Back in the 1970s this wannabe guy named Jamake Highwater claimed to be Cherokee and Blackfoot. He was one of the first new-agey guru types, and wrote some BS books about Native art. He also had a TV show called "The Primal Mind" (don't that sound just sooooo new-agey?!). I'd bet that's where this particular combo of Cherokee/Blackfoot got popularized.... ex-hippies thinking their down with this pseudo indian just claimed the same tribes as him, probably as a kind of hippy-trippy solidarity..... after all, the flower power movement also tried to co-opt the word n!##er for any one who thought they were downtrodden or oppressed, so there were a bunch of white trust fund babies saying they were the N-word..... they must've all switched to being Cherokee/Blackfoot after getting ahold of Highwater's garbage.
