T-Gives 2011 November 24, 2011 Happy Thanksgiving! Or, happy Thursday if you don't celebrate American federal holidays.

Often, when I draw kids, I'll give them the picture if they ask for it. Usually I'm just drawing them because everyone is quietly working and I want to be drawing too. THIS time, however, I was drawing this student because I really liked the juxtaposition of her hijab head scarf with her handmade tagboard Native American headband. She was pretty sad I wouldn't let her have the drawing. Sorry, little girl.

I'm still not over the fact that post-Columbus, the word "Indian" has been used to mean "indigenous person." If you say someone is Indian, I am going to assume they are from INDIA. </rant>
