Indian Music.
Gurnoe, Katherine J.
American Indian music is the topic of this curriculum unit from the Task Force on Minority Cultures. After a brief introduction explaining the importance of music to the Indian people, there are sections on: 1) the instruments, which provides a description of each instrument, including the type of materials used in its construction, how the instrument was made, and how it was played; 2) the dances, with the significance given for each; and, 3) the songs, under what circumstances they were sung and by whom. A short annotated bibliography is given listing books on the songs and stories of the American Indian. Other documents in the series are SO 005 534 through SO 005 551. (OPH)
