Ancient Sāmoa once conception was established there was a ritual bration. This was known as afuafua (beginning). The prayers, chants & rituals of afuafua are today replaced by Christian prayers & special food. Today this ritual of conception is rarely performed; even the word afuafua & its meaning seems lost. When thinking about the ethical debates over stem cells, I asked one faatosaga: ‘What about the use of the cells of a dead foetus for research?’ She replied: ‘That is a breach of tapu.’ In her opinion the body is sacred & should return to the earth. To tamper with the body of a dead foetus is to show disrespect for the sacred, that the body retains its sacred essence, its tapu quality, even upon death. The dead body returns to its Creator without outside interference. It returns to its ator by the very route of its birth -back to the earth. This principle of respecting the origins of man’s genealogical link with the earth is implicit in ancient Sāmoan practices of ritually burying the placenta & umbilical cords in the earth. When asking the same faatosaga about whether there are any tapu on burying the placenta & umbilical cords, she replied: ‘[Our] cultural claim to any land or earthly inheritance is premised on a genealogical connection with the earth - this is tapu & is recognised by adherence to the ritual’ [O le faavae o le mau nei, o le sootaga ma le ‘eleele]. The sayings ‘o le ‘eleele o lea e tanu ai lo’u pute’ (‘the land where my pute is buried’) & ‘tama o le ‘eleele’ (‘man of the earth’) signal the ancient connection between man & earth. The sacred aspects of these rituals is commemorated in a belief held among most faatosaga that omitting to bury the placenta & pute back to the earth can materially affect people. When asked in what way, one faatosaga answered: ‘We can tell by the te’ite’ivale (highly strung & overly sensitive) or lili’a (a sense of vertigo; someone who is very emotionally & physically afraid of heights) qualities of a person.’ Regardless of the validity of these intuitive claims, what the faatosaga provide are insights into our Sāmoan indigenous reference & the possible contours & content of a Sāmoan indigenous ethic of care.

On this day in 1975, one of the greatest stories in sports was written. Ali v Frazier, The Trilogy. - The “Thrilla in Manila” lives on through the ages, not just because it was the rubber match that became a pivot point to establish the greatest of all time, but because each dropped the other off at the doorstep of death. After the fight, Ali, his body not allowing him to sit up straight from the trauma Frazier inflicted on it, said as much. - @rootsoffight 2019 Thrilla Collection is available now.

Fa’aSāmoa speaks through a feau or message. In ancient Sāmoan times, it was custom for the young men’s guild to visit other villages & share a “po ula” (night festivities much condemned by missionaries) with the “aualuma” (young women’s guild). The purpose was social intercourse, entertainment & a search for wives. When the ladies are loathe to respond, the “aumaga” (young men’s guild) will chant derisively. Their chant may, in translation, seem crude but actually it is subtle humour & derision used to save face in situations of rejection. In the village of Asau there is the celebrated story of Tafa. He said to the aumaga, “I want to tell you that tomorrow I shall press my suit with the pastor’s daughter”. As is custom, the aumaga prepared a meal to await Tafa’s return. Tafa pressed his suit with the pastor & his wife and the pastor responded, “It is not for us to make the decision. We have sent for the girl & you can ask her yourself”. The girl came & Tafa made his offer of marriage. The girl politely refused. Tafa pursued his suit from 10am until about 3pm. The girl was adamant that she did not want to marry. Tafa was in a dilemma: to continue to pursue the suit or confront the aumaga. Either way he would lose face. To redeem himself, he opted for an unusual course of action. As he left he saw a rock fence surrounding the pastor’s house. He strolled across the lawn, climbed the fence & stood at the top, turned his back on the pastor & his family, bowed in the opposite direction, raised his lava lava & called out, “Hey take a look & tell me what time it is!” When Tafa reached the house of the aumaga the leader of the aumaga asked, “How did it go?” Tafa responded, “Pity me the girl turned down my offer of marriage”. The leader of the aumaga called on the aumaga to join him in chant: Ua leaga, ua malaia! Ua taea, ua leaga! Faamoe ia o le toa, Soia le toe malaga! It is bad, it is cursed! It is shit, it is bad! Put the cock to sleep, Let it not travel again! Indeed there is interaction – certainly not motivated by alofa. But it is better to chant than to be depressed & suicidal. ARTWORK @manusina_art

