    Selling of your peoples songs is not justified. Period.

    Which is worse..

    the one sharing these songs so they can be sold...

    the one selling them....

    the one buying them.....?

    Just wondering if there are any thoughts on these.

    Not only are these songs prayers, and not only do most of these songs belong to certain families, but these songs were a gift from the Creator and how dare some try to profit from this. My vote: NO! They MUST be learned and handed down, if they are not, then their time of use is no more and so be it.

    zeph,
    why confused look...
    thats the way i was taught that its okay for one drum to trade song with another but only certain songs...thats what i mean in a tradish manner...its not okay to record certain songs and its not okay to make money off of certain songs...personal gain thats what i call it when you make money off of songs..

    I'd have to say I'm in the same boat as the Senica Beauty... lol - I'd have to do one hell-of-a-sweat fit it's "wrong" to buy, sell, trade, or give away recordings of Peyote, Sundance, Inipi, and other mainly tribal religious music...

    I also have a lot of stuff that is American Indian Church hymns. A lot of the 5 Nations and others have doen Christian renditions of songs, or made Christian based Native American styled songs.

    I guess it would be a question of what religion, or faith is "right?"

    - Robby

    I record plenty of Peyote gourd songs at the gourds they have around my area... They don't really have a problem with it, as far as I know...

    Interesting questions that you pose in this and your other post. Initially the answer is no way! But the more comlplicated answer is "not directly." There is a way that such songs are passed along, in fact any song, and eachperson that learns it should have permission to sing it, and only use the song in the correct setting. When somone "gives" permission to sing a song, it is usually acceptable to " give"something in return. But not in the sense of "paying" for the song. Even if you have permission to sing something, you do not have ownership of the song. o in that sense, you are not paying for the song. You give a "gift" in return for the permission to sing that song.

    The other thing is this, if sundance songs can be sold to anyone, then anyone should be allowed to attend sundance, and we know that isn't possible.

    learning trick songs?
    by sophisticated_lady
    Hello,
    I`ve often read or heard that you scould/should learn trick songs. How do you do this? You can`t learn all of them, what are the songs you listen to to learn?

    Dance Progression
    by HeyDad!!
    I know that like other songs there are slow medium and fast songs. When singing these songs how should one proceed? For example say your singing 7 or 8 sets, should the first and second be slow, the 3rd slow - medium, 4-6 medium, and 7 and 8 fast?

    Thanks....

    Ponca Songs
    by traddancer553
    A friend asked me the other day if i knew anything about Ponca songs and the order they have to be sung. He said that he was told that certain songs had to be sung together in a special order. I know very little about Ponca songs. Does anyone here know about this?

    A "recall" on songs...
    by LSS
    A few friends and I have recently been discussing the notion of how people are currently trying to reclaim song from the drum. Some of these songs are family songs and some belong to individuals. The one that comes to mind is that of Old Man No-Ear.

    I'm just curious to find out if you...
