Tune of the Day: Maliseet Love Song

Traditional American song

This song was collected in the early 1900s by New York City born ethnomusicologist Natalie Curtis, who published it in The Indians' Book: An Offering by the American Indians of Indian Lore, Musical and Narrative, to Form a Record of the Songs and Legends of their Race (1907).

The Maliseet, or Wolastoqiyik, are the Indigenous people of the Saint John River valley; their territory extends across the current borders of New Brunswick and Quebec in Canada, and parts of Maine in the United States.

Thanks to Heather for suggesting this tune!
