A cute video of a little Indian girl who does not want to be referred to as Indian, and instead calls herself Zulu, has gone viral.

LITTLE INDIAN GIRL SAYS SHE’S ZULU

The four-year-old, whose name is Eva Grace Philips, is taking TikTok by storm with her adorable videos in which she speaks IsiZulu and even goes as far as identifying as a Zulu person.

In one of Eva’s viral videos which boasts more than 1.7 million views, she communicates with her mom in IsiZulu. Her IsiZulu is not bad for her age: She can greet, introduce herself and even mention that she’s about to leave for school.

“Guys, she doesn’t know race. She thinks you have to be from India to be Indian. She’s from KwaZulu-Natal so she’s Zulu,” the video was captioned on Tiktok.

In another video, little Eva tells her mom that not everyone in their household is Indian.

“Everybody is not Indian in this house,” she tells her mother.

And when mom asks “what are we?” she replies, “we are Zulus.”
