    Not sure this is the best "competition" to hold, since it is incredibly subjective!

    my two cents...

    I agree with LW, can't we just discuss these groups, why does it have to be a competition? I don't mean to offend anyone, but some of these groups from the 70s like Porcupine for example, most of the young folks on this board have no idea how great they were. And the growth and change of singing varied from region to region. I mean, look at Chiniki Lake in the early 80s, they brought word songs back in ALberta and outward. That was HUGE! Blacklodge, Sun Eagle, Blackstone, led the new wave of recordings from Canyon Records. GRoups like Mandaree have been around for generations. REd Earth was one of the first intertribal groups (although they were Meskwaki centered) that traveled alot and there sound was amazing. For these youngsters Red Bull is a drink. Its just like trying to pick the greatest of anything, Michael Jordan was the best bball player, better than Kobe, better than LeBron or Wilt. Discuss.

    My money, what I've heard live in person, from the late 70s through today, Stoney Park. It was a pleasure to hear them again at the Manitoahbee dance last November.
