The songs below were recorded at the BuildaBridge–Healing Tree Arts for Hope Camp for kids at Lame Deer, Montana in August, 2010. Mr. Old Mouse generously gave of his time and expertise with both the kids of the camp and visiting faculty in learning about the history and culture of the flute in the Northern Cheyenne, and his own selection (chosen) as the flute maker for the Northern Cheyenne. In addition he demonstrated how the flute is made and helped the children to make their own flute models. Songs were recorded with his permission and our gratitude in order to learn about Northern Cheyenne music culture. We understand that performance would be altered in actual situations and with traditional drums.
