War Bonnet

Chaz Wagner, Tony Parson, Alex Mehne and Leah Lemm play Native American rock from the Ojibwe reservations of northern Minnesota, a land their people have inhabited for longer than anyone else. Their band War Bonnet explores and reinterprets the darker, more recessed ancestral music created by North America’s Indigenous people. The 2020 album Ancestral Legacy and video for the song “Ikwe” — the word means woman in Ojibwe, and the song is a tribute to missing and murdered Indigenous women — are nominated for 2022 Native American music awards.
