Three Eagle



We have not had a Native American week in a long time, so we will have one starting today. This time, I would like to focus on portraits of faces. I love studying the character and detail in these faces. The picture today is from 1910, and shows a Nez Perce named Three Eagles. This is really a lovely picture.

    1. Sorry to burst your bubble Kenny, but it wasn't me that was sleeping in. I have been up since before 4:00 AM.
      It was PJM that slept in. I don't sit at my desk all day, got things to do and places to be. After I got all my things done at the computer in the mornig, I just check it every now and then to catch the stragglers.

  3. Interesting photo, he has a nice strong jaw line. His nose is not pierced.

    1. Nez Perce (Ney Per-say) is the name given to this tribe by the French. Some of the men did pierce their noses to hold bone ornaments.

      My husband is half Cherokee, and that nation (can't speak for others) does not use the term Native American, since anyone born in this country is a "native" American, including me and thee. If you know the nation or tribe, call them that; if not, Indian is just fine. Actually, the Canadian term "First Nations" is really the most appropriate.

  4. Just to let you know that I am up and checking out OPOD for Sunday morning.
    But PJM works hard and is entitled to his rest. I'll bet he has a million things to catch up on. Well maybe only 1/2 a million.
