Cool

Yeah, we've had some of the top drums in the US at our powwows, and most of them had women sitting at their drum. Not all, but most.

To Kahkahew:
You're right, the Indian people down here probably don't know what you're people teach about the drum. Maybe that's why they listen to their own elders. At an intertribal powwow, you can't force everyone to hold to YOUR traditions. You have that right in your own tribal powwows. I mean no disrespect, because you seem to be very knowledgeable of your tribe's ways, but if you think that all tribes must follow your traditions then you're blind to the history of Indian people. Take out a dictionary and look up the word BIGOT.
