Reposted from @hausofhoodoo@hausofhoodoo This video is HYPNOTIC. I’ve been watching it nonstop for the past 10 minutes. It puts me in a trance. I can feel what she’s feeling in her body, in her spirit. I was just telling my Mother (Godmother) how much I miss our Vodou parties (ceremonies, fets). Dancing is a vital part of our culture and traditions. Through dance we enter trance and ecstasy like state. Dancing to those drums is ORGASMIC. Through dance we let go of inhibitions, stigmas, attachments and allow ourselves to be taken over and under. As I watch this video over and over again I can’t help but crave to be her, in that moment. There’s no feeling like it I can assure you of that. I want to get lost and found in the experience. The drums are Spirits of their own and they are the first thing we greet (salute) when a ceremony begins. We first become possessed by the Spirit of the drums before we are possessed by the other Vodou. . . #vodou #vodoun #culture #traditions #ancestors #africa #caribbean #afrocaribbean . . . #Repost @cccadi ・・・ Happy International Women's Day! • Today we are celebrating the legacy of renaissance woman Katherine Dunham! (1909-2006). • Katherine Dunham was a legendary African American + French Canadian dancer, choreographer, anthropologist, activist, and creator of the world-renowned Dunham technique. Dunham revolutionized American dance and shed light on the dances of the African Diaspora: places such as Haiti, Jamaica, and Trinidad. • Dunham was a pioneer in the use of folk and ethnic choreography and one of the founders of the anthropological dance movement. She showed the world that African American heritage is beautiful. She completed groundbreaking work on the Caribbean and Brazilian dance anthropology as a new academic discipline. She also is credited with bringing these Caribbean and African influences to a European-dominated dance world. • Video courtesy of the British Pathé, FILM ID: 1291.19 • #CCCADI #AfricanDiasporaHome #AfricanDiaspora #KatherineDunham #WomensHistory #WomensHistoryMonth #InternationalWomensDay #IWD #IWD2018 #AfricanAmerican #BlackExcellence #AfricanAmericanDance #BlackDance #DunhamTechnique

Inclusion - Respect - Equality 2018 was a big year for empowering women to be everything they can be. Sadly the scales still are not quite equal and many women suffer from discrimination or seek approval from men for to seek their own achievements. If you’re in Melbourne this IWD there’s going to be a really interesting symposium and debate investigating this issue. It’s 2019! Let’s support and encourage each other to grow, learn and succeed no matter of our gender. https://managersandleaders.com.au/events/international-womens-day-great-debate-2018-melbourne/ Screenshots from IWD 2018.

This week has been immense on so many levels. Essays got me questioning why I even got a scholarship, my emails have been stacking up & I’ve been struggling to catch up on work. These are the times when I think is it really worth it but I’m so grateful for the amazing opportunities that I have right now. Determined to really enjoy this year & make the most out of being a student. 🤗 🧡 . . . #womenofcolour #bame #girlpower #fitnessgirl #weightlossjourney #inspirationalquotes #blackgirlsrock #melanin #melaninpoppin #womeninbusiness #celebratingwomen #womenempowerment #entrepreneurlife #entrepreneur #womenwhowin #womenwhohustle #celebratingwomenhood #sisterhood #empoweringwomen #empowerment #iwd #iwd19 #iwd2019 #progress #womenwhogrow
