Hi you two!
No, Rebecca, I didn't take any pictures, I know I should have, hehe. I wonder if there is any other race of people that is as much imitated by whites as American Indians. It seems that especially in places where there are not too many real Indians, there are fakes abound, even in Europe. Here in AZ, I would think that there are maybe not too many who call themselves by some fancy animal name to impress others because any Joe Normal next to you may turn around and turn out to be "real". And here, people go by looks, which of course may give rise to some prejudice and stereotypes too, but that's just how it is. Indians here tell me they can often tell what (Arizona) tribe someone is just by the way they look. I guess, just like I can often tell from what European country someone is even before I hear them talk. Is it the same in Canada, Rebecca?
