The group was formed in 1977 by Rod Hunter.
In 1978 the group started to go on tour, placing at pow wows both in the USA and Canada. As Clifford Powderface puts it, "We compose all our songs for the people to enjoy that are sung from the heart. We give thanks and are grateful when we hear our songs by other groups. The songs we sing are about the pow-wow spirit and of the eagle, mostly about the pow wow trail.
