There’s a scene in the 1950 musical Annie Get Your Gun in which star Betty Hutton, dolled up in a beaded turquoise tunic with splays of fringe flying around, professes her rapport for the Sioux. Though not exactly P.C., Hutton looks plenty engaging as she dances and sings, “I’ll have totem poles, tomahawk, small papoose.…I’m an Indian, too!”—supported by a chorus done up in Cher-tastic headdresses. Of course, Hutton, who plays sharpshooter Annie Oakley, spends the greater part of the film in cowgirl gear—which makes her as good a mascot as any for two spring trends: cowboys and Indians.
