I think you have a good list.

If you call yourself a southern drum you will be asked to have some good fancy dance songs. Consider making some of your own compositions to fit this category. The drum I mainly sing with has 7 fancy dance songs that are their own compositions.
We have used all 7 at some 3-day powwows.
Although I've never traveled further north than Queens, NY, I've never really had to experience singing a northern style song like the Jingle, Chicken, Duck & Dive, etc. However, if WhoMe is correct in his statement about some of the Canadian Pow Wows, then yes, it would be helpful to be familiar with them. What you do with it when you're called up for one like that is up to you and the Pow Wow Committee.

Its not the final destination that defines us, rather the journey taken!
