Abstract The collection of Luke Eric Lassiter contains a sound recording of Kiowa songs on audio cassette, accompanying field notes for the recording, and a copy of his 1995 dissertation written in fulfillment of a doctoral degree in anthropology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His dissertation titled is an ethnographic study, which examines the communal context for the Kiowa Tribe of Oklahoma's Gourd Dance. Kiowa music traditions have a strong relationship to the American Indian tribe's traditional dances. Lassiter's 1994 field recordings include the Kiowa Gourd dance and Kiowa hymns. Acquired as part of the Southern Folklife Collection.
Creator Lassiter, Luke Eric.
