Despite the name of our band, we’re not actual ‘pretendians’. Three out of four of our members represent the Oceti Sakowin (7 Council Fires) of the Dakhota/Lakhota Nation.

We are a Native American rock band based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Many of our songs have societal and political influences with views from a modern Indigenous perspective.
