this has been the biggest challenge of
my life,"Wild said. "There may not be
any physical marks on my body but
the ones on my soul must be so deep."
Wild thanked the attentive crowd
for supporting her and other survivors.
She also shared the best piece of ad-
vice she received after her assault.
"The pain you're feeling now -and
each time itcomesback-won'tbeas
bad as the time before:"
Students who helped organize the
Sexism in Advertising contest an-
nouncedthe"winners/losers.'Thefirst
place award was given to Adam's
Boots, which received about 60 per-
centof the 1,843 votes. The advertise-
ment that reads "An Acquired Taste"
features a fully-clothed woman
crouched down on the ground licking

boot tracks.
Although the march was only for
women, about 60 men stayed behind
for a rally of their own.
Speakers discussed the importance
of support for women who have been
assaulted.
After the march, every participant
was encouraged to return to City Hall
to sing, dance and celebrate both the
march and the survivors of sexual as-
sault. In addition, some students ven-
tured out to the Rock and painted it
with slogans.
LSA sophomore Laura Alantas,
who has helped to organize theeventin
the past, said the march is the most
positive experience she has had on
campus.
"I love the community of women
and the space they've created... where
women can discuss their demands for
changein attitudes, politics andbehav-
ior."

society. Wecouldall domore,"Wagner
said.
Rally participant Michael O'Neill
said, "I thought it was very brave of
the IFC to send a representative, and I
hopetheycontinue thatinfutureyears."
RC sophomore Aaron Ahlstrom
discussed his relationship with asexual
assault survivor.
"I've come to realize in the last
four months that I had sort of expected
myself to be the one to save her,"
Ahlstrom said.
Ahlstrom said he finally realized
he would never be able to take the
place of a counselor and help her for-
getthepain theassaulthadcausedher.

"The way she put it was, 'you have
so much taken from you - you just
can't give anymore,"' he said.
Arepresentative from Alternatives
to Domestic Aggression, said he was
dismayed by the turnout and the logic
of the preceding speeches.
"We can' tcompare the lack of close-
ness tomen toviolence againstwomen.
That's like comparing hand grenades
to hangnails," he said.
After asong from Corey Dolgon of
the HomelessAction Committee, LSA
sophomore Ryan Bradley spoke of his
transformation from a victim to a sur-
vivor of sexual assault.
Bradley said he became a survivor
when he recounted the details of his
assault at last year's Speak Out.
"I realized now I wasn't Ryan the
student. ... I was Ryan the survivor,"
Bradley said.

Members of the Sexual Assault Prevention Awareness Center announce
the winners/losers of the 9th anual Sexism in Advertising contest Saturday.

Many men attended the rally in
honor of women they know.
Ann Arbor resident Mike Lindau
said wanted to support friends who
marched and to find out what Take
Back the Night was about.
Ann Arbor resident Mike Blavitz
expressed confusion about the pur-

pose of the march.
"I'm here to supportmy girlfriend,
but I don't understand why men are
forbidden to march. Can't men walk
down the street? Twenty years from
now will they have a drive to Lan-
sing, and men will be banned from
the highway?"

Baxter is the author of the recently acclaimed
Shadow Play and a U-M faculty member.

Pow Wow
Continued from page 1
"We basically encourage them to
attain a higher education and tell them
what NASA does to help them get
through the system, which can be hard
being a minority," Martin said.
RackhamstudentDavidTrever,who
was also at the table, pointed out how
the gathering seemed to get larger every
year.
"It's great to see old friends that you
don't get a large chance to see all the
time," he said. "It's Natives coming
together doing what we do, enjoying it,
and keeping it going for future genera-
tions."
Booths located throughout the arena
offered everything from silver and tur-
quoise jewelry to beaded clothing to
herbal teas to cure nervous exhaustion
and aid with weight loss.
Traders came from various parts of
thecountry,includingAnnArbor'sown
Secreto Tropical-- which is known for
its Central and South American im-
ports. Store owners take pride in donat-
ing a portion of their profits to aid
indigenous rights groups in surround-
ing areas.
The main event, however, was the
dancing competitions taking place
throughout the afternoon. Dancers were
separated into categories by age and
style of dancing - such as traditional,
fancy and jingle dancing. They were
judged by other dancers from the Na-
tive American community on dancing
ability, completeness of outfit and
knowledge of songs - most of which

were performed by singers at the
celebration and accompanied by the
rhythms of drums.
"The outfits were all very ornate,"
said Paul Reading, an Engineering
junior who attended with a friend.
"By coming here you get areverence
for Native American culture, and can
see how proud everyone is to be
here."
Karen DeLeary was in charge of
keeping track of the hundreds of danc-
ers and tabulating the points they
earned during the competition. Prize
money was generated by donations
and ticket sales, and organizers ex-
pected to award almost $40,000 in
total to the top dancers.
"This is one of the firstpow wows
of the year so it's a real get-together
for everyone. There is some top danc-
ing and singing around here," she
said. "I think it's anhonortobepartof
this to bring all of these Indians to-
gether."
Originally from Walpole Island
Reservation in Ontario, but now a
resident of Detroit, DeLeary also
pointed out how one can miss being
around one's own people.
Martin best summed up the pur-
pose and energy found at the arena
this weekend by saying, "You don't
see any Native Americans like on the
John Wayne movies going oooh-
wooh at a pow wow. You just see
beautiful people, dances and outfits.
With this we can raise awareness in
this country to show a lot of people
that still think we live in teepee's that
we're your regular next door neigh-
bors and our culture is alive and well."
