(whistled)?
 
What does it mean when a song has in parenthesis that it's whistled? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vqGqI1fps-8

It means that a *whistle carrier comes up to the edge of the drum and blows his whistle for the drum to sing 4 more leads/verses. For some reason the video you posted does not show the whistle carrier. You can only hear his whistle being blown at the end of the video.

*There is controversy in modern powwows on who has the right to blow whistles at a powwow. In olden times it was a honored position in grass dance and warrior societies. Not everyone had this right. Today, times change and the lines of tradition have been blurred.

Record or not record a whistled song? I could care less if someone records a whistled song.
At a vendors stand you can buy a powwow cd with whistled songs on them.
