  • To Cami or not to Cami?

    My daughter loves blue cameoflauge. She wants her new dress to have the complementing ruffle, and sleeves to have blue cami instead of the material I originally bought. (that is no longer suitable) We hunted and hunted for some hawks with a blue background (main part of dress will be plain blue) but no such luck, she found some blue cami stuff she wants, that yes compliments the material nice ..... but for a Pow Wow? I don't care to see cami period(for Pow Wow clothes), or material with flags for clothes ... to me it's just tacky.

    What do ya'll think? Am I really that stuck up?

      let's see, uh.... no. We need not see camouflage in the arena. Krogers and the Piggly Wiggly are doing just fine in that area!

        Well if it fits in with your Tsalagi heritage then go for it, but you already know the answer - gawd!

            Well, since you asked don't take offense, BUT what in the H3LL are you? NO NO NO camouflage.

            I don't think you're stuck up, just lost somewhere. Please find yourself, your daughter needs correct teachings!

              Anti-cami

              I vote for no cami. I also vote no for cartoon characters. I have seen the Little Mermaid and Mickey Mouse in the arena. It's just not very traditional.
              Seeing the result of our actions should not be why we act; it should be the action itself.

                  Hey Super,
                  If cami does come on the scene, does that mean we'll see Southern women donning those super market moomoos as Cherokee Tear dresses?

                            Now why haven't we seen cami on outfits before?
                            Oh wait I know, because it's WIERD!!!:Eyepopper

                            Ok All teasing aside! Sorry couldn't help it!
                            It would depend on how you use it and the amount you use on the outfit! Like if you were going to use it for maybe a design on top of a design type thing! Try it, it might look pretty cool!
                            But if your talking a skirt made out of just cami,
                            Then Annie Get Your Gun, ya'll be warrin' wit' some peoples!!
                            Tell your little girl that you could maybe make a design with it but not "going to war and need a skirt to wear" all out!

                            While it might not be traditional, well traditionally we wouldn't be dancin' for money in sequins and satin back in the day anyways!
                            Traditionally speaking!

                            Hell, when girls came out with sequin shawls, and women come out with outfits made out of liquid lame`, I'm sure people thought that was totally inappropriate!

                            Just watch how you use it! Little, you could probably slide by with!
                            All Cami'ed out with the face paint, they might send you to the middle east to fight!
                            Before you attempt to beat the odds, make sure you can survive the odds beating you!

                            Why do some people bother breathing when you know their brain isn't getting the oxygen?

                              I can only speak for myself, it would not be a good idea I think. I am Ponca, Sac&Fox and Otoe and I think my grandma would haunt me if I let my girls wear something like what you are talking about. But that is just me, maybe you would feel different or your tribe may be different.....But me, I am a stick in the mud on issues like what is proper and traditional to wear. Old school is my point, wear your own tribal clothes, etc.etc.
                              So cami is beyond my realm of thinking for cloth dancers.
                              I am thankful for my grandparents, my parents, my brothers, my aunties and uncles, my children, my companion and all of those who influenced me to be strong and proud of being who I am and where I come from. Knowledge is power
