"It comes from a reel of outtakes from a Los Angeles TV station that was preparing a report on off-reservation Indians in Los Angeles. It was filmed at the pow wow of the Many Trails Indian Club of Los Angeles in 1973. For the same report the TV people filmed the Golden State Gourd Dance Society [and "How to Make Frybread"] footage which is found elsewhere on the AIFG. This latter group has a website; Many Trails seems to have dissolved some time ago." --J. Fred MacDonald
