Singer of non native origin
 
What do you think you you see non native singers?

I have seen some and they didn't have the feel of an NDN singer lack the soul... what do ya think bout that? is it cool if they can jam? Have you seen some good ones?

Non-Native Singers
 
I have heard a few really good white guys. The ones I have heard really do understand and sing from the heart. I have also heard those groups out-there who just sing to sing. I guess it just depends on who it is.

Taco,

We have one guy from the midwest who we pick-up when we head east. This guy is not Indian. He has blonde hair but can pack a whollup! He's my bro.

He has sung with our drum group and represented well at the powwow in LeRoy, Illinois, that you and I were at. He has also sung with us at the Mohegan Sun Powwow CT, Hinkley MN, Winnipeg MAN, U of Michigan powwow and Memphis TN and a bunch of smaller dances.

My bro is good and doesn't mess up, when its time to produce.

This guy name of Joe Liles who used to live in Minnesota was pretty good.

I think he lives in N. or S. Carolina now.

not cool
 
You know, I was not talking about myself this time guys. Just because I am white does not mean every comment about white people pertains to me. There other white guys around here.

Kiwehnzii 02-14-2006 06:04 PM

Sorry guy, I forgot.

you're from the Cherokee tribe of Northeast Alabama.

Brackett481 02-14-2006 06:42 PM

What do you have against me? I mean come on guys, IS it because I am White?

billyjoejimbob 02-14-2006 06:50 PM

Brackett481 02-14-2006 06:54 PM

Oh, OK, Why didnt you say so to begin with.

Not that I don't like Alabama, but hey, I guess there has to be something to hate me for...at least you only chose my home state...lol

Ok, Dan You've been hanging around us 2 long. Lol. i think You've finally lost it.
Seriously though. I've met a lot of non- natives out on the circuit who are really great singers and drummers. It's not about % it's about what is in your heart. I don't care if you're full blood. If your heart is not in what you're doing then you are not going to sound as good.Hopefully we are all there for the same reasons no matter how much native blood we do or don't have.

I've gone to two pow wows in Alabama, and they were the worst bunch of crap I've ever seen LOL :hysterica I'll never go back...I'm not just talking about their pow wows...I mean the whole state...couldn't pay me...too redneck...too backward...too confederate flaggy LOL Yeah, Alabama sucks! :gun_band: :us-alabam

Brackett481 02-15-2006 11:07 AM

Well, At least there is not any prejudice here at powwows.com. A place where natives and like-minded white people can get together and talk about dancing, singing and just have a gret time living and learning.

:lol:
:hysterica
dam guy you're cold blooded. lol. That's how you feel though. But see I know these alabama guyz and there ok. but I can't stand how the boyscouts have all those rules. It's ridiculous. Everytime they leave the drum you have to SIGN IN AND OUT? What kinda bs is that? I mean you guyz can't expect to get any respect with that. Just get used to it, because as long as your with that boyscout stuff, yall are gonna get ragged. That's just the way it is. And maybe a couple in the group got a voice, but yall still got a long way to go, before people will start calling you ndn. And it's not gonna happen while you have a dam badge on your shirt...I'm just sayin, I'm not that dark myself, but I have been NdN for the last 17 years. And it's takin me this long to earn what I got and that ain't much. So I think yall need to grow up with this boyscout bs. I think it's rather immature myself. But this aint an attack, so don't come back with a defense.

Wojapi4Me 02-15-2006 11:19 AM

I'm not prejudice...I just hate Alabama LOL Missouri's no picnic either...I try to be an equal opportunity offender :hysterica

Actually, I think there's a pretty good flow of conversation and information here. Just don't be too thin-skinned. :thumbsup:

suthernwaterbird 02-15-2006 11:49 AM

Hell my mom left the powwow and drove all the way to atlanta for labor so she wouldn't have my lil bro in alabama.
