4 Ocean

One World Blue, LLC
The 4ocean Bracelet
To pull one pound of trash from the ocean and coastlines for every product purchased
4ocean was born on a plastic-covered beach in Bali, Indonesia
4ocean founders, Alex and Andrew, have been around the ocean their entire lives. They both grew up on the Florida coast, swimming, diving, fishing, and surfing. After becoming friends in college, they saved up their money for the surf trip of a lifetime to Bali. When they arrived, they found a beach that was completely covered in plastic, with trash-filled waves delivering more garbage with each break.
They asked a local why such a popular, and otherwise beautiful, shoreline wasn’t kept clean, and were told that the beaches had been cleaned just hours earlier. The trash they were wading through had only just washed ashore.
Their eyes were immediately opened to the magnitude of the ocean plastic crisis, and they vowed on the spot to try to do something about it.
The Original 4oceon Bracelet
Wearing the 4ocean Bracelet instantly identifies you as a member of the clean ocean movement and symbolizes your commitment to a plastic-free ocean.

Care Foundation would want to address grassroots issues contributing to increased number of children living in and on the street. The organization is intending to withdraw, prevent and protect these children from COVID-19 and other form of abuse, sensitize communities on providing care and support to vulnerable children, support identified vulnerable households with an income generating activity to reduce number of children going to the street trying to make ends meet, provide direct support to children identified in the street to stay in school, procure and distribute COVID-19 sanitary materials and distribute among parents and guardians of children identified in the street, sensitize the communities on COVID-19 and preventive measures, provide ongoing psycho social support services to children to heal them from psychological trauma and rehabilitate them through learning for life sessions. The program will strengthen strategies and scale up withdraw of children from the street and prevent those on the verge of being in the street through different interventions at Boma point and other trading centres within the district where children work in the street. The approach will strengthen systems for protecting boys and girls from COVID-19 and different form of abuse, exploitation and violation. The project will work in collaboration with community development structures, key district stakeholders and other partners of the same interest for experience sharing and capacity Building

My goal as a conflict resolution professional and educator is to create constructive changes in the approach to chaos and to help evolve conflict experiences into ones that bring peace and meaning in a collaborative manner. This requires evolving and essentially transforming mindsets, conditionings, beliefs and emotions. Transformative mediation facilitates the changing of perspectives and assumptions from which to view conflicts in one’s life and in the world. I also believe in my own vulnerable sharing because it is critical to lead by example in a field such as conflict resolution, where with its vast difficulties and intensities, it is vital to illustrate the type of conduct that produces true resolution and healing especially to young people. Conflict resolution as an educational discipline has the potential to create self aware and interpersonally sensitive people who can contribute substantially towards society. I also use evolutionary astrology to understand the nature of and patterns in the psyche, helping one become aligned with His/Her correct karma and destiny and ensuring that His/Her unique gifts and lessons manifest in a positive and abundant way. Having a strong Libran emphasis, I have always been drawn to understanding the dynamics that bring peace and harmony to relationship conflicts and difficult, entangled situations. I have also been greatly influenced by the spiritual teachings of Eckhart Tolle, Don Miguel Ruiz and A Course in Miracles (ACIM).

To help heal the world by being a person that is always learning and growing from everything and anything. Being the light that shines ever so bright. Treat others with the way I want to be treated. Being loving, kind, and compassionate to every person from all walks of life and cultivating a domino effect. Cultivation of a small dot and small hole within the thinking of one person will create a ripple effect in others. This one step is all the is needed to transform the world. All it takes is one person having a dream and taking one step and then the next step to bring the dream into reality.To speak/teach all over the world about: Mindful Sensorium. Integration of the approach of occupational therapy skills learnings, teachings to combine with promoting consciousness via functional skills and activities to help cultivate present moment awareness.

