Indian Village Dancers 1960s
One of the most popular areas for photographers was the Indian Village located in Frontierland. I have seen several different series of photographs documenting the Native Americans performing their traditional dances to crowds of visitors. Here are a nice set of four photographs depicting one dance troupe. The crowd seems to be very appreciative of the dancing and appear to be totally involved. This is a part of Disneyland that has been lost. Now we have the cartoon version of Native Americans in the form of Pocahontas.
