Powwow Singing

The powwow singers are greatly respected, because without them there would be no dancing. Many young singers dream of a chance to sing with one of the most famous and respected drum groups. The older singers pass on their knowledge of the origin and correct use of the songs to the next generation, and many children grow up near the drum and sit on the singers laps while they sing.

Danish drum groups
The Danish drum all sing according to the Lakota tradition, honoring a long connection to people from Rosebud and Pine Ridge.
