Can't stand it anymore! Gotta get to Oklahoma. At the powwow. Trying to develop the hybrid "Fancy Straight Dance"

After the 49.

From approximately 8:00 am to 1:00 pm. Get ready to go back to the dance. Repeat phases 2 through 5 for three day powwows. Satisfied once again. I might be able to handle it for another 3 weeks.

cat eating = Eating. It is not a phase unto itself, but rather an ever-present theme at powwows.

Powwow Pics

Here are several pictures of your not-so-humble Dean. I am a Southern Straight Dancer and have placed at several (including a couple of firsts!) powwows throughout Texas and Oklahoma. My proudest achievement was placing second at the Comanche Nation Fair in 1999 (much bigger than any of the ones I placed first at!) Because of different life circumstances, I had not danced since 2001. That was at the Ft. Carson Powwow in Colorado Springs. Now that life has finally settled down to some form of normalcy, I dusted off the dance clothes, shined up the bells, and hit the arena again this year at the Freedom Powwow in Colorado Springs. As soon as I get new pics they will be added (hey, I have long hair again!) Click on the thumbnail to see a full sized pic.
