Many of us are used to seeing the Indian Dance Circle when it was north of where the Haunted Mansion is. But back in ye olden days, it was right next to the Jungle Cruise. Which seems weird.
In this first picture, you can see the tropical palms, and even the peak of the boathouse - just like you'd find in the American Southwest! Crowds are light on this gray day, but our dancer seems to be enjoying himself anyway. He's a trouper! I like the kids in their 50's outfits sitting on sawed-off logs. Comfy.
I hope that this drummer doesn't suffer the fate of the drummers in "This is Spinal Tap". But he does look kind of explodey.
Just think, you could probably climb up that berm, and on the other side you would find clockwork crocodiles and hippos.
Sometimes the life of a Disneyland Indian was lonely. No groupies, no squirrelly kids, not even a cranky old man. Nobody said showbiz was easy.
