NATIVE AMERICANS LIVED PEACEFULLY ON TURTLE ISLAND SINCE THE LAST ICE AGE, 2.6 MILLION YEARS AGO. FOUR HUNDRED YEARS AGO COLUMBUS DISCOVERED TURTLE ISLAND. COLUMBUS WAS FOLLOWED BY MORE IMMIGRANTS OVER THE PAST 100 – 300 YEARS WHO SUBSEQUENTLY WIPED OUT AND SLAUGHTERED THE 60 MILLION NATIVE INDIGENOUS LIVING PEACEFULLY IN TRIBES ACROSS TURTLE ISLAND, NOW CALLED THE AMERICAS. THE REMAINING FEW TRADITIONAL NATIVE INDIGENOUS WOMEN, CHILDREN AND MEN CONTINUE TO BE MURDERED AND DISAPPEAR AT AN ALARMING RATE BY UNIDENTIFIED PERSONS. OIL COMPANIES ARE THEIR GREATEST THREAT SINCE THEIR LANDS HAVE BEEN RITUALLY EXPLOITED AND TRESPASSED FOR PRECIOUS METALS AND PETROLEUM EXCAVATION. IT IS HIGH TIME TO ARREST THE HIT MEN AND THOSE WHO HAVE HIRED THEM FOR DECADES.

These traditions are only a guideline because traditions and etiquette vary so much from one circumstance to another, from one tribe to another. So proceed with caution at every dance, observe others and ask questions if you are not sure of what to do. Someone will be glad to tell you if they know. The Kiowa Gourd Dance is the traditional dance of the Ta-Pe-Go Warrior Society which was one of several men’s societies in the Kiowa Tribe. The word Tiah-pe-go refers in the past to two words, a bush called SKUNKBERRY and a BRAVE.
