Little Big Mountain

Little Big Mountain is a fourth generation dancer, singer and educator on Native culture.  His father, Iron Horse Big Mountain,  was Comanche from Anadarko, Oklahoma and his mother, Wildflower Big Mountain  is Mohawk from Kahnawake, Canada.   Little’s reservation is the Kahnawake Mohawk Territory in Canada, Southwest of Montreal.  Little is the youngest of 6 children, 1 girl and 5 boys.  His Indian name is Oskwanontona Big Mountain.

Little has been performing and competing on the Pow Wow Trail and educating on Native culture all over the United States for over 40 years.  He started as a child with his family.  The Big Mountain family’s performances started back in the mid 1800’s with Little’s great grandfather performing with  the 101 Ranch Buffalo Bill Show in Ponca City, Oklahoma, and has continued through the generations to today’s performances which include, Disney World and affiliates, Universal Studios, the New Orleans Jazz Festival, Rank Leisure Dinner Shows, Native festivals, history fairs, Pow-Wow’s, schools from kindergarten classes to colleges, just to name a few. 

Little’s experience and pride shows  in his work, whether performing for thousands of people or for a small classroom of children.  The audience will leave the show having seen the beauty of Native America and with a new understanding of Native culture.
