    Field recordings of North American Indian music, 1940-1952
    While working for the Bureau of Indian Affairs with equipment supplied in part by the Library of Congress, Willard Rhodes of Columbia University recorded the music of fifty Indian tribes living primarily in the western United States. From the start of the project in 1940, the ethnomusicologist found that Indian music was "not a relic of the dead past but a vital, dynamic force." He documented, in addition to traditional genres, Christian hymns in native languages, songs with English words, and other music of recent composition.
