it is too bad that it doesnt occur after we get our per cap. i bet more of our people would attend if they had some coin in their pocket. i mentioned this once, and somebody got all defensive over it. he said if we wait a week it rains. i was under the impression that you cant predict rain. at least we cant. we have been wet a few times. at any rate it would be nice if more prairie band would attend their own pow wow. maybe if we made a sacrifice......
i will put up a camp like i do every year. i like to have a place to sit in the shade when it gets boring. usually i have a pot of cowboy coffee going constantly. camping is fun, though not many around here do it. too close to a comfortable bed i guess. cooking over a fire sure tastes good. i like to have breakfast everyday of the pow wow. and have a pot of soup on too. we get alot of visitors to come to our campsite. coffee and food draws them. and visiting. drop in, if you are in the area.
seems our pow wow just keeps getting bigger. as far as pow wows go, it aint a bad one. but then, i think most pow wows are good. i heard someone liken pow wows to sex. when its good, its good. when its not so good, its still good. hmmm.....interesting analogy. but i get the point. we manage to get some good singing groups to come here. and our home boys are very good too. we get plenty of good dancers that are fun to watch.
no doubt we will have a good time. thats the way it is suppose to be. i dont care for pow wows where people just sit in their own chairs and stare at one another. it should be an interactive thing. its fun to meet people and talk. probably the way indians have always done it. hope the weather holds up. good music, good dance,plenty of visiting, good food....what more can you ask for."
