—Scroll down for Papiamentu—

Caribbean Ancestry Club is hosting a family-friendly evening full of love, with poetry and spoken word performances, music, kuminda krioyo (island food) and intergenerational talks from ABC & SSS islanders.

For our fourth edition, we will be exchanging experiences on diaspora and island life, memories and family histories, and how to share and archive knowledge for future generations in predominantly oral Caribbean cultures.

During the open mic we will have a conversation with our audience members about the following questions:
~ How can we change the everyday usage of colonial terms (e.g. “indjan”, “indians”) for indigenous ancestors on the ABC & SSS islands?
~ How can we create alternative educational systems that cultivate histories from Afro-indigenous Caribbean perspectives?
~ How can we preserve our material and cultural heritage in a time of ongoing settler-colonialism in the Caribbean?

Caribbean Ancestry Club will host this event in thepiratebay.worm.org, WORM Rotterdam’s in-house archive. We’re excited to contribute the work and legacies of our communities into the archive of WORM, so be sure to bring materials like CDs, DVD, and other materials that you’d like to share with others.

Everybody is welcome to join, but the voices of ABC & SSS islanders will be centralized.

With live performances by:

  • Melody Moon
  • Dajanara Josura
  • Collin Edson
  • Edrieënna Brandao
  • Paco Felipe Martina
  • Nova, Winter & Najee Rosario
  • Andrew Peterson
  • Gilberto Morishaw

Entrance: FREE
Language: English, Dutch, Papiamentu/o

Caribbean Ancestry Club is a project born out of love for the Caribbean, by Alfrida Martis and Daudi Cijntje. Alfrida calls Bonaire home, and Daudi calls Curaçao home. They are proud of their Afro-Caribbean heritage and believe in the healing and restorative powers of love and communion. By organizing events and community gatherings they wish to unite and amplify voices of Afro-indigenous Caribbean peoples, especially islanders from Bonaire, Statia, Saba, Curaçao, Aruba and St. Maarten.

Caribbean Ancestry Club is a space where Caribbean peoples can fully be themselves, exchange their experiences on island and diaspora life, colonialism, intergenerational traumas, activism, cultural rituals and practices, art, ancestral knowledge and family memories.
