Instruments in Native American Music
On August 3, 1990, President H. W. Bush declared the month of November National American Indian Heritage Month. (We refer to it now as Native American Heritage Month.) While certainly any month is the perfect month to learn about and celebrate Native peoples, November is a time especially encouraged to do so.
With that in mind, we’re exploring some of the instruments often used and treasured in indigenous music. From turtle shelled rattles to eagle bone whistles, we’re going to hear some incredible Native American music in today’s episode. On a personal note, this has been my favorite episode of the podcast thus far to research and create. I can’t wait for you to learn new things about Native American music!
