The Gathering of Nations..a joke to us “real” down to earth real Natives. It’s a pow wow, that exploits Native American but we as Native people allow it, stupid ain’t it? We cry out over The Washington Redskins using the name, “Redskin” and we bitch loud over it, The Gathering of Nations is doing the same with Native Americans but yet no one says nothing, our Native brothers, sisters dance like for these people like a monkey dances for an organ grinder. The Gathering of Nations, exploit ALL Native culture, for MONEY and FAME, thats bottom line, it does NOT give anything back to any tribe it exploits.. It’s ALL about MONEY. Most Natives come out, some don’t even know their own heritege anymore and TRY to “out Indian” each other.. “monkey and the organ grinder”.. people, wake up, this is an exploitation on Native Americans just for money, just like the Washington Redskin is doing. I’m REAL, Dine’ and some of us refuse to be puppets to people like Derrik mattews and his crew..


Went to gathering was disappointed in the attitude of the announcer Ruben Littlehead. I would not recommend him to MC. Not only that, GON is not a traditional pow wow. It is strictly contest and no social dancing. They need to change the name to GON Contest Dancing. Sorry for the negativity.

I had a great time watching your POW WOW for 4 hours but had to leave because my computer shut down and I lost the feed. I didn’t get the code for the blanket raffle but it is ok . It was worth watching. I would feel definitely out of place with my buckskin dress being so plain and my strawberry blond hair and blue eyes, even my blood line says I’m native American I would feel out of place. My sprit in Native through and through but the looks would hurt. So watching from here is probably better.
