Most Humble Drum Groups

Who do you think is the most humble drum groups? The drum groups that rock the house, but still are down to earth people who treat other singers with equal respect. I've seen alot of drums that get successful, and forget what it was like starting out, and think they are better than everyone else.
Here's what I think......
1. Southern Cree- down to earth jammin' drum group
2. Pipestone- real freindly guys, good attitude
3. High Noon- cool as it gets

Now what do YOU think?

Gotta agree with ya on Southern Cree and Pipestone. The Southern Cree guys seem really courteous whenever I see them.

A couple of years ago I shared a story about how cool the Pipestone guys were towards my son.

Another vote for Pipestone here - they are so friendly and not stuck up. They are jokers too.
Another 2 here in WA state:
Windy Point
Nation Singers

I like Pipestone Creek! A few years ago, I asked some of the drum group if they had any CD's for sale and they said they didn't have any more :(. So I was minding my own business and their lead singer (I forgot his name, sorry) came up to me and gave me one of their tapes, for free. I thought that was pretty cool and very nice of them/him.

I too have to say that Southern Cree And Pipe Stone Creek are some of the most humble guys that I know. They sure helped the starblanket boys back in the day when we didn't know anything about Pow-wow singing. I have lots of respect for these guys on both these drum groups for taking us under there wings helping us out...

I would have to say pipestone, meskwaki nation, and youngbird. Im not sayin that they are the most or the only ones, just the ones that I have met through my travels and have shown respect to and influenced my drum in a very positive way.

I'm glad to hear about humble drums. There has been a few representatives of drums here on the internet that have been talking shyt about other drums. It looks BAD. I hope I never had a song by any of those nameless drums.

Northern Wind Singers

Northern Wind Singers from Lake of the Woods Ontario.

Gabe Derosier and his guys are the nicest. They are very respectful and always ready to rock the house....

I don't really know of entire groups that are humble, but there are some pretty good guys who I've met that are some "down to earth guys".

One particular gentleman comes to mind. He's now passed away and he sang with Red Bull, Mosquito Singers and other groups. We never crossed paths very much, but when we did, we always had a good visit. He shared songs with me that he had made and always offered me a drink of coffee or pop. He sang songs into my recorder that he wanted me to have. A good guy. A good friend.

Art Moosiman is missed by many people.

Unhappy

I dance mainly in the southeast and Cozads were the only ones to announce that their drum was "closed" to other singers. Too bad, some of their cousins were in the crowd and didn't go over and talk to them after that.

humble groups

i can say this much about closeing the drum if you are host and allow anyone to pull up a chair you are takeing a chance on this persons ability and if they mess up you as the host takes the blame and pay the price as for cozad i have seen them open their drum and welcome singers and if they closed it larry and the crew had a perfect right to do this as all drums do some drums are allways closed to nonmembers

I agree....have to give mad props to SIZZORTAIL!!! Now some of the members are like family to me and my son. I have a deep respect for those drums who have given my lil tiny totter drumsticks (pipestone, two thumbs up), given him songs (Redhouse and members of Green River), and of course all my nephews and sister on Calling Eagle. Pipestone Creek is definitely a humble drum and so is Southern Thunder. I could go on with a list of humble drums and dancers. So its nice to see there are people with good strong generous hearts out there which makes powwowing all the more better. Keep it up guys cuz its what you give teaches my son about respect and humbleness. I try to teach my son to give 1/2 his tiny tot money or winnings even if its only a dollar to the drum that sang his song. Cuz dancing is not dancing without those drums and the songs they sing. Keep it up.....thats why we love to powwow. :D
