Review by Yvonne Yarber; The Oral History Review, Vol. 26, 1999
"Oyate Ta Olowan is an important contribution to oral history. It records music and stories of process and spirit. It provides pathways for others to find strength and guidance. Milt and Jamie Lee present the material with integrity and transport the audience to become visitors or participants rather than voyeurs. The programs remind us that Native American music is flourishing, and that to some people, it is as essential as breathing."

Milt and Jamie Lee,
are up to now.
