Hello my name is Edward T. Packineau, I am a member of the Thunderheart Singers. I have been with this drum since its beginning. I believe in the importance and spirit of this drum that has brought spirituality and happiness to my own and extended family. I have sung at many Pow wows, and I have danced for a better part of my life. I am a Northern Tradional dancer. I am also a member of the Hidatsa nation from Ft. Berthold, North Dakota.
