Two 90 year old Ojibwe men, Joe and Sam, have been friends all their lives. It seems Sam is dying, so Joe comes to visit him. "Sam," says Joe, "You know how we both have loved to sing and dance all our lives. Sam, you have to do me one favor. When you go, somehow you've got to tell me if there are powwows in Heaven."

Sam looks up at Joe from his deathbed and says, "Joe, you've been my friend for many years. This favor I'll do for you, my brother." And with that, Sam passes on.

It is near midnight a couple days later. Joe is sound asleep when he hears a distant voice calling out to him, "Hey Joe... Joe..."

Joe sits up suddenly and asks, "Who is it? Who is calling me?"

"Joe, it's me, Sam."

"Come on now. You're not Sam. Sam died."

"I'm telling you," the voice said, "It's me, Sam!

"Sam, is that really you? Where are you?"

"I'm in Heaven," says Sam, "And I've got good news and I've got bad news."

"Tell me the good news first," says Joe.

"The good news," says Sam, "Is that there are powwows in Heaven. You should see them! The grand entries are awesome!"

"Wow!, says Joe, "That's wonderful! Now, what's the bad news?"

"They've got you down as the headliner for Saturday night!"
