Omaka Teca

This is an unattributed tune (the text is attributed to Joseph Renville) with a Dakota tune name from the 1911 “Mandarin Chinese” (NOT!) Dakota Odowan. It says it is harmonized by James R. Murray (composer of MUELLER [Away in a manger] and NUN IST SIE ERSCHIENEN among many other tunes), who also harmonized the three tunes in the book that are labeled specifically as “Dakota Native Airs”: LACQUIPARLE, LA FRAMBOISE, and RENVILLE, all of which are thought to have been at least in part composed by Joseph Renville.

This is one of several tunes in the book that I think are probably as likely to be “Dakota Native Airs” as the three so designated.
