    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.

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.

  • Somalia The Life Of Nomadic

    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...

Egyptian ships also reached the shores of the land of Punt on the Somali coast to procure highly valued cargoes of myrrh, ebony and animals, among other goods. " Text Reference: The UNESCO General History of Africa: Ancient Civilization of Africa, Vol, II, General History of Africa, G. Mokhtar, 1990, p 64-68 . The greek historian Diodorus of Sicily in his book "Universal history "said that in 6th century before-J-Christ , because of a political crisis in Egypt and the euro-asiatics's infiltrations in Egypt , more than 200 thousands of ancient-egyptians migrated in the south of the Nile by crossing Nubia-Ethiopia with their ships , in the direction of the ,North/East Africa (Now, Somalia ,Djibouti,Ethiopia ...).

Extract of the research : More recently, Tillmar et al. (2009) typed 147 males from Somalia for 12 Y-STR loci, and observed that 77% (113/147) had typical E1b1b1a1b haplotypes. This is currently the highest frequency of E1b1b1a1b found in any single sample population.Similarly, Hassan et al. (2008) in their study observed this to be the most common of the sub-clades of E-M78 found in Sudan, especially among the Beja, Masalit and Fur. The Beja, like Somalis and Oromos, speak an Afro-Asiatic language and live along the "corridor" from Egypt to the Horn of Africa.)"

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 her ancestors. Today she's a 19-year-old University of Washington sophomore pursuing a degree in international studies. Hamda's work has been featured at The Paramount Theatre, Fifth Avenue Theatre, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Brave New Voices International Youth Poetry Slam, and at various colleges and universities. Right now she is focusing much of her energy on her college studies, performing within their poetry collective Manic Mouth Congress. Hamda plans to pursue a career in the Department of State while cultivating her poetry in new forms. She is currently working on a book of poetry. This talk was given November 9, 2013 in Seattle at TEDxRainier, a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

http://www.tedxeuston.com Sada Mire is a Somalian archaeologist. She lived the first fifteen years of her life in Mogadishu, until 1991, when she settled in Sweden, as a result of the conflict in north-east Africa. She is founder and executive director of the Horn Heritage Organization. In the last five years, she and her team have made many archaeological discoveries, which feature in her numerous articles and chapters in international scientific publications. Sada believes that cultural heritage is a basic human need. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

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 extravagance does not fall within the purview of the Somali nomad. As soon as children reach six years of age, their set of responsibilities are laid out before them and, against the backdrop of parched fields and scarcity of water, they traipse the vast open country often parading herds of camels, sheep and goats. A boy at that tender age would be expected to learn tending to the camels whereas a girl would start by guarding the flock of sheep and goats in the nearby green pastures. The female nomads, alleviated from the arduous chores of disassembling huts during the dry seasons of Xagaa and Jiilaal to move to greener pastures, are now engaged in conversations and endless moments of merriment. There is a plenty supply of water and milk the two essential nutrients of the Somali nomads.
