Intertribal Powwow

Linda Bailey Potter 11.DEC.06
TERLINGUA – The First Annual Terlingua Intertribal Powwow was held at the Terlingua Community Center Dec. 1, 2. The public was invited to watch, learn and even participate during the intertribal dances. Attendees were asked to bring a new, unwrapped toy or a donation for admission. All proceeds went to benefit Terlingua youth.

Ignacio Menchaca De La Vega, Chirchua Apache-Comanche, San Antonio was the Head Gourd Dancer; Richard Whitebear member of Tsalagi tribe, Long-hair Clan (Peace Chiefs), Frank “Kiowa Jim” Tongkeamha, full-blooded Kiowa Indian of Dallas and Joy Bowman, Head Lady Dancer were all on hand for the ceremonies.

Bowman is Eastern Cherokee/Sioux from the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and now resides in San Antonio. She works with Native People across Texas in hopes of seeking recognition for Native People.

Vega served as Chairman of the Alamo Gourd Dance Society for several years and has been honored as Head Gourd Dancer across the state for numerous Powwows, including the Fort Sam Houston Powwow.

He served as Sergeant in the 36th Infantry Division and Texas 1st Brigade during the Viet Nam Era. Vega’s dedication and community involvement continues through presentations and workshops that promote Native American Culture at schools, organizations and institutions.

Whitebear was born on a dirt floor in the boundaries of Qualla and at 12 he was taken into the Blue Mountains of North Carolina where he remained in training with his grandfather, a Tsalagi holy man until he was 15. He and his wife now reside in Terlingua, raising Painted Arabian horses and have built a spiritual retreat in the shadow of the Corazone Mountain at a place they call Spirit Tracks Ranch.

Kiowa Jim was a headsman of the early Kiowa Gourd Clan and the Oh-Ho-Mo Lodge Dance Society. He is the great grandson of Chief StumblingBear who became a chief of the Kiowa Tribe at the age of 22 and was later known as a peacemaker; he also a signer of a peace treaty at Medicine Lodge, Kansas in 1867.

Events on Saturday included a Gourd Dance and Intertribal Dancing for all to join, after lunch there was the presentation of Colors of the Flags and more Intertribal Dancing with performers only. There was also cakewalks, raffles and a children’s candy dance.
