“Like this.” Joe Bointy: “This year, Dwight
White Buffalo, the Barefoot Powwow Chairman,
asked me to be the head dancer for this year’s powwow. He and I have been friends,
oh, for 20-plus, maybe going on 30 years. He calls me his brother. And he is my little brother and
I’m his older brother. So, when he asked me
to do this favor, I gladly accepted it.” ♪[ MUSIC ]♪ Joe Bointi: “War dancing is hard
work, by the way. It’s almost, ahh, I kind of

just get out there and dance, take part and enjoy youself.” Joe Bointi: “You know. So, I
always think about that.” ♪ [ MUSIC ] ♪
