Land of the silver birch,
Home of the beaver,
Where still the mighty moose wanders at will.
Blue lake and rocky shore,
I will return once more.
Boom di dee boom boom, Boom di dee boom boom,
Boom di dee boom boom boom.
I think it is so important to play and sing Native American songs! Where I live, students don’t see Native Americans regularly, so many of them think there are no more Native Americans in the USA! We must remind them of their rich heritage. I play a recording of traditional Native American music. We name the instruments we hear (usually drum and shakers) and the voices: men. This is a good song to play – and eventually show the video. Some Native Americans are dressed in native clothing, and others in street clothes. It’s helpful to tell the students (if they don’t know any Native Americans personally) that Native Americans look just like we do!
