Medicine Singers

An Algonquin Drum Group from Woonsocket/Providence RI, the Medicine Singers are dedicated to keeping the eastern woodlands American Indian culture alive. The drum is made up of RI, NY, NJ & Southeastern Massachusetts Tribes. They are proud to sing and drum in the language of the Massachuset & Wampanoag dialect, with thanks to the elder speakers of the language both past and present for their help. They honor Clinton Lightning Foot Wixon, Donald Three Bears Fisher and Julieann Jenniings, all speakers of their language. They strive to be a traditional, all inclusive drum and sing for their eastern people. They also honor past eastern drums Nipmuc Turtle Drum and Full Circle Drum – many of those past drum members have sat welcome with them and they are proud to be together with their brother and sister singers.
