"my ancestors, I will call into the past, far back to the beginning of time and beg them to come and help me at the judgement. I will reach back and draw them into me, and they must come, for at this moment I am the whole reason they have existed at all."***************************

We have to remember the things that are not written ...we have to keep our tradition and our songs ...we have to be keepers of our culture...

This is the way my grandmother and my grandfather dressed, and I dressed almost the same way when I was in folklore. We learned folk songs and dances and we traveled through different countries, performing and sharing our cultural heritage ***This kind of folk costume wasn't easy to make. It took a lot of time,patience, love and creativity to create such wonderful costumes.
