When I first heard this song play on the radio it meant something to me because I am part Indian. Although I was born with strawberry blond hair and blue eyes, my grandmother was born with black hair and dark brown eyes.
I remember learning about Indians and what happened to them and why they are now forced to live on reservations. The song Indian Reservation hits upon the suffering, in which the Indians had to endure, when the white man fought the Indians, for their land.
