KUUMBA een de Gullah/Geechee Nation-Creativity and Community
During Kwanzaa 2013, Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.QueenQuet.com) focused on the sixth principle of Nguzo Saba by giving background on the various methods of creativity and their manifestations in the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.gullahgeecheenation.com). Queen Quet addresses the fact that Gullah/Geechee creativity does not start nor end with sweetgrass basketry, quilting, painting, singing, nor dancing. In fact, it goes well beyond the boundaries of these artistic and skilled crafts of the Gullah/Geechees to the very creation of this unique culture.
