Uplift Native Voices #UNV: Wampumpeg

I feel very fortunate to be living in a part of America that has Native communities and Native museums.

When I first got to America, I felt like I walked in on an argument. I arrived here via Botswana/ South Africa in February and the year was 2004. We arrived via New York (our port of entry) and it was SO COLD my fingers lost feeling.

Latoya Francis

For a long time, we’ve thought of interviewing the people that make up our philanthropic/ business world. From clients to those we work with via B2B partnerships.

Latoya Francis happens to be one of those we do supply. She is the founder of Dhamiri-i, a nonprofit organization that is based out of The Cayman Islands and Jamaica.

She. Is. Salve.

She says things that make me want to grab a pen and write again
She talks and uses terms like “The History of Women” in sentences or inspires me to title pieces as “Girl Child Raised By a Rebel Man”
