  • rights

    if you going to dance southern cloth you should get the rights from the people where it stated from. you should find out about it and get the right to do it. most people out there not from oklahome don't have the right to do it. you know who you are and you should be a shame of your self. the pattern that you copy is not yours and you should not use it or try to change it so you can say it's yours. that pattern may belong to some on.

      Since this is an open discussion of goes

      I've had some of my designs copied as well and am not the least bit flattered. I work very hard to come up with my designs and ideas for my family's regalia. The worst part of it is that another Indian is copying my stuff.
      Everyone needs their own style and designs. Keep it real or at least ask the party that you are copying from.

      Also, if you are not given the right to wear another tribes clothing style or designs - don't. Nothing is more upsetting than seeing someone change styles just because they like the outfit! If you change styles I have been told that it has to be paid for. You have to pay for the right to wear those clothes - not just do it.

        Boozhoo niji,

        I know this one is gonna start some fires, so be it. This have been bugging me for a couple of months and now I am bringing it out into the open for everyone to attack, flame, ridicule and possibly even get banned over.

        DNA Tribes Info
        by hamiller13
        Okay, so awhile ago I sent a DNA sample to DNA Tribes and had them do a Native American Panel. Does the information on one of these DNA Panels, as far as percentages of what tribes my DNA shows, count for anything other than my curiosity? I'm not even positive I'm reading it correctly. Can anyone...

        Thoughts on the Red Road vs. Rainbow Tribe Way
        by Mato Winyan
        This is a letter I received from a person that I have permission to post here. This is a result of a discussion on a group on the net. It was started because a person came on the site and posted a "prophesy" by the Rainbow Tribe. I felt that this man explained things extremely well without...

        Sample Chapter
        by CaudwellianDialect
        Okay so thus far chapter 3 is one of my strongest, though it is an action chapter, and I am trying to avoid too many of those because I don't want to portray the Anowarkowans as violent people, but more, it is hard to say, they are enlightenment era almost technologically, but different then Europeans,...
