    Many of the photographs show a closely-cropped crown and “bangs”…

    I wonder if this was unique to the tribe, (our style), or if there was a practical reason?

    After all, these people were surviving in conditions that were beyond harsh, and judging from their garments, doing quite well!

    She’s a child. I doubt she’s trying to be provocative.
