Arawak

Language: Arawak, also known as Lokono, is an Arawakan5 language of South America. It is an agglutinating6 language with SVO7 word order. Some indigenous Caribbean tribes who once spoke related Arawakan languages, such as the Tainos8 of Haiti and the Bahamas and the "Island Caribs"9 of Dominica, are also sometimes referred to as Arawaks, but their languages were distinct. The Lokono Arawak language is sometimes called "True Arawak" or "Arawak proper" to distinguish it from other languages of the Arawakan language family, like Taino and Kalhipona. Lokono Arawak is spoken by about 2500 people in Suriname, Guyana, French Guiana, and Venezuela, and was once spoken on neighboring Caribbean islands like Barbados as well.

 

Names: Arawak is a tribal name from their own language referring to their main crop food, the cassava root (also known as manioc.) The Arawaks also call themselves Lokono, which means "the people," and sometimes refer to the Arawak language as Lokono Dian, "the people's speech." Alternate spellings of these names include Arawák, Arahuaco, Aruak, Arowak, Arawac, Araguaco, Aruaqui, Arwuak, Arrowukas, Arahuacos, Locono, and Luccumi.

Native American Facts For Kids was written for young people learning about the Arawaks for school or home-schooling reports. We encourage students and teachers to visit our main Arawak6 website for more in-depth information about the tribe, but here are our answers to the questions we are most often asked by children, with Arawak pictures and links we believe are suitable for all ages.

 

 

    Arawak Tribe

How do you pronounce the word "Arawak"? What does it mean?
Arawak is pronounced "air-a-wack." Sometimes you will see it spelled ArawacArahuaco, or Aruak instead. This is their tribal name for themselves and it comes from the name of their main crop, the manioc or cassava root. Some Arawak people call themselves Lokono instead, which means "the people."

Where do the Arawaks live?
The Arawaks are original people of northern South America and the Caribbean Islands. They particularly live in Guyana, French Guiana, and Suriname, the island of Trinidad, and coastal areas of northern Venezuela. Here is a 
map7 showing some of the areas where Arawak and Carib people are still living today.

Are the Taino and Guajiro people the same as the Arawaks?
Not exactly. They are kinfolk, speak related languages, and share many cultural similarities. All three of these peoples are commonly referred to as "Arawakan" cultures. But they have also always been politically and ethnically distinct from each other. The situation is similar to French, Spanish, and Italian people in Europe. They are similar but not identical. The Tainos were native people of Puerto Rico, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, and Cuba, and some of their descendants still live in those areas today. The Guajiros, also known as the Wayuu, are native people of Venezuela and Colombia. Most of the cultural information on this page is generally true of all three of these civilizations.

What language do the Arawaks speak?
Many of them speak their native Arawak language, also known as Lokono. Many Arawak people are also bilingual in Spanish, English, French, or even Dutch, depending on which country their community is located in. If you'd like to learn a few Arawak words, here is a 
Lokono picture dictionary8 you can look at.

How was the Arawak Indian nation organized?
The Arawak nation never had a centralized government. Each Arawak community was ruled by a local leader, known as a cacique or chief. The cacique was usually a son or nephew of the previous ruler, but in some communities the new cacique would be chosen by religious leaders.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

African Alphabet 


 

Parts of Speech

In English grammar, the eight major parts of speech are noun, pronoun, adjective, verb, adverb, preposition, conjunction, and interjection.

 

In Bahamian  (grammar), Da (the) eight major parts of (speech) are.. (noun),... (pronoun), ...(adjective), ...(verb), ...(adverb),... (preposition), ...(conjunction), and ...(interjection).

 

Pronouns

Pronouns are words that replace nouns: I, me, she, we, they, who, that, yours, his, her, etc.

 

Pronouns need antecedents. That means that the thing (or person, or place) that the pronoun refers to needs to have been mentioned already by name somewhere earlier in the sentence or paragraph. If it’s not clear which thing the pronoun refers to, the reader can get quite confused.

 

I swam in the ocean. You swam in the ocean. He swam in the ocean. She swam in the ocean. It swam in the ocean.

 

Adjectives16

Adjectives are descriptive words that add detail to a sentence. They can give important or necessary information (e.g., Please hand me the blue paper), or they can just make the sentence more interesting (e.g. A frigid wind blew around the icy town). Adjectives describe nouns. Please sew the red dress. The weather is hot and humid . The stuffed toy is fuzzy and round .

 

Verbs

Verbs are action words: that’s a rather simplified explanation, but it’s the clearest one. Verbs tell you what the subject of the sentence is up to.

 

He ran into the wall. She buys new shoes. The cat licks its fur.

 

Prepositions

Prepositions are little words that tell where or when (among other things) something is. The monkey is on his back. The glue is behind the board. The dreamcatcher is above the bed.

