Petter Hymns Vol.I

Recording by singing group for DKMC archives, of old hymns translated into Cheyenne by Dr. Rodolph Petter, early Mennonite missionary.

James Shoulderblade. leader, Lame Deer. Gladys Oldmouse, Louise Fisher, Floyd Fisher, Wayne Leman, Elena Leman, all of Busby. Also Dave Graber, Hardin. Translated hymns are sung from the Cheyenne hymnbook as James Shoulderblade directs.

These hymns were translated and learned beginning around 60 to 80 years ago. In recent years only a few of these hymns were remembered, but with the writing and publishing of the Cheyenne hymnbook (with James Shoulderblade's able assistant), it has become possible to sing many of the translated Cheyenne hymns previously inaccessible because the English gospel songs from which they were inaccessible because of English gospel songs of which they were derived are forgotten among the larger English- speaking population.

Numbers refer to hymn number in the Cheyenne hymns in the Cheyenne hymnbook, Tsese-Ma'heone-Nemeototse, available from the White River Cheyenne Mennonite Church, Box 37, Busby Mt 59034.
