Native Games, 2011, Wrap-Up

Our 5th Annual "H.O.Y.E." ("Help Our Youth Excel") Native Games kicked off yesterday afternoon with great enthusiasm! After gathering snugly under canopies while the snow and rain blessed the field, we circled up and asked an Elder for an opening prayer--for safety on the shinny field, for the people who could not be there to play, for the ominous fate of people across the ocean in Japan, for these challenging times in which we are living.

Whistling Elk and White Hawk Singers' CD, "NO MATTER WHAT," Available Soon!

In collaboration with White Hawk Singers from Nespelem, Washington (Colville Rez), Whistling Elk Drum is in the process of professionally recording a new CD, "No Matter What," soon to be released. The CD will feature the complimentary styles of Southern (White Hawk) and Northern (Whistling Elk) Pow Wow songs. White Hawk and Whistling Elk befriended one another a few years ago at the Southern Oregon Veteran's Pow Wow. Since then, good relations have been made by the Drum families and the invitation to form a compilation of beautifully arranged songs has become a reality.
