The Minnehaha Mandskor is the oldest Norwegian chorus in South Dakota.  The name comes from the Norwegian words, MAND meaning man and KOR meaning chorus.  Minnehaha is the county in southeast South Dakota in which the founding members reside.  The chorus was formed in 1890 as a member of the “Norwegian Singers Association of America.”
