spirit woman

undefinedI was told as a young boy. If you can hear a woman singing with the men when only men are singing it is a spirit woman. This is a good thing. spirit woman can only be heard when the music is good. We can hear spirit woman on some of our bear claw songs. on the C.D. going home.
