AllMusic Review by

Traditional chants of the Sisseton Wahpeton Sioux tribe are echoed from the past on this heartfelt homage to the oral family history. Sioux tribe member Bryan Akipa's Mystic Moments explores the importance of giving something back to one's elders by orally handing down family traditions. Light percussion and sound effects accompany Akipa's haunting and sincere Dakota flute proclamations, lamenting the passing of old ways but also recognizing the everlasting love celebrated in the tribes of all people.
