behind lumbee patchwork and cherokee tear dress (as i am descended from both tribes). so as long as you show respect i think itll be ok.

        anyway i couldnt find this in the gallery perhaps you could post a link.

              So, then, you are saying that is not a tribal ribbonwork applique dress and just because you classify it as a contest dress, anyone can wear it?
              I totally disagree. That has Otoe-Missouri designs, the leaves, and also the way it comes down the front. The Great Lakes tribes, as well as Oklahoma tribes(Sac&Fox, Iowa, Ponca, Otoe, Pawnee) wear this style of dress.
              Oh, and yes, I also believe that those who wear a jingle dress SHOULD have received it in the proper ceremony. It's only respect to the tribe and the original dancers of that medicine dress.
              Also, Kiowas are not the only tribe that wears buckskin dresses. All Tribes wore them before the trade cloth became available. The way you can tell the difference is the style it is made in, and the colors and designs upon it.
              I am from Oklahoma, brought into the arena at WhiteEagle, and have respect for my own tribal clothes. I do not wear anyone elses clothes and I guess I am too old fashioned for this board because I find it offensive to see this attitude towards this tribal dress.
              But, as they say, such is life and this will continue to be done because other tribes will admire a style of dress and decide they want to wear it so they can buy it on the net and put it on.
              But be conscious of the fact that there are still some traditional women, such as my aunties, that will walk up to you at a pow wow and ask you what tribe you are and how you came about wearing those clothes, who gave them to you and at what arena. And if you don't answer properly, they will ask you to take them off because you are disrespecting thier tribe and it's traditional regalia.

                          what if

                          the original seamstress of this dress gave fancystar the right to sell it for her? does that make a difference?

                            It's not really the seller, but the fact that it can be bought without properly having the rights to wear it. Mrs. Roberts is a nice person and does nice work, no disrespect to her. I understand she is choctaw/chickasaw to someone must have dressed her for her to wear ponca and otoe clothes. but does this give the right to sell a regalia of a certain tribe. Do the Cherokee get offended if someone, who is not their tribe, wear their dress or can buy it anywhere and put it on and therefore represent cherokee ancestry?

                              a lot of women claim cherokee ancestry and make or buy the tear dress what can we do??? take a dress away from them??

                              what about those of us who make clothes and then take them to trading posts where anyone in the world stopping by can buy them.
