This Friday & Saturday the Blackfoot Ranch Rodeo at the Blackfoot fairgrounds will be including Indian Relay races and a performance of Tribal dancers and local drum group, Medicine Thunder (Tyson Eaglevoice Shay). Get your tickets by clicking on their Facebook below.

We are so excited to announce the addition of the drum group Medicine Thunder to our rodeo line up! Here is a bio of the talented group. Come see them and other exciting events tomorrow night at the EISF Fairgrounds beginning at 6:30 PM!

The Medicine Thunder drum group was founded in 2009 by Lead Singers Tyson Shay and Eric “Chip” Dann of Fort Hall, Idaho. Both Shay and Dann had prior singing experience and sang together in Fort Hall. They found themselves in need of other singers so Shay began to bringing his nephews to the drum; whom quickly became drawn to the drum life. Not long after Medicine Thunders’ first debut at a kid’s powwow in fort hall, they began to quickly gain other young singers. After years of singing locally, Medicine Thunder drum group began to travel out to other powwows partaking in drum contests throughout Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, and Utah. Medicine Thunder Drum group has had the honor of serving as the Host Drum at many various powwows as well as singing for performances and other events around Southeastern Idaho. Medicine Thunder has received support from other very well noted drum groups such as Midnite Express, The Boyz, Iron Horse, Cree Confederation and Young Spirit. To this day; Medicine Thunder sings many songs in their own Newe Daigwap’ “Shoshone Language”. It’s an honor for Medicine Thunder Singers to sing for this year’s 2019 Blackfoot Ranch Rodeo and Indian Relays. We hope you enjoy our performance; Medicine Thunder would also like to extend a BIG Thank you to all our family and friends for supporting us.
