Paw-paus/powwow/gatherings

First let’s start with the last? Gathering of the people. Usually when a ‘Traditions Native Elder’ speaks (Gathering).
It is because we are talking about something (Sacred), and gathering is saying “Not to be recorded, not for sale or stolen”!
And/or a powwow for our visiting public. Second and should be thinking first?
Paw-paus
We remind our visitors of the many tribes over in Indian country (Tribes west of the Mississippi river).
Did not have a Paw-paus. And our tribes over in the Native American area (Tribes east of the Mississippi river). Culture and ceremonies from tribe to tribe might differ at times?

Pow-wow’s
Talking only about the Native American area (Tribes east of the Mississippi river).
Our powwows explained in the links above, will also ‘Never have a fire in any circle’ if we are entertaining ‘young adults and/or children’ for obvious reasons?
The fire then goes back to ‘in the west of the circle for teaching’.
Intertribal gatherings or powwows also should not have a fire in any circle, because dancers dance for a reward of some kind (money).
Creator would never be in this circle!
Creator could be, if asked, over in the west of a circle?
