Gullah is more than a language or dialect.........
................it is a culture.


Thousands of enslaved Africans survived the middle passage to reach the sea island shores. The majority of the slaves, 40,000, came from a section of Africa known as Angola . With the people --Mende, Kisi , Malinke, and Bantu-- came the soul of Africa . Their ancestral traditions survived as well. The words "Gullah" and "Geechee" have come to describe that legacy.

This rich culture flourishes today; in their language, their music, their art, their skills and their foods. Storytellers spin their tales, entwining fun and wisdom. Choirs preserve the haunting songs and the old rhythms. Sweetgrass basket weavers, "long strip" quilters, and fabric artists combine their modern materials and ancestral skills in ancient ways to produce remarkable wares. Chefs create the magic of the old recipes. This is the heritage of a Gullah.