 

Conjunctions

Conjunctions are words like and, but, and or that connect concepts, clauses, or parts of sentences.

 

I wanted to meet her there on time, but I got stuck in traffic. You can’t wear socks and sandals.

 

Interjections

Interjections are words like wow and yay. They’re sounds we make to convey extreme emotion or to create emphasis when we’re talking, sometimes when we can’t think of a good way to express ourselves. The problem with interjections is that they require a great deal of context to be understood. For instance, hey can mean hello, or that’s great, or stop doing that. Hey! How’s it going? Wow! Those fireworks are impressive. Yay! I passed calculus!

 

Verb Tenses

Verbs come in past, present, and future tenses. The past is used to describe things that have already happened (e.g., earlier in the day, yesterday, last week, three years ago). The present tense is used to describe things that are happening right now, or things that are continuous. The future tense describes things that have yet to happen (e.g., later, tomorrow, next week, next year, three years from now).

 

Past tense I lived here when I was ten. Present tense I live here now. Future tense I will live there when I am retired.

 

Subject-Verb Agreement

Singular subjects take singular verbs and plural subjects take plural verbs.

 

(In this example, the subject is in bold and the verbs are italicized.)

 

My brother is a doctor. My parents are yoga teachers.

 

Pronoun-Antecedent Agreement

When a pronoun replaces a noun, the noun is called an antecedent. On Michael’s first day of work, he was a little nervous. Michael is the antecedent and he is the pronoun.

 

The antecedent doesn’t have to go before the pronoun, but in longer sentences it can be confusing to introduce the pronoun before the antecedent. On his first day of work, Michael was a little nervous.

 

Subjunctive Mood

The subjunctive is a form verbs can take to express conditions that are hypothetical or not true. It’s not a verb tense. The subjunctive form usually uses the third-person form of the verb with the s dropped. When using the verb to be in the subjunctive, the present tense is be and the past tense is were.

 

The subjunctive is used with certain expressions that imply a good or bad quality or an imperative. Often, the subjunctive verb is preceded by the word that (as in the phrases it is best that, and it is essential that).

 

The subjunctive mood17 can express conditions that are not true:

 

If I were queen for a day, I would eat cake for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

 

It can express hypothetical situations:

 

If I were to design a dresser, it would be made of teak.

 

It can be used to express wishes:

 

I wish I were able to go on vacation with you.

 

It can express commands or demands:

 

The boss demanded that he complete the project or be fired.

 

It can express suggestions:

 

I suggest that she cut back on refined sugar to improve her health.

World Currency

While no one should ever dominate a position in life we still dont need to force retirement on the elderly the way technology has advanced we are capable of living more satisfying lives individually, socially, and spiritually!!! The Leadership styles in Russia and Cuba may need Direct Communism as no Country should be forced to change to another Countries exact Leadership style but those who take on those positions in history have not even used those leadership styles to the true worth of those societies if you consider who truly benefited and kept it so they should control it when we must all be given the choice and ability to peacefully seek our goals while contributing to the Nation of our own choosing but if all the talent is in one location what happens to everybody else?  Capitalism, communism, socialism and  and a few other Economic ideas from the 197 Nations needs to be combined to create a true world currency that has all the Flags as its heart!!! If we gat 197 why 1 talking fa all!!!

Should the United Nations Adopt a strategy that incorporates a leadership style of Secretary Generals selected from the 195 member Nations that work together as a team for a fulltime job 9 to 5 year round with vacations which could realistically be coordinated! i believe we must shed the war like mentality and tactics and take Peace Measures!!!

There have been and will continue to be new diseases that are going to be naturally occuring or war induced we must listen to the authority that is trying to control the spread of the diseases before we have another mass loss of life. Every life is important young and old. I believe we must move to a more online business model in society and in education and personal training so please try Site Build It. https://buildit.sitesell.com/                   

 To limit the spread of this virus and similar viruses a comprehensive strategy that incorporates other interventions, such as the adherence to infection control measures (hand hygiene and cough etiquette), social distancing, isolation, vaccination, and treatment with antiviral medications, needs to be undertaken.

