Abstract The collection is comprised of eight rare 78 rpm shellac records of Native American chant recordings. Recorded in the early 1950s by Manuel Archuleta, the first Native American in the United States to own his own record label, the chants preserve the songs and dances from several Southwestern pueblos, including the Hopi, Zuni, and San Juan peoples.
