Tune in for the 23rd episode of “Zooming in on Sustainability” as Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.QueenQuet.com) is joined by de Gullah/Geechee Famlee. E gwine crak e teet bout Healin we @GullahGeechee.
Queen Quet was given a statement by the ancestors in a vision and this became the Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition’s motto which has been incorrectly published as a “Gullah proverb” by many that did not cite Queen Quet for the origin of the quote:
“Hunnuh mus tek cyare de root fa heal de tree.”
However, she has lived these words as she’s worked on behalf of the Gullah/Geechee community for over thirty five years and she continues to stand and lead the efforts to keep Gullah/Geechee culture alive and heal the community from the hostility and misrepresentation that they have endured.
