Eagle bone whistles?
Eaglebone whistles are associated with ceremony and healing.

Should they be blown in the powwow arena?

Whatcha' think?

I have heard a few elders talk about this from time to time and the general consensus is an overwhelming "no".

Thanks. I have heard the same thing and wholeheartedly agree!

Depends on where you are and who the m.c. is....

If it is Jerry Dearly, he will castigate you for nothing even if you have sundanced umpteen times and did giveaway, etcs.

Other places like Rosebud, they do not care and whistles blown all the time on a good song.

Well I suppose if they were tuned to the Key of C.
