These different phenotypes of the American Natives were created by Amud using a bunch of composite images from historical photos. They take into account all the variety of appearances that there are among the different regions of the USA.

  1. Funny since ALL the Natives Pictured before the 1900s all have SUPER DARK SKIN, the ITALIAN EXPLORERS drew them as Black AMERICANS

    • Would that not be included with the Eastern Forest Tribes? At on time, the Iroquois governed over large areas of the East Coast, including Michigan and farther north.

  2. I see the Iroquois/Cherokee faces and they remind me of my father, as I become older. Thanks to the artist who did all the research. Appreciated.

  3. I am looking for my greatgrandma owllooking and james blood my greatgrandpas information like my greatgrandma her maiden last name

    • ROSEMARY. The photos came when, in general terms, a great many First Nations had been removed, eliminated, or went to other tribes, to prevent their ancestral memories from vanishing. This gives a better defined view of our people.

      • I am in search of what tribe my grandmother belong to. I commented on your post not only was it the first one I saw but her last name was Stevens. Any information at all would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Monica Labeaud
