The Minnehaha Mandskor Collection, available at the Center for Western Studies, contains Sangerfest materials, sheet music, and copies of the NSAA newsletter publication, the Sanger-Hilsen. Minnehaha Mandskor is a member organization of the Norwegian Singers Association of America, or NSAA, represented at ID #20046. In addition, the Minnehaha Mandskor Collection contains minutes records books from 1890 to 1980, financial ledgers from 1924 to 1993, Trustees meeting notes, and more. Minnehaha Mandskor is based out of Sioux Falls in Minnehaha County, which provides the basis for part of the group's name. The other part of the name comes from the Norwegian words MAND, meaning "man" and KOR, meaning "chorus." Minnehaha Mandskor is a male chorus group that sings Scandinavian songs and participates in national Sangerfest gatherings, among other singing engagements. It is the oldest Norwegian chorus in South Dakota, having been formed in 1890. The group hosted the first national Sangerfest event in Sioux Falls in 1892.
