American children present gifts to
Queen Homeira at the 1968 Jeshyn Fair.

Kabul, 1968

More than 50 American school children performed a “Cowboy and Indian” act to highlight American culture for 6,000 Afghans in Ghazi Stadium. The show lasted only 15 minutes, but that was long enough to win the heart of Her Majesty the Queen. The children presented her with a Native American headdress and a book about American Indians, both of which they had made.
