Mardi Gras Indians: The Times-Picayune covers 175 years of New Orleans history
~In June 2005, Allison “Tootie” Montana of the Yellow Pocahontas, one of the most revered big chiefs, was speaking at a special New Orleans City Council meeting to discuss a St. Joseph’s night incident between Indians and police. Montana, 82, was standing at the podium surrounded by other Indians, recounting run-ins with the police that went back years. “I want this to stop,” he said, and then suffered a fatal heart attack and fell to the floor.

“We are Indians, Indians, Indians of the nation; wild, wild creation.
We won’t bow down, down on the ground.”
