Ethnomusicologist Frances Densmore recording Blackfoot chief Mountain Chief for the Bureau of American Ethnology in 1916

  1. US Govt. "I know we're systematically destroying their culture and all but please could we get some recordings?"

  2. That thought came into my mind for sure. You wonder if the chief had the chance to say his word back in the day when agreeing to come. And with how much respect he was treated. How was he compensated?

  3. I'm sure the recording is accessible 😊 you don't need to feel cheated. Pictures can make a sound sometimes I feel.

  4. Does anyone ever wonder if there were a super large population of American Indians, would there be a lot more balder eagles flying around

  5. You mean Native Americans I guess 😊 there would be a larger population of native peoples in many areas. But colonising populations had others plans. History bro you know how it is.
