Newe Hupia: Shoshoni Poetry Songs
Newe Hupia presents the poetry of Shoshoni songs in written form, with both figurative and literal English translations, and through recorded performances by Earl and Beverly Crum. An introduction and commentary discuss the Shoshoni language and the cultural background, meaning, forms, and performance contexts of the songs here organized into dance, medicine, and other categories. Glossaries of Shoshoni terms are included. The first major linguistic study of Shoshoni songs, Newe Hupia marks a significant achievement in the preservation of Shoshoni language and culture. Moreover, it displays the lyricism, pleasant sounds, and evocation of the natural world that permeate Shoshoni music.
