There are songs that are restricted as to who can sing them. Ponca say that the songs are put into the drum. If say a family song has not been put in the drum, it will be restricted to only certain singers. The Ponca have a hard time with people recording songs that are sung at dances without the proper ok's. This some times includes their own people. Learn as much about a song before you sing it. Hope this helps. It is not easy. Takes a lot of years to half-way know enough and you never stop learning.
