  1. Beth, I love your posts and have found so many wonderful ideas on your site! I was wondering if you know which Native American culture this song comes from? My students are specifically learning about Native Americans of the Eastern Woodlands, so I know they would be interested to know which culture this song comes from. I searched it online and couldn’t figure it out…

    Thank you for sharing this song which is in the unusual scale of mi pentatonic (rarely found, but occasionally in native-Amnerican songs). Do you have an original source for this song you could share? Thanks.
