Brackett,

Good question!



There have always been women's ceremonial drums who sang/sing for women's ceremonial societies, clans and groups.

Powwows are NOT spiritual ceremonies.

There is a differenciation. (In most tribal specific spiritual ceremonies, recording devices are not allowed and what takes place inside spiritual ceremonies is not talked about "in public." On the flip side, at most powwows, recording devices ARE allowed and information talked about on powwows.com *L).

My point is, "women's ceremonial drums and women's powwow drums are two different types of drums." Also. "Tribal women's ceremonial songs and powwow songs sung by women - are also two different entities (as are apples and oranges)."

Different regions are more tolerant of women's drums than others. The Pacific Northwest is one of the most tolerable regions of women's powwow drums. The Plains is the least tolerable of women's powwow drums.


I hope this helps.
