    Here is the link for this man. He seems to have been homeless.

    An article from when the designs were released. It appears the man and woman were not found together, just at about the same time.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    That bird tattoo looks Inuit to me. Not sure what tribe.

    It's clearly native, not a cartoon. I was thinking Pacific coast?

    I see Woodland Art with the bird tattoo.

    I was thinking maybe he was Canadian because of the Woodland Art idea for the bird tattoo, but after looking at images online, the stars confuse me. In the examples that I saw, stars were represented in the shape of circles. But now I'm just all confused. I wish we could see the actual tattoo.

    The arching squared-off body with what could be little feet sticking out of the bottom looks more like Kokopelli than like a bird. But I've never seen a Kokopelli with a bird head.

    I could be wrong but it seems that this gentleman was from the north. Only a northerner would go to Detroit to be homeless. I am not making a joke. A person from the south would not be ready for a Detroit winter out in the elements. Just my opinion.
