The American Indian Heritage Foundation is now a nonprofit registered in Tennessee. One of Rita's step sons Michael Henry Rose is an officer.

The American Indian Heritage Foundation was founded in 1973 by Princess Pale Moon, of Cherokee/Ojibwa heritage. The foundation has a two fold mission, to serve needy American Indian families and children with emergency provisions and to sponsor cultural events, bringing Indian people together, as well as to educate the public about the culture and traditions of our people. The multifaceted programs of the Foundation work to help American Indians achieve greater personal fulfillment and deeper pride in their heritage.


An American Indian charity, preparing to launch a nationwide fund-raising campaign that asks people to give land "back to the Indians," has a half-million dollars in debts and a history of being barred from soliciting contributions.

The TV ads feature Pale Moon, who sang the national anthem at two Republican conventions, and Iron Eyes Cody, the actor famous for shedding tears over pollution in "Keep America Beautiful" ads.

"Our question is how does a bunch of toys help ... in feeding them (the Indians) and getting them clothes, which is their representation," Wright said.

There are also questions about the Indian heritage of Pale Moon, who says she is Cherokee and Ojibwe. Bureau of Indian Affairs records show she is not a member of the Cherokee, according to Evelyn Pickett, a BIA spokeswoman.

Rose, who claims no Indian heritage himself, said Pale Moon is an Indian, but is not enrolled in either tribe because she only became aware of her heritage in her 20s.

Johnny's richest quality was the love he had for his family and his desire for peace and togetherness. His legacy to his children is the depth of his love, compassion, sensitivity wrapped up with music and laughter. By far his greatest was his example in teaching them to know and love the Lord.

More clips from the 1970s when her married surname was Thielmann and she continued doing Billy Graham crusades. Includes her quote about performing in blackface when she was a teen.

She says that she didn't want be "be an Indian" until Jesus "created a sunburst in this little rosebud and caused me to open my petals".

I've uploaded here several newspaper clips from the 1950s on Rita Sentz. She and her siblings were performers and often covered in local news.

Thread on Robert Roses' step mother

In a 1977 article he is listed as the son of Wil Rose from a prior marriage. He was 12 years old when his father married Rita Sentz "Princess Pale Moon".
