Oldest Indian tribe song (beautiful Native American song)

I've had this song for many years, it was recorded in 1913 and belonged to my Grandfather. I was trusted to keep it safe when he passed away. I wanted to share this because it's beautiful I hope you like it. For what it's worth, the images in this video are of my Seneca tribe making them children of the singers. The song is one of the oldest recordings of Seneca children that I know of.

I searched for this and it's not called the dawn song but it is very nice
and I'm glad you and your grandfather shared it with everyone. It's
very honorable that you didn't try to make money from it and now it is
enjoyed all over the world.

Hi Yakokwe, I am writing a research paper on music more or less and one of
the various things I'm talking about is music throughout different
cultures. I was wondering if it would be alright for me to use this song,
and if so could you provide me with your grandfather's name and maybe some
of the meaning of the song (If possible)? Thanks!
