Living Legends is a song and dance performing group at Brigham Young University made up of performers of Native American, Polynesian and Hispanic or Latino origin. They perform dances that originate in these cultures as well.
It was originally started as the Lamanite Generation which was an all Native American performing group organized by Janie Thompson. The organization was first formed in 1971.
The group is noted for its closing song at most performances "Go My Son and Get an Education".
The transition to its current name was a long drawn out process. For example, in 1991 they still were using the name "Lamanite Generation" but performed a program entitled "Living Legends".
