Actually, if you are not in a drum setting where they put all the drums in the middle, then you sit on the inner perimeter of the circle. Some powwows, north and south have all drums either in the center or all drums on the inner perimenter of the dance circle.

Some southern powwows have both drums in the middle and on the outside.

Another observation that I have noticed is that southern drums have conformed to singing "4 times through" on contest songs. This was not the case 20 years ago when southern contest songs were sung only 3 times through with a "warm up song" preceeding the contest song.
