The Naahii Singers

The Naahii Singers

The Naahii Singers are a pow-wow style drum group. They are descendants of the Lenape people originally from what is currently known as New York city. Using their language, culture and heritage, they are able to produce a wide variety of songs with vocals not commonly heard in mainstream music. Moraviantown, Ontario is home to the Naahii Singers, one of three Lenape settlements in North America. The group uses their music to revitalize the Lenape people and language. 

 

Although most of the Naahii Singers' songs are composed in the Lenape language, they are also descendants of the Ojibwe, Potawatomi and Odawa nations. All three of these tribes are located in Walpole Island, Ontario, and it is there where their  families connect. Continuing traditions passed through generations, the Naahii Singers use the languages of Moraviantown and Walpole Island to entertain and enlighten the public.
