Prairie Blues

A Native band plays slave music on the great plains.

The siblings will seemingly remain close if any of them decides to leave the rural log cabin the family calls home. (They built it themselves after their old house burned down four years ago, a fire that also destroyed the band's equipment.) "I think we enjoy each other's company too much," says Pte. "Even when we're not on the road, we usually all hang out."

Wanbdi agrees that their creative and family lives have always been fluid. "We never get angry with each other," she says. "If we have a disagreement, we'll just sit down and work it out. It's been that way ever since we were little."

The family that plays together, stays together. The siblings of Indigenous: Horse, Mato, Pte, and Wanbdi
