I was trying to avoid racebending characters who are already PoC, but I couldn't think of any other but Pocahontas for this one
Also, Brazil gotta be one of the most racial and ethnic diverse countries in the world, it was kind of hard to me to figure what people mean when requesting me this… Then the answer was so obvious I felt stupid
Why not a south-america native as well? I can’t remember seen brazilian Indians represented anywhere out of here. For this piece I tried to specifically base her on the tribes of the Amazon rain forest
Just for curiosity, a brazilian author of the XIX century, José de Alencar, wrote a fiction called “Iracema” , which has a very similar story of Pocahontas. A beautiful native, who name the book, fells in love for a Portuguese explorer during the earliest decades of the colonization, the end is tragic but… The more you know…
I did not see a reason not to try it *-*
too much wedding dress?
