  • Most people there were middle aged
  • Majority men
  • Group of men playing drums
  • A single man talking on the mike like he’s directing
  • A circle to dance in
  • Venders
  • Some children were present
  • Valid attempt to create a family environment
  • Most people there were Native American
  • Terribly deep southern accent


  • For families
  • Laid back kind of chill atmosphere
  • A lot of planning was involved
  • The goal seemed to make money
  • There was very little order and a lot of leisure
  • The dancers got very tired fast
  • Very traditional feel because very few women participated in the dancing
