Hi again :) another lyrics request.

I went to a local pow-wow a few years back as part of a school assignment. At one point they played a very moving song to honor those who had fought and died in wars but unfortunately all I can remember about it was that it was called Soldier Boy and was just drums and chanting voices. Anyone know anything about this song? Thanks I appreciate it :)

No this song was different...it had a distinctive Native American sound to it. One part was something like " Aiii-yaaa oh soldier boy...soldier boy " or something to that effect. They played it when they invited members of the audience who had family members who were soldiers to come inside the dancing circle and dance.

Could it be Buffy Saint Marie's Soldier Blue?

I've been to several pow-wows in Minnesota and Wisconsin and all the singing I've ever heard was in native languages, not English.

A song and dance to honor veterans and relatives of deceased veterans has been an important feature of every pow-wow I've seen.

AIROS (American Indian Radio On Satellite), and Native American Public Telecommunications might be good places to start if you want to explore native music. They have a long list of links to other Indian organizations and resources, including musicians and record companies.
