Ted Rohde ©Stars and StripesFrankfurt, West Germany, October, 1972: Crow Indians from the Western United States ride the escalator at a Frankfurt store on their way to perform Native American songs and dances to promote tourism on reservations in Montana and Wyoming. The group of teachers, ranchers and machinists, led by Eastern Montana State College Indian Studies instructor (and World War II Air Force veteran) Philip Beaumont, had already toured England, Denmark and Germany in hopes of attracting between 800 and 1,000 Europeans to 14- and 21-day vacation packages in 1973.
