Indian Reservation

They took the whole Cherokee nation
Put us on this reservation
Took away our ways of life
The tomahawk and the bow and knife
Took away our native tongue
And taught their English to our young
And all the beads we made by hand
Are nowadays made in Japan
 
Cherokee people
Cherokee tribe
So proud to live
So proud to die
 
They took the whole Indian nation
Locked us on this reservation
Though I wear a shirt and tie
I'm still part redman deep inside
 
Cherokee people
Cherokee tribe
So proud to live
So proud to die
 
But maybe someday when they learn
Cherokee nation will return, will return
Will return, will return, will return

This song was never sung by Cher. She sang "Half Breed", a song with a similar theme, but quite different.
