Formal title:
Hote Casella Collection
Extent:
2.5 linear feet
Date range:
1946-1977
Abstract:
Hote Casella, Cherokee, was classically trained as a mezzo-soprano opera singer at both UCLA and the Julliard School of Music. She began her professional career at a relatively young age and toured the United States and Europe performing a classical music repertoire with initially only a portion of her stage show dedicated to Native American songs. Over time, she began to research Native American songs from the 18th and 19th centuries then fully incorporating them into her performances. Eventually the Native songs became her sole focus and she fully took on the role of a Native American cultural embassador. Her professional career took her throughout the United States from the late 1940s until the early 1980s. The collection is an overview of her career as a professional musician and includes promotional materials, newspaper articles, sheet music, photographs and aluminum core lacquer recordings.
