about

Pilawah is what I have chosen to call the reconstruction of a traditional Shawnee song. The name is taken from the lyrics. The song is believed to be related to the Turkey Clan of the Shawnee, to be sung to the children of the tribe. It was transcribed by the daughter of a frontiersman who was captured by Shawnee Warriors in his youth.

lyrics

Masa ki'ta la'va, kia wa ni o ni, ko ya, ko ya,
Masa ki'ta la'va, kia wa ni o ni, ko ya, ko, ya,
Pilawah, Pilawah
