    Is it possible for someone not of Gourd Clan/Society to compose a Gourd Dance Song?

    I've heard of situations where some notible (sp?) people....and they weren't recognized.

    What do you say?

      Hey thanks for the encouragement. I've got something that would fit very well during the time when we sing Mustang Songs. Will have to see how it "hashes out".

            No....I wasn't saying what I got "IS" a mustang song....I wouldn't dare try to say that was a Mustang Song...just that it has qualities like a mustang song.

                  It costs me more in fines for off-beats than I spend on 'Indian Tacos" when I sit at the drum...so, I was hoping that someone like "WhoMe" would respond to this thread.

                  But, I was also wanting to know how it was viewed for others to compose Gourd Dance songs.

                  WhoMe, being a Kiowa singer and Gourd Clan member...I was hoping he'd post a thought.

                  What is the protocol for non-Kiowa Gourd Dance songs, WhoMe?

                  Some of us non-singers would like to know, too.

                  Thanks in advance.
