  • So... who is ready to set the old lodge up?

    Just wondering since it is now spring who was getting the lodge out of storage and where you'll be setting it up at.

    We have had 2 lodges up since last fall and plan to keep them up year round - makes a nice gathering place and a comfy place to change before and after the sweat - was especially nice this winter to have the new stove set up.

      So do you have to coat the canvas or treat it some how to keep it from turning grey or green and rotting? People I knew once upon a time had a prob with that.

        The 26 footer is treated canvass - the smaller 18 footer is untreated - this is the first winter for both - will let you know how they fared.

          How about when am I ever going to get my tipi out of storage and put it up.
 two shots in the knee so I can walk. Today some doctor stuck his finger up my rear and now tells me he is going to do that with a camera in one month. Then in two weeks after that, they will do othroscopic on my knee to file down splinters on my bones, and if that does not work....I get a new knee from the Cracker Jack box.

          Cannot bend over to pound my pegs into the ground much less pick the cover up.

          Whoooooooaaaa is me.

          Oh well, I will be at the Union grove dance.
          See you in the pool.

            Just took down my 18 footer. I will probably put it back up this weekend. Weather here is great for camping right now (70's in the day and 40's at night).

                I was able to set up my new 19.5 footer Reese tipi a couple of weeks ago and it's a LOT bigger than my old 14 footer.

                Yesterday though, i took my 14 footer down to the Waleska, GA powwow for their tipi competition, but with all the rains, seeing how wet the powwow grounds were (about 1/3 of the dance arena was underwater), plus some other factors, i decided to not set up but to head on home instead. There's always other powwows and other years, plus i'll have the 19.5 footer ready for competition by then. (maybe it won't rain so much next year!!! ).
                DANCING IS EVERYTHING!!!!

                I love my tipi's. I'll never be homeless with them.

                  Maybe this is too simple of a response. . . next time you tie your tripod, lower the lashing on the door pole. Once you have set up your lodge "perfectly," notch your tripod poles so you know where to lash them in the future. OR, maybe your lodge wasn't cut correctly to begin with . ....

                  What's the most Rezzed out, stereotypical Indian thing you've ever done?

                  I'd like to read some funny stories. Tell me what is the most rezzed out thing you or someone you know has ever done. You know, like your rez ride that only drives in 1st gear and you drove 4 hours to get to the pow-wow in it. That kind of stuff.

                  Well it seems that there is some kind of huge meth problem up in Alaska or so they say.. so the stores up here have taken everything with D in it's name ie; Claritin D, tussin D... off the shelves and you have to go to the pharmacy to get them.

                  Lost Item within dance circle
                  by Gledanh Zhinga
                  It's been a long time since I've seen an early Ponca method of taking care of a lost item on the dance floor or grounds. A veteran who had seen action (a warrior) picked up the item and returned it to the owner. The veteran then recounted a personal battle or war story (a coup). And that was pretty...
