Description
For centuries the American Indian literary tradition was primarily an oral one. Since written languages were rare among native North and South American cultures, all literature-myth, legend, story, poetry-was passed along the generations through memory and the spoken word. Herbert Joseph Spinden collected these at a time-around 1933-when the Indian poetic voice was a nameless one. The songs included here are of that period and his translations of Tewa ritual and secular songs are remarkable for their sensitivity to and consonance with Tewa (Pueblo) thought. This copyrighted edition includes an early introductory essay and scholarly notes by Dr. Spinden, early photographs of the Tewa from the collection of Mrs. Spinden, and a preface by Alice Marriott.
