INDIANS…THE ATTRACTION MOST TOURISTS PREFER
Happy NATIVE AMERICANS’ DAY (if you live in South Dakota) or INDIGENOUS PEOPLE’S DAY (if you live in Berkeley, California).
If you want a COLUMBUS DAY bad postcard, look at LAST YEAR’S post.
All young vacationers, traveling the “West” expect to see Indians. The Mesquakie Indians own their “settlement” near Tama, Iowa and hold their annual Pow Wows during August.
Chief Whitecalf and his Sioux Indians perform authentic war, snake and buffalo dances daily at North Platte, Nebraska.
