  • re: youth singing group

    i just heard a youth singing group this past week-end played on our local ndn radio station klnd. this group of singers consist of 4th & 5th grade boys from the standing rock elementary school. these boys really impressed me. sang some good straight songs plus they also sang some traditional lakota songs.
    the one song that impressed me the most was that veterans memorial song they sang. need more young kids like these boys. does any one have groups like this from there rez that sing by themselves and are learning the traditional songs. would be nice to hear these groups on the national native air waves since it is something positive for all ndn people. "peace"

      My family is also from SR, though I haven't been back in 20yrs, and it makes me glad whenever I hear good news about youth at the Rock. Out in Washington there are a couple of "youth drums" I hear quite of a few powwows, one is Sauk Beux' (sp?) from the Sauk-Suiattle Tribe near Darrington, the other is Golden Eaglets from Nespelem (they are the "next generation" of the Golden Eagle drum group). I've also seen a few kids from the Tulalip Heritage School get involved in singing, when in the past some of them would just be horseplaying outside of the powwows while their parents/siblings danced. It is good to see and hear about all of this happening now.

          It is really nice to hear about these youth drum groups from the other Rez's... we have a couple from around here that are up and coming... The Red Horse Singers and Callin' Eagle. Both are youth drums and are full of dancers of all catagories.... they both are experienced in hosting also.
          Please encourage our youth to continue doing their best especially in the Circle.
          Happy Trails!....

            re; youth drum group

            i remember another drum group that was from rosebud i think their name was eagle creek. i remember when they all started out as young boys, now they are all young men and are still singing together.

                  I just want to mention an up and coming drum group here out of the Red Lake Rez...Their name is Red Creek....They're comprised of young singers that were on the high school drum in the past, along with some new faces as this drum group is growing one by one. A lot of the songs that they sing are those traditional songs that are sung here in Northern Minnesota and these songs go way back....These young men sing these songs in a way that just keeps the dancers out in the arena no matter what type of song or how old the song is........and thats what makes this drum group a very good one.....They've hosted only a few pow-wow around in the local area but their rising popularity is one of the reasons why people on the pow-wow circuit should look forward to hearing from them.... RED CREEK coming to a pow-wow near you....

                      Have to agree with Eagle Eyes.. Thunder Boyz were awesome at IU.
                      The youngest one belted out a song that captivated everyone. It brought tears to my eyes and , in fact it only happened one other time and that is when I heard another awesome singer the first time a couple of years ago.
                      I will love to see where these kids will wind up in their future.

                        Just wondering about eastern powwows?
                        by off the top
                        I noticed that there are alot of powwows on the eastern seaboard from Florida up to Maine. I was just wondering if there is a need for these powwow committees to expand their knowledge of drum groups who are willing to travel and attend their powwows. Its just that I've noticed alot of the same drums...

                        by The Rock
                        A favorite subject of mine. I love to see groups come out of left field and rock a pow-wow like it was nobody's business and hardly anyone knows where they come from.

                        There are groups that are establishing themselves these days, but I wanna talk about the groups that are just getting off...

                        Is there a difference?
                        by LSS
                        With the present day emergence of "Drum Groups", do any of you guys notice a difference in the way people sing?

                        What I'm getting at is when I'm sitting at the "Center Drum" I've noticed a good number of people not singing hard, or at least so it seems! I know with...

                        Strange drum traditions
                        by billyjoejimbob
                        Being on the east coast, I have seen my share of strange things at powwows. Since Im a singer, I will focus on THE DRUM.

                        There are a bunch of strange drums in the east. You know who Im talking about. Those drums that sing and hit the drum but you dont know if its northern or southern....
