Words and Place

Words and Place

"Through a unique blend of imagery and sound, this website captures the complex oral traditions of Native American communities in the American Southwest. Songs are sung and stories told within the landscapes which inspired them. The tapes explore a world in which words and place possess symbolic and time-honored significance. Native oral tradition generates a history separate and distinct from the written history of the West."
