** LIVE from Idaho Falls Native American Dance

U.S. Constitution NOT void where prohibited by law !!


We believe that many of our rights and civil liberties as American citizens on American soil are at great risk and that a simple act of civil disobedience has the power to effect great change. While we have no interest or intention in breaking any law, we are willing to stand up for freedom and the constitution at any time and at any place and do so in a responsible and productive manner. It is our goal to create free and open discussion whenever possible in an effort to educate both ourselves and anyone with a desire to learn. A well known rule of government is that ignorance is no excuse for the law. It is our stand that we as Americans have been either uninformed or misinformed regarding our laws and rights for far too long. We are not attorneys or scholars, however we have been involved in professional photography for over 30 years and have had our rights and freedoms challenged more times than we can remember. No one group or person has the ability to effect change across the board, however we are committed to doing our part by continuing to stand up for our constitutional right to free press and the right to take photographs and video in public. All donations will be used exclusively to further this cause. Specifically, we  need to upgrade our computer, video editing software and purchase additional video gear. We want to thank you in advance for your support of what we do and want you to know that we are committed to working harder than ever to defend our rights, your rights and the Freedom to Film in Public!!

  1. Sorry but it kinda reminds me of Tibetans /Mongolian native dance !
    The drum beats , the steps etc. ,….not all but 70 % !
    Maybe they have migrated thousands years ago from there when land bridge from Russia north east and Alaska was not under the sea permanently !

  2. I'm not a cultural relativist, I don't pretend every culture is equal just to not offend. So I mean it when I say their music is absolutely abysmal. Also how do we know this is a traditional anything? Given they didn't have writing they'd only know what is passed down orally. When we do this it's called myth and treated only as a novelty, but when other indigenous people do it it's considered rote and questioning it gets you the rope. I've never understood that. Here in Australia it is now a legal requirement to teach children aboriginies have been here 'forever', and 'since the dream time'. Even though we know that isn't true.

    The duration they've been here expands by 10,000 years every decade, yet physical evidence has not changed since the 1950's (besides the odd painting appearing places they want to claim, often in carbon black which cannot be dated). Given that I've seen 'elders' drop flint tools and bones around a site to stop a government development and claim it's ancient aboriginal land I have learnt to be skeptical of people who seem to think being somewhere longer gives them more entitlements (yet those entitlements don't apply to say my family who have been here longer than Ahmed down the street, no, if I try that argument that's called racism – and rightly so).

  5. That was BEAUTIFUL Thank you for filming and sharing. Can you imagine at how many generations that was passed down from, Again Thanks !

  6. Wonderful video, thanks for sharing. The drum is excellent, as was the lady dancing. The lady's regalia is called a jingle dress. The jingles are metal cones attached to the dress.

  7. Thank you for sharing this video. l come from Brantford Ontario and every year we have a Pow Wow outside our city on the Indian Reservation. It is the highlight of the summer season. Unfortunately this year it has been canceled for the first time because of the covid virus.
