Frances DensmoreProject underway revisits century-old recordings made at Standing Rock

Before singing, Red Weasel bowed his head in prayer, “Wakan'tanka, hear me.  This day I am to tell your word.  But without sin I shall speak. The tribe shall Live.  Behold me for I am humble.  From above watch me.  You are always the truth, listen to me, my friends and relatives, sitting here, and I shall be at peace.  May our voices be heard at the future goal you have prepared for us.”    

From Teton Sioux Music & Culture by Frances Densmore (1918)
