A place where indigenous people come together as one.
This is South American designs, most likely from Guatemala.
Here is the actual website http://backstrapweaving.wordpress.com/2011/02/18/backstrap-weaving-from-north-and-south-and-somewhere-in-between/
These are Mapuche designs.
This is the same disign in the black & white picture.
These designs are also in both pictures.
I tried to find and contact Hmong people in Argentina but I have no relative there. What I know is that in French Guiana, some Native Indigenous people indeed say that they have similarities with Hmong people.
The symbol in the gold & white picture, is the same symbol this girl is wearing in the middle of this picture. The symbol looks like the #3.
That’s nice to know that the Native Indigenous people in French Guiana also see the similarities.
Tou Vu Yang – That is interesting to hear that the Native indigenous peoples of French Guiana recognizes the similarities. I wonder if anyone from there has tried to find any connections between the two cultures?
Did you know that a delegation of Hmong people from Guiana was received by the French Senate last month? http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xxj8k2_presidence-une-delegation-hmong-accueillie-au-senat_news#.UVLVnxwQ33D
Wow, that’s pretty cool.
Note that the women are not all wearing traditional Hmong clothes / colours: one women seems to be wearing native clothes, some use the colours usually seen on cloths worn by the black people in Guiana.
That is amazing!!!
I noticed the same thing.
