    deluxvivens:

    Because apparently this needed to be posted today. The first and last pictures are from IndiVisible: African-Native American Lives in the Americas. About the last picture:

    Here is a family from the Comanche Nation located in southwestern Oklahoma. The elder man in Comanche traditional clothing is Ta-Ten-e-quer. His wife, Ta-Tat-ty, also wears Comanche clothing. Their niece (center) is Wife-per, also known as Frances E. Wright. Her father was a Buffalo Soldier (an African American cavalryman) who deserted and married into the Comanches. Henry (center left) and Lorenzano (center right) are the sons of Frances, who married an African American man.

    bebe in top photo is also soo adorable.
