  • Sun Dance songs at powwows

    Being friends with a guy who knows a lot of the old songs, I was sadden to hear that a couple of comptemporary groups were breaking out Sun Dance songs during contest!!!!!!
    He spoke of one he heard at a recent powwow in South Dakota who did this. He told me that after they sang, the weather changed, it got real hot...
    Just wondering what people think about this because for me it makes me feel real sad and disillusioned as well because my people do not Sun Dance but I respect and understand the power behind it.
    Speak out people ... :(

    This actually isn't that new of a thing, but it is the first time I've heard about it being used for contests. I know several songs that have been "converted" for pow wow use so to speak. I'm sure Jacques or Louis or Sahnish probably know a lot more songs that might fall into that category and could probably shed more light on this subject.

      Here is a question for anyone who wants to chew on it... How does a person correctly dance the trot songs? Why are these songs done the way they are? Are there tribal differences? Have a good one and enjoy the holidays!

      Buffalo Dance Songs
      by hobbs49
      In another thread I found an article written by Dennis Zotigh on the Gourd Dance. In the article, I noticed the following, "A series of Buffalo Dance songs must follow immediately after the last Gourd Dance song is sung. This also follows Kiowa protocol."

      So this brings up...
