This work is based on an authentic folk music tradition and oral history of a large group of Native American tribes of northeastern North America. The title is a literal translation of their name for themselves. The piece relies heavily on traditional percussion instruments, with optional substitutes suggested, in an approachable yet powerful presentation.
Bar Chimes absent Cabasa Rattle, Powwow Drum and Buffalo Drum substituted Minor (unfixable) errors Contra Alto Clarinet may substitute Contrabass Clarinet with transposed part Baritone T.C. may substitute for Baritone/Euphonium with transposed part
