Depends on the part of the country.

In California, they dance around in the circle and when it gets to the roller coaster part, for lack of a better term, the 'gyrate' their hips.

On the east coast (think Stoney Creek), Someone leads the Mamba line and they duck on the roller coaster part.

Same way with the two-step.

West coast, it's danced like a Rabbit Dance.

East coast it's NDN follow the leader. lol

This is Stoney Creek. I knew some of their grandfathers. They told me they were injuns. Who was I to doubt them.

Howdy, good to see familiar peeps here!

I think Arlie Neskahi made the Rollercoaster song, pretty sure. It is sung each year at the Wildhorse Powwow in Lawndale, CA where Arlie is MC.

I've seen it at other powwows in So Cal, but not outside of Calif...yet.

I think Arlie Neskahi made the Rollercoaster song, pretty sure. It is sung each year at the Wildhorse Powwow in Lawndale, CA where Arlie is MC.
I haven't seen it sung like Arlie's original Rollercoaster...outside of Calif...so far...

Hi all Relatives,

I will tell the story of what is now called the Roller Coaster Song. I was traveling back from Bismark powwow back to Oregon around 1985, about 3am in the morning, somewhere in Idaho. Trying to stay awake, I was recording ideas for songs on my cassette tape player(for you younger kids, google it). Then I thought about how at supper break many times children would come out on the arena and run and play. I always liked to see them having fun and feeling free to enjoy one another. I said to myself, these children need a song... Within a few minutes of listening inside, the tune began to emerge. I wanted something that was a bit quirky that would make children smile and tease them a little. Hence, the bending of the melody & vocables. It sounded fun, but... would people think it was too "out there"?? LOL, I kept that recording for a few years, UNTIL...
We were singing at a powwow at the White Swan Pavillion on the Yakama Reservation in Washington state, when they asked us to sing the song for the finalists in their Clown Dance competition. BINGO!! Now was the time! I told my singers I have the perfect song... They learned it pretty quickly and we busted it out for the finals of the Clown Dance contest. For those who have never seen one, it's like a masquerade of powwow dancing styles, genders, ages and characters. It can be quire HILARIOUS as you can imagine. Well, nobody had heard such a thing till then, I can remember the dancers looking over at the drum with that WIF?? expression, but soon many began to play with the bending melody. The song ended with lots of laughter and applause. For myself, I never called it Roller Coaster, but thought of it as a fun playful song about the spirit of children.
Not long after that Jay Begay shared with me that he sung that song at a powwow in British Columbia with his drumgroup, Cathedral Lakes, and the powwow MC said it sounded like you were riding a ROLLER COASTER. Well, the name stuck. Jay may remember the MC, but I was not there. The song took off and was soon recorded by Blacklodge Singers. To this day many people think it's a Blacklodge composition. AND, when I sing it. I sing it the way I first made it. Blacklodge changed it on their recording, so many people who now sing it, sing it that way. But, I still prefer to sing it my way, hehe.
While on the dance theatre later in the late 80's with the late master singer Bill Baker, he asked me about that song, if I had made it. I learned that he was at a powwow in ND that past summer and someone sang it and all the men dancers...when the song bent...would remove their hats and wave them in the air. He said it was lots of fun and it was good to know where the song was born. Then, after our shows while we were all having our late dinner at a restaurant, he would holler out my name. I would go to his table and he would reach out his hand offering my some money(usually a rolled up 20) and say, "Arlie, sing me that crazy song again!"
So, I first saw the hips sway MCing at a So Cal powwow after these young girls kept coming up to me asking for "the Roller Coaster Special". At first I just ignored them and they became quite persistent and irritated with me. I had no idea what the Roller Coaster Special was. I inquired with someone on the committee and they told me it was the Roller Coaster Song and everybody would come out and dance funny. OHHHHHhhhhh, okay, we made the announcement, I asked if any drums knew the song and people came out to dance. I believe it was Wildhorse Singers who sang it.
Then I watched as young and old, fancy and traditional came out on the floor and began to gyrate their hips to the bending of the song... I had the same WTF?? expression on my face I saw years before from the dancers. LOL
It has been fun to see this song travel and carry with it the spirit of childhood and play. May we always have that spirit with us and create safe and loving spaces for our beautiful children. Thank you the Holy People for these precious songs. Dance and have FUN!

Oh yeah. If you see me at a powwow somewheres and want me to record the original version of this song, I would be glad to do that for you. Our White Eagle Singers still sing this from time to time and we have learned to speed up or slow down the beat from time to time and to also stop drumming at the last bend and repeat the WO-OH, WO-OH, WO-OH, slowly then faster to finish the song. I crack up every time.

For the Generations,
Arlie Neskahi
Dine' Nation
White Eagle Singers
