Native Village

I definitely need to update my knowledge about native people. The other day I was told to draw a native village on a piece of paper. Here is the result:

I made a mix of Brazilian Indians and native American people. Despite the obvious simple sketch, you can see houses, a boat, a fire and a blue sky. The image represents the historical native people – I learned this when I was just a kid. So, we make assumptions and define stereotypes to comprehends the world around us. Although the natives cities modernize themselves and assimilate to western cities, in my mind they will always look like a place with harmony with nature.
