“FREEDOM MOUNTAIN” IN VIRGIN ISLANDS USA ? CARL NELSON’S WOLDC NEWS, DR. ChenziRA KAHINA OF THE VICCC, THE “MAROON WOMEN CHAMBER OF COOPERATION” OF THE CARIBBEAN AND “FORT NEGRO’S” FIXICO
HOORAY AND HALLELUJAH
Today is January 10th, 2019, let us continue to pray for those who are less fortunate than ourselves.
On December 14th of 2018, I called into Carl Nelson’s WOLDC NEWS Show . I made an important annoucement. In it I explained that in 2015 I had been brought to the Republic of Suriname by the : Maroon Women Chamber of Cooperation” for their National Maroon Day Celebration
During my visit to the Royal Island of Diitabiti I spoke and performed a Peace Belt Ceremony at the Kinti, their Congressional seat of power. In my speech to the Maroon Leaders, I asked for a: “CULTURAL ALLIANCE” between North American Maroons and their Descendants, with the Maroons of Suriname.
This year in October, Suriname’s 6 Maroon Nations signed a Unity document that bonds all the nations together. In response to this treaty, the Maroon Women Chamber of Cooperation has accepted my offer of a “CULTURAL ALLIANCE”. It shall begin as a recognition of “FRIENDSHIP” observed by: THE WILLING” members of both sides, including: the Jamaican Maroons represented by : Queen Gaama Gloria “MaMa G” Simms, the Merikin Maroons of Trinidad (who are African-American Descendants) represented by: Merikin Foundation President Akilah Jaramogi and the the Maroons of Suriname, represented by: her Excellency Dr. Ambassador Fidelia Graand-Galon.
I have a new “Important Annoucement”, it is this: In 2012 , I was brought to VI-US by SUCCEED Inc. Whose Director is ClaudetteYoung Hinds , there I met Dr. ChenziRa Kahina Director of the Virgin Islands Caribbean Cultural Center connected to University of the Virgin Islands. My purpose for been invited was to speak at the “Inaugural Sacred Maroon Ridge” Symposium and to give the Invocation on the Maroon Sacred Ridge itself.
I have for sometime promoted that concept of a Black and Indigenous Mount Rushmore, using Maroon and Indigenous Ancestors as the Historical Figures featured on a mountain somewhere in the Caribbean . The first location to be considered will be: “THE SACRED MAROON RIDGE” LOCATED ON ST CROIX. VI-US, our further dream is that it would include a museum and a theater.
We are asking for Western Hemisphere wide input on Who, Where and How this DREAM MOUNTAIN can be conceived. Some of the Ancestors Heros and Heroines that come to my mind are : Marcus Garvey, MLK, Jr. Malcolm X, NANNY GRANNY, HARRIET TUBMAN ,ELIJAH MUHAMMAD, OSEOLA, YANGA, Toussaint L’ouvrture, Bob Marley and ect..
Remember VI-US is in the United States and that fact could encourage some prominent African Americans to donate.There are many ways that it could be accomplished : A wall with Mural , seperate Easter Island style statures, a “HOLLYWOOD SIGN” style, etc. ,these techniques would be less cost prohibitive than disturbing the Rain Forest by cutting into the mountain.
