Introduction
The American composer Charles Wakefield Cadman was especially interested in American Indian music. His opera Shanewis was produced at the Metropolitan Opera in 1918. At Dawning was written in 1906 and had an enormous popularity which endures to this day. Recordings were made by such artists as Paul Robeson and John Charles Thomas.
