DAS POWWOW IN MENGEN AM 22./23. Mai 2010 IST DEFINITIV ABGESAGT!!!
 
Wie mittlerweile den Meisten bekannt sein dürfte, ist UNACAE ein neu gegründeter Verein, dessen Vorstand zum größten Teil aus Native American besteht. Dieser Verein hatte bisher nicht die Möglichkeit, sich persönlich vorzustellen, daher wurde in verschiedenen Foren darüber gemutmaßt. Dies führte offenbar zu Mißverständnissen bezüglich der Zielsetzung von UNACAE. Daraufhin haben viele Tänzer, Hobbyisten und andere Interessierte ihre Teilnahme am Mengener Powwow abgesagt. Am schlimmsten trifft uns die Erkrankung unseres 1. Vorsitzenden. Ohne ihn fehlt uns die Seele der gesamten Veranstaltung.
 
Dem neuen Verein geht es in erster Linie darum, interessierten Personen die indianischen Kulturen in Deutschland/Europa zugänglich zu machen bzw. für sie zu werben. Sofern erforderlich, ist der Verein auch bestrebt, im Einzelfall betroffene Native American vor Ausbeutung zu schützen, wie z.B. seinerzeit die vielen indianischen Tänzer die aus den USA nach Mannheim und Bielefeld kamen und für ihre Darbietungen nicht bezahlt wurden. Unseriöse Geschäftemacher sollen angeprangert werden.
 
Wie bereits in der Vergangenheit bei dem Vorgänger-Verein „Blackwater Band of Muskokee“ ist auch UNACAE und seine Mitglieder offen allen Personen gegenüber, die sich für indianische Kulturen interessieren und insbesondere auch für die Hobbyisten. Auch begrüßt der Verein deren Mitwirkung bei Veranstaltungen.
 
Verständlicherweise erwartet UNACAE allerdings auch, daß die Gäste und Mitwirkenden bei seinen Veranstaltungen den indianischen Kulturen den gebührenden Respekt entgegenbringen.
 
Uns ist bekannt, daß wir viele unserer Freunde, die gerne zu unserem Powwow gekommen wären, mit unserer Entscheidung enttäuschen. Dies bedauern wir im höchsten Maße. Wir hoffen aber, daß die, die weiter an uns und unsere Arbeit glauben, Verständnis zeigen werden.
Zu gegebener Zeit wird sich UNACAE in der Öffentlichkeit vorstellen und allen interessierten Rede und Antwort stehen.

2. Vorsitzender

POWWOW IN THE QUANTITIES AM 22-23. May 2010 DEFINITELY IS CANCELLED!
9th NATIVE AMERICAN POW-WOW

UNITED NATIVE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION COUNCIL EUROPE eV
22nd & 23 May 2010
88 512 volumes in the district of Sigmaringen, Germany
on the grounds of the festival amounts.
 
Patronage is the city amounts i.V. Mr. Mayor Bubeck.

POWWOW IN THE QUANTITIES AM 22-23. May 2010 DEFINITELY IS CANCELLED!
 
As is now the most will know, is UNACAE a newly established association, whose board mostly of Native American is. This association have not had the opportunity to introduce themselves in person, so was speculated in various forums. This obviously led to misunderstandings about the purpose of UNACAE. Subsequently, many dancers, hobbyists and other interested parties have canceled their participation in the Mengen powwow. At worst, the disease hits us our first Chairman. Without him, we lack the soul of the entire event.
 
The new club is primarily a matter of making people interested the Indian cultures in Germany / Europe accessible and to promote them. If necessary, the association also strives to protect the individual concerned Native American from exploitation, such as at the time the many Indian dancers who came from the U.S. to Mannheim and Bielefeld, and were not paid for their performances. Rogue traders are to be denounced.
 
As in the past with the previous club "Black Water Band of Muskokee" UNACAE and its members is also open to anyone over, interested in Native American cultures, and especially for the hobbyist. The club also welcomes their participation at events.
 
Understandably UNACAE expected but also that the guests and participants at its events felt for the Native American cultures, the proper respect.
 
We know that we many of our friends who would like to come to our powwow, disappoint with our decision. This we regret the highest degree. But we hope that those who continue to believe us and our work to show understanding.
In due time, UNACAE will present to the public and all interested questions.
 
Willie J. Summers
2nd Chairman

Nichols has some very distorted Creek history on his website. Claims that Tecumseh was a Shawnee/Creek Chief. Shawnee father and Creek mother. Has facts for the Trail of Tears wrong. According to Nichols, all five of the Nations traveled to Indian Territory in 1836.

His explanation of the holy tradition of the powwow screams wannabe. Powwow is not traditional to any of the Southeastern Nations. There is nothing holy or sacred about a powwow. If Nichols is going to pretend to be Mvskoke, he really should do a little more research.


Quote
All people who are willing to respect our Native American culture, traditions and themselves are welcome at our Powwow’s. A Powwow is something very holy to us, it is a family and social gathering where our prayers of worship are spoken for all people!   
During the Powwow’s back then friends and peace were made. An under-standing among ourselves for hope and goodwill in order to retain the old traditions of our Ancestors.
The center of the Powwow is the circle where the people dance. It has only one entrance and one exit, which is pointed towards the East.
Before entering the circle we purify ourselves with sage smoke. When we are dancing in the Holy grounds of the circle, our ancestors are there with us.
The Powwow is open to the public and everybody is welcome to visit us and to support our traditional Muskokee/Creek Powwow.
We are asking you to come with respect for the Native American culture and traditions and want to remind you that the aim of my people was always to make friends with the Europeans – despite the horrible past.
We are inviting our honorable Native American sisters and brothers from the Turtle Island to help us share our Native American way of life with the Europeans who are interested to learn more about it, and not to abuse or misuse it.
We are a proud nation with honor and dignity and we know that harmony isn’t automatic, but that you have to work hard for it.
A Muskokee/Creek never says goodbye, but „cehecires“ which means „see you later“ – Mvto.

I just received an attempt to send me a virus from Larry Nichols. I suppose it is possible that it could have come from a site that acquired his address, a hacked account, etc, something else that might make him not responsible.

If it was him I have no idea why this would come two years since we last discussed him. The BM site is still "under construction" all this time.
