Looking for something culturally relevant and/or historically accurate to do with your music class before Thanksgiving? Look no further! Ani Couni is a traditional Iroquois lullaby. Included in this file is an arrangement for Orff and percussion accompaniment.
Along with the accompaniment, students will learn some light background information on the Iroquois tribe as well as the translation of the lyrics.
Teach this as part of a "country of the month" activity, a Thanksgiving celebration, or just to introduce your students to the beautiful music of the Iroquois tribe!
