Wovoka is the fifth album by Native American band Redbone.

Track listing[edit]

LP[edit]

The track We Were All Wounded at Wounded Knee was dropped from the US/Canadian release (KE 32462) due to its controversial theme.[2] The track appeared on the European release (EPC 65500), and was moderately successful on the continent (see main Redbone entry).

The LP version of Come and Get Your Love starts with a slow rendition of the chorus. This intro was cut from the single release.
