Description:
"Half-Breed" is a song recorded by Cher and released as a single in 1973. On October 6, 1973, it became Cher's second U.S. number one hit as a solo artist, similarly becoming her second solo single to hit the top spot in Canada on the same date.

Song information and story

The single was the first international release from Cher's album Half-Breed. The song tells the story of a young woman who is half white and half Cherokee. The song describes the troubles she faced, and the racism she experienced. White people often called her "Indian squaw" and the Native Americans never accepted her as one of their own, telling her that she was "white by law." Cher herself is part Cherokee.

In 1973, "Half-Breed" topped the United States Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks, becoming Cher's second number one hit and second Gold single. The song was a number one hit in Canada, a Top 10 hit in Sweden, and a Top 20 hit in Norway. In Germany and the United Kingdom, the song did not chart.
