Thanks, friends; hope the thread continues through the weekend.
That wonderful song is also on "Straw into Gold" first tape/CD; it features weaving and spinning stories. (surprise).
Wish I could join mediaring, but I do not have a soundcard.
Ann Cameron's Daughters of Copper Woman (book) goes more into her work among the Nootka. Don't try telling the stories in public, tho,' she WILL find you andtell you not to.
oops: here's another song, from same tape:
The night is long, the dance goes on, gliding round and round, we hold each other's hands, and weave ourselves in a circle,
... one of "straw into Gold" is a presbyterian minister, which I find vvery interesting ...
