"Fletcher and Francis La Flesche, her Omaha coworker and adopted son, divided the songs into three categories: religious ones, to be sung by a certain class either through initiation or inheritance; social ones, involving dances and games, always sung by a group; and ones to be sung singly, including dream songs, love songs, captive songs, prayer songs, death songs, sweat lodge songs, and songs of thanks. John Comfort Fillmore, a professional musician, added a "Report on the Structural Peculiarities of the Music."" "Those interested in a vital aspect of Indian culture will want to own this book, which contains the musical scores as well as the native-language words for the songs."--Jacket

The hako : song, pipe, and unity in a Pawnee Calumet ceremony by Alice C Fletcher( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perhaps the most detailed description of a Calumet Ceremony was recorded near the turn of the century by ethnographer Alice C. Fletcher. Fletcher witnessed the Hako, a version of the Calumet Ceremony practiced by the Chaui clan of the Pawnee. With the invaluable assistance of Tahirussawichi, a Pawnee Ku'rahus or ceremonial leader, and renowned Indian scholar James R. Murie, himself a Pawnee, the author describes in marvelous detail the intricate rhythm and structure of the ceremony. Each song of the Hako is transcribed, translated, interpreted by the Pawnee Ku'rahus, and later analyzed by the author. Fletcher concludes that the Hako promised longevity, fertility, and prosperity to individuals and worked to insure "friendship and peace" between clans and tribes. The Hako, originally published in 1904, is introduced by Helen Myers, an associate professor of music at Trinity College and the ethnomusicology editor of the New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians

The Nez Perces since Lewis and Clark by Kate C McBeth( Book )

5 editions published in 1908 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Nez Perces were a tribe that played an important role in the Lewis and Clark expedition. Kate McBeth lived among the Nez Perces for over 20 years and should be considered a reliable resource. The smaller, lesser-known Nez Perces often lived in the shadow of the larger Sioux tribe. The author has done her best to rectify that with her personal experiences. Frontier historians and ethnographers alike should enjoy this account
