Album Notes
2011 Native American Music Awards Winner! Best Pow Wow Recording
Artist Statement by Ernest Proper and the Black Thunder Singers.............

The Drum is the heartbeat of Mother earth and the voices carry the Mother’s spirit
through the generations. The songs are not owned, but belong to the people. Those
that are chosen to sing the songs have the responsibility to carry on the traditions as
taught by our elders.

Ernie Proper began teaching the songs to his sons and hunka in 1999. Ernie sang
with several other northern drums and was a fancy dancer, and later a northern
traditional dancer over the years. The original five singers were all dancers before
they started singing.

Before long, Black Thunder Singers were in high demand for pow wows on the east
coast. Black Thunder added several singers, including the ladies, over the years, but
remained true to the traditions as taught by the elders. All of the singers are of
multicultural heritage, but choose to follow the old traditions in their daily lives.
Black Thunder Singers do not believe in making a profit for singing or dancing. The
songs belong to the people. Any profits beyond expenses are donated to charity.
This is a good way to give back to the people.
