Length: approx. 2¾ mins. Sounds best with the 1st tenor doubled.
This intermezzo two-step appears to be a follow on to his early Indian theme compositions namely Navajo (1903)
, his first big success, and Seminole (1904)
. The composition itself is a bright and pleasing affair in AABBCCB form with a 6-bar introduction and its melodies are more or less shared between the treble and 1st tenor voices.
The cover of the original sheet music shows an upright Indian maiden, arms outstretched in posture suggesting worship of the great outdoors, against a forest background and a grounded empty canoe in a tranquil rippled stream. Very sentimental indeed!
