An Apache girl. A little girl in a tattered dress. I saw this photograph and my heart just started to sink. Many people put Native Americans in this kind of spiritual, euphoric, wonder world, but in reality they have the same needs as all of us. Shelter, food and love. To live like a Native American in the 1800's would have been a hard life. In this modern world with TV, central heating, playstations etc, I don't think I'd last a week living like a Native American. Photo 1883.
