Overview

The Black Lodge Singers of White Swan, WA, are one of the most sought-after bands on the powwow circuit. The group, comprised largely of members of Kenny Scabby Robe's family, is known for their original compositions. On this release, they pay tribute to the family's late patriarch, Jim Weasel Tail. Weasel Tail was himself a respected singer and craftsperson who continued to make the rounds of the powwow trail (even after losing the use of his legs) until his death in 1975. The 13 songs on this release, all new compositions, are sung in the Blackfeet language. Here the family shows the strength that has put them at the top of their game. The drumming and singing are powerful and high-spirited, accented by yelps and hoots. It's a joyous and loving tribute to an esteemed man.
