I am a:

1. Poor Dancer.
2. Have sat at a drum twice in my life.
3. Could not lead a stomp dance with a gun to my head.

In theory -- I am way too old to ever be a superior dancer Fancy Dancer -- I could still excel at all three but, then and now, I am too busy doing other things.

One of the great gifts of my life is that my family/parents never fostered those things as a definition for being Native. If it costs the same to go to Gathering of Nations or the National Air & Space Museum and you'd rather touch a moon rock?

They let me touch a moon rock.

I desire for my children to make decisions on their own about life but you can't make an informed one if you haven't experienced everything.

hey there ybh i dont think anybody sucks at singing or dancing..and who are you to judge anybody? are you the best singer or dancer to ever live? i dont care how bad you might think a singer is if you help him and everybody else does too then hes going to sound good. aint nobody there just to sing for you.. no maybe there trying there very best and you know what gods gonna see there efforts and be very pleased. same thing with dancing i got a relative whos got one leg and one fake leg he gets out there and gets after it. very inspiring to me. So i guess with all these people you brag about learning from the one thing you missed is dont act better than anybody else. sorry if that was harsh but maybe you needed to hear it

I've seen what you're saying....hmmm...but you can also see things like natives texting on cell phones and gossiping during inter-tribal ...while somebody like Isaiah Bob is always dancing hard like its a contest.


I personally like seeing drums with all singers in regalia, like...New Agency Singers...but it is not a common sight.


However people express themselves, as long as they use their gift or gifts sincerely.

If sincerity is the only gift they have, then bless them for getting out there because they feel the drum.

Zeke, you forgot to address your singing voice...

I sing so poorly that when I had a carload of children in a car pool, when they wouldn't get along, I would threaten to sing "You Are My Sunshine" in my usual LOUD off key voice until we had a "happy car." It is amazing how fast children can resolve their differences when someone is belting out that song...if it was really bad, I'd sing "Wind Beneath Your Wings."

Sometimes when we went out to eat at a restaurant, we had an unhappy table, and the whole restaurant got to hear me loudly sing until we had a "happy table." I know all the verses to "You are My Sunshine," but rarely did I ever make it to the third verse in a restaurant.

The thing is, everyone thinks my voice is terribly off key and awful...but to me, it sounds great! I sing whenever I can...and loud, and amazingly, people leave me alone!

As far as dancing, for my age, I think I'm pretty good...not that anyone has ever told me that before. I think I dance great! I dance whenever I can...and vigorously, and amazingly, people leave me alone!

Well i necessarily don't think anybody sucks at what they do. I know they're trying their best and i appreciate them if it's from the heart. If they needs improvement in whatever they do and they act like buttheads, i may have a little loss of respect for them but I won't say they suck. But what i really meant is that has anyone noticed if anyone does one thing better than tha other.

ybh sorry if it sounded like i was getting on to, i was but trying to say it in a good way too. If you have these gifts of singing and dancing then treat them as such. Dont question if this person is a better singer or dancer. be humble be humble be humble.you are way too young to try and nitpick other people on there singing and dancing abilities.be humble in everything you do. If you approach eveything like that in a good humble way then you gonna go far in everything you do. school work powwows nac all that. treat it good. Member you halfto live your life first.

Goods words.

On the same note, I saw a video of Young Buffalo Horse on YouTube. Sounded real good. Maybe it's a thing with old men, but I was kind of put off by the way the drum was dressed. Most of the singers had on baseball hats with their head down and dressed in t-shirts with a bunch of writing.

A nice white shirt goes a long way and the judges seeing your face helps.

Just an observation and saying it in a good way.
