Great times at knox

We had a great performance at knox college sunday evening.

We had close to twenty people from our group showup, the best we have had for quite a while. Close to a hundred people came to watch, and they all stayed for the whole 90 minutes. They really semed to enjoy it too.
We sang a lot of good songs, including a grand entry,flag,veterans,intertribal,and prayer song. We demonstrated a number of dances, a sneakup,straight,ladies traditional,grass,fancy shawl,round,and a crowhop. I would especially like to thank David Frisby for coming back to give us a grass dance Thanks Dave!
We also talked about traditions,the songs and the dances. A number of people stayed behind to ask questions, then we all went over to the gizmo,the cafeteria, and they fed us for free. All in all, a great show and a great time.
I would like to remind everyone that the black fox drum is going to sing at the bald eagle days gathering at the high school in Hamilton,Il. at noon on saturday, the 21st. We weren't going to be there but Fred Warbonnet, the head dancer, really wanted us. We were VERY flattered. Because of this, the practice on friday has been cancelled, but I assume we will practice next tuesday.
As I have said, if you want me to post anything, just let me know. Also you can make comments on the page. This blog is a work in progress, so bear with me.
