Description: Music of the Yurok and Tolowa Indians

Produced and annotated by Charlotte Heth, a member of the Cherokee nation of Oklahoma and a noted ethnomusicologist.

In aboriginal times the coastal Indians of Northern California shared a tremendous wealth of food, clothing, and material goods. From Trinidad, California to the Oregon border the forests almost touch the Pacific Ocean, which gave the people the bounty of both the woodlands and the sea. The Tolowa and the Yurok, along with their neighbors the Hupa and the Karok, are the southernmost representatives of the elaborate Northwest Coast Indian culture area. This disc contains a variety of love songs, dances, gambling songs, and ceremonial music which shows the wit, charm and love of the people.
