Thanks for joining me today. A friend, Marilyn Wigglesworth, recently sent me some pictures of a Native actor and model, Jay Tavare. I hadn’t seen him (I don’t watch TV and seldom go to movies) and hadn’t heard of him, but seeing his pictures reminded me of just how beautiful (both body and spirit) some men can be. You can visit and friend Jay on his facebook site, also.
Here’s one picture that I really liked. Don’t know why, but sometimes it seems that we so seldomly see the men smile. So I was really taken with this one. Of course the pony in the picture really adds to it, also. I don’t know what tribe Jay is, but it seems as if he could represent most any of the tribes. Here’s another one:
This picture — off to the right — I particularly like. I guess mostly because the flute was used so often in Lakota and Cheyenne societies. It was the manner in which the young man would woe the girl of his choice — and she would know the song he played. In my very first book, LAKOTA SURRENDER, I made reference to this custom, which I still love to this day.
This shot I really liked because it looks so much like these men used to look so many years ago. This, to me, is your typical historical figure. Proud, handsome, willing to give his life for his people and for those he loved. By the way, I copied these particular pictures from Jay’s Facebook page, where there are many, many more pictures of him. But this is a sampling.
And then we come to Adam Beach — who in my opinion is probably one of the most handsome of men in the world today. I particularly like this photo of him — if only because it reminds me of the historical figures that I research in my writing. If you come to P & P very often, you might have seen this photo a time or two on my posts.
Another beautiful picture showing Adam and I’m not certain of the woman. Beautiful, beautiful picture — seeming to transmit beauty much more than sexual tension. Or perhaps true love. Again another favorite.
This image to the left is quite impressive in my opinion.
Off to the right here is another image of Michael. He has quite an impressive resume of films that he’s been in, another among the many is the movie Dream Keepers, another one of my favorite movies. In that particular story, Michael played the part of one of the Thunder Gods.
His dress looks very Lakota in this particular picture. And of course the Lakota are a tribe I admire very much.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this look into the handsome, handsome men of Native America. What’s your opinion? Do you have a favorite actor?
Bear with me today if you please. I have a busy day ahead of me, but I will come onto the blog every opportunity that I have. And of course I’ll be giving away a free book to one of the bloggers today. So stay tuned, come on in and leave a post and I will get back to you (although it might not be until tonight.)
