John D. Loudermilk's "Indian Reservation" dealt with the demise of the Cherokee tribe. Paul Revere & the Raiders had a #1 hit with this song in 1971.
B.T. Express - "Peace Pipe" (1975)
The Native American band Redbone were known for incorporating Native American rhythms and chants in their songs - "Maggie", "Witch Queen Of New Orleans", "Niki Hokey" (they wrote that for P.J. Proby) and the band's biggest hit "Come & Get Your Love".

There was a "Neki Hokey" done in 1956 or '57 by the Cleftones. Is it the same song as the one done by P.J. Proby? ...I'm not that familiar with Proby.
|By KevGo (184.108.40.206) on Friday, March 21, 2003 - 11:23 am:|
I'm not sure about the Cleftones version but singer P.J. Proby recorded "Niki Hokey" in 1967 for Imperial Records. It was written by Pat & Lolly Vegas, the two brothers who founded Redbone three years later.

Have you heard XIT's albums (on Rare Earth) ?
- almost exclusively Native American subjects
- they were a great band. Try to hear their
"Silent Warrior" album - there's some
absolutely ferocious protest songs there like
"Reservation of Education" and the title track
still gets to me after thirty years.

Electric Indian-Geronimo-United Artists.
And I think they also did one called 'Keem-o-sabee'.

I once had an artist called Blue Eagle (real name)
who was a full bloded Cherokee who did Minneapolis style souland funk as well as Native music(with a groove)
I could not get company interest because of their shortsightedness. He could have been a star today.

just noticed your piece above that mentions Keem-o-sabee.

|By Dick Gamble (220.127.116.11) on Saturday, March 22, 2003 - 10:09 pm:|
That was off her first album "It's My Way" around 1964.
An'my belly is craving,I got shaken in my head
I feel like I'm dyin.. an' I wish I were dead.
I liked it myself, but yet again I like all her songs...
