Portrait of Sioux Nation

Sioux Nation formed in 1998 as Sundance and Ceremony singers, and then started out on the pow wow trail in 2002. They would like to send special thanks out to Herman Hapa Jr. who is the father and grandfather of the Sioux Nation Singers. We thank him for the encouragement that he gave us. We would also like to thank Anthony Mazawasicuna and Buffalo Campbell for their guidance on pow wow songs on those lonesome nights. We would like to thank God fro the guidance on showing us Sundance and Ceremony songs.
