I come from...


I come from the high lands … the mountainous lands…
            I come from the land of the Tainos and Arawaks and their blood still flow through my veins.
            I come from the ancient beatings of the drums of the mother land…
            I come from the world’s first black republic …
            I come from the vodoun culture…
            I come from Bohio, ‘Nan lakou lakay’, (home)…
            I come from Quisqueya, “the mother of all lands”…
            I come from Haiti, “a land which is ours”...