If I could change the world I would start with enforcing: Truth, Equality, Opportunity, Fairness and Justice Act for all. This I believe would change the mindsets and heart of man and create fair opportunities for the underprivileged and those that are discriminated against. If we as a nation could truly live and stand one nation under GOD, live by HIS Golden Rules and have HIS attributes embedded within our hearts, this the world would most certainly be a better place for us all. We must go back to respecting ourselves, the environment and loving one another regardless of race or color of our skin. If everyone in the world could take on this mindset I believe it would create a peace of mind for the under priviledge families and for those that have been discriminated against. If I could change the world I say again, it would be enforcing Truth, Equality, Opportunity, Fairness and Justice Act. Executing this Act of law I believe will change and create more positive mindsets of the people. This I truly believe would bringsforth positive mindsets and happy people that have been given the opportunity to provide for their household in the right manner. This is what I would change...

Children living in and on the Street face different form of abuse as they are fighting for survival, most of these children are vulnerable who are subjected to hazardous and unhygienic condition putting them at risk of infections, drug and substance abuse and introduced to crime. A lot of children have been seen working and begging in the streets of many cities in Malawi and most of them are out of school with undecided future. These children are mostly seen selling commodities like clothes, plastic bags and agricultural products in order to get money to meet their needs. It is of major concern to observe how these children live, some live under bridges, unfinished houses and vacant places.
Major issues forcing these children in the streets includes domestic, economic and social disruption which include poverty, breakdown of families sexual, physical or emotional abuse, domestic violence mental health problems, substance abuse, sexual orientation or gender identical issue. Some children may end in streets due to cultural and religious factors for example girls are forced to engage themselves in sexual activities for the benefit of families economically
With great concern, these children are very at risk of COVID-19 as they are vulnerable due to unfavorable conditions being exposed every day, they are working and begging in the street, it should be noted that most of these children interact with a lot of people each day who may be a great threat to the society if some of them can be infected with COVID-19, culturally children are very close to their grandparents as most of them lost their parents due to HIV/AIDS. If these children can catch the virus may destroy the whole community within a short period of time as they are too mobile moving from one point to another trying to make ends meet. Old people are very at risk of COVID-19 due to weak immune system hence the need to prevent the spread of the virus among children who may easily transmit the virus to them.
With this background, Care foundation has introduced a "HELP THE CHILD CAMPAIGN" for the period of three months (90 days) to mobilize resources to sustain the implementation of program activities, so far among others the organization has planned to conduct fundraising dinners, coffee morning in churches, making and selling of face masks, buying and selling items to well wishers to support a child and will have a farm for producing maize and sell to community members. We therefore seeking funding opportunities from well wishers across the world of good will to support the initiate. Money raised will provide direct support to vulnerable children to stay in school, facilitate withdraw of children from different form of abuse (child labour, child trafficking, child prostitution, child labour, child marriages and those living in and on the street) the initiate will also empower vulnerable household economically through small scale businesses for improved household income levels while promoting community participation in providing care and support to children. Care Foundation programs will focus on school support, community empowerment and child rehabilitation as major programs implemented which will enhance life and vocational skills development, economic empowerment, school support (direct support, bursary, advocacy and capacity building, repatriation, psycho social support services.

