the Chippewa Indians of the
Walpole Island reservation in
Michigan were preparing for a
celebration, they had to send for
one of Miss Densmore's books to
learn some of their own tribal
songs, there being no living Indian
there who remembered them.
"Miss Densmore, with no inten
tion of specializing in Indian music,
kid her foundation for the work
well. Her first serious study of
music was made at the Oberlin
Conservatory in Ohio, after which
she went to Boston to study piano
with Carl Baermann and counter
point with John K. Payne of
Harvard. She was a piano pupil
of Leopold Godowsky in Chicago
and an organ pupil of Hamlin
Hunt in Minneapolis. For several
years she taught piano in St Paul
and played a church organ in Red
Wing.
"In the summer of 1905 shea
made a vacation trip to the White
Earth Indian reservation and wrote
down by hand a good many Indian
songs simply to satisfy the strong
personal fascination exerted upon
her by the subject. In 1907
sheday
went again to White Earth and at
the end of her busy vacation wrote
an article on the music of the
Ojibways, which she sent to the
Bureau of Ethnology in Washing
ton and suggested that an appro
priation be made to continue the
work.
"With the prodigality character
istic of the government in scientific
matters the Bureau of Ethnology
sent her $150 and told her to spend
it freely.
"That magnificent appropriation
did the business. Miss Densmore
added vision and determination to
her $150 and went to work as
seriously as if it had been $150,000.
She bought a phonographic equip
ment, went lo Leech Lake and
there her first phonogr.tphic rec
ords of Indian songs were made
by an Ojibway Indian named Red
Blanket. In the fall of 1897 she
reported to the Ethnological bu
reau and asked for more money to
enable her to go to White Earth
where an annual "fall payment"
would bring a large number of
Indians together. A small ad
ditional sum was sent her she
went to White Euth, recorded
more songs on the'phonograph and
sent them to Washington.
"Miss Dcnsmora's success in
inducing the reluctcnt red man to
reveal his tribal songs to & pale
face and allow her to make phono
graphic records finally aroused
such interest in Washington that
the Bureau of Ethnology sent for
her.
"In February, 1908, she went
to Washington and lectured before
the Anthropological association.
As a result she obtained serious
recognition, was placed perman
ently upon the staff of the Bureau
of Ethnology and remained in
Washington three months, system
atizing her plans and placing them
upon a firm basis.
Since 1908 she has spent many
weeks amctag the Chippewas of
Minnesota and Wisconsin, the
Sioux of North and South Dakota,
the Mandans and Itidastas at Fort
Berthold and the northern Utes of
the Uintah and Ouray reservations
in Utah. She has recorded up-
