328              Music of the Watebs.
The North-American Indians have quite a notion of harmony, if one may judge by these specimens of their music. Almost all the inhabitants of that part of the world have a remarkable capacity for music. The song which follows is sung by the traders when nearing a strange crew. The chief usually approaches first, singing and crossing his arms, as a sign of friendship.
SONG OF WELCOME OF THE TRADERS.
