Mother Yahgan

... travelling with ghosts.

In my friends place a book about evolution fell into my hand and part of it was a section about different tribes. The book is dated 1964. "Now there are only a dozen left" it says about the tribe back then. I don't think in 2012 a single one remains and still I have been thinking about Mother Yahgan and how the wave of her existence still continues with that thought.

Are they Native American tribes? Sandra, I need to see it - I'm doing my end-of-year millinery collection on them!

They are tribes from the Tierra del Fuego south America. The ghost men are fantastic!
