- Three Mcoma dance songs for women and girls, with 2 goblet drums, one weighted and whistles (-11.515-). "She wanted to go dancing, but she got into trouble and could not go." The girls stand in a circle and come out in pairs prancing a few steps in the centre of the circle. They retire and the next two come out until the whole circle has been completed. It was done very gracefully. A graceful circle dance performed by young girls, pairs of dancers coming out into the circle at a time.
