Native American Music Resources
Foundational elements of Native American music have influenced us all and present-day music makers are telling important stories from which we could learn.
Music Will Song Pack
We’ve created a Song Pack that has been shared with thousands of teachers in our network and highlights Indigenous American artists across a wide variety of styles, locations, and eras including:

Expanding Native American Music Education
Including the study of diverse music in music education is not only important for developing cultural understanding but also for representation — helping all students to feel seen and valued. Educators across the country are working to bring culturally responsive music education into classrooms but this is no small task, and we need your support to make this vision a reality.
Support the Work
Help us to continue our community listening and planning efforts to better understand the needs of schools that serve Native youth. Starting in Oklahoma, the state with the largest Native American populations yet the lowest funding towards Native American education curricula (NCAI 2019), this is just the beginning of a year-round, nationwide initiative.
