    Re: Indian Names?

    I don't recall if the "Wooden Indians" (or "Cigar Store Indians") ever had names, but I do recall the ticket-seller mannequin at the Main Street Cinema used to have a name and even had a Disneyland name tag on her. Though last time I was there, she no longer had the name tag and I've forgotten what her name was. Anyone recall what it was?

    As just a matter of coincidence...just yesterday I came across this old 35mm Kodachrome slide that I shot of Main Street's Indian back in 1981:

    I know the majority of us used the generic name Chief... but I am not sure of an official name. I also remember the nametag on the ticket seller but I can't think what it is. As far as statues having official names... the Monkey statue on Jungle has always been known as Bob!
