Quote Kim LaFlamme:
A MUST SEE
Any one that can see this exhibit … it’s amazing to see First Peoples still living as they did thousands of years ago and that still have their old dogs. The Copper Canyon area is deeper & higher than the Grand Canyon; one of the reasons they are still there, as civilization hasn’t destroyed their culture….. yet. The Tarahumara are known for their ability to run barefooted for hundreds of miles and never tire.
Kitty Snead was kind enough to take a recent photo of a Tarahumara Indian girl holding one of their puppy’s. http://Dogs Of The Tarahumara Indians
These are the dogs I went through A Peyote ceremony to be presented a puppy back in the 60’s (when I could also run for days <g>) These bloodlines are within our bloodlines still today … hope to pack in with horses next time we visit.
