  10. "Adaeze means the daughter of a king in Igbo. Igbos do not believe in Kings. They have a traditional democratic system where women and men have their peer groups and are represented. I think the name is ironic. Kings never truly existed in Igboland till the colonizers arrived. Ada in Igbo means daughter. First daughter to be precise. It is one of the most beautiful names in Igbo. It is also a title for first daughters. Umuada are a group of women from the same community who meet up to discuss on how to improve their various communities. In Nigeria, Igbo women can be seen every Sunday afternoon with colorful wrappers, running to meet up with their fellow women from the same village no matter how far away from home they are. I used to watch in amazement as they helped each other, warning abusive husbands and praising women who were doing great in business while helping others who needed help. I grew up surrounded by such women who would not let you lift a finger during your celebration. You should see them, cooking together, laughing together and celebrating each other. Igbo men would say, no matter what you do never make Umuada angry. Simply put, do not hurt their sisters."

  14. "Now “tribal trends” are totally “in.” You can walk into any store in the mall and see “Native” imagery everywhere. As a Native person, when I look at them, I can’t help but remember the not-so-distant past when my people weren’t allowed, by law, to wear these things. It’s such a constant reminder of the colonial power structures still in place. Back in the day, white people had the power to take away our culture, and now they have the power to wear it however they see fit. These are our images, our cultural symbols, yet we are completely powerless to have control over them."
