My memory might be failing me (at the ripe old age of 24), but I seem to
remember the "How! How! How!" cheer being described as coming from B-P
himself, perhaps drawing on the Jungle Book. (Maybe this was the call of the
pack? - can anyone hear confirm/deny this).
I've seen a number of variations on it, including the "How! ... Ugh!" earlier
mentioned and "How! How! How! Y'all" to give things the southern feel. Other
variations were used depending upon what was being responded to.
I don't think that it ever was intended to refer to the stereotypic Indian
greeting, especially because of the variations made.
