This chapter examines the popularity of Indian subjects and songs in America during the period from 1900 to 1946. It suggests that the commercialization of native America during this period can be attributed to the influence of groups such as the Indian Rights Association, the territorial obsessions of the secretary of the interior, and the government sale of allotments to Indian families. This chapter also discusses the demand for Indian love songs, Indian music in theater and film, and Indian songs in concert settings.

Keywords:   Indian songs, America, commercialization, Indian Rights Association, territorial obsessions, Indian love songs, theater, film
