“Roots and Traditions”

Roots and Traditions is a recent article published in the 2017 FTG Times a Farms to Grow, Inc Newsletter. On a recent Alaska Airline flight, as I often do, I read the in-flight magazine. While reading the December Beyond Magazine, much to my enjoyment and surprise, I came across two incredible articles that reminded me of some of the stories I’ve heard from African American farmers, fishermen and women. The first article by Eric Lucas -- Life on the Water -- is about surfers in Hawaii and Polynesian water navigators. The second article by Clifford Nae’ole -- Man of the Sea, Man of the Land-- is about his two Hawaiian grandfathers. I was struck by the similarities of both of these articles
