FESTIVAL AND GATHERING ETIQUETTE

PLEASE DO

1. Please stand and remove your hat whenever the Honor Guard Flags is brought into or taken from the Arena, and at all times when instructed by

the Master of Ceremonies.

2. Please feel free to join in the Intertribal Dancing. Listen carefully to the Master of Ceremonies. He will tell you when visitors are permitted to enter

the Arena and join the dancing. At all other times, please respect the sacredness of the Arena by not entering it.

PLEASE DON'T

1. Please do not randomly walk, run, or play in the Dancer's Arena.

2. Please do not point with a finger, particularly the index finger, to an individual, as  it is impolite. It is best to indicate a person by pointing with

the eyes or a head nod.

3. Please do not touch any feather that has fallen to the ground. Guard it and notify a festival official. This is because a ceremony must be performed to recover the fallen feather. THIS CEREMONY MUST NOT BE PHOTOGRAPHED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.

4. Please do not touch any of the regalia of the dancers. Regalia are any clothing, jewelry, or other ornamental articles worn by the dancers. Many

of these are fragile and some are very old and have been handed down

from ancestors.

5. Please do not tape songs, unless the head singer of a Drum gives

permission. Even if permission has been granted, the Master of Ceremonies may request that specific songs not be recorded.

6. Please do not take a photograph of or videotape any individual inside or outside of the Arena without first getting permission from that person. Obtaining a person's permission is a respectful recognition of that

person's dignity.

7. ALCOHOL AND DRUGS ARE NOT ALLOWED AT FESTIVALS OR GATHERINGS. VIOLATORS WILL BE REMOVED.
