PUERTO RICAN WOMEN

I’m a proud Boricua woman

My heritage comes from Taíno, Spanish and African roots.

All of which I’m very proud of.

Many came before me … and in 1950, I was born!

The recorded history of women in Puerto Rico can trace its roots back to the era of the Taíno, the indigenous people of the Caribbean, who inhabited the island that they called “Borikén” before the arrival of Spaniards. During the Spanish colonization the cultures and customs of the Taíno, Spanish, African and women from non-Hispanic European countries blended into what became the culture and customs of Puerto Rico.

In the early part of the 19th Century the women in Puerto Rico were Spanish subjects and had little individual rights. Those who belonged to the upper class of the Spanish ruling society had better educational opportunities then those who did not. However, there were many women who were already active participants in the labor movement and in the agricultural economy of the island.

After Puerto Rico was ceded to the United States in 1898 as a result of the Spanish–American War, women once again played an integral role in Puerto Rican society by contributing to the establishment of the University of Puerto Rico, women’s suffrage, women’s rights, civil rights, and to the military of the United States.

During the period of industrialization of the 1950’s, many women in Puerto Rico found employment in the needle industry, working as seamstresses in garment factories. Many Puerto Rican families also migrated to the United States in the 1950’s.

HONORING PUERTO RICO

PERSONAL PHOTOGRAPH MADE WITH ‘LIVE COLLAGE’

“That looks like a Puerto Rican statue of liberty on steroids.”

(a friend told me)

Some of you may know, others not.

I am a fan of tattoos, having a few of them myself.

I’m also Puerto Rican, born and raised, living in the mainland.

Since September 20, 2017, when Hurricane María battered and almost flattened my country, my personal feelings have come to the surface.

My heart and soul ache for Puerto Rico.

It’s been a week today since I visited my tattoo artist for add ons, updates, coloring and completion.

Colors, shading, The ‘cemí’, the hibiscus flowers, the ‘Taíno coquí’ and the ‘Taíno sun‘ were completed.

The process is almost totally done.

Only minor details for the last sitting.

My tattoo artist, Barefoot Stacy, is amazing!

Here it is!

This is a proud Boricua woman, holding her head up high, ready to hold her stand and give the good fight.

This happens in Puerto Rico every minute of every day.

The fortitude of the Puerto Rican woman has been tested during the trying times since Hurricane María battered the Island on September 20, 2018, a bit beyond six months ago today.

I wanted to share another ‘almost complete’ result with you today.

 More will follow as it’s totally done.

Today I visited my tattoo artist again for add ons, updates, coloring and, mostly, for completion.

Colors, shading, The ‘cemí’, the hibiscus flowers, the ‘Taíno coquí’ and the ‘Taíno sun‘ were completed.

It is still a bit swollen, it’s still a bit ‘shiny’. 

The process is almost totally done.

Give a few weeks for skin healing and then another ‘sitting’ for any needed last detail.

My tattoo artist, Barefoot Stacy, is amazing!

Here it is!

MAY DAY

~April showers bring May flowers ~
🌺 🌸🌼🌸🌺🌼🌸🌺🌼🌸🌼🌺

May Day is a public holiday usually celebrated on May 1.

It is an ancient northern hemisphere spring festival.

What is May Day?
Depending on where you are, it’s either a seasonal celebration or a day to celebrate workers’ rights, or maybe a little bit of both.

Think of the latter use as a Labor Day, if you will, for the rest of the world.
