This song was designed to help children learn to count to 20 with fluency. The key to this call and response tune is that the vocalist sings the first sequence 1-4 and the children answer with the next sequence (5-8). Additionally, this song provides a platform to introduce Native American culture. 

The song was written & performed by  Roman Orona, a Native American drummer and member of the Apache Tribe. His father, Dr. Joel Orona, joins him playing the Native American flute.
