Hello everyone! Thanks for checking in with us here at Allegro Harmonies.
A student of mine is just starting to learn about Native Americans in her Social Studies class. Upon learning this, I was so excited to sit down and write a tune about the people who know the land in this country best! I was SO tempted to incorporate one of my favorite Disney characters/historical figures, Pocahontas, into this tune, but I ultimately decided I needed to leave that side of my personality out of the song equation. 🙂
Since this student is in the very preliminary stages of learning about the Native Americans, I kept the “key words” in the song simple: e.g. Tribes, Moccasins, and Reservations. I’m still deciding on a chord progression to accompany these lyrics, but I thought I’d share the words in the meantime along with the follow-up worksheet to accompany the use of the song.
