This  Mohawk dance song, from Six Songs of Early Canada,  is one of seven collected in 1911 in the Huron village of Lorette (near Quebec city) by Marius Barbeau.  After a ceremonial feast, these nonsense syllables would ring in the night air, inciting the revellers to a long night of dancing.  Also available in SATB (S-54a) and SAB (S-74a).
