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.
