(What’s the News?!)
In case you don’t follow my social media, I started celebrating Kwanzaa while abroad, in Japan this year. Unfortunately, due to travel and a bit of jet lag, I wasn’t able to share the last two principles. I did, however, promise that they’d be shared today. So here’s my hand styles of the seven principles of Kwanzaa.
Oi! Gomen ne … (My apologies >.<)
In case you aren’t familiar with Kwanzaa and it’s week long celebration from December 26 to January 1, please check out a few links.
(Unity): To strive for and to maintain unity in the family, community, nation, and race.
(Self-Determination): To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves, and speak for ourselves.
(Collective Work and Responsibility): To build and maintain our community together and make our brothers’ and sisters’ problems our problems, and to solve them together.
(Cooperative Economics): To build and maintain our own stores, shops, and other businesses and to profit from them together.
(Purpose): To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.
(Creativity): To do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.
(Faith): To believe with all our hearts in our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders, and the righteousness and victory of our struggle.
