The name Tribal Immunity stems from the belief that people of color, especially those of African descent, should have freedom of artistic creativity. There are nations of Africans scattered across Earth, working to reclaim past glories, and even though we may speak different languages, we are constantly connected through the world of art. Having immunity means to respectfully celebrate those traditions of our ancestors without judgement or fear.

From West Africa, Ghana specifically, we gain wisdom and insight from Adinkra symbols/Akan words. Sankofa is an Akan word that means, we must go back and reclaim our past so we can move forward; so we understand why and how we came to be who we are today. Acknowledge who you truly are as to propel yourself and your people all the way forward! Source: whenava-tiyewhere.tumblr.com
