ditto.....


If it's a Greyhorse song.... any idea what album it was off of? Check out SOAR's website to see if they got the track listings, liner notes, or sound clips for any of the Greyhorse CDs.....

In looking at the words, its probaly a ponca song. Now I will add this, Greyhorse used ponca songs and made some tapes back in the late 70's or early 80's called the Contest os on. But a audio clip would help. This I am sure, it is probaly a ponca song, but not sure of the source.

Ehhh.... don't get ahead of yourself here. Jack used to compose songs w/ Ponca words, and the transcription fits his style of composition pretty well... he'd take a 3 or 4 word Ponca sentence and sing it over and over, then add in something about "wakan" or "Wakonda" then sing the first sentence 3 or 4 more times.....

hmmmmm..... Jack was a knowledgeable guy, but sometimes he made people scratch their heads and say "HUH?"....

The CD's the Greyhorse put out on SOAR have many songs w/ Ponca words (whether they're Ponca songs is a bit different matter.....)

"Wakonda" means "creator" or "great mystery" or "god."

If i am correct you might b talking about a song that grey hose sings, and the song was composed by Louie Sheridan. the song is a veteran song talks about here come the warriors or the warriors are coming, its been a while hope that helps.

The world in the song are O maha words so be careful not to mix them up with another tribe.

What KB is talking about here when he references to "not mix them up with another tribe"...there are several Oklahoma tribes that are related...linguistically speaking, related. This means that not only are their language similar, but also their ways. Ponca and O maha....yeah....lets not get them confused, not even with Otoe, Kaw, Quapaw.....

Do I need to continue?

Whenever I hear that word, it reminds me of Buckwheat on Lil' Rascals.

Alphalpha : Buckwheat, you go guard the door so the girls can't get into our clubhouse.
Buckwheat : (with thumb and index finger touching and other fingers extended) OOKEETAY!
