    Default Latvian People

    3 rules if anybody will ever wish to contribute some photos to this thread:



    1. Only group photos or other statistically relevant samples like ALL Latvians from some sport team (to avoid cherry-picking).
    2. People in the photos have to be Latvians (so, no random shots from regions with large ethnic minorities, please).
    3. Post sources (if it's a band - the name of the band, if it's a crowd shot during some event - what's the name, date & location of that event, etc).




    Uptight they may be but this is only to prevent trolling like this [1], [2], [3], etc. from ever appearing on in this thread. Hweinlant also complained that in the previous thread there was "an advertising campaign rather than the show of real diversity of Latvian nation" so, sticking only to group shots & statistically relevant samples here will take away his excuse for spamming photos of Russians here.



    I'll start with folk bands and I'll just post the name of each band for a source:

    Troksnu Iela


    Ilza


    Vilkaci


    Mara


    Marupiesi


    Saviesi


    RĀMUPE
    Ķekavas novada Katlakalna folkloras kopa






    Youth Folk Group "Upite" (Latgale)





    Now some shots from folk festival (dziesmu svetki) which were posted by Latvians themselves back at the Apricity:















    This might serve as a good reference for the pigmentation (hair):

    nice, sweetiepie.

    Individual shots should also be posted, if only a certain person stays away from trolling.

    Individual shots from statistically relevant samples like "all Latvian sportsmen from some team" or "all Latvian members of city council", or "all Latvians from some theatre group", or whatever are most welcome here, as I mentioned in the OP.

    The trolling fest "Latvians are the troooo mongs" or "Latvian [Russians] look so - surprise, surprise - so very Russian!" can carry on in the previous thread.

    Let's keep this one clean (this remark is meant for Hweinlant & Lemmy), thank you!

    Marketing material?? WTF????? Do let me know what am I marketing here cause I haven't got a slightest clue myself.

    Did I supposedly cherry-pick the most Nordic/Baltic/Russian or whatever Latvians here? Which looks did I cherry-pick?
    These are all group shots from people involved in folk music (=as Latvian as one can possibly get). Why don't you zoom in - large photos, heaps of faces.
    I think it's a wonderful reference to get a picture of what actual Latvians look like - unlike the Russians, Ashkenazis and what-not whom you & Lemmy spammed onto the previous thread.

    ---------- Post Merged at 01:42 ----------

    Carrying on then. I took these sets (compiled by Eriks) from the previous thread:

    General conductors of Folk Songs and Dance Festival



    National Men's Basketball Team


    National Women's Basketball Team



    Members of Europarliament


    Riga's City Council




    Minister Cabinet



    Latvian Parliament

    I'm pleased to hear you're amused. You still didn't tell me what am I supposedly marketing here, could you do that now, please? Pretty please? I'm dying to know, really.
