I found another matchbook from the Islands that may shed a little light on the restaurant development. The first matchbook I posted was from when the restaurant just opened (the "New Fabulous Islands") had a rendering of the restaurant exterior with a different Tiki than the logo rootball Tiki that showed up later on the postcards and menus.

The new matchbook I found has a different rendering of the exterior that includes the rootball Tiki on the front and back.








The later matchbook includes new rooms called the Tiki Room, the Tapa Room and the Cannibal Room. I'm thinking they added the rootball Tikis later after the restaurant was first built.

I was poking around the internet and found these great interior photos of the restaurant from the Window Rock High School staff party dated 1964.





Check out those drinks.
