Red Shadow Singers
The Red Shadow Singers are the main drum group at the Turtle Lodge. Originating from a number of First Nations across Canada, they represent the Turtle Lodge as they carry the sacred songs that came through the Turtle Lodge through ceremony, prayer, and fasting. They are often invited to sing the sacred songs and have been honoured by nominations at music awards, in the traditional category, in the United States and Canada. To the Original People, the drum represents the heartbeat of Mother Earth and carries the voice of the people. The Red Shadow Singers ask that their songs, received through ceremony, be used in spiritual ways for healing or prayer.
