Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.QueenQuet.com) initiated the”Save the Sea Islands” annual tour over two decades ago. In that period of time, she has taken the Gullah/Geechee story to national and international platforms including numerous United Nations events, UNESCO, and most recently to the Global Climate Action Summit. She will then depart once again for the United Nations. Those that want to support her UN journey which will include three more events during 2018 can contribute to that aspect of the “Gullah/Geechee Save the Sea Islands Tour” via this GoFundMe campaign: https://www.gofundme.com/gullahgeechee-queen-quet-goes-toun

Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.QueenQuet.com) has been on her annual world tour since the beginning of the year. Given that the Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition (www.GullahGeechee.net) which she founded is now 20 years old, she returned to the theme that launched her into taking the Gullah/Geechee story internationally and themed the tour, “Gullah/Geechee Save the Sea Islands.” Queen Quet has been to all fifty states of the United States and is now seeking to speak to people in every county in South Carolina. She has already spoken in more than half of them over her nearly 40 year career leading the charge to authentically present the Gullah/Geechee language, history, and cultural traditions.
