Pow Wow Trail – The Songs


Posted By Toyacoyah Brown March 5th, 2014 Blog


Last month we shared with you the first episode from the TV series Pow Wow Trail, which was all about the heartbeat of the pow wow: The Drum.

The next episode in the series covers The Songs. Pow wows are nothing without the songs. They carry the stories, which in turn carry the culture. Some stories tell of great exploits, acts of bravery, and even stories that express the simple pleasures in life.

    I APPLAUSE the video and it’s intention .. However, my only quam is the act of promoting colonization, YET! Why, in 2014 are some of our relations still using these colonial constructs like ‘Indian’ … and other such wording. Also, why, why is the american flag shown flying clearly in this vid. Especially with the subject matter of this video. Almost as bad as still singing the Amazing grace ,,lol

    Why use words like colonization? We all are in the 21st century, where we all walk in two worlds, at least. My grandparents came here way after the invasions and killings. One of my grandparents is Mohecan. One is French Canadian, one is Irish and one is German. All lands have been occupied at one time or another. We cannot live in the past. You use this media, like we all do. You cannot deny any affiliation and no one can deny you in all truth.