David Gumble Project Sales Leader One World Blue Media

David Gumble
Prayer is very powerful. If not for prayer, I would not be where I am today.
David Gumble, of the One World Blue Network, is no stranger to adversity though he refuses ever to be defined by it. One minute before Thanksgiving, on November 25, 1992, David’s soul entered this world. He was premature and born via a turbulent Caesarean Section that David suspects is the cause of him living with Cerebral Palsy. This condition necessitates that David utilizes a wheelchair for his daily mobility. He was born as well with a visual impairment that was not discovered until well into his first year of life. It required surgery to ensure that whatever eyesight he did have would be saved.
Everything in our lives happens for a reason.
David was born with Epilepsy and suffered continuously throughout childhood with intense seizures. By the age of 5, his hip was routinely jolted from its socket, and he was in excruciating pain, prompting the doctors to recommend surgery.
I lied on the ground, and I prayed with all the strength I could muster. I prayed like my life depended on it, because it really did. The pain stopped, and when I returned to the doctors, they were shocked to see that my problem had corrected itself. This was my first very revelatory encounter with God, and showed me the power of prayer and connecting to the Almighty.
By the age of 9, David's parents had split up, and six months from that point, the house that he and his mother called home burned entirely to the ground. Miraculously, no one was home, but the house and all therein was destroyed.
"As my mother cried, I had a strong realization that I could be very thankful that we were all still here and safe, and that all we had truly lost was just stuff. Additionally, the house was not adequate for us, and I looked forward to the new possibilities with a positive resolve.."
This positive resolve has continuously lifted David through odds that the vast majority of us would find insurmountable. At the age of 10, David underwent surgery to lengthen the tendons in his legs. This operation was undertaken with the intention that David would be able to walk from its success. He remembers waking up in agonizing pain mid-operation, as they had not administered the proper amount of anesthesia. The surgery was not completed, and David was stitched up as quickly and safely as possible and underwent many months of physical therapy.
"I moved toward a mindset of acceptance and gratitude for what I did have. I said to myself, "Hey, I've got all my limbs; I don't need to walk; it could be even worse." Rather than a life of endless surgeries and their possible complications, I chose to live a life of acceptance of my circumstances and the pursuit of happiness. I look for no pity; I am a human being like anyone else and deserve no pity or special treatment. I let my life experiences be my teacher and though there has been immense pain, I strive to find meaning and joy in all things."
With all that David had endured up to this point, he vividly remembers that around the age of 12 or 13, he decided that he had to pave his way. He became grounded in his principals and morals and forged his way forward, refusing to ever succumb to a victim mentality.
I was blessed with strength and an extraordinary family.
Throughout high school, David was regarded by the administration as basically an incapable person; he was considered someone who was slow, stupid, or too disabled to pursue his dreams. David faced this all with tremendous strength, courage, and determination to never allow the outside world to define him and his abilities.
In high school, I really followed my own way. I was never one to follow trends and didn’t care to be socially accepted as a measuring stick of my worth and success. I just put my head down and focused on getting through. Though I had much opposition at every turn, most rigorously from the school itself, I was blessed with a mentor and advocate in my U.S. History teacher Brian Minich. Brian believed in me like I did myself and encouraged that inner resolve in me.
David developed an intense passion for music during this time; listening to music became his escape from quite a hostile world. He was never one to delve into drugs and alcohol. He was interested in really feeling alive. Music gave him life and joy. His interest in pursuing music in some capacity was met dismissively in his sophomore year of high school, but it was a dream on which he would never give up.
In 2010, David was a senior in high school and on the verge of graduating, when he developed a cyst the size of a softball underneath his thigh. He was determined to graduate but was bedridden in a hospital. He finished his requirements from that hospital bed, and with the help and advocacy of Mr. Minich, they pushed the school to allow him to graduate on time.
The following three years would be another very trying time for me. It took that long to heal from the cyst, diagnose the underlying issue, and successfully treat it. It was determined that I had inverse acne, a skin irritation that develops underneath the skin, not on the surface. For one of those years, I was completely bedridden. My family took total care of me, and I truly did not leave the bed for anything. My inner will was never crushed, but it was certainly tried. Prayer is truly powerful.
In 2015, David remembered another direct encounter with the Divine. Still deeply enamored with music, David made and still maintains a close personal friendship with a band called, “The Chesapeake Sons,” whom he has seen at least 40 or 50 times to date. While attending a show and caught up in the ecstasy of the music, he heard his soul speaking to him.
I had been pondering the idea of pursuing music production and recording but struggled with hesitation and some self-doubt. Lost in the music that night in 2015, it was like angels came to me and said, “David, go do this, you can do this; you are ready.” It was an incredibly powerful evening, and the following year I enrolled in the Sheffield Institute for the Recording Arts in Phoenix, Maryland.
David's experience in college was the complete opposite of his high school years. He was immersed in learning what he loved, and all in a nurturing environment with supportive teachers and peers.
David graduated in 2017, with a degree in audio engineering, a dream he actualized against all the odds.
David has never let others define him or limit his abilities, and despite all he’s been through he’s never allowed himself to fall into despair. David is truly an ambassador of goodness, kindness, strength, and conviction.
In late 2019, he joined the One World Blue Network at https://www.blupela.com as a Project Sales Leader. The world is a brighter place because of David Gumble’s refusal to let the world define him, and his insistence that it becomes the world it was created to be.

