I was born in Brunswick, Georgia in I think about moving back there all the time, but I must wait upon the green light from Father, Son, Holy Spirit, as this is will not be by my will, my strength, my might, nor my power, but by word and truth of the Trinity. Should it be by the word of God, I shall reside on Sapalo Island, a place of peace and blessed humility.

I, like our yourself was always told of their Geechee heritage. My father would tell me stories of his father that passed when he was 4 but always remembered his different dialect of speech.

It was just the way that we spoke. Even myself.. But for us, it was natural, normal. My Grandmother used to make quilts, make lye soap.. All that are part of the Gullah tradition, and passed down to her. I am proud to be a part of such history, and look forward to working to preserve our culture, and history.
If you are of African descent living in this country, it should be your mission to make down to South Carolina at least once in your life! We are probably the only remaining remnant of our ancestors that came over on during slavery, and formed their own culture, language, while holding on to their African roots.
There are organizations here hard at work to educate and preserve, but we need help and awareness. There is so much in my heart to say. My family just lost one of our last living elders, my grandmother. She told me stories of my great grandfather Henry who was full blooded Cherokee Indian and how he married my great Grandmother Pearl who was full blooded GeeChee.
One being so well known and the other being tossed aside so carelessly. We were always told that we are most emphatically not African. But my heart knew differently. I wanted to know what Geechee was and why it was so important. I wanted to know what the culture was and finally know who and what we really are.
