Songs across America

Kenai fifth-graders perform Native songs from across continentFifth-graders at Mountain View Elementary School in Kenai used music as a vehicle to take fellow students and parents on a journey across North America's American Indian cultures recently.

The trip began in the Northeast, with a presentation of a Mohawk song, one that likely originated in the Southeast, and progressed across the Great Plains to the Southwest. The presentation then went to the Pacific Northwest and concluded in Alaska.
