  1. I just googled Ojibwa, I don’t know a lot about the indigenous people of the Americas. Thanks for reblogging my post, it’s nice to share the love.

    1. these children are from an island in the Philippines. There is no electricity on the island. Every time I visit these children are building something in the sand and decorating it with flowers shells and palm leaves/seeds or laughing enthusiastically while jumping from fishing boats into the water. simplicity.

      1. I love the simplicity. I agree! I thought they were. My husband served a mission there, and I have many Filipino friends. I would love to visit there someday.
