Every schoolboy knows and thrills to these lines from Longfellow's long poem "The Song of Hiawatha": By the shores of Gitche Gumee, By the shining, Big-Sea-Water, Stood the wigwam of Nokomis, Daughter of the Moon, Nokomis. Hiawatha, whose life is recounted in the poem, was an Indian folk hero and warrior who performed miracles for the tribes and helped them in many ways. The poem is based on Indian tales and stories. Composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor wrote a very successful oratorio "Hiawatha" which can be found at http://essayforcollege.org/ in Arts section.
