Duku, Doek, Inchafu o Turbante más que moda o un complemento es un símbolo de identidad cultural afro ✊🏾 la tela que lleva mi bandana es una wax print que se remonta se remonta en el tiempo al siglo XIX. Los holandeses reclutaron soldados de África occidental para reforzar su ejército en Indonesia. En aquella zona, se producían tejidos mediante la aplicación de la cera en un paño para crear un patrón. Los soldados africanos del ejercito holandés quedaron maravillados por la belleza y el colorido de estas telas, llevándose la artesanía y la técnica a su país de origen.
PD: sorry, es que no me pude decidir por una sola foto! 🤷🏾♀️

“Our spirits don’t speak English”
I’m pretty sure this person was not suffering like he is now, before stubborn people tried to “erase” his identity. He embraced himself, his identity, his culture, and enjoyed doing it.
This is a sad reality in our society. This has to stop somehow, someday. I refuse the idea of giving up hope of this situation ending. We, all have so much work to do. What about starting giving RESPECT to everybody without exceptions?! What about OPENING OUR MINDS to the reality that there is more than we call “western culture world views (white)”. This is a very beautiful multicultural world!
Last week, in class, while talking about hate crimes, race and gender micro aggressions, a classmate told me in a very sarcastic way: “ you left your country to learn how to speak another language that is not your native one, you are studying in a College stablished by white people, what are you talking about? “... Yes, I left my country for undetermined time to get knowledge, but I still appreciating equally or more my precious culture and share to others how different we are from negative stereotypes and stupid labels “someone” put on us. Yes, I learned and still improving another language that is not my native language, but I’m more committed to get prepare to try to reach more people and mines that are suffering. I never left to completely leave. It’s been tough, believe me. Please, let’s try.
This is DeviyaSthan
Claim a Sthan for Yourself..! Rajasthan -The very name conjures up contrasting images of glistening golden desert dunes, parched landscapes, arid climate and then again, rich culture and cuisine, vibrant arts and crafts, eventful historic episodes, chivalrous and highly cultured people. Probably the constant war with the inimical natural elements has imparted a passion to the natives who live every day of their life to the fullest.
Devoutly religious and friendly, the Rajasthanis have honed their arts and crafts. The natives are known for their spirited dances and musical renderings, their extremely colorful attire and the royal culture.
Come and witness the culture of RAJASTHAN #atithidevobhava
Great initiatives by @rajasthan_tourism

Spanglish is a 2004 American romantic comedy-drama film written and directed by James L. Brooks. It narrates the story of Cristina Moreno (Shelbie Bruce), who is applying to Princeton University, and her mother, Flor Moreno (Paz Vega).
For her application essay, Cristina tells the story of a year from her childhood, and how it shaped the person she has become today (narrated by Aimee Garcia). Flor is a poor Mexican single mother who moved to America years earlier seeking a better life for her and her daughter, Cristina. She takes on two jobs, but soon cannot maintain them, so Flor's cousin takes her to a job interview to work as a nanny for the Clasky family, consisting of John (Adam Sandler) and Deborah (Téa Leoni), their children Bernice (Sarah Steele) and Georgie (Ian Hayland), and Deborah's mother Evelyn Wright (Cloris Leachman). John is a successful chef and an easy-going man who enjoys cooking and spending time with his children, while Deborah is a former businesswoman turned stay-at-home mother, and Evelyn is slowly developing into an alcoholic.
All the year is narrated by Cristina's essay for Princeton. So, I decided to put together all the narrator parts and see what might come through.
Although the film is now 14 years old, I think its main themes are still current. The obsession with the body image, the immigration topic and the obstacle of the linguistic barriers.
I loved it then, and even more today.
Here's the last line of the movie but you can find the full video on my youtube channel ( link in bio). #spanglish#2004#movie#film#cinephile#2000smovies#differentcultures#embraceyourculture#noborders#nowalls#mexico#america#free#cristinamoreno#cristina#flor#aimeegarcia#pazvega#spanish#english#beautifulmovie#actorslife#jamesbrooks#adamsandler#tealeoni#clorisleachman#cinema#cinemalovers#iloveacting#acting
I grew up feeling ashamed to showcase my culture and ridiculed for speaking my native tongue. Overtime, I’ve learned and seen that diversity is beautiful. Embrace your weird smelly food and cultural celebrations. Happy Hmong New Year everyone! From my family to yours truly ❤️ #embraceyourculture#hmong#hny2018#nyobzooxyootshiab
A little Classroom Comedy on this good Monday. My students use “Moe” so much, I figured I kindly tell them to stop using so much of the glue for their projects in a dialect that they can understand. Hahahaha.
I’m tired of buying this class glue!
You gotta love the D.C. culture.
Growing up my Teachers used to hate us using our D.C. Ebonics. Now that I’m grown I feel that it was as if we were being shamed for enjoying our own culture. Nah Moe! We can’t do that.
I feel that we can do both. We can speak standard English and our own. Kill Moe! ————————————————————

What I love the most about working here is that I get to work alongside my whānau everyday, I get to learn more about my heritage and I get to learn more about my culture and many other cultures throughout the world. I appreciate how I’ve been able to spend more time with my relatives since working at the Waitomo Caves and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for us ☝🏽 It’s more than just a workplace. It’s a part of us. #embraceyourculture#grateful#wairua
