Thread Name: Origins: Ten Little Indians
Subject: RE: req/add: 10 Little Indians

Thanks for posting that example of 10 little Indians.

That example-actually the last verse of that example prompted me to start this thread:

Btw, you mentioned singing this rhyme in a class, led by our teacher, in kindergarten in {19}82. Was this in the United States? If not, where was it? I'd also be curious if it was in a state where that has a significant population of Indians.

And yes, times have changed. I think in this instance, for the best as I'm glad that the 10 little Indians song is no longer sung in public schools {at least I hope it isn't sung any longer}.

Studied yes. Sung for fun or pleasure, no.
