Native American Reenactor Area
Native American reenacting! WOW! The first time I ever saw any NA reenactors was at Military Through the Ages, way back in like 1994 or 95. I remember a group of reenactors sitting around a fire and off to the other side was this guy doing NA. Man! I about crapped, he looked really good and... REALLY serious! I think he had his face done half red and and half black... Just sitting there and looking at people. I will always remember this and though I talked to him in later times (and told him my reaction, much to his amusement), I will ALWAYS remember that night! If only more reenactors would do this impression and do it as good as this guy did...
One thing I have noticed while researching this Time/Area is that there is a real lack of Native American reenactor links. This is just wrong, I don't know why no one posts them, but we ARE! Right now, we have only a few, but over time, I am sure we will get more and more. Please visit the sites we have linked below and tell 'em you saw it on reenactor.Net ;-)
The Reenactor Consumer Guide, as it says on its home page:
It's a place for customers to rate their experiences with vendors servicing the reenacting community. Good or bad, let's hear it. Vendor Feedback Reviews are posted only after reviewed by the webmaster. Positive reviews are posted as they are submitted, negative reviews are posted 2 weeks after submission. During this time, the vendor is sent the review in order to provide them ample time to provide us with a rebuttal. After 2 weeks if no rebuttal is received the review is posted. Vendors who do not recall the buyer are encouraged to make contact and work out the problem.
Spread the word! The RCG has not only helped other reenacting time periods by spreading the word about bad vendors and experiences, but it has also really helped new vendors get discovered and their businesses grow. What it really means is that if a vendor screws someone, then it will be out there for everyone to see. And yes, vendors CAN rebut feedback. Be polite, no flames and be professional!
