The DNA Board is not a discussion for this topic re: featehrs pow wows ect.
But I wanted to add this;
Pow Wows are not just a FUN thing, it is a gathering of my people, I did not take an Oath of Sobriety, because it was fun, I took that oath for my self, my Ancestors, the youth, the Elders, our Parents, the brothers and sisters on this board, and because I fight for Indian rights, sing on a traditional drum and compose my self as a traditional woman, I am in NO way better than anyone else.
I dont carry a tribal card, but this is not a game to me this is my life. I commit my life to the people. And when someone wants to educate me on why Turkey is sacred then I am all for it! I want to make sure it is Turkey we are talking here, I had a friend who is Cherokee and he had all Hawk feathers for his bussle, some people get the 2 mixed up.
I am more than happy to talk about this, I am no expert of Saponi tradition, or any tradition, I just follow what I have been taught by Lakota, Ojibe and Oddawa.
