Kayowajineh - Sheet Music for Native American Flute

This song comes from the personal songbook of the legendary folk singer Pete Seeger. It appears in Where Have All the Flowers Gone ([Seeger-P 2009], page 87) with the notation:

Forty years ago I learned the Seneca canoe song "Ka-yo-wa-ji-neh," from Tehanetorens (Ray Fadden). I have tried to teach it to others exactly as I learned it.

Recordings

Here is an excerpt of this song from the album Fifty Sail on Newburgh Bay, sung by Pete Seeger and Ed Renehan. I've also included a flute recording I made on October 17, 2011 of the arrangement on this page:
