PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Looking for a way to incorporate Native American music into your music lessons? This comprehensive set, focused on the tribes of the Iroquois nation, could be used for Thanksgiving or during any time of the year you want to teach about the music and culture of Native Americans. The set includes the following:

*Background of the tribe: This PDF can be viewed like a slideshow by going to "view," then "full screen." This file includes background about the Iroquois tribes, including geography, customs, type of food, photographs, and more! You could use this after teaching students a song from the set, as a way to delve deeper into the culture/ tribe history.
*Songs: The set includes three songs of the Iroquois, including "Paddling my canoe," "Iroqouis Rain Dance," and "Uncle Sam Rabbit Dance." Each song includes notation, as well as melodic and rhythmic concept suggestions and other notes.
*Slideshows to help teach each song: 2-3 Slideshows are included for each song to help teach concepts and instrumental parts. The following are included:
--Paddling my Canoe: Slideshows for fa, low sol, and tam-ti (dotted quarter/ eighth)
--Iroquois Rain Dance: Slideshows for low la and tam-ti
--Uncle Sam Rabbit Dance: 6/8 and low la

Please note that some of the pages in each slideshow are duplicated from other slideshows (such as lyrics slides), as I designed the slideshows to be used in one lesson with a specific concept. I did not include the duplicate pages in the page count.

Download the preview for more information.

You can also purchase this set at a discount with my Northeastern Woodlands Tribes Bundled Set. The bundle includes a song index, with all of the songs from all three sets indexed by tribe and musical concept. If you purchased the three sets separately and would like the song index, send me an email at aileen.miracle@yahoo.com.

Here are my other two Native American sets:
Music of the Ottawa
