INTERTRIBAL SINGING- 2003
This Wednesday the
Red Warriors, lead by Tim Redbird and the Volcan Mountains singers gathered
together at the Many Nations Chester Hunt Community Room.
The Many Nations
Recovery Center, 3829 Illinois Street - San Diego, is graciously providing
the facilities for regular Intertribal singing practice. Upstairs residents
offered their support and said they enjoyed the beautiful songs. In keeping
with the current military concerns, Tim Redbird sang: Kiowa Victory, Warrior
Gourd dance and Veterans songs. Of particular note was the emotional Kiowa
version of the Desert Storm Victory song.
Until further notice
the groups will continue to meet at the Many Nations Chester Hunt Community
Room each Wednesday at 5:30 pm and sing until 8:30pm. We recognize that
the American Indian Warriors Association (AIWA) meets on the first Wednesday
and that is OK. We do not want to wear out our welcome!
hope to encourage the spirit and practice of International and Intertribal
understanding. Canada, Alaska, Lower 48 and Middle America are Indian
Land with thousands of Indian people. If we come to the drum with a good
heart and true humility our path will be as it has traditionally always
been at the drum, wonderful. This understanding, fellowship and intertribal
appreciation is an added benefit of coming to the drum.
We further hope to encourage the singing of the local Tipai and Yuman
song tradition. Not only out of basic respect for the Kumeyaay territory
but also because we enjoy learning and singing these songs as often as
we can. In attendance and encouragement this evening is Master Wildcat
singer Jon Meza Cuero: Tipai.
We welcome participation
and if you just want to visit and listen, well, thatís your choice. However,
we are not teaching classes in Indian Songs or attempting to entertain
anyone per say. That understood, observe and listen and of course- enjoy
Finally, It is with great appreciation that we thank Ted McCauley and
Lisa Powless for their encouragement and the cooperation of the Many Nations
in Recovery. Mehan, Ah ho, thank you.
