So what do you do when there is no more hunting? How do you provide for your family? These are just some of the issues faced by the Native American men, of the past. When I see these photographs though, I see amazing inner strength! These men teach me and inspire me. They tell me that no matter what issue I am facing, nothing can change who I am! Internally I am to keep fighting! What ever you may face – never give up.

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!
