Bad Hand, Howard

Howard Bad Hand is a Sicangu Lakota, a member of the Rosebud (S.D.) Sioux Tribe. One of the fourth generation of singers and tribal song keepers in his family, Howard began learning the sacred music of his people as a teenager. Taught and encouraged by his elder relations, Howard learned the songs and the healing rituals.

Formally educated at Lenox School in Massachusetts, followed by long stints at Dartmouth College and Harvard University, Howard has also been well educated in the history and traditions of Anglo culture. Known also by his given name, Wicapi Wankatuya (High Star) he is frequently called upon for his ability to interpret Lakota traditions to meet the challenges of contemporary times.

Widely known throughout both Native American and Anglo worlds, Howard serves today as a ceremonial leader, healer and teacher. He has taught Native American music, character development and lectured on Lakota spirituality and the Book of Change throughout the US as well as in Europe and Australia. Howard lives with his wife Terrie and family in Taos, New Mexico.
