My heart is for our Motherearth, society call the environment. We are the indigenous people of Jamaica and the local islands situated in the West Indies. I am passionate when my projects involve helping Motherearth, it gives me peace inside to encourage and educate communities about contributing back to Motherearth we call the Home of our next generations.
First I am a Child of Motherearth and second a proud Taino man, my heart concern is for Motherearth and her healing, may we pray and acknowledge our Motherearth with prayers and love from our hearts, every prayer for her heals her and gives her strength, it is a difficult time for Motherearth and she continues to endure the pain and suffering, and in this same breath she provides her children with food, shelter, water, breath and existence upon her earth where our roots dwell deep in her sacred body.
My Grandmother came from Nigeria during slavery and was refered to Scotland as a house slave due to her beauty, our Tribe in the forest of Nigeria was wiped out because our love for Motherearth was strong and we would not back down from the fight to live with our Mother, Motherearth.
All the men and young males of our tribe were completly wiped out whilst fighting the invaders of our homelands, the Grandmothers had to make the hard decisions and were aware about the importance of our blood and to continue as a people.
So my Grandmother named Crockshank sold herself on the free town to be a slave and was first shipped to Scotland were she adopted the name Crockshank, afterwards she was shipped to Jamaica and became a house maiden slave until she met with her next husband, his name was Freeman a Tiano Native man to Jamaica, we were privliged and honered our continuance with strong people that felt the same as our people.
We then grew as a family again and our new born first was my Great Grandmother Susan Freeman, afterwards was Grandmother Mary who passed on to me the traditions and stories of our bloodline, we populate what we call the Blue Mountains in Kingston and also in Montego Bay, the names we carry are Oldfield, Grey, Freeman, Morgan, and now we return back to the beggining of our indiginous ways that now run into the Lakota were we now attend with the spiritual family and the ceremonies that have being lost during the course of survival, thankyou Grandmothers and Grandfathers for your strength of hearts and we will always honor you each day in each step privilaged upon Motherearth.
