    Today, I was asked to sing a special song at a memorial. Luckily, I have a father who I am able to call and clarify songs for many occasions. I have also been blessed to learn songs, style and protocol from many great northern and southern singers.

    Who encouraged you to come to the drum?

    Who taught you how to sing?

    Who do you go to for information and advice?

    Who has helped you with singing on the powwow trail?
    Powwows will continue to evolve in many directions. It is inevitable.

    "She also has a very soft skin. The only trouble with snake women is they copulate with horses, which makes them strange to me. She say's she doesn't. That's why I call her "Doesn't Like Horses". But, of course, she's lying."
