Question Southern Style Dance/Song Forms

To clarify for the youth on our drum, what are the types of songs/dances that a southern style drum will normally be asked to sing for? The following is what we've seen so far on our travels:

Inter-tribals, War Dances, Memorial Songs, War Mother Songs, Veteran Songs, Sneak-ups, Ruffle Songs, Stop 'n' Go Trick songs, Men's straight songs, Trot Songs, Horse Stealing Songs, Grass Dance-both straight/Chicken Dance, Men's Fancy Feather, Women's Buckskin, Women's Cloth, Round Dances, Jingle Dress-both Straight song & Side-steps, Fancy Shawl--both straight/ Crow-hop songs, Honor Songs, Flag/Victory Songs, Traveling Songs, and of course Grand Entry songs....Did we miss any major types?

Please add any we need to know about!!! Thank-you!
