“Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” in Ute Now Available!


With the assistance of my daughter, Maya, the wonderful video of Noleda Badback singing “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” in Ute is now uploaded to the MGOL YouTube Channel. Listening to her sing this at the end of the MGOL workshop I presented in Cortez, Montana last week inspired me to share it with others as quickly as possible.  I loved her introduction, her singing of the song, and her translation.  See for yourself:

If you have versions of songs or rhymes that would be good to add to the MGOL Playlists, please feel free to submit them! I am always looking to expand this resource for children’s librarians and early childhood educators.

Thank you, Noleda!
