      Mea culpa,mea culpa!
      Ok lets work for world peace:
      tunkasilayapi tawapaha kin han
      the grandfather's flag
      ohinhankesni he nanjinktelo
      without end it will stand
      iyohlateya oyatekinhan wicicaginkta
      underneath it the people will grow
      ca lecamuwelo
      this is why i do this

      I prefer that version:
      Ikce wicasa tamakoce kin tewahila na
      The indian country I love and
      I take courage
      Tunkasilayapi tawapahaki maka ihanke
      The grandfather's flag to the end of the world
      ki heya nanjinkte
      it will stand

          I like Ft Yates singers, Ernie Thunderhawk singing lead, Screaming Eagle, from Cheyenne River and Eagle Mountain, from Pine Ridge and Running Antelope, from Little Eagle/Running Antelope, SD. Running Antelope was around about 15 yrs ago and went away but are back with some old and younger singers. They sound pretty good.

            Written Powwow Music?
            by WhoMe
            My father is a song maker. His father was a song maker and his father was a song maker. As they passed these songs down, there was no written form of music to learn from. Yet, each knew hundreds of songs. I would estimate my father knows over 600 songs from different tribes and genres that he has stored...

            Composing Songs
            by DCP
            I have been told by some that one has to earn the right to compose songs. I have been told by others that if a song "comes to you" it ought to be used. I would enjoy hearing some feedback on this.

            Old Drumming Rules
            by jumpingbuffalo
            Whatever happen to "not singing others songs without buying 'THE RIGHTS' first?"

            There are many drums singing other drums songs, most not even of the same tribe, just hackin' the songs up badly.

            I've asked a few where they got 'that song' and they were "...uhh...

            by n8tiveson79
            I have a couple of things to say and then a couple of questions.
            Hau Koda!
            I have been reading the different comments. I have a questions about who made up the term "old style"?
            who defined the term?
            and if a drum sings straight or "word songs", why is...

            straight singing becoming the rage?
            by stud of the stable
            Black Lodge and Black Stone broke new ground, and influenced today's popular contemporary sound (I know, Rod Hunter & Red Nation way back did too). I seem to notice more of today's groups swaying their attention to please an older demographic,and sing more conservatively as oppossed to the Indian...
