Oglala Lakota Nation Pow Wow
I am the essence of powwow, i am
toilets without paper, i am fry bread
in sawdust, i am bull dung
on rodeo grounds at the all-Indian
Rodeo and Horse show, i am
the essence of powwow, iam
video games with with braids, i am spirt
from toothless mouths,i am turquoise
and boootleg whiskey, bot selling
for twenty bucks a swallow, i am
the essence of powwow , i am
fancydancers in flannel, i am host drum
amplified, iam you
don’t come back and leave me
the last hard drink.I am
th essence of powwow, iamthe dream
you lace your shoes with, i am
the lust between your toes, i am
the memory you feel across the bottom
of your feet when ever you walk too close
Sherman Alexie - “I Am the Essence of Powwow” from The Native American Broadcasting System
Like it or not, the film industry is mainly run by men and men aren’t the best at seeing past appearances. If they see me with chapped lips, beat-up face and wool hat, they’re never going to cast me in a womanly, feminine role. Men are stupid when it comes to things like that.
