Felipe Rose (born January 12, 1954) is a founding member of the disco group the Village People, in which he is the Native American. His mother is Puerto Rican and his father is Lakota Sioux. Rose (birth name: Felipe Ortiz Rose ) was born in New York City and raised in Brooklyn where he displayed an interest in the arts during his childhood.
