The English Folk Dance and Song Soc have brought out a book for teachers about using childrens rhymes in the classroom. Before I recommend it too widely has anyone used it? Is it useful? I'm not a teacher myself but our dance club meets in a school so we have contacts.

Also curious.

Track list here: efdss

I think it's more to do with the mumming-related activities of the West Indies often known as John Canoe or Jokanu. There were some children's workshops on this at Whitby this year.

People continue to comment without reading the EFDSS prospectus, linked in previous post. It is a mixed bag of playground songs, etc.

Reminds me of the old joke:
"Can you spell "Kanakanaka" ?"
"Yes but I don't know when to stop"
!

Perhaps you should ask on a education forum?

Mo, I'll post an inquiry to the "Pourparler" list (which you may be able to look up on Yahoo lists). This is a group of North American folks who do traditional dance (e.g., all varieties of folk dance) work with school-age folks and their families and communities. I've not heard any comment there about it yet.

"John Kanaka" has nothing to do with "John Canoe," although there may be a distant relationship. "John Kanaka" comes from the many Polynesians (mostly Hawaiians) who sailed as crew aboard European and American whalers in the 19th century. They were called "Kanakas" or "Canackers" based on the Hawaiian word "kanaka" which means "person" or "human being."

Mo,

We've got some good resources here, so apparently nobody's gone further afield yet. Only Bob Walser (who has UK connections) replied, saying of the video,
"I got a look at it last year and found it fascinating. It was shot in
the Camden Town area of London and includes some wonderful urban handclapping. My recollection is that the performances are (how shall I say this?) perhaps unpolished, but often entertaining. I haven't seen the book yet - hope to pick one up next time I'm over."

Pick one up and give us a review, why don't you, Mo? :-)

The Kanakas were also "blackbirded" to Australia, to slave away on sugar cane farms and the like, in Australia's early ("white") history.
I think (?) they were more from the Soloman Islands area ... many of their descendants form part of Queensland's multicultural population today.

Where's Bob Bolton - he'll know the story!


Cheers! R-J

Well, there's my little thing I learned today.

The line in "Old Maui" about the Kanakas all around has slightly puzzled me for years. I wondered why Maui should be full of Canucks but never got around to asking anyone, much less researching it myself. Thanks, Rev.
