Disco Fever (PNSFW)

Cher in 1973
(not touching the debate on Cher's "self-identified Cherokee" ancestry)
In the seventies, it was cool to be an "Indian", unless, of course, you happened to be an Indian.

I happen to know some Apaches.  I can say with some certainty, there's nothing Apache here!  Check out the shiny, blue fringe on Mr. "Butter Popcorn".

No Apaches here, either!
Did you catch the play tent?

This could be the Hipster Pretendian Theme-song:
Perhaps Ke$ha will cover it next!
Don't you just  love the Album art? Thankfully, we're spared the video with this one. 

Of course, that is a re-make of this song:
I know it's from 1968 and not disco, but it's just too awful not to include.

What's a disco post without The Village People?
Felipe Rose honors his heritage by dancing in a loincloth, again.

Oh, but we've come so far since the Seventies, right?

This is a Norwegian band called Wig Wam. I'm just as confused as you are. 
Look them up on You tube if you're bored or really hate yourself.
(btw- that guy's shirt says "I Chief; You Nothing!" or something to that effect, I found it odd.)


  1. Maybe if "Apache"'s lyrics didn't sound like something Captain Caveman would say. My favorite lyric: "I'm the one who shot Jesse James". I'm pretty sure Robert Ford was white.

    Sugarhill Gang was just a way to present hip hop to white kids. Who loved every lyric.

    Poor Felipe Rose. He doesn't know how to honor his heritage without dancing in a loincloth for white men. (And yes, I am aware that gay/lesbian art tends to have more sexual themes, but still...This is no "Men, use a condom or beat it".) But, upon seeing Mapplethorpe's Man in Polyester Suit, I know it's an objectification of black men. I could deconstruct it as anti-art, commenting that white men only see black men as supposedly huge genitalia, but...I'd just be fooling myself.

  2. Of course, I can't talk about the 70s without mentioning Hanta Yo, the ultimate non-native "native-inspired" art. Inspired more by Ayn Rand than anybody, it simply takes Randroid values and puts them in a Sioux setting, and attaches a mix of Sioux ceremonies and things Hill just made up. And lots and lots of sex. (Seventies, remember?)

    White people being what they are (no offense), it was compared to Roots.

  3. "I'm an Indian Too" goes back a ways--it's from Annie Get Your Gun.

    The Judy garland version is worse, but I can't find it online at the moment.
