  • $15.00


Born in 1905 in Pine Ridge, South Dakota, William Horncloud is perhaps the most well-known and respected traditional Lakota singer of the 20th century. His repertoire of songs reached back in the 1800's and he was instrumental in keeping Lakota culture alive. With this recording, Horncloud performs classic songs of the Rabbit Dance, a traditional Lakota social dance whose words are often humorous but most often reflect the sadness of unrequited or painful love.
