This project represents some interesting weavings of "cultures" on several levels. Chad Hamill's book explores what indigenous songs brought to the Catholic mass. This website demonstrates a successful collaboration between Press and Library staff. Finally, the First Peoples initiative represents an innovative partnership among several university presses, large and small, to use Mellon funding to further scholarship about First Peoples.
The ancillary Songs of Power and Prayer website, featuring audio recordings, is now live, with many thanks to First Peoples and to Ryan Ordway here in the library. Enjoy the site and its sounds but don't forget to check out the book!
