The project aimed to collect songs sung with lyrics consisting of identifiable words. I would like to acknowledge Shirlee Crow Shoe for serving as my research associate and conducting interviews with elders in Blackfoot. I would also like to thank the lullaby providers, the late James Boy and the late Susie White Calf. The photo of the late James Boy and Shirlee Crow Shoe was taken in 2007. The process of recording and interlinear analysis of the lyrics is provided in the articles.