We like to say #KnowYourRoots ...and no one is more appreciative of their roots than DJ. #CultureOfGreatness #8thWonder #TheHighChief ・・・ What a crazy throwback from the 70’s. Here’s the “8th Wonder of the World” André the Giant, using my 315lb grandfather, High Chief Peter Maivia as a booster seat and making my granddad look like a little boy. They were the best of friends, wrestled nightly, tough as hell and as you can see by their smiles and open energy - they lived like to the absolute fullest. My grandfather died when I boy so I never got to know him as a man. Would’ve loved to have raised a tequila with these men. Would’ve also loved to have wrestled them too - those would’ve been fun ass kickin’s for me to take 😉 #thegiant #andthehighchief 🥃

“It’s important to teach our children their heritage. Who are your ancestors? What were their traditions? Each of us has a story to tell.

No one's spirituality should become a commodity. Be thoughtful when you explore the beliefs and spiritual practices of others. They are not there for your taking, to make you feel better about your colonial ancestors. Explore your own roots, find the magic there. Find connection within. Taking advantage of others is not part of a true spiritual path. #spiritualityisnotforsale #indigeneoushistory #colonialism #newagespirituality #knowyourroots #respectfirst

Meet Oxbo. This gentle giant is the unsung hero of our harvest and handles all the heavy lifting...eh picking. It drives over the top, yep you read that right, over the top of our olive trees. The white rods you see inside the oxbo rapidly move in and out against the trees to harvest the olives. At upwards of 2MPH it’s not a candidate for the land speed record, but it’s the most advanced and efficient way to harvest olives! #organicrootsevoo #knowyourroots #californiaorganic #californiaoliveoil

Ancient Kemetic Tradition: The embalmers left the heart in the body because they believed the person's intellect and knowledge resided in the heart so it needed to remain with the body. The other organs were removed because they would cause the body to decay if left in place. As much water as possible was removed to help prevent decay. The Kemetic people were advanced in #science , #astrology , #mathematics , #chemistry , #agriculture , #spirituality .... You name it! They also knew that God gave man Two eyes to Look and One Eye to See! STUDY YOUR ANCESTORS! 👀🧠👁❤ 𓁀 𓁁 𓁂 𓁃 #knowthyself #knowyourroots #blackhistory

These lawmakers will take a break from impeachment to end federal ban on marijuana From left, Reps. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., and Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., announce at a Nov. 29, 2019 press conference in Washington that the House Judiciary Committee will take up legislation ending the federal ban on marijuana. WASHINGTON — A House committee is poised to take the first step toward removing the federal ban on marijuana, ending a conflict between federal aw and states that have legalized the drug for medical or personal use. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler on Wednesday will bring up his own bill to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level and leave it to the states to decide whether to legalize cannabis. That’s the same committee that will be tasked with drafting articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump if the ongoing investigation by the House Intelligence Committeeturns up evidence to warrant such action. " The federal government should not be imposing its heavy hand where there is no reason to do so,” said Nadler, D-N.Y., at a press conference Tuesday to announce that his committee would debate and vote on the bill. News of the federal action came a day after New Jersey legislative leaders abandoned their own effort to legalize marijuana for recreational use and instead ask the voters to approve a referendum next year. Nadler said he expected the federal bill to pass with a bipartisan vote. While several other House panels also have jurisdiction over the measure, Nadler said he hoped the other committees will acquiesce and allow the legislation to go straight to the House floor. By decriminalizing marijuana, states would be free to decide whether to legalize or outlaw the drug within their own borders, without running afoul of federal law. Banks would face no restrictions on their ability to offer checking accounts and credit cards to legal cannabis businesses. #decriminalize #vote #lawmakers #federalban #federal #washington #banks #control #grow #growyourown #harvest #growcannabis #flower #plant #holysmokestv #holysmokes #holysmokescrafts #oneman #solo #cannabis #reform

