Link: Verdell Primeaux, Native American Church singer (Oglalla/Yankton Sioux & Ponca) is from the Oglalla Sioux Reservation [Pine Ridge], and is the son of noted peyote singer Francis Primeaux, Sr.

Although the Native American Church traces its roots to the 1880s, Quanah Parker is regarded as one of the first leaders of the movement. After being gored by a bull while traveling in South Texas, a Coahuiltecan Indian curandera healed Parker by nursing him with a strong peyote tea. Later, he learned the “half-moon” style of the peyote ceremony from a Lipan Apache medicine man, and brought the religion back to the Comanches and other tribes in Indian Territory.
