I'm an Indian Today is a Little Golden Book, published in 1961. It is out of print. Author was Kathryn Hitte, illustrator was William Dugan.
One page after another, it is a perfect example of stereotyping and how a white child played/plays Indian.
Considering the publication year, it was something someone in my age group (50-60) would have been able to buy.
Maybe this guy, in this costume, read that book when he was a kid... This photo is from a costume site.

Here's some more of Richard Scarry's Indians. These images are from his Find Your ABC's, published in 1973. (Thanks, Heidi, for sending them.) I wrote about his work a few days ago on my primary blog. Click here to see that post. There's a few more images on this site, posted on March 7th, 2009.
