This world class singing and drumming group was formed in 1987, with most members originating from the Little Pine. The Red Bull Singers is mainly made up of family members where the tradition is handed down from their families including their parents.
The group's first performance was in Regina, Saskatchewan at the 1987 Saskatchewan Indian Federated College Pow-wow. Because the group was well received this led to performances in many places in the USA including Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, New Mexico and Oklahoma. As their popularity grew they were invited as host drum for numerous pow-wows across North America.
In 1994 highlights added to their career have been an overseas tour to the Goodwill Games in Russia, Poland, Finland and Sweden. In 1995 The Red Bull Singers had the honour of performing with World renowned artist Buffy Sainte-Marie on a song composed by Edmond Bull and Buffy Sainte-Marie entitled "Darling Don't Cry" . This has led to an appearance on the Rita McNeil Show as well as a music video and a Buffy Sainte-Marie special.
This group won the World Hand Drum competition in Connecticut in 199? and in 1998, along with the World Class singing championship in 1997.
The Red Bull Singers are recognized by many as being one of the most accomplished Pow-wow and Round Dance groups in North America.
Two band members, Clara Kennedy and Thelma Nighttraveller, had the opportunity to exhibit their artistic work on the Internet, thanks to the Saskatchewan Indian Cultural Centre.
