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

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

AMEN!

SUTHERNWATERBIRD..."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."

I DONT BLAME HER I'M READY TO GO BACK TO MISSISSIPPI(which is not much better but, its home)

Damn SINGERDAD, tell us how you REALLY feel.

I tend to hate everyone for one reason or another. Everyone I know has done something that caused me to dislike them, but I deal with it. Some more than others. They probably think the same of me, so I dont care.

As for Alabama, if you have 2 teeth by choice and never made it thru high school and YEE HAW is in your vocabulary... Im gonna hate ya. :thumbsup:

Taco,

That Taw-Koy is a pbahbee of my cousin. The three of us used to sing 49 together at Stroud. That's where I discovered he had a voice. I help him out with songs so he sings them correctly.

Now he has his own drum group and host drums at powwows in his area.

I just checked our website. Thanks for notifying me it is down. I will contact our webmaster.

You guys get a bad rap probably because the pow wows in your state are so abysmal that most people assume that there isn't any talent there. I know I didn't see any when I was there. The drums I heard were HORRIBLE!! If you guys are good, then you should travel and get out of the state and make the rest of us aware of it. I'm not saying there isn't anyone in the state who can sing. I'm just saying I haven't heard anyone in the state who can sing.

I don't like publically trashing guys who really haven't done anything wrong other than being horrible singers so I'll PM you this information...that goes for anyone else interested. LOL

Kiwehnzii 02-16-2006 02:51 PM

I'll just take your word for it.

Singerdad,

I can see you're just calling it, as you see it.

I whole heartedly agree.

If you Alabama guys keep tootin' your own horns....

I'm glad you said this....it's very true. A lot of this happened with NC and the singers it has produced; Native & Non-Native.

Even if you can't get out of the state, or areas you are in, look for opportunities that come close. For me, singing in DC this past year was an excellent opportunity for me.

trapstar99 02-16-2006 07:58 PM

hey
the boyscouts ain't bad. and some of the people who sits with them arent boyscouts. like me ive been powwowing since i was a little kid, well young not little, lol. I just help them out bc there are a few who are cool guys. then others i cant stand. Yeah i agree with suthernwaterbird, its hard for them to get any respect, but you should get to know them first. they have fun. there are the hard headed ones in the group who never listens to anything you tell them. But in this case people think less of everybody. and yes alabama sucks. peace up Atown down. it's just how we do in the A. We stay toooooo hot.

firestarjosh 02-16-2006 11:26 PM

we are not ootin our horns just tired of people downing alabama

Kiwehnzii 02-16-2006 11:58 PM

danbear 02-17-2006 02:20 PM

well sometimes when i get lonely i bust out the banjo and play the them from deliverance and me and my hounddog sing the night away.

nativesweetie77 02-17-2006 06:59 PM

Gee Dan, I didn't know you had a hound dog or a banjo. you should really bring them to pow wow sometime. That might really liven up our crappy Alabama pow wows.

Oh yeah Mom says delieverence didn't take place in Alabama so you'll have to play something else. She suggests something by Skynard. Lol. Ask Josh he'll help ya sing Free Bird.

debbieyd 02-17-2006 07:42 PM

? ? ?
 
Some non-Indians can really shake it just as good as a full-blood, but as for singing, that remains to be heard yet I guess.

BrownHornet 02-21-2006 10:24 PM

Havent posted here in a few years. Surprised my name is still tossed around! Dont worry, ive all but quit singing.
