The notion in the US and Canada that one can't "really" be an Indian unless you're "authentic" - that is, you can't be an Indian if you live off the rez, wear socks, and don't have feathers in your hair.

I just wanted to add, that whatever the "truth" of the clip, the song is called Yeha Noha by Sacred Spirit.

Two points of interest from the video:
They were carrying stone tools which speaks of no contact but one of the men had two belts of cowrie shell money around his chest.That implies some contact with the coast. Remarkably they resemble the cowrie belt money made by the British in the early 19th century and also used by Chinese. A cowrie shell was worth about 1/7000 of an ounce of silver and are still considered a medium of exchange in PNG.
That might mean a contact perhaps generations ago for them by a native coming up from the coast.
