Indian Village Frontierland July 1955

The photographer then took the short hike to the original Indian Village on the banks of the Rivers of America and snapped a bunch of photos. I think my favorite is the first one with the Indian Dancers taking a break from the sun under the shade in the background. I also like the picture of the horses in the corral. Somehow the village was believable in the middle of Southern California.

I love this set of black and white photos (color is great, but it isn't everything!).

These days I wonder if the average Disneyland visitor would even want to watch Indian dancing, with attention spans being as short as they are.

The third image - with the horses -is not actually in that indian village (which was near the back side of the Jungle Cruise originally). Instead, it's a part of the Conastoga Wagon ride area. Hope that helps some.
