    Why not??? Unless it would be harmful to your health I have never heard that you can't. Have seen women dance. May want to stop when you can't get in the clothes anymore. Have seen one down here dance fancy up to 2 weeks before.:D

        Personally, this is up to you and the traditions of our tribe. I was told your not suppose to but nowadays alot of people do. Myself I danced when I very first found out and wasn't even showing(much) but now, I don't. I'm to rotound plus depending on what style you do you may hurt the baby. Most people that dance through out there pregnancy usually do traditional.
        Iwas going to go to a pow-wow this weekend and dance but decided against just because I was told my some elders awhile back that to dance when your pregnant is to offer your baby back to the spirits. But then that is not a way from my tribe so I think it varies on yourself and your tribe.

        But hay, that is just me opinoin!!!!:Chatter :Chatter :Chatter

              And you know this MAN!!!!!!:D
              Anywho, you know those ones that come and stay with me for our pow-wows? Ya' those ones. And I know what you are thinking next, is well, Oklahoma. So maybe, huh, I don't know!
              Wait what was the question again?

              If you feel you can do it then do it, if you are having issues about it then don't! I understand that it's a hard concept but hey, it's ( que music) It's a hard knock life for us, it's a hard knock life for us.

              Peeze out!!!

                  A year ago at Matoon I saw a Northern Cloth dancer compete AND win the women's traditional contest. She had a big ole' belly!! But she did look elegant.

                  I've heard yea and nay. Like was said if you feel uncomfortable then I wouldn't.

                  I had my NDN Princess 2001 dancing nine months before she was born!!:D And she's still in the circle.

                  Also, all I have ever seen the mommies to be dance was traditional.
