Honestly, as the name of a fiddle tune, I won't by default assume a Native context.
Thanks @OLChemist for providing a link to the song.

Welcome howard.rains to pw.com online community. Thanks for thinking to ask folks here. I enjoyed your playing of the song.

In listening to it, it doesn't sound NDN to me. I was more struck by it having an inviting feeling to a non-NDN type of gathering. Kinda a prelude giving me a little taste of more fiddle music that's to come if I were to show up to the big shindig.
