Qahatika-Girl by Dabull04 Qahatika-Girl by Dabull04
This is a picture of a young Native American Qahatika-Girl. Once a proud Nation of people who lost their land and pride because of greed.
My Ancestry goes back to either the Blackfoot or Crow Nation as far as we know, my family were doing research and hit a stumbling block so far down the line so we’re not really sure.
These people are well known for their spiritual beliefs and i think if some of these so called world leaders took a leaf out of their book things probably wouldn’t be so bad in the world these days.
Many movies were made to make these look like the bad guys and labelled them savages, surely the savages were the people that committed the crimes against them

Lovely--and thought-provoking. I've often wondered how this country would have been different if whites had embraced the First Nations peoples and their beliefs and philosophies, rather than trying to exterminate them...what a different place America might be today... **sigh** I love the face--very calm, collected--beautiful; her simple earring the only adornment, and even then not needed... Lovely texturing in the hair and robes. Just lovely! :clap:

Yeh we called hitler for what he did but many people were just as bad as him. Not only your country but the whole world could take a leaf out of these great peoples book, love the land and live off it instead of destroying it ;)

How profoundly true, my friend... **nodding vigorously** So, so true.

This is beautiful, David, both the drawing and the meaning behind it! :hug: Really excellent job on her hair especially! :clap:

I couldn't agree more with your text... they had every right to be there!
I once read the true story behind Pocahontas... those colonists did some terrible things there.. some of them actually ate people from the graves of Native American's :no: So who really were the savages, eh?
