Plains Chippewa/Metis Music from Turtle Mountain

From traditional drum songs to French children's songs, from Scottish fiddle dance tunes to contemporary country and rock 'n' roll, this recording presents music heard today on the Turtle Mountain Reservation which straddles the border between the U.S. and Canada. A passionate and lively portrait of the history and daily lives of an indigenous American culture born by the contact of American Indians with Europeans. Compiled and annotated by Nicholas Curchin Peterson Vrooman. Originally issued in 1984 as Folkways 4140. "...[H]aunting..." — Option