The Holy Tomb of King David

Kever Dovid HaMelech
Click here to Donate
PSALMS OF DAVID ARE RECITED 24 Hours a Day 7 Days a Week
Dear Friend!
Mosdos Kever Dovid HaMelech (The King David’s Tomb Institutions) is a new nonprofit organization dedicated to raising awareness about this holy site and to following in the footsteps of Dovid HaMelech by engaging in prayer and Torah learning to help the Jewish people and bring the final Geula closer.
Where is King David’s Tomb?
King David’s Tomb is a site on Mount Zion, by the Old City of Jerusalem, considered to be the burial place of the biblical king. It is a symbol of prayer and yearning that has become somewhat neglected by visitors since 1967 when Jews were once again able to pray at the Kotel - the Western Wall. Also buried there are King Shlomo, King Chizkiyahu and other biblical kings, as recorded in the Navi (Books of Prophets).
Who was King David?
King David is a central figure of the biblical narrative, a former shepherd who became not only a king and great army general, but also wrote the book of Tehillim (Psalms), established Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel, and purchased the land on which his son built the first Beis HaMikdash (Temple). His name is synonymous with leadership and prayer, courage and conviction, piety and song.
The Importance of this Holy Site
The site of King David’s Tomb, also known as Zion, is the source of blessings and salvation for the Jewish people. “R’Levy says, “All the blessings and the comforts and the favors that Hashem gives to Yisroel, they all come from Zion.” Children – as it says, “May Hashem bless you from Zion…and live to see your children’s children.” (Tehillim 128:5-6). Life – as it says, “Like the dew … that falls upon the mountains of Zion. There the LORD ordained blessing, everlasting life.” (Tehillim 133:3). Livelihood – as it says, “For Hashem has chosen Zion … I will amply bless its store of food, give its needy their fill of bread.” (Tehillim 132:13-15). Blessing – as it says, “May Hashem bless you from Zion.” (Tehillim 128:5). Salvation – as it says, “O that the deliverance of Israel might come from Zion!” (Tehillim 14:7). Torah – as it says, “For the Torah shall come forth from Zion.” (Isaiah 2:3). - Vayikrah Rabbah
שהיה בעת מלוך מלך בישראל שהיו נותנים מס למלך, והיו המלכים מגנים עליהם מכל צר ומשפיעים עליהם כל ההשפעות הטובות,
גם עתה שיתנו מס למלכים, שהם דוד המלך ושלמה המלך ע"ה שהם בבחינת "דוד מלך ישראל חי וקיים", מלכים חיים וקיימים,
ואמר שאת המס יתנו לציון דוד המלך ושלמה המלך ע"ה כל אחד אלפיים דאלער [2000 $], כדי לקיים "האלף לך שלמה" ועוד אלף לדוד המלך [בבחינת "אאלפך חכמה ואאלפך בינה"]
שזהו המס שנקצב לישועות למעלה מדרך הטבע. ומי שאין ביכולתו ליתן סכום זה בבת אחת יתנו בתשלומים [לשון קדשו מצורף למטה]
Our Mission
Our mission is to strengthen the Jewish presence at the historic site of King David’s Tomb while using the Psalms and teachings of Dovid HaMelech to strengthen Jewish identity. We aim to inspire others and through the merits of King David and King Solomon, his son, we should witness the redemption and the building of the third Beis HaMikdash (Temple).
Our Guiding Principle
Mosdos Dovid HaMelech was established in order to raise awareness to wake up Am Yisrael and connect them to the yearning for the Beis HaMikdash. “Rabbi Shimon ben Menasiyah said, “Yisroel will not see the signs of eternal redemption until they return and ask for three things: the Kingdom of Heaven, the Kingdom of the House of Dovid, the Beis Hamikdash.”” - Yalkut Shimoni
Our Activities
Mosdos Kever Dovid HaMelech has taken it upon ourselves that the site of King David’s Tomb should always be filled with prayer and Torah learning, a place where Jews can flock to connect to Hashem through prayer, Tehillim, introspection and inspiration, following in the footsteps if Dovid HaMelech. “King David would pray for all matters that the Jewish people need until the coming of the Messiah - for the sick to heal, for the healthy to not become ill, for their livelihood to be blessed and for all harsh decrees to be canceled. " - Rabbi Klonymous Kalman Epstein (Meor VaShemesh)
• Regular Prayers - At this holy site, we ensure that there are prayers three times a day, including Shabbos and yom tov.
• Refreshments and Meals - Mosdos Dovid HaMelech hosts a shalosh-seudas meal every Shabbos afternoon that is open to everyone. We have a Kiddush after davening on Shabbos and yom tov mornings with cakes, herring and drinks. Three times a year, on Shavuos, Purim and Hoshana Rabba, Mosdos Dovid HaMelech hosts a festive meal at Kever David HaMelech. We also offer refreshments for people who visit the site on Rosh Chodesh, late at night and after fast days.
• Prayer and Psalms - Tehillim (Psalms), daily prayers and Torah study take place at King David’s Tomb every day. Often, people approach us to pray on their behalf. To strengthen their prayers, they give tzedakah (charity) which we distribute to the poor and needy.
• Kollel Chatzot (The Midnight Gathering) - There is great spiritual power in the middle of the night. Scholars and rabbis meet at Kever Dovid HaMelech each night around midnight to study Torah and pray, thus bringing light into the world at the time of the greatest darkness.
• Torah Learning - Groups of people meet daily at Kever Dovid HaMelech to learn Torah. This strengthens the place because it is always filled with words of Torah, Tehillim and tefillos for Am Yisrael.
• Mishmeres Tehillim and the Holy Zohar - There are eight groups of people who recite Tehillim (Psalms) in rotation at Kever Dovid HaMelech every day, thus ensuring that there is never a moment where these holy prayers, written by King David himself, are silent at this site. Every three hours the groups rotate. At present, due to inadequate funding, the groups number just three people each. With your help we can appoint more people to each group and ensure that there is never a pause in the prayers.
• Future Plans – These include regular transportation to the site of King David’s Tomb and increasing the accessibility to the Tomb itself to enable more people to visit this holy site.

