Bones and Stones Speak, Etowah, GA. (2015)
The Ancestors are always speaking, are you listening? That is the question. As an Ancestrally Inspired Artist, Sufia has always been connected to her Gullah Roots, but did not know the depth to which they actually ran. Her blood runs deep into the dirt of this country, tracing her family's Hadjo/McQueen roots to Amer-Indians migrating from Siberia and crossing the Bering Straits into Mesoamerica. Sufia's Ancestors have been here for millennia, yet her journey is just beginning.
