Laying in bead. Hopelessly bored. But that was yesterday.

Sometimes I just want to drift away into the stars.

Those amazing moments

Last week, I was visiting with a friend from New Mexico. We were cruising around the Dakota rez of Wahpeton and listening to pow wow music talking about our favourite singers. I mentioned mine as the late Percy Dreaver. Brother of Harvey Dreaver and the man who encouraged me to sing as a youngster.

As it turns out my friends dad use to sing with Percy in Whitefish Jrs way back in the day and he had recorded a bunch of songs Percy made, all on cassette tapes. Songs I’ve never heard.

It was really amazing to hear these songs from my main influence in singing. Amazing songs, it’s ashamed he passed away before he got to sing them with his brothers (the Whitefish Jrs) I was really grateful to hear a couple of those songs. Here’s some of the words in cree. Beautiful composer he was. I always remember his deadly vocals. If you think Harvey Dreaver is amazing, you should of heard Percy Dreaver. Oh how I wonder what the pow wow and round dance scene would look like today if he was still alive. Hoka.
