In the Dickinson area of North Dakota, especially New Hradec and New England, there are Bohemians. No, I don’t mean hippie girls that don’t shave their legs and don’t take baths, I mean real Bohemians, from Bohemia. Bohemia, or the Bohemian Empire, was located in Europe where Czechoslovakia is now shown on maps.
My room mate, who is almost sixty, grew up in New Hradec. He said that in elementary school, the Bohemian children were speaking Bohemian, which he could not understand, and the teachers didn’t like it and would try to get them to stop. But at home, all the Bohemians spoke Bohemian, it was only the children that knew any English quite often. This “Bohemian” may have been Czechoslovakian, I don’t know, I wasn’t there.
I won’t go into the details, but I met two beautiful young Bohemian girls from Dickinson and New England, who looked very much alike. They were both about 5′-5″, had dark black hair, pale flawless skin, not overly skinny, very beautiful. They were both determined to like me. One got married. One didn’t get married, and remained wild, so wild that she scares me. The one that didn’t get married, I like to look at her Facebook page to see her pictures, her self photographs turn out wonderful. She acts like a Dr Seuss character. She is somewhat proud that she is Bohemian. I wish that I could tell you her last name, it’s so unique.
If you look up this young beautiful Bohemian girl’s unique last name on the internet or Facebook, you will see that there are about twenty more very beautiful young Bohemian girls in the Dickinson area with this same last name. They are all either care-free or wild. I have talked to men in their sixties and they remember these Bohemian girls from when they were in high school, they all said that they were very beautiful and very wild. Remember, I am talking about the local families in the Dickinson area who are from Bohemia.
Now that I have clarified that I am talking about local girls whose families are from Bohemia, I now want to say that these girls sometimes act like Gypsies, dress like Gypsies, drink like Gypsies, pass out/pee anywhere like Gypsies, and travel like Gypsies. Nowhere in Dickinson have I ever seen or heard anyone make the correlation between people from Bohemia and Gypsies, perhaps because there is a derogatory connotation with the word Gypsy. However, there are local young girls here in Dickinson of Bohemian heritage that seem to have Gypsy tendencies in them.
To complicate things further, southwest of Dickinson, in the Badlands, are the Miller girls. If you go look up the “Millers” on the internet or Facebook in the Dickinson area or Badlands area, all the Miller girls are pretty. Codi Miller was Miss North Dakota Teen and Miss North Dakota Rodeo. Codi’s sister Kit is just as pretty. They dress like Gypsies, model Gypsy clothing, have a Gypsy clothing website “Dakota Gypsies”, travel like Gypsies, ride horses like Gypsies, and never complain about there not being a bathroom around. Not only do they wear Gypsy clothing, they wear Bohemian clothing! I don’t even think that they even know that they are wearing Bohemian clothing, I think that they do it just out of instinct, which leads me to believe that they might be Bohemian too.
