Tulehoidjad was formed in 1950 by Lehti Merilo after she arrived in Portland, Oregon from Estonia. Lehti directed the group until 1985 when she then passed on the directorship to her daughter Liina Teose. Liina and Janne Stepp are the current Co-Directors of the group, of which there are presently 16 members.
