Lyz Jaakola has worked as a Native American artist and musician since the 1990s. Her projects have been featured on Minnesota Public Radio and WDSE-TV, and she was nominated in 2010 for a Native American Music Award for Best Traditional Recording. Her backing group, the Indianhead Band, prefers to render its name in the form of a hashtag and delves musically into a raucous mixture of dancehall, ska, jazz, soul and Ojibwa traditional music. Dave Ripley, Hunter Jaakola and Jackson Ripley all play guitar and various other instruments. Their songs have received airplay on the syndicated radio program Native America Calling and WGZS, the community station of the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa.
