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.
