Yet again one man complains about one tableau showing a totem pole and 6 native Americans in traditional costume. Do native Americans not have totem poles and costumes to remember their history Because one man does not agree with the lights they may be removed

There's a totem pole in a front garden at Boars Head, near the petrol station, no sign of any Native Americans though

i enjoyed the video dougie. Being Devil's advocate I suppose the lights show a stero typical image of N American indians whereas different tribes had different costumes. I aslo noiced the "hoola" girls had coconut bras so maybe this should come down too. I imagine you could walk the length of the Golden mile and pick holes in all the displays. Maybe they shouldn't have lights at all! [light pollution, energy usage. where do you stop?

Two cowboys escaped from the Indians but found themselves lost in the desert.
After a couple of days they were starving, when one of the cowboys spotted a tree full of bacon in the distance.
They both ran towards the bacon tree shouting "a bacon tree, we're saved, we're saved"!
When they got to the tree, they fell to a hail of arrows from a nearby ridge and were killed.

You see, it wasn't a bacon tree at all. It was a ham bush!

The native Americans named their Sons from whatever they first saw when coming out of the wigwam they are born in, So if there is a flying eagle, the son is called , flying eagle, Or if there is a Buffalo running past, The son is called, Running Buffalo,
The Chiefs Eldest Son, Twodogsmating had a very unfortunate sighting as he came out of the Wigwam,
