Morning Song (Yokut Tachi)


The Yokut Tachi people (of California, USA) would sing songs each morning at dawn. This song was the last one before they began work. (source: Sail Away: 155 American Folk Songs to sing, read, and play, Eleanor G. Locke, 1981)


(Native American folk song – Yokut Tachi Tribe)

Ha no ma ha no ma,
ha no ma ha na na-a
ha no ma ha na na-a
ha no ma ha na na
ha no ma ha na na

ta wa na tsar hay yay
ta wa na tse hey yay
ta wa na tsay hay
ha na ma ha na na
(repeat 3 times or ad lib.)
