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 energy......no great feeling.
I am no Sexist or anything of prejudice, but I think women belong behind the drum.

Aho!