Reggie Watkins
Wheeling’s Jazz Giant: Leon “Chu” Berry
by Reggie Watkins
Wheeling has a reputation for being a country music hub. So much so that along the way the city earned the nickname “Little Nashville.” I grew up two doors down from Wheeling’s country music legends Doc and Chickie Williams. I have many fond memories of visiting their house where they often hosted visiting musicians to jam, make recordings, and feast on Chickie’s delicious food. The Capitol Music Hall was frequented by me and the couple’s grandson and my childhood buddy Andy McKenzie. There we witnessed the thriving music scene first hand. Many years later while driving in Wheeling I was pleased to see the stretch of I-70 in Elm Grove named after the royal music couple in tribute to them and their contributions. As a jazz musician and enthusiast I thought to myself, “does Wheeling have any jazz musicians from our past that deserve to be celebrated and remembered in this way?” As it turned out, we definitely do!
One of the most important and outstanding tenor saxophonists of the swing era of jazz music was Wheeling’s own Leon “Chu” Berry. Berry took up the saxophone at a young age after being inspired by the great tenor man Coleman Hawkins. Berry went on to model his own playing after Hawkins. Hawkins would later be quoted as saying “Chu was about the best.” Consider also that alto saxophonist Charlie “Bird” Parker, father of 20th century modern jazz, named his first child Leon in tribute to Berry who was 14 years his senior. Bebop pioneers like Charlie Parker and his pal trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie would most certainly have heard Berry up close and personal in the early 1940s at the now legendary Monday night jam sessions at Minton’s Playhouse in New York City which led to the development of bebop.
Chu Berry
A graduate of Lincoln High School, Berry made his mark and name as a top-tier tenor player and featured soloist with the cream of the crop of the 1930s and 1940s big bands. He was featured in the bands alongside many legendary jazz luminaries such as Benny Carter, Fletcher Henderson, Mildred Bailey, Teddy Wilson, Billie Holiday, Lionel Hampton, and Cab Calloway. Berry, like the other standout tenor players of the era, was a masterful ballad interpreter, but he was also known for his virtuosic technique and ability to play at fast tempos. Berry also made important contributions to the genre as a composer; most notable with the 1936 hit song Christopher Columbus which he wrote for the Fletcher Henderson Orchestra and was the band’s last major hit. The riffs and themes of the song were later used in the Benny Goodman showstopper Sing Sing Sing.
So why then isn’t Leon “Chu” Berry” a household name along with the other tenor sax giants of the era like Ben Webster, Lester Young, and Coleman Hawkins? Sadly the answer is that while touring with Cab Calloway’s band he was fatally injured in a car crash in Conneaut, Ohio. He passed away on Oct. 27, 1941 from injuries sustained in the accident. Berry and Calloway were close friends and Berry was considered the greatest musician in his orchestra. According to a 1941 article published in the Afro-American (Baltimore), “Cab received news of Berry’s death while playing before 5,000 people in Toronto, Canada, where the band was en route when the accident occurred. He worked four hours without letting the band know of Chu’s death. He stopped the band twenty minutes before the close of the engagement and made the announcement, after which the band played God Save the King.” Calloway flew to Wheeling from Rochester, NY for the funeral where over a thousand people were in attendance.
Page 4 of the Wheeling Intelligencer.(published in Wheeling, West Virginia on Friday, October 31st, 1941)
What would have been in store for Berry and his music if it were not for his untimely death? Would he have ascended to the pinnacle of jazz royalty next to his contemporaries Coleman Hawkins and Lester Young? Or given his connection and influence on the early development of bebop, might he have been even further celebrated as a creator of Bebop along with Gillespie and Parker? One can only wonder. What we do know is that his contributions to the music are vast and although we mourn his untimely departure, we can appreciate and experience the many recordings he left for the world. Lucky for us, Berry was incredibly active in the recording studio for the majority of his career and as a result, his music will endure forever.
I truly hope that music lovers in the Ohio Valley and throughout the world will discover or re-discover the many musical masterpieces left to the world by Wheeling’s own Leon “Chu” Berry. Who knows, maybe one day a statue of the hometown saxophone legend might be erected here, like the Charlie “Bird” Parker memorial statue in Kansas City, as a tribute to one of the greatest of all time.

