 Southern Cheyenne Women's Songs

By: Virginia Giglio

Playing, joking, teaching, courting, encouraging, and praying:  such everyday activities and the songs that go with them are the subjects of this unique view of contemporary Southern Cheyenne women's music.  In addition to musical transcriptions and textual translations, the author provides the songs' history and the circumstances and backgrounds of the singer-composers, who shared the songs' meanings and the social settings in which they are used in the ongoing Cheyenne musical tradition.  Includes a sampling of closely-related Arapaho Indian songs.

"The historical and cultural background is excellent.  The handling of the song texts is superb.." -- Judith Vander, author of Songprints

In addition to having value for ethnomusicologists, cultural anthropologists, and other students of Indian cultural expression, will also be useful in women's studies and to readers with a general interest in things Indian.

266 pages, 34 songs, 3 maps, 25 illustrations, glossary, index.
