      There is not a dance associated with it. It is part of their college experience. It us unique that they would want their students to know about this aspect of Indian people.

      All my dad said (again this is second hand, from awhile ago) is that they open the competition with a prayer. He said the students study pretty hard to get their information about the tribe and tipi it represents.
      Powwows will continue to evolve in many directions. It is inevitable.

          by wyo_rose
          HELP! I've just been volunteered to help organize the parade through Jackson Hole for the Shoshone Reunion in July.

          There were mentions of insurance, permits, etc... And how does one exactly organize a parade??

          Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

          Dealing with anger
          by chirapachegurl
          what are some of the ways that you deal with your anger and the person you're angry at? i've tried the deep breathing, listening to soft music, taking a walk, sleeping in the other room, thinking about worst things that i could be mad about but it doesn't help me.

          Libya. Should America be there?
          by WhoMe
          Here we go again. . .

          What is our interest there? There are lots of other countries with social unrest. Why do we always get involved with the Middle East?

          Should we even be there?