What is Rulership?a position in which one rules or has sovereignty over others!(*) What gives any the authority to decide for another? Should it be because they are the Strongest? Should it be because you are the smartest? Should it be because you are the most attractive? We all know those who love being the most evil!!! Each Individual is born as an Equal in many valued text across societies! I believe there is never one leader but a team and the team has only been as strong as its weakest link and i am certain it has been misidentified and corrupted and destroyed! With out the true values of Peace Love and Equality! We are all lost! Should One country rule the world? Ok so should one person and i mean 1 individual human-being run the world? I believe Docmocracy will only ever work as a direct domocracy and each person in each field has major contributions to the team that can help us realistiacally manage work and social life (Family, or the right to enjoy as a single person remember there are monks but God said Free will so it is on them to decide! I would say my peace to deter but i would never force and neither should anyone! A lot of Interfaith meetings should be conducted and it should not be held only by one religion each deserves a turn to speak and teach! No matter if they are in the minority!!! Jesus said "there are more paths to heaven than one book alone!". I believe Democracy will work best with Direct Democracy for all Nations and we must simply help those that cant learn and function at the same speed! As they are valuable as the mightiest! We should all take the mindset Jack of All trades Master of many crafts! If each Pillar is strong how long can the foundation last!!!

((*)Rulership: https://www.yourdictionary.com/rulership#:~:text=rulership-,rulership,or%20has%20sovereignty%20over%20others.)

If you have someone who is young, old, or has an existing illness or disease and you have to go out or collect supplies please disinfect yourself before getting into contact with them again! Change clothes if you have to and in extremes take a shower. 10 more years for an old wise person can be 100 more years for the youth

One possible step to limiting the spread of the virus may be to adopt a principle where shoes must be taken off at the front door. I say this because people spit and bleed on the ground, animals urinate, and defecate on the ground and hunt and kill, the transmission of bacteria, disease, worms may be carried into your house from your shoes so it may be a good idea to start keeping shoes for outdoors in a separate room especiall if you love the 5 second rule

Ministry of Health: NOVEL CORONAVIRUS (2019-nCoV) 



The Ministry of Health wishes to advise the public of the occurrence of a newly discovered

novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) which has been associated with an outbreak of pneumonia

in Wuhan City, capital of Hubei Province in China. On 31st December 2019, the China

Country Office of the World Health Organization (WHO) was informed of cases of

pneumonia of unknown cause, detected in Wuhan City. A novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

was identified as the causative virus by Chinese authorities on 7th January, 2020.

Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the


common cold to more severe diseases, such as, Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-

CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). These viruses are zoonotic,


meaning that they are transmitted between animals and people. A novel coronavirus

(nCoV) is a new strain which has not been previously identified in humans.

Cases have been reported in Wuhan City and provinces outside of Wuhan in China. Other

countries including Thailand, Japan, the Republic of Korea and the United States have now

reported cases. The latest reports indicate that there have been nearly 500 confirmed

cases with 17 deaths.

The Ministry of Health will continue to monitor the occurrence of this novel virus with

ongoing updates to the public.

Common signs of infection with this virus include:

• respiratory symptoms,

• fever,

• cough,

• shortness of breath and

• breathing difficulties.


In more severe cases, infection can cause:


• pneumonia,

• severe acute respiratory syndrome,

• kidney failure and

• even death.

Standard recommendations to prevent the spread of this infection include:

• regular proper hand washing,

• covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing,

• thoroughly cooking meat and eggs and

• avoiding close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as

coughing and sneezing.

The international medical community, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the

regional Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) are concerned that this new virus can

result in a pandemic (a worldwide occurrence of the virus) as occurred with SARS and H1N1

avian influenza. Should the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) become more efficient at

human-to-human transmission, the threat of a pandemic will increase dramatically. The

global nature of travel and trade could increase the likelihood of the risk of rapid

transmission around the world in a very short period of time.

Based on currently available information, however, WHO does not recommend any

restriction of travel or trade. Today, at the conclusion of the first meeting of the

International Health Regulations Emergency Committee the decision for declaration as a

Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) was deferred until a second

meeting scheduled for tomorrow. At this time, it is expected that additional information

from WHO experts on the ground in China would be considered.

Countries are encouraged to continue strengthening their preparedness for health

emergencies in line with the International Health Regulations (2005).

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health will continue to utilize the established interim guidelines

published by the WHO on how countries can prepare for this virus. This includes how to

monitor for sick people; test samples; treat patients; control infection in health centres;

maintain the right supplies; and communicate with the public about this novel coronavirus.

The Ministry will continue to build on its existing national plans which implemented to

address viruses, such as, SARS and Influenza H1N1 which occurred in a similar. Our aim as

always, is to limit the effect on the population and prevent social disruption as much as

possible.

The lack of diversity in our economy is embarrassing when you think of a Small island nation like Japan ranking #1

"Japan has become the prototypical example of a low-ubiquity, high-sophistication export economy"

"The country also has a wide variety of high value exports and trading partners, lowering the risk of a trade war or industry downturn crippling the country’s economy."

"An over-reliance on a single export can leave a country extremely vulnerable in the event of price volatility or geopolitical events."

