My Kickapoo is an early Harry von Tilzer contribution to the Red Indian craze and is an instrumental version of the song My Pretty Little Kick-Apoo, lyrics by Andrew Sterling, which was also published in the same year. A longish composition, it abounds with tom-tom clichés and evokes of the mental image Indian braves a-wielding tomahawks as they prance around the communal fire in the heart of a wigwam village. Whether they were about to go on the warpath or were indulging in harmless entertainment is left to the performers' interpretation.
My Kickapoo was published by Harry von Tilzer Music Pub. Co., New York, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
