Kiss From Above
Kiss From Above
In 1492 the Arawak Tribe greeted the first foreigners to their land in what is now the Bahamas. They brought gifts and gave freely. The foreigners were surprised how loving they were to one another. So taken by what they saw that it was noted as the first entry in the journals. “they willingly traded everything they owned and did not bear arms and did not know them”
“ Arawaks of the Bahama Islands were much like Indians on the mainland, who were remarkable (European observers were to say again and again) for their hospitality, their belief in sharing.”
These traits did not stand out in the Europe of the Renaissance, dominated as it was by the religion of popes, the government of kings, the frenzy for money that marked Western civilization.
This was made to remind us of where we came from. To remind us who we are. When natives say “decolonize” we are not saying that other cultures are bad. It’s said to remember our roots our heritage and our love!
