Do these people own a map? Like..
Oh my god, this must be a sensitive topic with you guys?
I think the museums website is well aware that Mexico is not in South America. ITS A CATEGORY. like “ok this is where we put stuff from Mexico and South America”. that’s how I understand it and that’s why I didn’t chance it.
Even if it is a category, it doesn’t make sense. Mexico is a part of North America and should categorized as such. Grouping it with South America is like grouping Egypt with Asia; there may be similar cultures, but it doesn’t mean it should be in the same category.
Maybe it just looks more like the other combs from South America than like the others from North America. Maybe it’s nothing but a comb-thing :D
