  • Singing 4 your supper...

    Over the past five years, I've noticed a trend, at least among the Midwest States, where pow-wow committees are hiring only 1-2 drums to carry a pow-wow. In addition, these pow-wow committees ask a drum to travel, in some cases 1-2 states distance for an "honorarium" of $300-to maybe $500.

    I know we all say: "It's not all about the money--but man..gas, lodging and food, especially for a full crew of singers, doesn't come cheap.

    What do U all think?

        This is kinda a funny thread. Sorry *L *cough *cough



        Traditional Ceremonial Singers all over INDIAN COUNTRY sing for 3 to 4 days or nights using just one drum. They don't have the luxury that powwow singers have by using a microphone/speakers/amplifiers to enhance their voices.


        I rarely hear these singers complain or worry about money...

        Hmmmmmmm?

        Powwows will continue to evolve in many directions. It is inevitable.

          To get a true picture of your purpose in life, you only get the whole picture when you listen with your mind, your ears and your heart. This way The Creator has a direct connection with you and only you...no outside interference.

          When you follow the will of IT that created you, understanding that your purpose is not for you...but for IT and all that IT has created, there can be no wrong except failure to be obedient. Only then do we jeopardize the gifts we are given.

          Its not the final destination that defines us, rather the journey taken!

                    Yes..I agree ceremonial singing is different...it doesn't matter the cost or distance. This funny little thread, as is the case with my other threads, is to promote discussion and in this case some laughter. The thread was meant to be half serious--thank-you for your comments---I was wondering if you were going to reply or not? I look forward to reading your various posts! Sincerely, the Pow-wow Chummie-Niwiwan.

                      Hey,

                      This thread is directed to all people on pow-wow committees around the great lakes, and to anyone who is interested as well. How come next to nobody reconizes singing around here as being 2 different styles? Contemp and straight. And for those who run the contests or those who...

                      A LOT of people record audio and/or video at powwows; perhaps mostly for personal use, but we really don't know in all cases where each video is going or if it may appear for sale somewhere. There are some recorders are very obviously commercial; they bought huge $2500 high resolution video cameras...

                      by billyjoejimbob
                      Being on the east coast, I have seen my share of strange things at powwows. Since Im a singer, I will focus on THE DRUM.

                      There are a bunch of strange drums in the east. You know who Im talking about. Those drums that sing and hit the drum but you dont know if its northern or southern....

                      Just wondering about eastern powwows?
                      by off the top
                      I noticed that there are alot of powwows on the eastern seaboard from Florida up to Maine. I was just wondering if there is a need for these powwow committees to expand their knowledge of drum groups who are willing to travel and attend their powwows. Its just that I've noticed alot of the same drums...

                      Drum Contest v. Drum Split
                      by Guest
                      What does everyone prefer? Drum contests or a drum split where all drums who show up and sing the weekend get an equal split? I like the split because everyone who sings gets something and that is the way it should be in my opinion. Just curious as to what everyone thinks.
