We all carry within the essence of our civilizations endow in our sacred nature.
Sacred nature because we have enchored inherently the origin, the source, the soil which give us roots and elemental breath to essentially thrive high and above all that is limiting.
My venture in this regard brought Circles of Our Civilizations notion, an inspiration which first spark came to me a little more than 20 years ago.
It was then an evidence. Today, it is a call stronger than anything and everything…
There was a need then to prove, through my ancestral lineage, my unquestionable existence rising from remarkably skillful and ingenious progressive civilizations.
Today’s conviction is that it is essential for all of us to acknowledge the universal and nurturing well of our civilization's timeless spirit, always there within our reach, deeply rooted in us.
Bringing upfront and spreading at large the values of those cultures induce to elevate our consciousness and pierce through their underlying reality...
Seizing the flame, appreciating and integrating it with respect and integrity, ensures better balance and harmony in all, for ourselves and the whole humanity.
Born in Haiti, I
carry Indigenous, Kemet / Nubian and Caribbean lineage in me, body and soul.
The Circles of Our Civilisations notiion takes its roots in the days when
I was a student in visual arts and languages at the University of Ottawa. I went more to the library than to my classes, though.
In fact, the
great library of that renowned institution was overwhelmingly garnished with myriads
of works on Indigenous, Kemet /Nubian and Caribbean art history and cultures. A gold
mine in itself.
Believe it or not,
in the cursus on art history, theories and practices, there was nothing about Indigenous,
Kemet / Nubian and Caribbean cultures, just as if they were non-existent.
This bias got strongly under my skin; it was a clear statement that I do not exist. However if we understand that We are One, rectification is essential.
"A woman in harmony with her spirit is like a river flowing.
She goes where she will without pretense and arrives at her destination ready to be herself and only herself."
That’s where this daring spirit comes from.
people lineages are spread in all continents on the planet.
We’re all conscious that they have been discriminate to the extent of eradication if not to the lowest denigration. In a lot of cases, it’s been apparently a success.
However, here and there, there’s evidence that they were able to keep alive the essence of the ancestral cultures they had inherited.

The Circles of Our civilizations notion is an action based research with the starting point to claim the integral history of humanity from within and, from a growing awareness that all men's and women's misfortunes stem from not knowing how to dance life.
This project is viable as a place of integrative assertion of our ancestral knowledge legacies, in position to serve, promote and share our ancestral artworks still present in Indigenous, Kemet / Nubian and Caribbean cultures.
This project is in its infancy.
The major structural foundations are visualized, consisting of:
