Indians and Goofy Mystery
Welcome to Disneyland's Indian Village. Leave it to Walt to find a use for set pieces from the movie, "Westward Ho The Wagons"! The guy was a genius. Over in Tomorrowland, the "20k Leagues Under the Sea" sets also provided a diversion for guests for many years while Walt attempted to build up the coffers so that he could afford to build something a little more mind-blowing.
Still, the Indian Village was a fun place for guests of all ages to stroll through. This Native American appears to be using different colored sands to create the symbols that you see in the photo:
Zooming in for a closer look at what he is doing, as well as to see his turquoise bracelet.
I love seeing photos of the Ceremonial Dance Circle; guests of all ages appear to be having a great time while learning about another culture.
All of today's photos are from the 1950's.
In other vintage Disneyland news, a Daveland reader recently sent me these images of a Goofy cel that he has from the Art Corner:
My mom and I recently discovered an old Disney Animation Cel of "Goofy" in some of my late Grandmother's photo albums. (photos attached) My Mom remembers they drove to Disneyland from Kentucky back in the late 50's and my Grandfather must have purchased it there at the Art Corner.
Anyone out there able to identify what movie/short this might have been from?
