Vincent Tumamait (Chumash): Native American Stories and Songs

Tumamait, Vincent (Chumash): Native American Stories/Songs

"Highly Recommended. This program offers viewers a rare opportunity to view a personal and up-close profile of Native American Vincent Tumamait (Chumash), who shares stories, songs and artifacts to celebrate his Native American ancestry. A program that viewers will cherish for years to come." -National Media Review
Vincent Tumamait (Chumash) was a full-blooded Chumash Native American who lived in California. One of his great joys was to celebrate his Native American heritage by visiting groups dressed in a traditional ribbon shirt and present Native American stories and songs accompanied only by his simple musical instruments. This treasured classic program is divided into three parts. Part 1: An Introduction - Vincent Tumamait welcomes all viewers with a Native American "Welcome" song; then, through a personal retrospective, offers the history of his people, the Chumash of California. Lastly, he closes with three stirring Native American songs. Part 2: Chumash Stories - Legends and tales of Coyote have been passed down through generations of Native Americans. Here Vincent Tumamait shares a number of stories he learned as a boy, and many he has told to his children and grandchildren. After his stories he shares more stirring Native American songs. Part 3: Native American Artifacts - To conclude his personal retrospective, Vincent Tumamait discusses artifacts utilized by the Chumash people. Also, in a farewell gesture, he closes with several Native American songs. Produced by Chip Taylor. 02/10DE PIJ 60 min.
