Songs and Dances of the Flathead Indians

When different ways of life – white and American Indian – met one another on the Flathead Indian Reservation in western Montana, many of the tribe’s customs began to disappear. However, their indigenous music continued to be an extremely important source of pride and culture on the reservation. This album contains songs used for entertainment, religious practice, and personal power.
