    I have the Singing Contest Covered!

    It wasn't a bad pow-wow. The singing was good and there were quite a few dancers. They did have Nothern and Southern Singing Contest. Here is the breakdown....

    1. Bear Heart
    2. Hay-lush-ka(spellling?? sorry guyz)
    3. Whitetail
    4. Clear Water
    5. Medicine River

    I thought it was nice that the Committee did give 4th and 5th place in the southern contest to a couple of visiting drums that were in the nothern catagory. Medicine River was a small group of young men, not sure where from, but they sang with a lot of heart. the committee let them sing their contest song's and everything to encourage them. man, they tore up a couple songs pretty good. LOL gotta give it up to those young guys. i know there are a lot of singer's out there that had humble beginings like that. even the MC's were teasing them. But it was all good. When they announced them for fifth there were jumping all over the place and one even did cart wheels. Anywayz....had me laffing.......

    1. Eagle Feather
    2. Smokey Town
    3. The Bucks
    4. Pipestone
    5. Mandaree

    The Singing Rules were pretty stict. Especially the one on having all the drums keep five singers at the drum at all times. I think this is where some of the groups lost points. Not sure though. Just my own thinking.

    Not sure of the contest. I remember some but not all of them. So I hope someone can post them up soon.

        All I remember is that Crystal Cleveland got first in womens fancy and Amber Cleveland got third. Mostly cause I was busy with my daughter at that time.

              Hey powwow committee!

              Why don't you just invite the certain dancers, drums, and head staff that you want to pay?

              If you look in your program booklet you see the same dancers names every year since 95. It's gets a little lame. Sure they are great dancers but there are other...
