Before Grand Entry at Pow Wows, the MC will call each drum to make sure everyone is present. Most of the times the singers will just hit the drum to alert the MC. Sometimes each drum will sing a song, usually 1 or 2 times through.
Occasionally the MC or the Pow Wow Committee will ask the drums for something special! And that's when things can get really fun!
Below are some of my favorites!
Kid's Songs – 2012 Tha Pow Wow
Boy Band Songs – 2018 Cherokee North Carolina
Best Dance Moves – 2015 Gathering of Nations

Ruben Littlehead Drum Stories
And honorable mention goes to Ruben Littlehead. Ruben's Drum Stories incorporated all the drum groups names into a tall tale told only how Ruben could tell it!
