Each major web page contains a sound file from a wide range of Native American music which plays only on Internet Explorer or a link to either a YouTube video or another source. Each is credited and has a link to more information on the artists and purchase. If the music gets tiresome, mute the sound on the taskbar. By the way, if you would like to listen to samples of a wide range of Native American contemporary and traditional music, play the Jukebox on the front page of the Native American Music Association web site.
