Hi

Thanks Acey,

Money is not really important, secondary actually.
I know my group will sing pretty much anywhere we're asked to go, its just that our expenses take a hefty toll. And there are groups out there with up to 15 singers. I think alot of committees are stuck in the same old mode, ya know, the same quoted prices for various jobs at the pow-wow. The cost of living is ever increasing, and committees have to respect that. Not all pow-wow people are 9 to 5's, and that shouldn't be held against them. For those Indians who are lucky to have jobs, that still doesn't take away from the fact that is costs money to travel. And any so-called traditionalist that would dispute this obviously doesn't know the meaning of hard-*** work and dedication. You know, there are a few people out there who are totally traditional, and talented at the same time. There always seems to be a really good singer, who is a drunk, or there is somebody who is a traditionalist who doesn't know jack about pow-wows, but thinks they do.

Know what I mean....?:)