Global Security 

The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) is one of the six principal organs of the United Nations (UN),[1] charged with the maintenance of international peace and security[2] as well as accepting new members to the United Nations[3] and approving any changes to its United Nations Charter.[4] Its powers include the establishment of peacekeeping operations, the establishment of international sanctions, and the authorization of military action through Security Council resolutions; it is the only UN body with the authority to issue binding resolutions to member states. The Security Council held its first session on 17 January 1946.


The United Nations Security Council is made up of 15 members. The Security council has 5 permanent members China, The United states, France, The United Kingdom, Russia; and 10 non permanent members.


These permanent members can veto any substantive Security Council resolution, including those on the admission of new member states or candidates for Secretary-General. The Security Council also has 10 non-permanent members, elected on a regional basis to serve two-year terms. The body's presidency rotates monthly among its members.


For the Sake of Global Security I feel it is necessary for the United Nations to include all 195 members of the united nations. The power in the hand of the 5 and even 15 will bias global decision making and allow for an unbalance of power in the world. Its a global society and the best form of a democratic society would be world inclusive. Thus the Security Council would be better served in the long run if we move towards the security council increasing its size to the full 195 members of the United Nations.

Freedom of Choice

From the High to the low we all have our own expectations and wants in Life that help us live in this social world one of the major problems is that our wants at times hinders or destroys another life or lives. No one should decide who someone should marry except the intending spouses allowing family members or people in position of authority will always only suit their own purpose creating an uncaring society of controlled slaves trapped in unwanted marriages to maintain the respect and power of people unworthy of making choices for a life long loving society. Should a teacher tell a janitor who to marry, should a principle tell the guidance counselor who to marry, should a President, King, or priest decide for you, in my opinion the answer will always and forever be NO.

[Valid RSS] World Report 2015: Syria Today's horrible murder should now demand that we put metal detectors in schools. An incident like this shows the lack of security for our children. Increased measures need to be taken to protect our children. The future of our nation depends on it.

The loss of life is always tragic, Joyelle MacIntosh Lost her life while simply driving her kids’ home, we have lost another mother as the death count currently at 134; continues to rise. What in this world is more important to a child than their mother? This is no average loss as she was a teacher. In times past a teacher was held in high esteem as teaching was and should always be regarded as one of the most honorable professions a person can choose. Teaching is a thankless profession with little pay and a true lack of appreciation. The loss of one of our educators, a person dedicated to instilling knowledge in the minds of our youth is a colossal blow to an already wounded nation.


Sincere Condolences go out to the families of the innocents lost in the Syria Bombings, May calmer heads prevail as we continue to learn how to live in Peace

Sincere condolences go out from the Bahamas to the families of those lost in the tragic attack on Paris

21st September 2014

International Day Of Peace

The International Day of Peace is observed worldwide every year on 21 September.  The General Assembly of the United Nations has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.

Peace is the absence of conflict.  When one is at peace, one is free from the fear of violence and hostility.  The very word connotes harmony and reconciliation.  Yet, neighbouring nations continue to war with each other.  Young, unarmed men continue to be shot dead guilty of the awful crime of blackness.  Even here at home, our tranquil waters belie the bloody conflicts that are waged in our streets.  Today as the world is at war, we are encouraged by our leaders to be peaceful and to temper our outrage at injustice and corruption.  We are implored to remain calm in the face of the rising cost of existence and an unstable economy in which a small minority continue to prosper. Yet, while we are urged to be peaceful, these leaders continue to make decisions, the consequence of which is inevitable revolution.  The question is will it be peaceful? What are your thoughts?

Women's Rights

A fundamental principle of the United Nations Charter is equal rights for men and women. It is increasingly recognized that meaningful development and lasting peace cannot be achieved without the elimination of discrimination against women.

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY


10th July 2014

 

41 years ago the Bahamas gained it’s independence and regardless of your political affiliation we all have reason to celebrate.  Being just 33 years young, I am 8 years shy of truly appreciating the significance of this day.

What I find remarkable about this day is that our independence was achieved without the firing of one bullet.  Despite the lack of bloodshed, there was an uprising.  What occurred en masse was the realization of competence of our people. We learnt diplomacy and proved with vigor that we had the ability to run our own affairs. For 41 blessed years through the ups and downs, we are still standing. From Pingdomite era To Hubiggity era we are still here. We have come a long way and still have much to be proud of. 

Yet, one cannot help but look at the state of our country and wonder whether we  have squandered that which was obtained on that fateful 10 July 1973.   The peaceful manner in which we obtained freedom stands in stark contrast to the blood that frequently flows in our country today. Have we governed ourselves with integrity?  Have fairness, equality and justice been our hallmarks?  Have we done a better job than our former colonial masters, or have we allowed an elite minority to emerge.  Have we shaken off the shackles?  Are our minds free?  I would like to hear from you.  What do you think we’ve done with independence for which stouthearted men and women agitated and achieved?
