Yup, last night at PALA Powwow, Stoney Park got whistled 12 times by 4 Carriers.

People were filming, and so some Native women jumped up and warned them to stop filming.

Then one Native dude kept filming with his cell phone, and one of the Native ladies shoved him back away from the drum.

A couple of minutes later, the MC actually put over the sound system, "Please no photos or video of this whistled song"

But Natives right behind the drum were laughing, joking, texting, etc ..... so, life goes on.



I wonder how "reverent" the 49 was later that night
