    I have never danced in a pow-wow but have seen when items are dropped and AD will pickup and give it back to the dancer.

    The eagle feather is Ceremonial and scared. Respect the place you are visiting. Go with their tradtions and if none than go by what your family does.

    Does anyone else have any of the history of the story shared by Azurebreeze--hearing it makes my heart flutter. Please indicate the tribe the story comes from if possible.
    Where's the Pow-wow at????

      by calicoquilts
      I recently attended a dance and during the evening session a woman was doing a jingle dress exhibition. Her dancing was wrong to say the least and the only dancer doing this exhibition.

      Lost Item within dance circle
      by Gledanh Zhinga

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...

      chamber's farm
      by Apache_Fancy_Shawl
      Hello, was at chamber's farm last night for a so called pow-wow.
      In my opinion, they needed to call it a white man trying to have a Native American gathering. sevral of the dancers were walking across the circle with food and drinks, just so they didn't have to go around the circle. they had people...
