Day 20 - Nana, Grandad & her dog Terry outside 22 Britannia St. This is the house Nana spent most of her adult life in, the house where some of my fondest summer memories were made! Her parents were the previous owners. #nanalove #nana #grandad #1969 #style #fancy #stratford #pipe #dogsofinstagram #poodle #grandparents #family #love #knowyourroots

Imagine, even in the bush people does litter๐Ÿ˜ช. Regardless, Madewini is so far my most favorite part of Guyana. Ouara/Owara(??) fruits are in the second photo. Tasty but too much of a hassle to eat imo๐Ÿ˜ฉ The vid is me leaving my grandfather's land. I'll miss staying there -- the spiders can kiss my ๐Ÿ‘tho๐Ÿ’€ . . LOL, but does anyone recognize the wrapper on the ground? A real caribbean would know what snack it is๐Ÿค”#instachallenge

i am the wom my ancestors couldn't destroy couldn't imagine couldn't even dream of made of earth and resilience and the oppression of my grandmothers ๐ŸŒŽ I am a descendent of Joseph Merriam, born in Kent, England, who arrived on the shores of Charleston, Massachusetts aboard the ship "Castle" in 1638. He was admitted freeman in 1639 and died in 1640. This is as far as we can see on my patriarchal native side of the family, thanks to the deliberation and labor of my Mormon ancestors and my closest brother. With this information now known to me, my bad days and unfortunate circumstances seem a bit trivial... picture the dissonance of women's lives today to women in that era: treated as property and perpetually oppressed and silenced. But I try not to view things in terms of being good or bad : aawi - "it just is". My grandmothers would be terrified and proud of me. #knowyourroots #colonial #colonization #privilege #modernwoman #silentnomore #girlpower #feminism #ancestry #decolonize #knowledgeispower #resilient #indigenous #balance #indigenous #raybans #nature #educate #healing #trauma

#TheRealDeal Thatโ€™s the nickname you earn by becoming boxingโ€™s first 4-time heavyweight champion not to mention the cruiserweight belt as well. That nickname is real when youโ€™re @evander_holyfield and you beat guys like Tyson, Foreman & Holmes. Sleeveless hoody is back. Link in bio #RootsofFight #KnowYourRoots
