The Black Lodge Singers are a Northern-style drum group. With over 20 CDs in print, they are arguably the best-known drum group of all time. They are widely sought after to be host drum, and their yearly itinerary reads like a "who's who" of pow wow events.
The name "Black Lodge" was given to Kenny Scabby Robe by the aging members of the Black Lodge warrior society on the Blackfeet Reservation near Browning, Mont. The Black Lodge Society was noted for its black or black and white tipis, which were set up away from the main camp. Kenny insists that his group conduct themselves in a good traditional way and always maintain strict etiquette while seated at the drum out of respect for such an honor.
