OAS/GNT Sustainable Heritage Endorsement ProgrammePHOTOVOICE PROMPT #1: THAT’S WE CULTURE
What do you see here? (Addressed to the whole group)
Face, tree trunk, flowers, spa in the background, a man bend down near the fence.
Why did you take this photo? (Addressed to the photographer)
Represents Tainos and other from that era. We tend to base the culture on Africa but it started way back. We had indigenous people’s living her long before.
What is really happening here? (Addressed to the whole group—alternatively what does the photograph represent?)
We are mostly of African descent but we can acknowledge the other aspects of who we are. – – –
We have art and artifacts from indigenous people but not so much the culture. We have objects but not really a sense of the cultural traditions, those weren’t passed along so much.
Some food traditions probably, like maybe some of the crops we use.
