    wah....

    yah know....I was just wondering where that hole is you guys have been in??

    The awsome of round dancers today....absolute rock the housers...the master blasters...the voices of destruction...the thunder on the prairie...Logan Alexis. Man...oh, man...these guys...these guys put the awe in awsome. Puting soul in to the song...a beat that wont quite. Make me almost cry. Man those guys arent Cree. But hey, they can rock the house all night long. No holds barred type of fellas. Never closed style! They can blast those songa all night long. They have a good beat, good volume and really good songs that just hit you in the heart like a sniper. Sheesh.

    Then I would have to say Northern Cree. They have a good crew. I especially like that Tootoosis guy that sings with them. I think his name is cheepos or jeepos...how ever you spell it. Of course they are Cree...AND HAVE BEEN NOMINATED FOR A GRAMMY!! Just like White Fish Jrs, another CREE drum group. So to that guy that was saying bow down. Go ahead. And while your down there, take a moment to reflect that my reserve is on what was once Blackfoot territory. Till you were given your eviction notice, via arrow and lance tip. Oh no offence either aye...we take good care of this land we took off ya guys.

    oh...and uh...thanks for the horses too, we enjoy them regularly...:Chatter :Chatter :Chatter :Chatter

    i have alot of favorite cree round dance singers. most of them have already been mentioned. my all time favorite would be clayton chief, of little island cree.

    as for non-cree singers: eugene alexis,of logan alexis' boys. blacklodge are good also, but where john and algin took them they learned from the cree style. example, their round dances are run the cree way. they have alot of respect towards hand drum singing and other singers as well.

    Yeah Red Bull has the title, Little Island Cree then Blackstone, Northern Cree fo sho, but there are so many more that don't travel that can just rock!

    Non-cree's would have to be from Fort Berthold area, sheesh, they could make you dance hard or smile till your cramp or cry your eyes out and always make you run for your recorder!

    Rocky Boy's has some wicked songs tho, too true.

    We all need to come together and get these songs out in the open tho. All caught up in just pow-wow.

    listen up y'all.......i didn't mean to offend anyone.....(crossing fingers behind back)....and I apologize to those who were offended. I didn't mean for everyone to bow down to Black Lodge, what was meant by that statement was one of utmost respect. These guys rule!!! And so what if they did make some funny songs.....makes people smile. Thats the purpose of round dance music. They are composed songs of love or to bring humor for those of you who don't know that!!!!!!!!!!! There are a lot of very strong blackfoot singers out there.....Arnold Mountain Horse is a very well respected singer, Leo Wells has sat at the drum of many respected drums, Billy Wadsworth sings his everyloving heart out everytime he picks up a handdrum, Kent A Young Man has a voice straight from the heavens......these people may not be well known, but they are definately voices not to be reckoned with, and they are all Blackfoot!!!!! :Yell :Yell :Yell :Yell

    whoa, there bunny bustle.....
    yea i do think that Crees have some of the best
    round dance singers around and i think theres a good reason for that, but thats why i posted the
    question in the first place, i said "maybe your all aware of
    singers that i am not aware of....." so u listed the Blacklodge singers, and thats all good, i enjoy there round dance tunes...so maybe you could let us know of some good blackfoot round dance singers .
    i dont think that we(Crees) are the end all be all of singing at all, and i dont think bowing down to anyone is a good thing at all in any sense.....dang. and by the way how many Crees were nominated for a grammy?....umm let me see....Northern Cree for 1.....

    they're downfall is those cute little "funny the first time you hear 'em, but still shouldn't have been made in the first place" songs

    ;)

    and Black Lodge has more than a few of those....


    how can you bow to someone singin' "Pork and Beans"

    OK yes, perhaps Crees don't have to be the 'be all and end all' of round dance singers , and Black Lodge is a good drum group, but in my OPINION, their round dance style and songs don't beat some of the groups I hear around here. It has nothing to do with the tribe, just a difference in sound and songs. Should anyone 'bow' to any other group?
    Let's be humble here.
    As for the Grammy nomination, good for them, but that doesn't mean they are the shiznit over everybody else. I don't mean to offend but just state my opinion.
