This 1949 album was recorded by American ethnomusicologist Willard Rhodes (190-1992) with the cooperation of the United States Office of Indian Affairs. The selection from the Sioux community of the Dakotas include a Rabbit Dance and other love songs, a Sun Dance, and an Honoring (or public recognition) Song. The Navajo tribes of the Southwest are highlighted through songs such as a Riding Song, a children's Song of Happiness, a female Spinning Dance, and the distinctive Night Chant, sung in male falsetto. Rhodes provided an introductory essay and track notes.

Album · 2008 · 45 Songs. 20. Navajo: Song of Happiness. 21. Navajo: Silversmith Song. 22. Navajo:Corn Grinding Song. Native American Drums. American Indian Music.

It is an album which continues to attract a great deal of interest not only for the quality of the performances, but because of when they were recorded, in the last years of the decade following the end of World War II. The wave of independent Native American recording labels was not to start for at least another ten years after this, so these tracks represent some of the rare documentation of sounds being made in the name of music in the Sioux and Navajo worlds during this period.
