QUEENING

May 4, 2016

I VISITED Mozambique in August 2014 on a church retreat that changed my life. On the last of the 21-day stay the group who had visited Iris Ministry in Zimpeto were given precious cloth as gifts. The cloth which I’m wearing on my head is called a Kapulana. In Mozambique it’s the women’s Sunday Best. You are not fully dressed until you throw it on. Being given such a beautifying part of their culture was more than just an honour. I wear it on my head because I believe there is a beauty in African head gear that makes wearing it make you feel like a queen, to me it is a reminder of the richness and royalty of the African soil.
