From Annie Get Your Gun...a good song for Liz Warren to use. Written by Irving Berlin. Use link above

Like a Seminole, Navajo, Kickapoo, like those Indians I'm an Indian too, a Sioux, a Sioux...

Some Indians someone say, without a sound I may hide away with Big Chief Hole in the Ground And I'll have Totem pole, tomahawk, pipes of peace Which will go to prove, I'm an Indian too

...Looking like a flour sack with two papooses on my back and three papooses on the way


TOPICS: Miscellaneous
KEYWORDS: ethelmerman; indian; lizwarren
Wikipedia: "I'm an Indian Too" is a song from the 1946 musical Annie Get Your Gun, by Irving Berlin. It was originally performed by Ethel Merman.

It is typical of mid 20th century views of Native Americans, and is sometimes considered racist and demeaning from a contemporary perspective, although others see it as a mildly satirical attack on racial stereoyping. Native Americans did protest outside the New York Theatre, as well as the film theaters, too, holding picket signs stating: "Don't See "Annie Get your Gun"". As a result of this reaction, many contemporary productions have omitted the song from their revivals, and the protests stopped.

In 1979, the song was remixed and released as a dance track by disco artist Don Armando.

Other singers to have recorded the song include Judy Garland.

It probably is rasist at the least, but what I want to hear is Elzbet doing her imitation of the ladies down at the 7-11 ~

That's the key. No sense being an Indian if you can't do the accent.

That’s right, take it from Biden (the 7/11 Indian accent comment)!

Meanwhile I’d like to point out that I was born in Lynn, MA,
which is part of the United States of America. Therefore, I am a Native American.

Country tune Indian Outlaw by Tim McGraw (son of baseball’s Tug McGraw) which actually includes part of Indian Reservation at one point.

They all gather round my teepee
Late at night tryin’ to catch a peek of me in my buffalo briefs
I got em standin’ in line
Cause I’m an Indian outlaw
Half Cherokee and Chocktaw
Cherokee people, cherokee tribe
So proud to live, so proud to die

I think of the spoof of the old song “The Streets of Laredo” done by the Kingston Trio, and further mangled herewith:


I see by your headdress that you are an Injun,
You see by my headdress that I am one too,
We see by our headdress that we are both Injuns,
.
.
.
Get yourself a headdress and be an Injun too!

Hey, maybe Liz Warren and Ward Churchill can shack up in a tipi somewhere and start their own Native American tribe.

I’m sure someone could come up with an appropriate name but it’s 0547 in the morning and my brain isn’t clever enough right now.

It's funny that you posted this article. I had just searched for the lyrics so that I could use them on the next Elizabeth Warren thread I came across here.

Betty Hutton did it best!!

Live by the hyphen die by the hyphen. Native-American? African-American, Hispanic-American, Asian-American blah, blah, everyone of the hyphen happy lessor-Americans completely missed the point of being an American and do not deserve the benefits this country use to offer. Thanks to progressives the opportunities and benefits are in a steep decline.

Being born here and living in the USA my entire live I am more of an American as any wannabe xyz-American.

Native Americans have many different lineages in them, there is asian/poynesian/african and even european genes at play.

To attribute one genetic trait with all Native Americans is like saying all people from Africa are “Black”. Africa actually has 6-7 distict racial phenotypes with about 1/2 of them being dark skinned, 1/4 of them being medium dark skinned and the rest being lighter shades of brown.

Idiot Elizabeth Warren couldn’t tell the difference between someone of San descent vs. Bantu.
