HEARTBEAT: VOICES OF FIRST NATIONS WOMEN is a compilation of Native American women's music.

Liner Note Authors: Ranya Green; Howard Bass.

This spectrum of contemporary Native American women singers (and one instrumentalist) in music ranges from the strictly traditionalist to versions that have reworked tradition lightly, mostly through influences from the `60s folk movement -- Buffy St. Marie, who is somewhat emblematic of that process, contributes one song. ~ John Storm Roberts, Original Music
