The second song they stand and some dance a little dance in place. Third song the dancers spread out with at least one dancer in each of the 4 directional corners (n,e,w,and south). I have seen dancers "dance" toward the center after the drum does a hard "honor" stroke or series of hard hits. They keep moving closer toward the center until the song ends and then they (dancers) back up to the outside of the arena and begin again. Buffalo dance! Seldom do they do them out here and never have I heard a "Wolf" howl at the end of a song.
