My website at tripod is a blessing and a curse.
Because of this I will once again split my answer into two parts.
A blessing because my 1993 SNET website (Southern New England Telephone) company was sold and is no more.
My 1995 EarthLink was a great website except it is only using dial-up connection, so this is now the oldest of my websites.
So when questions are asked sooner or later it makes its way to this website.
The curse is that because that program was sold and I can no longer update it or answer questions on it, I will never know if the person asking the question will ever see my answer.
Not that I am by any stretch of the imagination an expert, they can at least read and compare answers?
Thank you to the person from City Cairo Al Qahirah Egypt
Asking the question
Why is it wrong calling an Indian circle an arena and why is the way in not a door?
To my websites
My Thesaurus calls an Arena~ stadium, show ground, sports ground, pitch, field, ring, dome, amphitheater.
I do not know if the people in India have a circle or if so what they might call it However, the question seems to be directed towards Native Americans because of the many websites that they looked it?
To answer this question and insure a complete understanding as to why this is important one must think ancestors and dig back into past websites and blogs.
OK so, remembering that Paw paus and Powwow belongs to the first people of this land and that I speak only from my teaching from elders around the New York, New England area, this ceremony does not belong to outsiders, if you are an outsider you cannot have it!
If you change it then at the moment that you do, it is no longer a Paw paus or a Powwow, it is a watered down gathering to make money for you, period!
