Aww, thank you!<3
I actually heard something similiar about how Natives and the settlers mixed/adopted and this resulted in blonde natives. I'm from Finland (Nothern Europe) so this was new info for me! We do not go into American history that deeply, just cover the basics. So some people can still claim that heritage but not look like the typical image... Wow. Thank you for feeding my inner history nerd!
It seems my hunch about making Rain so light was right. She can be either adopted or mixed then.
These are BEAUTIUFL!! I love it so much! Lady is my favorite! This is exactly how I picture her human! Well done!
And another thing, you were not wrong to have Rain with white hair and blue eyes. A lot of people have the misconception that all Native Americans back then had dark hair and brown eyes, but when some explorers got there, there were some Native Americans who were born blonde hair and blue eyed because of marriages between Europeans before other explorers got there. So you got it spot on!
Awww, thank you! Lady is actually based on a long image of mine; I always imagined her human version to look like that. Even as a little girl.
Wow, really? What a knowledge flash! O.O
The same mixing happened with the indigenous people, Saami, in my country and nowadays most of them look white, even blonde, because of intermarrying with other people. So Natives had it like that too... I never knew! I'm so happy now, I have earned new history knowledge! Then Rain can be a mix. Both from Europe and America, like horses.
Really? Your family is? That is so awesome! It makes you the first person with Native roots I've spoken to! At least that I know. Since America is so far away that is only natural but still, I'm so happy now.
Your parents must be awesome. I love, love, LOVE history!!<33 What kind of clothes do you wear for festivals? Which tribe is your father's family from or do they know?
Actually, there has been so much Saami intermarrying that most of them look completely white nowadays. ^^
