The advice is solid about going down to Oklahoma to learn songs. There are dances every single weekend in Carnegie and other surrounding communities.

There are some important things to consider when wanting to learn Kiowa songs. There are special songs that are to be sung at certain occasions. Again, please go down to Kiowa country and sit in at the center drum during a gourd dance session.

Just as long as you are Indian you are normally welcome to sit at the center drum during the winter benefit dances. Unfortunately, during the summer Kiowa Gourd Clan "CEREMONIES," only Kiowa men are allowed to sit around the drum.

To the Kiowa, the gourd dance IS a significant part of ceremonial history and way of life. It is not something to be played with. This is why many Kiowa people are so protective of it.

"Kgoh doe, High Yigh daw. Gyah tigh gyah."
