Well first off I don't think the drums get the respect we deserve. You think of drum contests, first place is like $3000, and then dance contest first for adults is like $1000 bucks. What is that? You have 10-13 guys trying to split that up. I mean sure it is a healthy enough cut, but some dancers can sit around all weekend, and just dance contest, get 1st and walk off with a GRAND.

But overall I think drum contests are better than a split to some extent. With me being a dancer and a singer, I can relate. I know I like to dance to better drums when I dance, but everyone does deserve a chance to sing, and they know what the outcome of the contest could be, and most drums know if they are just going to sing, or contend.

So keep the drum contests going strong, and you can expect good drums at your pow wow, even though they may only get about $300 per singer. Honorarium is good for a little cash though.
