So there’s an event on my campus called “Swing and Sway, the Indian Way!”for Diversity Week. A few others (Natives) and I found that title somewhat mocking and inappropriate. We also wondered how there was a Native event on campus and those of us in American Indian Student Association didn’t know about it. I asked my professor if he knew why that title was chosen, because I saw that it was his drum group that is doing the event. (I guess he came up with the title) Apparently it’s a common saying amongst powwow MCs. The other students and I had never heard of it. He gave us a crap ton of sources and the history of the saying. But, to be honest, it still sounds wrong.
