Lillian White Corn Little Soldier "Mom" Klaudt (June 29, 1906 - March 4, 2001)
Lillian Little Soldier Klaudt was born at Fort Berthold Indian Reservation in Beaver Creek, North Dakota. She often appeared in concert with her family wearing traditional Indian outfits. Along with her husband Rev. Reinhold Klaudt and their five children, the group came to be billed collectively as the Klaudt Indian Family.
Fans were naturally curious to hear the group due to their name and heritage. The group was known for playing a wide variety of instruments during their programs. These ranged from brass instruments to guitar, piano and accordion. As her children grew older, Mom Klaudt relocated her family from the Dakotas to Cleveland, Tennessee so they could attend the Church Of God Bible Training School. The Klaudts became one of the more popular groups on Wally Fowler’s All Night Sings, ultimately settling to live in the Atlanta, Georgia area. Mom Klaudt’s signature song was the traditional hymn "Blessed Assurance.
