FORGOTTEN HISTORY: COME FROM AFAR

Photography by J.W. Hendricks

Creative Direction by Michael Tessler

Costume Design by Bandera Jones

Hundreds of years before Christopher Columbus set foot in the Americas, ancient runes and historic wedding rituals  indicate that the Vikings likely traveled to Mexico and the West Coast, meeting peacefully with the Seri tribe.  We explore the natives’ nonbinary cultural norms and beliefs, as well as why the meeting between Vikings and Mexican Natives occurred without conflict.
