Smoketrail Singers Drum Group
Smoketrail Singers are a traditional singing drum group out of Alderville First Nation and the surrounding area. Members of the drum group represent the Ojibwe, Mississauga, Dakota, and Potowatomi Nations. The group is a family drum of fathers, sons, daughters, and grandchildren that has been singing and traveling throughout North America for 25-30 years. The group has won numerous singing/drum competitions at different celebrations across North America and is a two-time nominated Indigenous People's Choice Awards group for best traditional album and the winner of the 2011 Canadian Aboriginal Music Award for best tradition album titled "A Long Red Road". The group is happy to represent our community and Nation here for this year's Cultural Celebration out front of the Post Office in historic Downtown Port Perry.
