honor beats

what is the significance of the honor beats in a song, and why do the ladies bow down during this part of the song?

ive heard different things from different tribes, just wondering what you guys thought.

pinkL,

This question has been asked before.

AhdayEveryday gave a good explanation of why this is done among her people. You might try looking for it in the archives.

Like yourself, I have asked different tribes why they do this.
