Native American Heritage Month – Focus On Music

Here is our final posting honoring Native American Heritage month.

Previously we’ve taken a look at fiction books, non-fiction books and movies that offer a glimpse into Native American history and culture.

Now it is time for some music!

These titles are all available for streaming, on demand, from the Southern Tier Library System’s digital music service Freegal, and if you click on the album cover for any of the titles the Freegal Music page for the album will display, then you just enter your library card number and your PIN (the last four digits of your phone number) to play the music.

And without further ado, here are the suggested listening titles:
