Representing many tribes, the Indian Village presents the culture, customs,

- Look inside the teepees to see how the Plains Indians lived.
- Meet the full-blooded Indian Chief.
- At the Ceremonial Dance Circle, watch
colorful performances of authentic dances (Summer, weekends, and holidays only).
- Buy authentic Native American crafts at the Indian Trading
- Grab an oar and climb aboard one of the Indian War Canoesthe ride where
you provide the propulsion.
The Indian Village in Disneyland opened in 1955 near Adventureland. In 1956, it
moved to the location that it would occupy until 1971.
With the closing of the Indian Village, the Indian War Canoes became Davy Crocketts Explorer
In 1972, a new land,
(now Critter Country), replaced the Indian Village.
The Indian Trading Post remained the Indian Trading Post until 1989, when
it became the Briar Patch due to its proximity to Splash Mountain.
