These are times that try men’s souls. All parties, Republican, Democrat, Police, Christian, Muslim, Jew, all races, creeds, national origin’s, immigrants, need to stop bickering and arguing over the small stuff. While everyone can see The Drum is a sacred instrument of whichever people use it in their ceremonies… we need to follow the direction which this leads. Is it toward reconciliation or away? These are the issues of the Day, not non sense, not even who’s right or wrong. Or whose been right or wronged, but doing and saying conciliatory things that show a persons magnanimity.

Well, it has been said that the Drum is also used for healing. I hope that the experience helps them and that it heals the gashes of separation.

Kali evidently you fell and hit your head
There is not one bit of hate in the Robertson family they show only love of god and mankind . I hope you get your heart right before you end up in hell

Jed Pike

Judith, it isn’t clear why you made the comment, you did? You attributed it as a reply to Kali. I think you meant the reply to be directed towards Red Prairie Fire. Which, name is by itself worthy of criticism.


The Pow wow was not an invention to entertain the white soldiers…it was a gatherin of our peoples to share stories and dances and connect with family and friends from different tribes. With all the competitions happening now is a travesty to the original gathering…if our people wanted to compete with each other..it was done, no money exchanged..just for braggin rights. The drum has the right to invite who ever it wishes into the circle…As a Christian American Indian mixed blood i don’t see what the problem is? Since when are homosexuals a race? how is it racist? prove the science that a “gay” gene exists and i will believe you…are some people born with more x or y chromosomes than normal? sure..but they are excess genes not a “gay” gene. Shouldn’t we all get along and walk the path Creator God has for us and lift people up instead of tearing them down…reservations have enough to deal with than worry about a Christian man welcomed at the drum…geez. :/


Wow, I just read some of these comments and I’m astonished at the hate they themselves hurl at others who they don’t agree with. These same people who claim tolerance sure don’t seem to show it to others. But I don’t see the whole story here of the Duck Dynasty episode. He quoted the Bible about a few things. They were then taken off (what happened to free speech here)because others didn’t agree with them, then when there was an out cry of the supporters of the program it was put back on…democracy in action for both parties. The latest was the gay community then said they would like to open a discussion with the Duck Dynasty group. Now, THAT is how things should be not hurling accusations (or name calling!!!) against others but talking and sometimes agreeing to disagree. He also said (was/is anyone listening?) that just because he disagrees with people does not mean he HATES them!!


It’s the Seminole Tribe of Floida’s event. What do you expect? I hate to say it, but they sell out the rest of Indian Country with their continued support of FSU’s racist mascot. If you know members of the tribe and their leadership, you wouldn’t be surprised. I’m not.

Ive read some of the comments on here. I just wanted to say that there may have been comments the man had made in the past, but if he was such a bigot or whatever, he would not have been on that drum. From the video he seamed to have really gotten into the song. I seen a man jamming away with the rest of them. Remember “A man” human being. This is what we all forget to look at. In all races, even us as the N8v. Put away all anger or our healing will still yet be delayed!

Maybe these Duck guys are just there to be seen doing what lots of Anglos do; claiming native culture as their own.
The natives are not going to learn how to behave from such people so they let the Duck guys drum a little because it’s the welcoming thing to do.
