children and racism

The little girl rolled forward on wobbly legs trying not to loose balance before

getting on the rink floor. Once she had her speed up, she knew that she

would be less likely to fall. He older brother raced past and the rush of air

nearly toppled her. Her brother had grace and coordination while she was the

"clumsy" one. "Little miss klutz," as she was playfully known as, had sprained

her ankle 8 times in the first grade. Now, in the 4th grade, she wasn't any

The census is coming!!! What identity will you check off and why???

Lots of opinions of identity have surfaced in different posts about identity, and why you identify yourself as such, often with heated debates and controversy. This is posted to bring up, not a case for controversy, nor adversity, but for healthy discussion. Let's listen and respect ALL opinions and posts. I'd love to hear from ALL!!!

Connections

I've been away for a time and the time has been spent researching and making new discoveries.



New people have been added to my family tree and some old dead ends found their new life within the "new" connections that have been made.



The family connections weave in and out of one another and sometimes go round about the world only to return to thier home in the end.



Our ancestors were all restless people moving to and fro about their world making new discoveries… Continue

"A SPIRITS WORDS" (A poem I wrote about a friends love for his wife)

LOOKING OUT OF MY WINDOW

ON A COLD AND LONELY NIGHT,

I CAN SEE THE SHADOWS DANCING FROM BUILDING TO BUILDING AS THEY PASS BY THE LIGHTS.

"INSPIRATION" and another painting

WHEN I WENT TO PUERTO RICO WITH MY GODMOTHER "TANAMA" (DEBBIE TORRENS), SHE TOOK ME TO SEE A WOMAN BY THE NAME OF "NANIKI". SHE HAS A WONDERFUL PLACE WHERE WE LEARNED ABOUT THE HERBS AND ABOUT OUR TAINO ANCESTORS. EVERYWHERE WE WALKED YOU COULD FEEL THE PRESENCE OF MOTHER EARTH AND THOSE WHO WALKED THAT TIERRA BEFORE US, IT WAS VERY SPIRITUAL. THIS WONDERFUL WOMAN SHOWED ME MANY SECRETS OF THE LAND AND MADE ME LAUGH OFTEN. NANIKI IS ALWAYS FIGHTING FOR THE PEOPLE FOR ONE REASON OR ANOTHER. I… Continue

Interpretation of a Taino Myth - Deminan Inaru Karey (Deminan and Turtle Woman)

Awhile back I did some interpretations of myths that I had read in the writings of Ramon Pané. Here is my interpretation of the myth of Deminan and Turtle Woman.





As soon as they came to the door of Bayamanaco, the old man and saw that he carried cazabe (bread made from cassava flour), they said “Ahiacabo guarocoel!” which means, “We know our grandfather!” In the same way, Deminan Caracaracol, seeing his brothers ahead of him, entered… Continue
