Formed in 2012, SCATTER THEIR OWN is an Alter-Native Rock Duo of Oglala Lakota ancestry from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation of South Dakota. Scattering their music to all nations in all directions - from Canada to Texas, and Los Angeles to New York City - Scotti Clifford(Guitarist and Vocalist) and Juliana Brown Eyes-Clifford (Bassist and Vocalist) were a couple first.
Scotti refers to touring as a modern day buffalo hunt. "In order to provide for our family, we must follow the music. Through our endeavors, I hope to teach my children how to find balance, spiritually, and professionalism." As a modern day Lakota family who views movement as sacred, Scatter Their Own has no difficulty packing up their Tipi and guitars in order to follow the buffalo.
Aside from being a national touring act who recently performed at SXSW Music Festival in Austin Texas in March of 2016, Scatter Their Own is currently working on a new album. Their second independent album will peek in on the duo's charismatic connection onstage. This sophomore effort will showcase their endearing harmonies, coupled with moving anthems about their relationship to mother-earth, furthermore inviting you along on their mystical path. Like Scotti & Juliana, Scatter Their Own's music is diverse in influence and style, but bonded together by an undeniably creative journey.
"For us, it is all about relationship. The more fire that we can share as a world community, the stronger our unity. We want to share with the general public who we are as Oglala Lakota People, simply by lyrically fusing the concepts and philosophy of our Native American Culture with our Bluesy Indie Rock foundation. A style that we have dubbed Alter-Native Rock & Roll."

IAIA Digital Dome Manager Mats Reiniusson, who has begun to book more and more shows in the IAIA Digital Dome remarked: "It is amazing to have all of these great performers at the IAIA Digital Dome and on campus. In the intimate Dome space performers can get really close to the audience and be able to interact with them during the show. Our goal is to have one performance with well-known artists in the Digital Dome every month."
