Indian Village | Disneyland

Last Updated on: March 26th, 2024

The Indian Village was a former attraction at Disneyland in California. It operated from 1956 to 1971 and was located in Frontierland.

The Indian Village aimed to showcase Native American culture and provide guests with a glimpse into the traditional way of life of various Native American tribes. The attraction featured a collection of Native American dwellings, or tipis, which were authentic representations of different tribes.

Within the Indian Village, guests could explore the tipis, learn about Native American traditions, and interact with Native American artisans and performers. There were demonstrations of traditional crafts, such as pottery making and beadwork, as well as performances of traditional dances and music.

The Indian Village aimed to educate and celebrate Native American culture, offering a unique and immersive experience for guests to learn about the customs, traditions, and contributions of Native American tribes.

However, in 1971, the Indian Village was permanently closed and replaced by other attractions and experiences within Frontierland.
