Devin "Buddaz" Whirlwindsoldier

Devin Whirlwindsoldier is Lakota and Diné. He was raised on the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota. He grew up singing with various drum groups on the pow wow trail. Devin was able to stay positive and out of trouble through singing.

He united with Stephen Yellowhawk and the duo formed “Buddaz and Stephen” and recorded their first album titled “Northern Lights.” Devin and Stephen also have recorded another project with RSBK (Ricky, Stephen, Buddaz & Kilo) titled RSBK. Devin is in the process of recording his next project.

For the last five years, Devin has worked as a mentor in his community. He maintains a drug and alcohol free lifestyle. He encourages youth to be active in starting a drum group or pow wow-style dancing because it helped him to stay out of trouble.
