    If they are lucky that might pay for their gas. But with the gas prices now--I highly doubt it.lol

    I've seen some of the drums after a pow wow where the split was like $30 a person. That's not all the time, but I have seen it a few times. And if they are not the host drum: get the hotel rooms and that, the cost for food and anything else can go over that fast. I know several of the people that I know who are on drums also compete in dancing, that's why they do that.

    I've heard people complain "They're on the drum, they're already getting paid. Now they want more." No, it's not always about that, but sometimes the expense to get from one place to another.lol

      which is why we travel to powwow no more 3 hours from where we are.....and besides we know quite a bit of people so we stay at their homes, or pack tents and look someone up to use their showers at their hotels.....theres always a way to remain frugal.....and for food, we take ice chests full of it and a little hibachi....*L*.....believe me food cooked yourself is always good....and soemtimes we recieve honoraiums which we use to get food.....and if you want something else you best bring your own money.....other than that, with us the understanding is there that money off of a drum is nothing, which is why we bring along extra for after powwow activities.....some 49, others find new baby mommas.....LOL!!!.....

        Yep, that's what the ones that I know do too. Many times some of my friends and extended family will camp with me, I always bring extra food--not a whole lot--but enough, and I wind up feeding extra people. We wind up with a huge camp.lol

          I can care less if you agree or not. You are probablyreally young or haven't been raised in the arena, or you would have understood what I wrote. The clip attached is an example of what I was trying to convey, clean clothes, button down shirts, I don't see anyone in shorts or flip flops. It's not like this any more. Just walk around the drums at any powwow in '2008 and you lose a lot of how it used to be. Not every drum, but about 50%. I for one hate losing our ways and one of those ways is the singers appearance and behavior around our drums. Let's try to keep it real.

            to an opinion or two....I understood what you wrote....Be careful when you assume something though...You'd be suprised....None the less I've seen a number of singers dress in a number of ways in my 30 years of singing....However I do care and thats why I said what i said....We are all entitled to our opinions....I just felt it was a lil extreme as far as what you said.....Oh and just as a side bar....2 of my Uncles are singing in the Denver clip....Small world huh?

                                  I'll start out by saying the usual things were good about this powwow: the drums and the dancers. It's them that ultimately make or break a powwow, for the most part. There were some really great specials and the dancers really put up a good competition. The weather was mild, and it was not unbearably...
