  • Does anyone know this song?

    I think it's a southern song, but I'm not sure. I haven't heard it in a couple of years, but the chorus sounds something like this:

    anura honga washusay alinga nepe daoea

    It's probably spelled completely wrong, I just spelled it as it sounds. I would be very grateful if someone could tell me what it's called.
    Thanks!

    Yeah, I know it.

    Its a Ponca song about their main man the "NuDon' Honga."
    Powwows will continue to evolve in many directions. It is inevitable.

        The leader has come to look for a brave and courageous warrior. nudaN honga is the leader. washushe is brave. Uthina tibedoN; he came looking.

        In the second part, it names the man. MoNchu ZhiNga (Little Bear), the man's name.

        It is a Ponca "war dance" song. The 'th' sound sounds nearly like an English 'l'. Capital 'N' is a nazalized 'n'.

          Thanks...

          While I know this song and its meaning...I feel it is more appropriate for others to share.

          Great GZ!

          To get a true picture of your purpose in life, you only get the whole picture when you listen with your mind, your ears and your heart. This way The Creator has a direct connection with you and only you...no outside interference.

          When you follow the will of IT that created you, understanding that your purpose is not for you...but for IT and all that IT has created, there can be no wrong except failure to be obedient. Only then do we jeopardize the gifts we are given.

          Its not the final destination that defines us, rather the journey taken!
