During the 1980s, staff members of the American Folklife Center worked together with the Omaha tribe to return copies of the early cylinder recordings to the community and to select appropriate historical recordings for an LP/cassette release. Staff also documented current Omaha songs at the annual pow wows in Macy, Nebraska. Shown is a poster from that historical event.
