Δ   Thunder Hill have carried the mantle of Southern Style singing traditions on the Pow-Wow Trail for more than a decade.  They have earned multiple championship titles for their talented singing.


Δ   This recording presents a variety of Southern Style song and dance styles including Inter-tribals, Old-Time Oklahoma-style Round Dance songs and Hethushka Songs sung in the Omaha language.   


Δ  Thunder Hill is one of the few Southern groups to compose original songs in the Hethushka Song style.  The traditional Hethushka songs belong to the Hethuskha Warrior Socities and not performed at Powwows.  Thunder Hill therefore have composed their own in order to perform them at Powwows.