South America

Culture in Esmeraldas

Bernard Asper
Marronage—the flight of enslaved men and women was a common occurrence in the Americas and Caribbean from the sixteenth through the nineteenth centuries. Originally believed to be of Spanish origin (cimarrón; French marron), the term "maroon" is now thought to derive from a Hispaniola Taino root meaning "fugitive," which combined with the Spanish cimá (mountaintop). The term was originally applied to livestock in the Hispaniola hills and to fugitive Amerindian slaves.
Known variously as quilombos (Jaga ki-lombo, "war camp"), mocambos (Mbundu mu-kambo, "hideout"), and palenques (palisades or stockades), Maroon settlements developed from the southern United States to South America.
Until a few decades ago, the area around Esmeraldas Ecuador was accessible only by sea. The only inhabitants for centuries were native people of the Tumaco and La Tolita cultures that spread over the modern borders of Colombia and northern Ecuador.
Maroons developed a variety of military, social, and political relations with Amerindians as allies, domestic slaves, spouses, and advisers of chiefs. When slaves were being brought to the New World to work the growing sugar plantations, the mines, and other jobs, some of them escaped shipwrecks and swam ashore on the Esmeraldas coast. They overcame, first by violence, then by reproducing, the local cultures, and created in northern Ecuador the Republic of Esmeraldas which became a haven for escaping slaves from other Ecuadorian provinces.
Esmeraldas took its name from Spanish colonizers, who hoped to find a rich source of emeralds, but also for the lush tropical vegetation of the area. Runaway slaves from Brazil and surrounding settlements and plantations joined with the communities and together these groups held off the Spanish colonial powers for many years. The intense mixing and merging of cultures from different sides of the globe is evident in the music of the region today.
The base of the music is made up of rhythmic drumming and the warm and distinctive marimba, a wooden xylophone, accompanied by singers and a traditional dance. In Esmeraldas and the Pacific Coast of Colombia a branch of the genre, marimba salsera, has more contemporary influences of the salsa culture popular in most parts of Ecuador and throughout Latin America. The esmeraldeños celebrate this cultural and musical legacy in various festivals and performances such as the Festival Internacional de Danza y Musica Afro, and music accompanies and is part of different religious practices.
Forms of entertainment mainly got influenced by West Africa. The main thing that they used for their daily entertainment were dancing and music. Dancing and music were very traditional, but music has changed to story-telling. The most popular dance in Esmeralda is called the Currulao otherwise known as the Marimba dance, this dance was played to a specific song. A marimba is an instrument that was made out of wood and was played using metal mallets.
The inhabitants wore informal and formal clothing. Informal clothing included hats. ponchos, and shirts that had very specific details. In some villages in Esmeralda, females would wear very vibrant colored skirts. They wear sombreros even when they aren't farming. Normally sombreros were used during agriculture. Their traditional clothing you can see being worn for their shows consisting of dancing and music. When women dance, they normally wear those big full skirts with embroidery and vibrant colors.
Isolated for so many years, the black and indigenous cultures interwove and created a culture that remains vibrant today. With the coming of roads, the development of the port, and the establishment of Esmeraldas as the site of Ecuador's largest oil refinery for the Trans-Ecuador pipeline bringing oil from the Amazon, the city of Esmeraldas has become a large commercial and tourism center. At the same time, ecologically concerned citizens have created wildlife reserves and mangrove conservation groups.

