Sequoia Crosswhite is an enrolled member of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe and a descendant of Chief War Eagle and Chief Swift Cloud. He is an accomplished musician, grass dancer and historian, and his handmade flutes and musical recordings uphold the traditions of his Lakota ancestors. Much of his music is a fusion of hip-hop, rock, and lyrics about Indian heritage and contemporary life.

Sequoita’s first album, Wagnuka Olowan (Woodpecker Song), is prominently featured in Raw Travel’s Season 3 – Western Frontier. The album highlights the Native American flute and it’s connection with nature with a mixture of contemporary and traditional sounds.  Find out more information about how and where to purchase this CD and other music by Native American artist HERE
