Thread Name: Lyr Req: Native American folk song
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Native American folk song
I found this forum topic on google searching for the epslling of lyrics to another Native American song I know. I'm trying to find out if I'm spelling it right, something like "hayo ipsi nia" I heard it when I was a kid on some educational show, but it may have been just vocables. It's annoying me because I'd like to write this down in a journal I keep chants and meditations in, but I can't spell it. It's one chant that's repeated over and over again with different notes and the pattern is like "hayo, hayo ispi nia..." so am I spelling it right?
