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.
