At today's contest pow-wows, whenever dancers face off in competition, drum groups must sing a variety of specialty songs as well as intertribal songs. Each dance category can require two songs with the first in a standard rhythm and the second in a varied rhythm. These second songs, often with sudden stops and tricky rhythms, allow the dancers to show off their winning moves and virtuosity. This recording captures Northern Cree performing their best second songs including their latest Crow Hop, Sneak Up, Slide Step, Chicken Dance, Southern style Fancy Dance songs and a special Round Dance.
