About this Recording
About this Recording
Early in 2009, my long-time friend, Ervin Keeswood, Sr., Chairman of the 2009 Navajo Nation Fair Powwow, called me to see if Eagle Whistles would serve as an invited drum in September. He explained to me that he missed hearing the original-style singing and songs, and he wanted the people in Window Rock to hear this kind of singing. It was with this thought in mind that we came to Dinétah (Land of the Diné).

Bill Runsabove
Song sung for Grand Entry, composed by Bill Runsabove

Lakota Horse Song, learned from Pat Bad Hand Sr.
