Tibetan or American Indian?

Tibetan Woman at Festival near Tagong

I met this woman at a month-long reading that a High Lama was giving in a little village outside Tagong. (In the winter, the readings can last up to 3 months!!!) Her look, her mood, her smile and her jewelry looked so American Indian to me. I keep saying to Thomas that I feel like I am in Arizona or New Mexico in the 1920s. There are many striking similarities between Tibet and the American Southwest – perhaps that is one of the reasons why I feel so incredibly at home here.

One response to “Tibetan or American Indian?”

    She would not have looked out of place in any of the pueblos in New Mexico. She looked so calm, confident and regal even. But are you sure she is a woman and not someone’s uncle?
