Produced to accompany Howard Bad Hand's book Native American Healing
(Dog Soldier Press 2009)  HSP 02-0502  $16.95

Howard Bad Hand and Tom Teegarden sing with authentic pace and volume, accompanying themselves with hand drums just as they would in ceremony. This is as close to the real thing as you can get outside of an actual ceremony!

A note about the song titles:
In practice, ceremonial songs are not given titles. However, for the purpose of distinguishing the songs incorporated in the text of Native American Healing, Howard chose the most salient line of lyrics as the title of each song. Traditionally, lowampi songs are grouped in categories by the function they serve in the ceremony. On this recording, the songs the listener will experience fall into the following 15 categories (song numbers correspond to the song numbers used in the songtexts below--note that songs 9 and 10 are in the same category):

Canupa Ojuyapi Olowan (Pipe Filling Song)
Canupa Opagin Olowan (Pipe-Offering Song)
Tatioye Topa Olwan (Four Directions Song)
Wakan Tanka Taolowan (Great Spirit Song)
Lel Etunwan Yo (Personal Sacred Song)
Wicakicopi Olowan (Spirit Calling Song)
Tiuma Hiyupi Olowan (Spirit Entrance Song)
Wakan Ki Wacipi Olowan (Spirit Dancing Songs
Wakan Ki Woglakapi Olowan (Spirit Talking Song)
Wakan Ki Woglakapi Olowan (Spirit Talking Song)
Wakan Woayupte Olowan (Spirit Responding Song)
Wakan Kinanpe Olowan (Spirit Departure Song)
Wakan Wicak'upi Olowan (Offering Song)
Woawanyanke Olowan (Protection Song)
Wakn Iglustanpi Olowan (Ceremony Completion Song)
