In 1948, Bing Crosby, then a first-rank international star, visited Vancouver – and ended up being invested as Squamish Chief Thunder Voice, among other civic performances. The Vancouver City Archives has the video (1.00 minute in).
By the way, what is up with coastal First Nations adopting feather war bonnets? Is this a kind of weird double reverse emulation: trying to look more stereotypically Chiefly in the eyes of the majority population? Is it intra-aboriginal cultural appropriation? Or do they just look freakin’ awesome? Note the tomahawk as well in the picture above. Someone should write a paper on “Plains Paraphernalia as Signifiers of Rank on the Historic Northwest Coast”. Or maybe they have, already. I’d read it.
