@the@thepanafrican expresses exactly how my skwod and I feel about the movie and this point in time for the diaspora! Thx! .... Credit to from @thepanafrican - Yes we know the story line is not real but the impact is, the representation of several prominent African ancient tribes like the #himba #dahomeyamazons #nilotic peoples like the #Nuer #Dinka #murle #maasai #zulu #sotho #mursi #xhosa #akan are very real and I am happy and proud to see the joy and pride on the faces of the many people who adorned themselves in their ethnic group traditional wear and go out to represent. It’s not about the movie.... well it is .....it’s an amazing move... but this is a movement... it’s such a thrill to see black women revered and respected , not because of their body but their prowess, intellect, skill and wit......they say that we are savage because we fight against each other.... but go look at Troy like it’s a big difference, boast about the Vikings like they weren’t savage, like Rome wasn’t the same... ..Like Britain wasn’t Britannia and didn’t have tribes that hated and fought against each other...... etc etc.....the truth of the matter is ....Brother do sometimes fight against brother, sisters do sometimes do the same.. to each other... we are no worse than anyone... showing Africa as a place of wonder and power and innovation is not a new thing because we know this but showing it on this scale stokes a curiosity about our beloved continent .....and forces a new perspective... this is what the movement is about... a galvanizing of the people on the continent and diaspora... in one voice we say: ...We are a people, we are beautiful and complex , we vary, we are not a monolith , we don’t all look the same but we are human....just like any other. We have our hero’s and our villains just like any other. .......... And for all it’s worth... I couldn’t be happier and more proud of who I am... and one more thing.....Like Monique said.....I love us for real 😂🌸🌸 and #webeenroyal .#wakandaforever #africaforever - #regrann

WILD BORN PROJECT- Explore ~ Revitalize ~ Nurture Katjtindi's birth was a calm birth. I had the honor of sharing these precious moments with her and with her supportive sisters. We were at her partially made mud hut that she built with the help of her mother and sister up to the day before the birth. They were building a home for her and for her new baby. Her contractions started at around 5am, and we were joined by a second midwife from the village. We were six women in this small hut. This was one of the most powerful experienced of my life. In the early morning the light started penetrating through the cracks between the walls of the hut, which created a peaceful and calm atmosphere. Katjtindi was nurtured, for hours by her sisters, she was calm through the whole process, completely trusting her sisters. I felt something that I've never felt before, I was a part of a powerful women circle that connected me to a collective female power. I discovered how birth can be a euphoric experience, a way of accessing a unique power. Katjtindi gave birth to a healthy baby girl, several hours later.

As some of us prance about calling ourselves #nativewakandan , these indigenous, living nations are being slowly eroded due to globalism, global market capitalism, and the furtherance of colonialism from baby colonial states in which these OLDER nations reside. Many of these nations are being FORCED to turn into minstrel showcases for tourists, just to be able to get MONEY to PURCHASE meat and fruits because their homes, where they once hunted and grazed, were turned into NATIONAL PARKS. Children now MADE to attend schools just to learn a "greater" access to GLOBAL CURRENCY. Don't dope off the happy gas. A fantasy should never replace a reality. Re-direct your vigor toward what matters. Legitimize yourself. Stan Lee and Jack Kirby should not be your cultural gatekeepers. I am my ancestors. Their voices are my own. #notanativewakandan #zulu #san #hausa #yoruba #himba #beforetherewasanafrica #colonialism #babycolonialstates #maasai #tuareg #globalism #uganda #batwa #southafrica #tanzania #nigeria #bahamas #diaspora

Mientras nos dirigíamos hacia las Cataratas Epupa en la frontera entre Angola y Namibia íbamos dejando por el camino poblados de la tribu Himba. Allí, en medio de la nada, en una zona árida donde parece imposible que nadie pueda subsistir, ellos construyeron sus poblados y viven aislados sin cambiar sus costumbres y su forma de vida. Fué una suerte poder visitar uno de estos poblados, conocerles, conocer su forma de vida, sus costumbres, jugar con los niños y formar parte de un día en sus vidas. Una experiencia muy enriquecedora. Historia de los Himba: es un grupo del pueblo Herero que en el Siglo XIX fué aislado. Emigraron desde la zona de los grandes lagos atravesando Zambia para establecerse en ambas márgenes del río Kunene que sirve como frontera entre Angola y Namibia. A lo largo de los años esta tribu ha sido víctima de varias calamidades y ha sufrido períodos de intensas sequías. Los Himba han logrado mantenerse aislados y no cambiar sus costumbres y forma de vida pero debido al aumento del turismo y al alcohol esto esta empezando a cambiar.#himba#namibia#epupafalls#kunene#tribu

Living In semi arid terrain, the #himba dedicate much of their time to the collection of water for survival. Donkeys are one of the favorite modes of transport in what can be at times hours of walking in the blazing sun of #namibia.

Here, a Himba boy slowly comes over to me very inquisitive about my presence and my camera while taking a mug of water back to younger sister. (The people of this region are abosultely extraordinary. The Himba is a very traditional tribe of semi-nomadic pastoralist that have resisted change and preserved their unique cultural heritage. They share a common ethnic origin with the Herero tribe, having split from the main Herero group in the Namibia / Botswana border region and live in the north of Namibia and southern regions of Angola) #tribes #africa #namibia #nikon #himba #earth #portraits #ig_exquisite #ilcp_photographers #photo #peo#peoplephotography #photodocumentary #iamnikon #africangeographic #wildernessquest #profile_vision #pixel_ig #portraits_ig #agameoftones #portraits_universe #artofvisuals #featurepalette #portraiture #top_portraits @africageo #instagood #earthfocus #natgeo #natgeowild #peoplephotography
