About this Recording
About this Recording
It is generally believed that contest dancing first began in Oklahoma in the early 1920’s, or even before, when the fancy feather dance style came in. As Sylvester Warrior explained, “We never had ‘contest songs’ as such, but when these contests began, we just chose some of our faster Hethoshka songs for this purpose. Some of these we call charging songs.” Over the years the Ponca singers have become widely known for their outstanding contest singing and songs. We are very honored to be able to present these fine singers and a few of their exceptional songs sung for contests today. We are very grateful to the singers for their willingness to record these songs.
