    Wow just going over in my head what I’m going to do more of this year ..well one was get beading, and get back out there and dance I just turned 60 but i can still Pow Wow till th cow’s come home..I would love to so this.

  2. I grew up going to POW WOWs and I still love it, but I haven’t gone to one in several years. I always loved it because that was normal for me. It was hard for me to explain that to anyone who have not been to one. I hope you find the right people, to share the experience. It can’t be explain in a way that gives the whole thing justice.

    Well this gave me a new idea “blogging”. I have excellent communication skills and public speaking skills, but to write out my thoughts, my experiences, my discoveries that sounds exciting. I hope the chosen person will use this opportunity to write about different dancers in different powwow’ basically interview them so they can tell their story through the writer.

    It won’t let me submit. When I press submit nothing happens. Is there an email I can send my application to?

  6. Karen L. Testerman says:

    I am getting my grandchildren ready to hit the Pow Wow trail. Taking laptop, and camera. Perfect opportunity to take photographs and write articles.

  7. Regina Murillo says:

    Hello,

    I recently tired to apply for your bloggers position above this link; however, it would not let me submit. Is there another way to apply?

  8. Stacie Phillips~Farnsley says:

    I love to write and hope this position is just right for me and that it is still available. I have a great love of writing, a gift handed down from my father. I am of Native heritage on both sides of my parentage and these PowWow videos and blogs, seeing Our people dance the sacred dances again, does my heart good. Beautiful! My Grandmothers Are smiling down from Heaven at the progress we have made to get some of our children back to the ways of old. There will come a time once again, when All of Our Mixed Children will dance. Teaching them the way is half the journey for a mother of mixed blood. I am white on the outside…but to know me tells more.

  9. Are you still looking for Powwow bloggers? If so, I am definitely interested. There are a few things I will need to get done before getting started like, acquiring internet service and upgrading the computer. For the past year, I have been recovering from a serious back injury but on the road to recovery and am ready for a whole new chapter in my life. Being Native American and growing up in NE Oklahoma has allowed a wonderful lifelong Powwow culture experience. Having the opportunity to put all of the wonderful things I have experienced over the years as well as new ones to pen, oh how fulfilling that would be. Thank you for any opportunity.
