i disagree....singing contests give the singers a chance to see if all they're hard work paid off.....i know for me it is cool to see who "won" on any given weekend..... and since the advent of Schemitzun look at the sheer number of quality drum groups that are out there now and that only benefits the dancers. there are still a number of traditional powwows you can attend if you do not want to participate in a drum contest but for alot of drums it is their preference to compete. just look at any contest and the competing drums are singing their hearts out for both the dancers and for a chance to say they are champion singers which is something to be proud of. most host drums no matter how good they are just don't sing as hard as the competing groups and thats just the way it usually is....probably because of lack of pressure.........but thats only my opinion
