, Princess Pale Moon of the American Indian Heritage Foundation in Falls Church.
Pale Moon, who says she is Cherokee and Ojibwe,
The five-foot Cherokee Indian who calls herself "America's Contemporary Pocahontas" had started in show business when she was 8, and spent more than 30 years on the road. Now three television networks would focus on her. Her fame had grown during the Bicententennial, when she was invited to be the Indian on the reviewing stand for ceremonies in 150 cities and towns across the country.
"I know that some Indians look at what I do and think I'm an Apple Indian: you know, red on the outside and white on the inside . . . I know that sometimes I'm the token Indian, but that's okay. I allow them to use me so I can get my message across."
Pale Moon's message is that "Indians are real people. We hurt just like you, and we enjoy succeeding just like you. We are not the savages of the forest you see in the movies."
Pale Moon tells this to groups of Americans "who have never seen an Indian except the kind killed by John Wayne." She tells them this early in her show, and then, in the time it takes a tear to reach a cheek, she trots out war bonnets and peace pipes, brings on the White Eagle Dancers--her sons John Mark Little Bear and Robbie Swift Arrow--and gives away rabbit pelts to teach the "Lesson of the Indian Giver."
She does all these things, she says, to help America's first minority. "I'm more of a communicator than an entertainer," Princess Pale Moon says, "so in time, people like Barbara Walters will get my meaning. The Indian people, my people . . . they need me."