Philosophy - the original meaning comes from the Greek roots philo- meaning “love” & -sophos, or “wisdom”. The definition of the word today means the study of proper behavior, and the search for wisdom... When someone studies philosophy they want to understand the logic of HOW & WHY people do certain things & how to live a fulfilling life... in other words, they want to know the meaning of life. For those wondering WHY I fell off the face of the planet, it’s because I nearly hit rock bottom, but all of it led me to discover & realize my purpose... so I’ve still been around, just in the background doing the much needed inner work & prioritizing what’s important. For an entire year, I have felt stifled creatively & I’m here to say, I’m about to show up. Some may roll their eyes at this post, but the medical geek, Greek mythology lover, classical musician & choir kid in me will always appreciate the root words that our language was derived from. Latin may also be dead, but it is still very much alive to me. When you think your life is unimportant & you have no story to leave behind, you will find life again & I hope you speak life into those around you 🖤 Legacies can be left in the most unexpected ways... if you touch one soul in your lifetime, you’ve done your part to forever change the world 🌍 that person’s course in life could be altered because of you & redirected to something much better & that impacts every single soul that they will ever interact with. The littlest things amount to big things, never doubt it ✌🏻

The NBA's reaction to a rare dunk from Danny Green: A drug test With Kobe Bryant on hand for the Los Angeles Lakers’ game against the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday, Danny Green threw down a putback dunk so vicious that the Lakers bench couldn’t contain itself. The player widely known as one the NBA’s top sharpshooters had just delivered one of the best dunks of the season for a team that has LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Dwight Howard and JaVale McGee on its roster. The Lakers couldn’t believe it, and neither could the NBA, possibly. Green tweeted Monday that after the game, the league’s drug testers came calling. Green would go on to finish with 11 points on 4-of-7 shooting (3-of-6 from deep) and seven rebounds in a 122-101 Lakers win. Obviously, this is all probably a coincidence. NBA rules dictate that players are subject to as many as four random drug tests during the season and the league probably picked Monday for the test in advance. Dunks from Green are a relative rarity throughout his career. By Basketball Reference’s count, he’s thrown down only 48 since he entered the league, an average of 4.4 per season and .076 per game. Of course, he’s not incapable of posterizing players. Just ask Duke’s Greg Paulus. #nba #drugtest #dunk #dannygreen #basketball #420daily #420 #holysmokestv #holysmokes #holysmokescrafts #oneman #solo #cannabis #reform #legalization #safeaccess #news #ismokecannabis #medicalcannabis #thc #cbd #breal #massroots #rawlife #rawlife247 #losangeles #california #ca #la #knowyourroots

The first time I ever left the country, I was a senior in college - and I went to Trinidad to study world religion. It was AMAZING. I was scared out of my mind. But it was still amazing. I find myself lately doing scary things - because if it scares me, I feel like I should do it. And so, Barry and I find ourselves this week on a trip to Guayaquil, Ecuador. Why? We are going to the Finca Botanical Farm to see how Young Living farms there. We're going to the Nova Vita Spa to get some non-conventional health treatments. We're going to serve at the Young Living Foundation school. I'm going to the local market to buy alpaca items and leather goods - and to barter even though IT SCARES THE LIVING CRAP OUT OF ME. And as usual, I step away from social media when I'm on a trip - even more so this time because wifi will be spotty. I cannot wait to share photos when I get back! How about YOU do one scary thing this week - and then come tell me about it.

Apparently my ancestors gained the name we are called by from a basket. They were migrating from the Nile region to their present homeland and found a lady seated on a hill weaving a basket, & settled there. (Either a she was very remarkable lady, or the land itself was or the basket was ... who knows?) I have so many questions about that story, but enjoyed reading this as I visited our National Library this afternoon. I imagined sharing this oral history with my LO someday... letting him know where he’s from. #africanhistory #nonfictionnovember #kenyanhistory #africanwriters #knowyourroots #kenya #bookstagram

I recently had the *sweetest* experience. I was at Kroger’s customer service & the topic came up with the employee behind the counter that I am a new local author. (🤩) After she asked what the title of my book was, her eyes got big and she said, “Ok. Tell me more.” When I explained that it’s about a boy’s first day of work at his family’s legacy, a candy factory, her eyes started to get watery! She gasped and said, “That’s me!” She is the great great great granddaughter to a candy maker! I couldn’t believe it! We had such a fun conversation about how she still loves to smell the wooden spoons from the factory.☺️ It was the little spark I needed saying, keep on going! This is good!

This is my great grandfather Buck Johnson in his performance outfit. From what I've been told he was "a hell of a fiddle player". I hope he would have been proud that his son (my grandfather) two of his grandsons (my dad and uncle) and one of his great grandsons (me 😁) have followed in his musical footsteps. #knowyourroots
