GUEST,Fretless American Indian Turkey in the Straw (11) American Indian Turkey in the Straw 26 Oct 00

Some years ago, the TV show Northern Exposure aired an episode in which the background music consisted of the tune Turkey in the Straw, sung a cappella, with words in an American Indian dialect/language. The same song is played as background in one of the exhibit halls in the New York City branch of the Museum of the American Indian. Curators at the museum have not been able to identify the source of the recording, nor have I been able to locate it by other means. Does anyone have suggestions for a source for this intreguing piece of music? .
