Indian Village, July 1964

Here's a nice view from the top deck of the Mark Twain, looking down on the old, long-gone Indian Village. Notice the queue area in the lower right for the Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes (one kid in the line has his mouse ears on)! I don't recall seeing so many totem poles and other artifacts from the Northwest territories. It looks like some teepees and maybe a "long house" have been replaced.

At some point these shaded bleachers were added, presumably due to large and enthusiastic crowds. There certainly are a lot of people in this photo! Notice all of the younger kids right down front, ready to hop into the circle and bust a move.

Surprisingly Northwesty feel!

pity the lady in the pinkish dress at the lower right of the 2nd pic didn't put a matching earring on her left lobe, the imbalance is really wearing on her.

anyway there's all ages watching together... truly a family park.

But! What's that looming behind everything? A b-b-b-bburial s-sep-sepcul-secul... thingy? Or a fitting roost for hawks? :)
