Indians

I think that one of my favorite things as a kid was right after a powwow my ma and I decided to go with her then fiance to an ice cream shop with some of our regalia and leathers still on. Out of nowhere a little girl comes out, points and yells:

“LOOK MOMMY! INDIANS!”

My ma without missing a beat turned around, pointed at her and screamed, “LOOK JEFF! A WHITE GIRL!”

And I think about that moment a lot.

North, Central & South American Natives all in one picture, talk about historic….. not to mention the individuals in the photo.

Amazon rainforest was giant garden city
The "pristine" Amazon rainforest was covered by a vast sprawl of interconnected villages between 1,500 and 500 years ago, according to a study that shows how nature has felt the impact of man for much longer than realised. By Roger Highfield

“ The findings are important because they contradict long-held stereotypes about early Western versus early New World settlements that rest on the idea that “if you find it in Europe, it’s a city.  If you find it somewhere else, it has to be something else,” Prof Heckenberger said. “They have quite remarkable planning.” Because it means at least one area of “pristine” Amazon has a long history of human activity, the find could change not only how scientists assess the flora and fauna, but also how conservationists preserve the remains of forest so heavily cleared it is the world’s largest soybean producing area. “

another proof of indigenous genius, if you still needed any.
