Snapshot: Creek cousin in the audience
Toward the end of the concert in the previous video from Mexico, be looking for this woman. She is a descendant of one of the Mexican tribes that are our cousins. They look very different from typical Mexican Mestizos, the Nahuatls (aka Aztecs) or Yucatec Mayas. She also could easily be one of my cousins in Florida or a Seminole lady. I saw indigenous peoples in three places that looked like someone from my mother’s family or the Hitchiti Seminoles . . . northeast of Villahermosa, Tabasco, where the Tamulte (Tamatli Creeks) live . . . in the Chiapas Highlands near the border with Guatemala . . . and in southwestern Vera Cruz where the Creek Migration Legend begins. One lady in Chiapas was almost identical to my grandmother. I took a picture of her. These tribes eat grits and hush puppies, plus celebrate a Green Corn Festival on the Summer Solstice. On right is a photo of me at age 17 before I got really ugly. You can see that this lady and I had the same facial features, except that she is pretty.
