This is an assignment I did for a class. I know it isn't the most comprehensive and it is totally done from an outsider's perspective. Because of time constraints, I had to leave out a lot of information. Please just view this as a short introduction. I apologize for anything that I may have misinterpreted. The information was based upon information from Every Culture dot com, and two books by the Center for Refugee Resources: The Somalians, & Muslim Refugees. Many of the pictures were from random searches online and for example the United Nation's website. Additionally, again because I wanted to keep this under 10 minutes the end credits were way too short and I was not able to thank Rick Davies whose website was the one of the first places I found photos of Mogadishu and a history of the...

Somalia is The Land of Punt:Land of Myrrh and Frankincense. Ancestral HomeLand of The Pharaohs . History : « Again the representations of the early Puntites, or Somali people, on the Egyptian monuments, show striking resemblances to the Egyptians themselves. » By Brian Brown New York: Brentano's In "The Making of Egypt" (1939). Petrie states that the Land of Punt was "sacred to the Egyptians as the source of their race" : ""The Egyptians sometimes called Punt land Ta-Netjeru, meaning "Land of the Gods," and considered it their place of origin ." (Richard Pankhurst, The Ethiopian Borderlands:1997) "The King Sahure (2458-2446 B.C.) from this Egyptian Old Kingdom, Dynasty V (2498-2491 B.C.) made a trade expedition to the Land of Punt .

Nawa first stepped into a classroom at age 16, but caught up quickly. Now 20, she is getting ready for university and setting an example for other refugees. “It’s unbelievable how much I learnt in four years,” says Nawa, now 20. “What drives me is that I’m the only person in my family to have access to education and to have gotten this far. I also want to be an example to other women who are afraid to achieve the things they want.” A strong advocate of women’s rights, she is happy to see more girls than boys in Fugee School now – a reversal of the trend when she first started in 2013. She’s observed that girls do better in class as they choose to study, unlike boys, who are prioritized for school in some cultures and often take it for granted.

Hamda Yusuf, a spoken word poet and a student at University of Washington, grew up listening to stories from her parents who saw stories as a means for preserving their Somali culture. This led her to discover spoken word poetry and her voice. "Just another towlhead" is the title of one of her poems. Hamda Yusuf is currently living in Seattle but was born in Mombasa, Kenya and grew up in Somalia and the Netherlands. Her love of literature and all things poetry began with her move to the US at the age of 10 where she secretly read the poetry of Rumi and Walt Whitman on top of her English Second Language work in order to accelerate her English lessons. Hailing from Somalia, a country known as a "nation of poets", she uses her poetry as a means to better connect to the ancient traditions of...

The San Diego neighborhood of City Heights has been nicknamed "the refugee capital of America." Last year, local resettlement workers assisted more than 5,000 new arrivals to San Diego; and most of them ended up in the neighborhood. Among the many things these newcomers have had to adjust is their diet. From our Fronteras Desk, Ruxandra Guidi introduces us to a refugee family that is finding a way to navigate between food traditions, good health, and an American lifestyle.
The Somali Nomadic lifestyle is what defines the Somali culture. It is from these dry plateaus, valleys and watering holes from which all Somali traditions spring, forming the bedrock of the Somali society and a rich cultural heritage handed down to generations of camel herders and pastoralists. The traditional dances and weddings in Miyi form the basis of almost all Somali poetry and music. And to understand the meaning and origins of Somali poetry, music and literature, one must be fairly informed about the pastoral lifestyle, for without it he looses majority of the meaning, metaphors, allusions and insinuations imbedded within them. The austerities of life in Miyi are simply remarkable. Life here fundamentally depends on needs rather than wants and the western life of hedonism and e...
