Pow Wow Etiquette has been handed down to know these things as children when we went to the pow wows and it was always explained that , if we had nonnative friends tagging along, these where the 4 most important rules of the trip.
Today, even though it is told at some of the pow wows in the address to the public, some don’t pay attention to what’s going on because of the excitement of being at ...

Best Buy is a favorite stop for my husband (the webmaster here). He, like many others, loves to browse the aisles of toys to add to his wishlist. And like so many others, he usually inspects and tries out the products in Best Buy then orders it from Amazon.com for a better price.
Best Buy has wised up to that practice and is going to offer price matching! Now you can shop and buy at Best ...
Whenever we're off to a powwow I pull out my "Ultimate List." This list keeps me organized and stress free! Well, almost stress free!
It would be naive of me to say that my Ultimate List meets everyone's personal needs but I believe I have compiled some essentials that hopefully combined with your list could make the task of packing a little easier.
Here are the items that I must have:
___Travel Itinerary (PW info for hotel/camping)
___ Chalk Rock ...
As Native people, we take pride in our hair. It portrays our cultural identity, our values, and our beliefs. In the old days when most of our people wore their traditional hairstyles, there were amazing creations and enhancements. Some were for practicality, others were decorative and others were ceremonial. As I see pictures from long ago, I have to remember that our ancestors were using traditional products of the day and not today’s shampoos, conditioners, mousses, gels, and hairsprays nor ...
The end of our busy powwow season is approaching. One more long road trip to Comanche Fair! The drive from Washington D.C. to Oklahoma for us is a two day confined endeavor. No matter how big our vehicle is we never seem to have enough room. So, we decided the only solution was to look outside the vehicle to haul our gear....
We’ve just returned from the He Sapa Wacipi Na Oskate in Rapid City, South Dakota. It was a 1500 mile roundtrip for me but well worth the time spent with my grandsons (who live a few hundred miles away), daughter, and other powwow friends.
I’d been thinking about my next blog and an idea for “Fantasy Powwow” came to mind:
At outdoor powwows, the campgrounds are lush green grass with reserved parking for your vehicles, your own fresh water pump, and a ...
