What Does A Native American Look Like?

Whenever someone asks me what a Native American looks like and I can tell they are trying to say Natives were only white or almost white I show them the picture ‘Bear’s Belly –Arikara, 1908. The Arikara were a group of Native Americans. They were members of the Caddo people who lived in what is now North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas. Today the Caddo are a cohesive tribe with their capital at Binger, Oklahoma.
