VA - An Historical Album of Blackfoot Indian Music (1979)


The Blackfoot, purportedly known as such because of their dark-colored moccasins, originally ranged across the northern Great Plains region (Montana, Alberta, and Saskatchewan). These recordings, made in different settings from the late 1890s to the mid-1960s, capture a period when Blackfoot lifestyle, culture, and music underwent major change. They also represent evolving fieldwork recording methods during those seven decades, as phonocylinders and phonowire gave way to tape recording. (folkways)

Fascinating. It's unusual to hear native american music that isn't just all war chants.
