Comanche Woman

I got this image from a documentary about the Indian Wars. This is a picture of a “Comanche Woman”. I completely fell in love with photo when I first seen it. I think it`s her expression that I liked the most. She looks like a real tough woman, like she could rip your head off if she wanted to, and proud at the same time. It`s almost like she has a spirit made of iron. Like most photographs of Indians from long ago, it was a stoic expression. I like the stoic expressions, although some natives don`t.”  – Riel Benn
