youtube the amazing

AP found this beauty yesterday.  it’s amazing how familiar these images are.  80 years after this film was made, i rode up the river in dugout canoes and watched as the men hauled the boats up over the rocks.  i washed with a calabash + helped make cassava bread. one note–the film uses the term “Djuka” for all of the Suriname maroons.  watch to the end; there’s dancing.
