It feels a bit tragic seeing a tipi with a statue of an Indian before it and all in B&W as a past phenomena of forby times.
Yes, it is tragic the way American Indians have been treated.
Yes, it is tragic, but there doesn't seem to be any positive way to address the inequities. We need to become more vocal about it and make demands of our government, both local and federal.
Shown in black and white is very effective TFG.
I have always spelled that word teepee. Have I been doing it wrong all this time?In any case, this guy looks sad. I must say, I don't blame him.
It is one variant spelling. Tepee is also considered correct.
Tipi seems to be they way they prefer it these days... I enjoy the novels of Sherman Alexi, a Spokane-- he captures the life of these folks today.
The crouched (humbled?) pose of the Indian figure does create a sense of sadness in this scene.
What a cool carving.Visiting from BLACK AND WHITE WEEKEND. FRANKLY MY DEAR
I don't see this as tragic and I do like the looks of that teepee. It's also spelled tepee and tepe.
Lovely black and white shot.
