    We are SPPS: Ȟoká Máza

    Chaske Henry and his brother Robert Henry are students at Harding High School and founders of the drum group Ȟoká Máza. Inspired by their elder male role models, they use songs that have been passed down for generations as a way of connecting to their Indigenous heritage and sharing their culture. It is a way to forge healing and pay tribute to their roots, not only during Native American Heritage Month, but year-round.
