Native American Women

When I look at old photographs of Native Americans I am struck by their inner strength. That is true of both men and women. Considering that many of these photographs are more than 100 years old, I can’t help but think of the history and all their people went through. Look at their faces. When I see them I see people of incredible strength in spite of adversity, and with the women I see beauty and strength at the same time! I believe it has to do with their culture. Next time I will post the men.

I would also like to wish every one of you a blessed holiday season and — peace!

  1. I completely agree with you, the inner & outer beauty of the Native American women is breathtaking. I’ve always been very fascinated by the long (and sad) history of Native American culture. Wishing you a lovely weekend ahead!
    Best,
