what a disgusting song!
Still I guess it deserves recognition if only as a racist remnent.
It certainly is part of our historical response to Native Americans. Related to songs using bizarre "Negro" dialect, or those comic renditions supposedly from Yiddish tradition.
Please pardon me, but I just got done watching "Rabbit Proof Fence" and had been thinking of recommending it to my Lakota friend who had urged me to buy "Skins". And thinking of all the injustices we of European descent have heaped upon native peoples all over the world keeps me from responding postively to this song, no matter how innocently it may be in your experience.
