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!

@SHADOWBEAR82763 yes, i am well aware, my mother's dad was cherokee, he
lived in Huntington, but my mom's mom was blackfoot as i was told. But she
was born in Otter Creek near Parsons, WV. But unless it is that blackfoot
of the seneca like i mentioned above, its almost impossible for her to have
been full blooded blackfoot. Her family had lived there for over 100 years.

Im Native American but tracing my tribe roots are next to impossible, i
know my mom and her side were all Indian, but i was told we were Blackfoot
Cherokee, which is invalid, because we are from and live in WV. I found out
about an ancient tribe called saponi, which were eastern Blackfoot that
became adopted by the Seneca, with other saponi relatives. There are few
websites and a sign here in WV that talk about the Blackfoot of the Seneca.
If anyone can help me track my roots, its appreciated:)
