Suku-Suku Koteka Potong Jari untuk Mengekspresikan Kesedihan

Suku Lani, Mee, Walak, Moni yang pada umumnya disebut syku-suku Koteka adalah kelompok etnis yang mendiami Papua Tengah .

Suku-Suku Koteka tersebut secara tradisi mereka 𝑷𝒐𝒕𝒐𝒏𝒈 𝒋𝒂𝒓𝒊. tradisi ini di lakukan jika  di antara keluarga  Bapa, Mama, kakak, atau  adik di antara keluarga dari suku tersebut yang meninggal dunia, maka akan di lakukan tradisi tersebut.

Begitu pula  dengan  suku suku  yang  lain  di  pengunungan  Wesr Papua. Berbagai  suku yang mendiami di darah itupun demikian walau tidak semua.

Tradisi ini sudah mulai punah, hanaya sedikit individu yang masih menggunakan tradisi ini sejak leluhur hingga sekaran.🙏

Bunani adalah agama yang sesungguhnya

Bunani adalah agama yang sesungguhnya kenapa awal sejarah agama agama yang baru masuk dalam erah baru itu di katakan budaya orang asing Yunani alasan untuk eropa Masuk di kepulauan Papua dan Mereka Masuk menguasai tanah Papua dan merak masuk dengan agama itu sebut degan segala macam cara untuk menguasai tanah Papua dengan cara yang pertama mereka Masuk Portugis itu mereka Masuk menguasai degan pendekatan dengan agama atau di sebut dengan budayanya Yunani 

Kita liat dan melihat secara langsung maupun sudah sebelum masuk dengan Portugis itu Agam itu lah di sebut dengan budaya atau Agam itu lah di namakan bunani  
Sepuluh perta gereja itu juga sudah ada dalam budaya juga bunani mengangkat Teteng segalan macam larangan dalam dalam kedupan atau budaya dan bunai punya sepu perintah larangan

Maka itu apa perbedaan agama di an budaya 
Maka itu saya sampaikan kepada seluruh masyarakat Papua peduli Gale kembali budaya budaya setiap susuk yg ada di Papua

Chief Kondom Agaundo from the Narku tribe in Simbu Province

Photo below is of Chief Kondom Agaundo from the Narku tribe in Simbu Province. His famous speach to an audience in Canberra (Australia) in 1963 is as follows:

"In my village I am chief of my people but today I stand in front of you like a child. When I speak in your language, you laugh at the way I speak. But tomorrow, my son will come to you and he will speak to you in your language, and this time, you will NOT laugh at him."

Dr. Cheikh Abta DiopAf4i

According to Senegalese historian Dr. Cheikh Anta Diop, the ancient name of Africa was Alkebulan, which means "mother of mankind" or "garden of Eden". The name was used by the Moors, Nubians, Ethiopians, and other indigenous people.

The name Africa was given to the continent by the ancient Romans and Greeks. Some experts believe that the name Africa comes from two Phoenician words, "friqi" and "pharika", which translate to "corn" and "fruit".
The word "Africa" came into existence in the late 17th century. Initially, it only referred to the northern part of the continent. Around that time, the continent had been colonized, and the Europeans ruled over its people as slaves. They influenced the change of identity from Alkebulan to its present name.

The original inhabitants of the Kenyan capital Nairobi and central Highlands were the Athi, Gumba and Yaaku people who are largely now extinct (see photo)

This was due to the Aborigines intermarriage, assimilation and absorption with the immigrant Bantu from West Africa and the Maasai from Sudan (1000 BC-1AD). 

In turn, the Bantu-present day Kĩkũyũ, Embu and Meru people-and Maasai were violently displaced by British colonialists in 1902, as the Europeans preferred the cool climate of the region for settlement.

Cedella Booker was the mother to Bob Marley

She was born Cedilla Editha Malcolm in Rhoden Hall (July 23, 1926), Saint Ann Parish, Jamaica, daughter of Albertha Whilby and Omeriah Malcolm, a farmer, "bush doctor", and one of the most respected residents of Nine Mile. Her paternal grandfather was Robert "Uncle Day" Malcolm, who descended from the Coromantee (or Akan) slaves shipped to Jamaica from the Gold Coast, today known as Ghana, in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. Cedella Malcolm married Norval Sinclair Marley, a white Jamaican of English and rumored Syrian Jewish descent, whose father's family came from England; the family of his mother, Ellen Marley (née Bloomfield), came from the Levant. She became pregnant with his son, Robert Nesta (whose second given name "Nesta" means "wise messenger"). Norval Marley was an officer as well as the plantation overseer. His family applied constant pressure, however, and although he provided financial support for them, the Captain seldom saw his wife and son. Bob Marley was ten years old when Norval died of a heart attack in 1955 at age 70. Cedella and Bob then moved to Trenchtown, a slum neighborhood in Kingston. This was the only place Booker could afford to live at the time, being a young woman moving from the country to the big city on her own.

While living in Trenchtown, Booker gave birth to a daughter, Claudette Pearl, with Taddeus Livingston, the father of BUNNY WAILER, who formed the original Wailers (The Wailers) trio with Bob Marley and Peter Tosh in 1963. She then married Edward Booker, an American civil servant, and resided first in Delaware, where she gave birth to two more sons, Richard and Anthony, with Booker. After Edward Booker's death in 1976, Cedella moved to Miami, Florida, where she was present at the deathbed of her famous son, who died from cancer in 1981. In 1990, Anthony was killed in a shootout with Miami police, after walking through a shopping mall with a 12 ga. shotgun and opening fire on responding police. Booker lived in Miami for the remainder of her life. She is survived by her son Richard Booker and his children Princess Booker, Crystal Booker and Zaya Booker.

In 1993, Booker conceived and created what is today called the 9 Mile Music Festival, an annual music event held every year since in Miami to help keep alive Bob Marley's message of peace, love, and unity. As part of the admission fee to the one-day music festival, attendees bring canned goods that are collected and donated to help feed the needy in the Miami area through various local charities.

Called "the keeper of the flame," Booker grew voluminous dreadlocks, adopted her grandson Rohan Marley, Bob Marley's son by Janet Hunt, and occasionally performed live with Marley's children, Sharon Marley, Ky-Mani Marley, Ziggy Marley, Cedella Marley, Stephen Marley, Damian Marley and Julian Marley. Later, she released the albums Awake Zion and Smilin' Island of Song. Cedella Booker participated in the festivities in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, commemorating Marley's 60th birthday in 2005. She also wrote two Marley biographies.

Booker died in her sleep from natural causes in Miami on April 8, 2008; she was 81.
