Hey, I've found a couple snow dances online, some with the intention
of canceling school if you have a test, and one I think you'd be
interested in. It's the snow dance that they perform at Hakuba
mountain to make it snow. Apparently they've got a documented blizzard
out of it, but you might need a couple people to pull it off, and the
more the better. Enjoy, and good luck!

It might sound a bit funny - but I was looking for something a bit
more insightfull than from just typing in 'snow dance' - anything

Thanks though

Did you read the two articles on snow dancing? They're two different
snow dances. As for peripheral information that I found along the way,
last October, an inter-tribal Snow Dance Festival took place at Lake
Tahoe. Not much was listed about the event other than a phone number
800-468-2463 which you could call to possibly get in touch with the
organizers, and possibly some of the tribal performers. Off of another
site, I found the following information:

Linda Bender of the Incline Village/Crystal Bay Lodging Association,
for her work as co-chair of the Snow Dance, a 2-day family event held
the first weekend in October at Lake Tahoe that involves Native
Americans who dance in regalia and pray for snow in the Indian
tradition. Delaine Spilsbury, chair of the Indian Territory, presented
the award. The Indian Territory includes all of Nevada.

The Piute Indians were called upon on the eve of the 1960 Winter Games
to bring much needed snow to Squaw Valley, California (link below).

But other than the slightly humorous liks that I found, I did not see
any how-to for traditional Indian tribal snow dances, just mentions
and festivals. Hope this helps!

I think it is unreasonable to pay only $2.00, receive what I thought
was a more than adequate answer, and then harass the reseacher for not
doing more. Just an opinion.

Fair enough - but even though I paid only $2.00 this is a service
which is providing more insight than your average person can glen, by
typing two words into Google. I typed in those words - and came up
with the first 3 links.
Just an opinion.
Thanks though to skermit-ga.
