This young man is destined to show the world just who he is! His music is more than beginning to take shape. Mark my words folks, Ryan Little Eagle is a name you will be hearing more and more of.
Ryan is Lakota/Apache mix blood from the Hill Country of Texas. At the age of 1 Ryan was given the Lakota name Wambli Cikala (Little Eagle). Ryan spent most of his early life in San Antonio where he was able to learn the ways of his ancestors from his Grandmother.
When Ryan turned 16 he met a Hidatsa Elder that went by the name Mato. From there Ryan started to get involved in the local Pow Wows. At the Powwow in Bandera, Texas, Ryan picked up a Harjo cane flute.
He played this flute as if he had been playing for years. Ryan is a natural with the flute.
In this song, "Mama's Love" he thoughtfully yet powerfully tells a story, and shares what is in his heart with all of us.
