American Faces

I have such an interesting Pinterest feed, at least to me. I get these amazing historical images. What fascinates me is that the Native American photographs dating back to the 1800's are faces far from displaced or destroyed. With American jargon as it is, one would just say, "Hey, those look like some Mexicans." I wish, I wish, I wish I could hear stories of DNA analyses giving some in the Latino community their Native American lineage. Then with that information, meeting their family already living here. With all the moving around and mixing up there is still a definitive American face that was reclassified as south of the border or extinct. Nope. Pictures don't lie. She looks Mexican American to me.
