A song about Cherokees

A song I remember fondly from a 1960s childhood. It’s that familiar I even know the words. It rarely comes up these days, and may even be considered disrespectful for all I know.

In recent years I’ve attempted to look it up, but I’ve never known who it was by and wasn’t able to find it. Thank you to Sounds of the 60s for playing it a few months ago. I instantly recognised it as the song I’d been trying to track down. Key to finding it was identifying the band as the New Christy Minstrels.

The music is by Burt Bacharach, and the song dates from 1961
