Date:[1908 February]
Description:Museum (14- Catalogue) notes: "1) First song of what was said to be a series of three songs, omitted but properly following number 773 (i.e., 14-773, or 24-1155) 2) The series containing songs 904-906 (i.e. 24-1286 through 24-1288) is doubtful, having been added by the informant in obtaining the ceremony and later added by him when several other omitted songs were obtained." Keeling catalog note: "This cycle, also called 'tall cane' or Ahta'-amalya'e, is a long series with more plot than most, according to Kroeber. The singer strikes a double beat on a Chemehuevi basket with a stick. There is no dancing (Kroeber 1925:764)." Distributed on California Indian Music Project, Southeast region, tape 13, side A. Original cylinder 14-904. 150 speed.
