family to the pow-wow tradition. Upon returning home to
Jemez, Malcom wanted to begin this tradition in his
community. He gathered a group of cousins and friends and

heart of Jemez Pueblo, New Mexico. Although Red Nation has
only been singing together for about 5 years, we all have
experience of singing throughout our lives with other drum
groups. Also hailing out from Jemez, such as Black Eagle,

the way of our drum. With the Inspiration from drum groups
throughout the United States and Canada. We as Red Nation

Stepping foot into the Powwow culture in 1989, we have been
inspired and introduced into the powwow way of life by some
of the most respected individuals in Indian Country. Kenny
Scabbyrobe and family, Tobby Starr (who has passed into the
spirit world), Paul Pacheco Sr. (who has also passed into
the spirit world), Otis Half Moon and Norman Largo. These
are just a few to mention who have inspired us to Humbly
keep this way of life. With this inspiration, we have been
singing for 20 years, composing many songs in honor of many
individuals. We have travelled across Indian Country for
both the benefit and the competition within the Powwow
circuit. We have recently adapted the original style of
singing adding a contemporary flare in our music. We compose
our songs in our Native Towa language, which we are the only
Towa speaking tribe in the whole world. We would like to
thank our father Lawrence Toya who has been a great
inspiration to us in our song making. With that, we sing
with pride and honor for all people from all walks of life.