Torres Strait Islander Peoples

Bernard Asper
Warul Kawa (Deliverance Island), Torres Strait Islands, Queensland, Australia.
There are an estimated 274 small islands in Torres Strait, which separates Australia's Cape York Peninsula from Papua New Guinea.
The islands and their waters and reefs are home to many rare and unique species.
Torres Strait is named after a Spanish captain, Torres, who sailed through the strait in 1606 on his way to the Philippines. In the first half of the 19th century, trader ships regularly sailed up Australia's east coast and through the Torres Strait on their way to ports in India and Asia.
In the 1850s western traders discovered the seas close to the Great Barrier Reef and Torres Straight were rich in the much-sought after sea animal bêche-de-mer (Sea cucumber).
By the 1870s, there was a rush on pearls in the waters around the islands and before long the Colonial Secretary in Britain decided to annex the profitable territory to the then colony of Queensland.
In the Torres Strait, families travel from island to island by small boats
The Torres Strait Islander peoples are of Melanesian descent, as are the people of Papua New Guinea, with whom they share similar cultural traits and customs. These islands can be divided into five cultural groups, which are represented by the white five-pointed star on the Torres Strait Islander flag: the Eastern (Meriam), Top Western (Guda Maluilgal), Near Western (Maluilgal), Central (Kulkalgal), and Inner Islands (Kaiwalagal). The flag's green, black, and blue stripes represent land, people and sea.
Designed by the late Bernard Namok of Thursday Island, the flag symbolizes the unity and identity of Torres Strait Islanders.
Like the Aboriginal flag, the Torres Strait Islands flag is recognized as an official "Flag of Australia" under the Flags Act 1953.
The Torres Strait Islander peoples speak two distinct languages. The traditional language spoken in the Eastern Islands is Meriam Mir, and in the Western, Central, and Inner Islands the language spoken is Kala Lagaw Ya or Kala Kawa Ya, which are dialects of the same language. Since European colonization of Australia, the Torres Strait Creole (Kriol) language has developed as a mixture of Standard Australian English and traditional languages. The Torres Strait Islander peoples use Creole to communicate with each other and with non-islanders.
The spirituality and customs of the Torres Strait Islander peoples reflect their dependence on the natural world of their home islands and the surrounding waterways. Torres Strait Islander culture and spirituality are closely linked to the stars and the stories of Tagai, a great fisherman and spirit being who created the world in their traditional religion before Christianity was introduced to the islands by missionaries, created the world. Tagai is represented by a constellation of stars in the southern sky. Torres Strait Islander law, customs, and practices are shaped by the Tagai stories. The Torres Strait Islander peoples’ deep knowledge of the stars and sea provide them with valuable information regarding changes in the seasons, when to plant gardens and hunt for turtles or the manatee-like dugong, and how to circumnavigate the seas.
