Natalie native portrait copy

I chose to do these images as my native portrait because this Mayan pyramid is Chichen Itza which is one of my favorite pyramids from the Mayan civilization. With this photo I want to convey the message that I’m an urban indigenous youth with Mayan roots. Most people who are not knowledgable on indigenous people tend to have a stereotype for Mayans. Through this photo I want people to see that I am not just Mayan, but I’m also an urban indigenous youth who advocates for her community, Los Angeles.
