Bruce Williams and Terry Ree, often billed as "The Indian and the White Guy", are a pair of American comedians. Since the late 1960s, they have performed throughout the United States.

Williams and Ree first met in 1968 at Black Hills State University in Spearfish, South Dakota, as members of a band who filled time between songs with comedy sketches. Their humor soon became more popular than their music. Much of the duo's banter plays upon the stereotypes held of Native-Americans.

Williams and Ree have performed with the likes of Garth Brooks, The Oak Ridge Boys and Tim McGraw, and have made many television appearances on The Nashville Network. Their comedy albums include "The Best of Williams and Ree", "Taking Reservations" and "Way Up Norsk". They also made two independent films in South Dakota, "Williams and Ree, The Movie" and "Totem Ree-Call".

Williams and Ree currently perform throughout the United States and Canada at Indian casinos and fairs. They are the regular hosts of the Craven Country Jamboree in Craven, Saskatchewan and Country Thunder festivals in Wisconsin and Arizona. They are also regulars at the Norsk Hostfest in Minot, ND.
