I just got the new issue of Wired and some guy is featured with his tattoos of Native headdresses on skulls- he finds the imagery appealing because it reads strong and proud to him, which i kindof like, except the skulls...well, we arent dead. And it kindof renders us invisible if the only people we see doing native stuff say that they are not. I am torn, because at least the ideas are still around. An idea is a legacy. But lets see who exists today!
I had an art show Friday and i wore a hawk feather in my hair, as a nod to regalia, which my mom always does at her art shows!
