This Multi-Nation Round Dance crew is based out of Frog Lake, Alberta. They feature singers from Saskatchewan, British Columbia, Alberta, Arizona and California.

Their mandate is to keep tradition alive! Co-Founder Jacob Faithful says "Our group's name is Young Spirit for a reason, we collectively have all joined together to stand behind the mandate of keeping our culture alive."

"We want to inspire youth and young people everywhere across the globe to pick up the drum and sing our song," said Faithful. "Stand proud. Be proud of who you are, where you come from and what our people represent."
