Looking for teachers near Denver.
Also, are "white people" welcome to Indian celebrations?

I thinks so...as long as you bring a peace-pipe and some furs to trade.

Hey Nada,

Don't be offended - if you check out some of the other posts you'll see that we're one big goofy family.

I don't know of any teachers in your area, but if I can find one in Iowa you should be able to find one in Denver. I'd suggest posting something at the local Indian restaurants or groceries. If there is a "Friends of India" association out there you might want to check them out - that's who put me in touch with my teacher.

I haven't been to any Indian celebrations myself, but most Indians that I know are flattered when others are interested in their culture.

Hope this helps! Enjoy CO (I grew up in Greeley.)

Yeah, that's the trouble with email and the net, we can't hear the inflectionsand such. Emoticons help only a little. I used to CAPITALZE everything until I found out it was considered yelling.

There's `sposed to be a independence social nearby, I thoughtI'd look there for some contacts.

Thanks for your help and suggestions.
