Lakota girl, ca.1875

This isn’t a Lakota girl she’s a Filipina mestiza de sangley

Bah! way to erase the woman’s identity.

Check your sources, gdi. *glares*

And her portrait is one of the most famous old portraits and recognizable among many Pilipin@s. The photo, which is called Mujer de la clase rica, was indeed taken in 1875, but not of a Lakota girl but a Filipina/Chinese mestiza by Dutch photographer Francisco van Camp who was well known during the 19th century for his refined portraits in the Philippines.

The fact this post got so many notes with misinformation, poor research, and thus erasing her ethnic identity saddens me.

I looked this up and it’s a shame how many other Native American blogs and sites wrongly identify this photo. Appreciating WoC beauty but erasing her identity and origin is beyond careless.

Studies show that women apologize more than men, often for perfectly reasonable acts like, you know, taking up space. 

So watch this Pantene commercial here to inspire you to stop saying sorry for no reason.

This woman deserves a round of applause and a throne of gold. This is the most realistic & amazing thing for someone to say for this generation of students. I wasn’t able to go to college this year because my parents can’t afford to send me and I had every scholarship, grant, loan known to man and it still wouldn’t work. Finally someone gets it!

Preach!

WHAT DOES IT TAKE FOR PEOPLE TO REALIZE THIS?!

SO MANY OTHER COUNTRIES EITHER PAY FOR THEIR POPULATIONS’ EDUCATION OR JUST WRITE OFF THE BILL IF DOESN’T GET PAID FOR.

THE WAY THE AMERICAN EDUCATION SYSTEM WORKS IS BACKWARDS AND MANGLED.
