Tessi Tonka (Jim Fox’s Lakota name) dancing at his Indian Adoption Ceremony.  All may dance.WHAT AN HONOR!


The Head Man and Woman dancer is an honor position for a pow wow, and they are selected by a committee. No, it does not mean they are the best dancers; however, they may well be. It means they are respected in the community of Indians and non-Indians. They do things in a good way. They lead out all the dances. They are beacons of the Creator's love and light. All may dance in the circle with them. What you will feel is joy, happiness, peace and an understanding of the blessings received by all who enter the Sacred Pow Wow Circle. See you there!

Next "Smoke on the Wind," The Veteran Dancers.
