There were better quality videos of this song, but I liked this one from The Midnight Special, loved that show. I remember watching this very episode and being surprised the group was made up of Indians.

Ahhhhh. I had no idea but now the name of the group makes sense, I always thot it was an odd name lol. Not crazy about the song tho.   Oh Midnight Special was a great show. Wasnt't Wolfman Jack involved in that show?
I have a nostalgia question for you. Who/what was name of the dance couple Dick Clark would, for the lack of a better word, "showcase" ?

You know, I really never watched Bandstand all that much. Usually by the time it came on Sat. afternoons, we were in town visiting with grandparents and/or shopping. When I'd go to the pool hall w/ my pop, while he played Moon, I'd shoot pool by myself and drink a coke w/ peanuts in it, but sometimes the owner would turn on the TV and we'd watch Soul Train together.

Seems like one of them was Bunny? Beverly? Something like that? Of course, Bandstand ran for how many years? I expect the first ones on the earliest shows were old enough to be the grandparents of those on the last shows. I read an article a few yrs. back that claimed most of those kids were gay. Not sure where they came up with THAT, but..

All I really remember is "I'll give that one a 75, Dick. It's got a good beat and you can dance to it."

Oh and yes, Wolfman Jack was the announcer, maybe even hosted a few times, but I believe they had several hosts throughout its run. Helen Reddy was one, but don't think for all that long. Some comics were on, too, one of the first times I ever saw Richard Pryor.

It WAS good, huh sully?

I remember learning a few Indian dances in Cub Scouts and performing them in front of our Dads at a picnic, dancing around a huge campfire.

Ok you are excused! It was "Famous and June". Spotlight, that is what they called it! The dance spotlight! It just popped into my head lol. They were a cute black couple that could dance, especially if you compared them to the others lol. I was unaware Richard Pryor was on, I so loved Richard Pryor, even as rank as he could get, he was just too funny.
And I remember when my brother played baseball, the team was called the "Indians" when using that name wasnt offensive. After the game, the baseball team rode on the float in the parade and Indians wearing the headdress walking alongside the float. It was fun and innocent back then.

Song made a huge showing on Guardians of the Galaxy, BTW that is real live music no lip/finger/body syncing in the 70's......

Yes, on Midnight Special, but I think most every group that appeared on Bandstand lip-synced their songs. Most songs fade out and it always was funny to see how the group handled that.

Thanks to everyone for posting, this post is about to slide off the "front page".

I was torn between using Cher's "Half Breed", which I always thought was about a gypsy, but she's dressed in full Indian (and fake) regalia OR Paul Revere and the Raiders "Indian Reservation", quite the social commentary at the time about horrible conditions on reservations.
