Peter La Farge

Peter La Farge (1931-1965) was an American Indian singer/songwriter.

"Long before Hollywood dramatized the plight of Native Americans, Peter La Farge was writing about his peoples' experiences, from songs about Tecumseh and the Trail of Tears to a rhyme about the atom bomb: 'Take back the megaton / Give us back our lances / We will make our own wars / And we will dance our dances.'"
