TribeFoot is a totally personal, non-academic blog dedicated to unraveling shared cultural heritage of native/indigenous peoples through reawakening, storytelling, and revitalizing ancestral spirit. I am beginning to explore my own cultural displacement as a Filipino-American born and raised in the diaspora.
I have encountered many identity crises as I slowly learned over the years that the generational and cultural divides between my grandparents, parents, and peers are vast.
Despite my very Western upbringing and existence, I am beginning the journey of learning and unlearning some rules and ways of being. I am claiming my identity as a descendant from an indigenous ancestor who was colonized, other-ed, and transported to a foreign place to be heavily marginalized.
Please join me in all the interesting dialogues of our indiGenius and imagiNative roots.
