      Thatz what I heard too!!

      I also heard this. Apparently the person running the singing contest was a little unfair. I wasn't there. But this is just what the buzz is on the "moccasin telegraph". I'll stick to the midwest where the only Apache's I run into is some white dude with a-patchy beard!! Or everyday I come to work I see a-patchy parking lot!! Ayyee!! I know lame right?? I couldn't resist.....n-e-wayzzz, it happens all over. Pow-wow season is about ready to bust open. I'm sure there will be more Threads like this in the near future.
      ohhhh ennniiit??

          Pow-Wows are meant to have fun, and not be all down on it. Just cause Midnite tore it up, doesn't mean whoever has got to hate.
          Excuse me while I talk in my Native Wookie dialect language.

            i dont know of any rumors. i know i woulda scored midnight higher based on making people dance, song selection, and over all quality. they were way tighter, meaning there were no extra beats or sounds. i was sure they wrapped up another win but heard later they placed third.

            i dont know if the recorder crowd means anything. but they were in full force there..
            ummm they got whistled saturday and were the primary choice for russell standing rocks four grass dance specials. that says something... dont it?

            i aint even gonna downgrade anybody. but friday some drums were off. nice songs and all but..... well, i just leave it alone.
            thanks dad for showing me the way, teaching me the language, and not leaving my mother...*L*

                I was there a couple of years ago and noticed the head dance judge was doing some sketchy stuff too. They had people placing 1st and 2nd that didn't make grand entry or spot checks on Friday night. Every time this particular person is touching ballots unpredictable results are brought out. It's very strange.
                Work like you don't need money,
                Love like you've never been hurt,
                And dance like no one's watching.

                  Well, you can't win 'em all........unless you're talented like me. Just kidding.
                  It is so sad that a family can torn apart by something as simple as a wild pack of dogs.

                    same ol same ol - you can't win em all. just ask northern cree in toronto. or northern cree in north battleford. or wild horse in lethbridge. it just takes one drum judge to skew the results and a head drum judge to keep the ballot in the system and not regard it as spoiled....or one or two guys who miss drum roll call....or one guy to miss a lead or forget the song....

                      All I'm saying is that I heard that Tha Tribe and War Scout sounded really good, where Midnite Express could have sounded better, so I say congratulations to them. It's funny when a someone goes somewhere thinking that they have it easy, and then it' s just as easily taken away from them, so they have to make up rumors of contreversy to compensate for the fact that they simply got beat. Once again, congratulations to the winners. (and I heard Wild Rose sounded pretty good too)

                            you know its always going to be like this no matter where u go. competing for cash will overshadow the spirit of our ancestors. its sad to hear such statements whether its rumors or not...i'll always luv the songs no matter who sings em...i'll always luv the dancing no matter whos dancing...keep it real. thoughts and prayers go to all who are on the pow wow trail...travel safe.

                                Went to my first PowWow yesterday, (Saturday). Thought I'd tell you all what I thought about it. It was in TN, and I'm not going to say exactly where, because I don't want to hurt anybody's feelings in case they are on here too, but I must say that I was a bit disappointed. Part of that may have been...

                                So how were things on the rez? As far as Coconino H.S. a pretty good turnout, made it quite enjoyable.

                                Only results I know are the winners in the drum contest:
                                1. R-Krew
                                2. Rocky Park
                                3. Bear Shield

                                I know both drum groups have been out of the big picture for a while now but this isn't just another thread on not whether who is better but who YOU think deserves the most credit for bringing Contemporary music to what it is today.
