I don't think women should sing at the drum, and....obviously, neither do the majority of traditional singers & dancers.
Singing at a Bass drum sounds like a very bright Idea.
But Women singing on a Bass drum at a pow wow does not sound too wise.Because for one thing, Pow wow's are traditional.
And what dancer is going to blow a whistle for a Bass drum group of girls that sound like a bunch of Felines in heat?
Certainly not one of the right mind. About a month ago I went to a Pow wow in Chilliwak, B.C... And there was this group of women singers there singing at a BUFFALO hide drum, singing traditional songs, and when they sang for my Uncle dancing in Golden age Traditional, It was like there was no spirit, there was no great feeling.
I am no Sexist or anything of prejudice, but I think women belong behind the drum.
