The Road to Gathering: Jeremiah Copi

The Road to Gathering: Jeremiah Copi

Jeremiah Copi is a drummer and singer with Blue Medicine Wheel singers from Gallup NM.

He is from the Navajo Nation and began drumming when he was 7 years old.

Copi's grandfather taught him how to drum and sing, and the very first songs he learned were family songs. From there he learned other songs, mostly southern but then learned Northern songs.

His favorite is some old school Eyebay!

Copi has been coming to Gathering of Nations for over 10 years now, and enjoys singing and playing on the drum with his brothers and cousins.

When I asked Copi what he enjoys about singing and playing drum at Powwow he had this to say:

“I play for the love of it, it feels good to sing for the people.”
