Cat. No.: 80343
Genre: Traditional
Description: Music of the Plains Indians

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

This disc offers ceremonial and social music of Indians from the Great Plains. Although the styles of singing  and drumming vary greatly in different regions and among different tribes, the forms of music are similar, enabling musicians from many tribes to perform together. Most of the music here is intertribal singing of what are now the Southern Plains Indians, primarily from Oklahoma; tracks 5-9 add the intertribal music of the Northern Plains Indians.
