Bad Medicine
Bad Medicine hails from Carnegie, Oklahoma and consists of members of the Kiowa Tribe of Oklahoma. As a drum group, Bad Medicine has traveled extensively throughout the United States and Canada participating in many celebrations. Often, Bad Medicine serves as Host Drum or Invited Drum, and has 'placed' in many singing contests at these celebrations. Lead singer for Bad Medicine is Mr. Phil R. (Joe Fish) Dupoint. The drum group was formed in 1987 as a hand game team. That same year, the group was invited to Red Earth to sing and used 'Bad Medicine' as their name and has maintained that name ever since. The boys participate in powwows, 49er’s, hand games, and are also very active in the Kiowa traditional and cultural activities. They have made numerous friends throughout their travels. These boys enjoy laughter, and enjoy making people laugh, while respecting other tribes' traditional ways.

Some of Bad Medicine's most memorable events was winning the 1996 Southern Drum Singing Championship at Schemitzun, the 1997 Hand Game Tournament at Stanford University, the 1997 Hand Game Tournament at Schemitzun, the 2001 Southern Drum Singing Contest at the Gathering, and the 2001 49 Contest at Schemitzun.

"We hope everyone enjoys this music as much as we enjoy singing. We hope to see everyone down the road and wish everyone safe travels. We value the old songs that were left to us by our elder's and prefer the older style of singing. A lot of the songs recorded on this Schemitzun tape are old Kiowa songs, except for a few which were composed by Mr. Glen Ahhaitty." – Joe Fish Dupoint
