    "Cree: are by far the most numerous single North American Indian group in Canada, including about 200,000 people today. Their traditional territory extends from Quebec all the way to Alberta. The Cree language has the most speakers of any aboriginal language in Canada today (92,630 according to the 2001 census)."

    And that's not counting the Crees in the United States.

    I think everybody can sing...but I voted for sioux= lakota, dakota & nakoda..b/c almost every drum group out there has sung a 'sioux' song so thats how n why I voted. N I have to disagree about the sheer numbers of cree b/c there are nine sioux reservations in SD, one in NE, 4 groups in MN, 2 in ND, one in MT, the ones in several provinces in Canada. But, most of our drum groups don't travel the circuit but they do however still maintain the strong traditions of composing songs and carrying on the other traditional songs. (Songs that have words..)

    When it comes to Big Powwows the Crees always win
    You can't forget the fact that there are alot more big time Cree groups then any other tribe. The Cree people have a larger population base than the other tribes. They should have more wins just on their numbers alone.

    Yeah for reals, Oakdale rocks, a strong family they have and a good solid sounding drum.
    Then there's Mandaree, Thunder Butte, White Lodge, Eagle Whistles, Twin Buttes Singers, Newtown Singers, Short Bull, Dead Grass Society, Whiteshield, Four Bears, and quite a few more.
