Enduring Rhythms

Descriptive notes by Ken Moore
Almost five hundred years ago, Africans began their forced migration to the Americas. They were first transported to the Caribbean in 1502 and soon thereafter to Central and South America. In 1619, they arrived in the colony of Virginia. Traditional African musical practices were either fiercely suppressed or tightly controlled. Gradually, however, African-American sounds entered the musical mainstream, notably in popular and religious genres. This transformation of original African musical styles and instruments throughout the Americas continues today to influence musical practices worldwide. The essence of African music is rooted in the concept that simple rhythmic patterns played on rattles, drums, bells, horns, and other musical instruments simultaneously form a dense mixture of polyrhythmic impulses that fade in and out, constantly renewing and recombining as a kaleidoscope of sound textures. Handclapping and jingles worn on arms and legs or attached to clothing accentuate dance movements and add to this rhythmic complex of layered sound. The music invites the active participation of each member of the community, and distinctions between performer and observer become blurred as the infectious rhythms demand that the body react. Many Africanisms languages, funerary customs, and foodstuffs were brought to the Americas, but it is the African rhythms, created by musical instruments, that have enriched and enlivened the world's musical vocabulary.

called Maroons, mingled in mountain hideaways with indigenous Taino people Both peoples had much in common The fon and Kongo kingdoms of West and Central africa
- The Editor, The following excerpt was part of an article, which was originally published in the 1992 Festival of American Folklife catalogue; reprinted with permission from the Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage of the Smithsonian Institution. ( " Maroons: Rebel Slaves in the Americas" by Richard Price The man who was to become the first African-American maroon arrived within a decade of Columbus' landfall on the very first slave ship to reach the Americas. One of the last maroons to escape from slavery was still alive in Cuba only 15 years ago. The English word "maroon" derives from Spanish itself based on an Arawakan (Taino) Indian root originally referred to domestic cattle that had taken to the hills in Hispaniola, and soon after it was applied to American Indian slaves who had escaped from the Spaniards as well. By the end of the 1530s, the word had taken on strong connotations of being "fierce," "wild" and "unbroken," and was used primarily to refer to African-American runaways. The following excerpt was taken from the Exhibition "The Sacred Art of Vodou" hosted at the American Museum of Natural History from October 1998 until January 1999.

"Ethnicity" is sometimes used as a euphemism for "race", or as a synonym for minority group. While ethnicity and race are related concepts, the concept of ethnicity is rooted in the idea of societal groups, marked especially by shared nationality, tribal afilliation, religious faith, shared language, or cultural and traditional origins and backgrounds. Whereas race is rooted in the idea of biological classification of homo sapiens to subspecies according to morphological features such as skin color or facial characteristics.

The radio series Africa Untold is designed to provide a better understanding of the African continent and its people. The series is produced by African Studies in the Center For International Studies at Ohio University with funding from United States Department of Education. Africa Untold contains six 10-minute episodes: "Africa: The Beginning," "Religion," "Women and Children," "Politics and Economics," "Kinship," and "The African Man." News coverage of Africa often focuses on wars, health crises, environmental disasters, and military coups. This series gives a more complete picture of the continent, which has several climatic regions and is home to many nations, cultures, ethnicities, and languages. This Teacher's Guide is a resource with background information for each episode and a list of references that teachers and students can use to learn more about Africa.
Africa: The Beginning Africa. The name conjures up so many images. For some, it's adventure, safaris, jungle, desert, music, dance. For others it is war or famine. It may even be South Africa or Nelson Mandela or the motherland, the ancestral home of black peoples around the world. Yet for others it is the dark continent - the unknown. Obviously, none of these images by itself completely defines Africa. These incomplete images actually distort the continent.

End Product of One Team
Québec, Canada
Fon Mission Team Working Document:
Teams increase their effectiveness if they have the desired end in mind. The following paper is an example of the formulation of an End Product. This document then becomes a guide, along with church growth studies and evaluations, for regularly scheduled goal setting. This team is two years into their work among the Fon of Benin. This paper was written prior to their arrival in Benin.
End Product Discussions
This document is part of our continuing goal-setting and evaluation process. As we have begun to envision what God will do through us beyond the initial stages of language and culture learning, we have found it necessary to define more clearly the "end product" that we hope that God will produce through our work. This process will help us: (1) set intermediate goals that focus toward the realization of the "end product"; and (2) recognize when we have completed our work as church planters. These definitions shall not interfere with the right of the church in Benin to determine its own course. These goals, while extensive, represent certain theological and missiological fundamentals on the basis of which we must to work as faithful and effective servants of God.
Dealing with the Pagan Past
Because our evangelistic ministry will focus primarily toward those who practice the traditional religion (as opposed to some form of Christianity or Islam), the goals found here will affect almost every area of church life.

Tarzan, Indiana Jones and Conservation International's Global Greenwash Machine
By Aziz Choudry
Colin Powell says that its work is "amazing". In 2001, it received what the media dubbed the biggest ever grant to an environmental organization - US $261 million spread over 10 years. Its website proclaims: "A passionate few can make the difference in the world."
In interviews, its president, Russell Mittermeier, confesses to a lifelong Tarzan fixation. Its vice-chair is the actor who played Indiana Jones.
The organization is Conservation International (CI). Founded in 1987, headquartered in Washington, DC, its stated mission is "to conserve the Earth's living natural heritage, our global biodiversity, and to demonstrate that human societies are able to live harmoniously with nature." It operates in over thirty countries, in the Americas, Asia, Africa and the Pacific.
But like Harrison Ford, it does a lot of acting, applying copious layers of green make-up.

Johannesburg-Gipfel: Umweltabkommen vor WTO-Regeln
Sehr geehrter Herr Bundeskanzler, Sie selbst sprechen oft von der Notwendigkeit von "Leitplanken" für die Globalisierung. Wir bitten Sie deshalb, sich intensiv dafür einzusetzen, dass in Johannesburg beschlossen wird, dass multilaterale Umweltabkommen nicht den Welthandelsregeln der WTO untergeordnet werden dürfen. Idealerweise sollte diese Forderung noch in das Aktionsprogramm integriert werden. Sollte dies nicht mehr möglich sein, ist ein eindeutiger Satz zu diesem Thema in der politischen Erklärung der Regierungschefs um so notwendiger. Wenn der Johannesburg-Gipfel die Autonomie und Autorität multilateraler Umweltabkommen nicht eindeutig bestätigt, wird die Entwicklung wirksamer multilaterale Abkommen zum Schutze der Umwelt und der Gesundheit der Menschen weiter "eingefroren" bleiben. Heute will niemand Vereinbarungen unterzeichnen, die potenziell von der WTO angegriffen werden könnten. Johannesburg muss deshalb eine eindeutige Botschaft an die laufenden Verhandlungen zum Thema Umwelt und Handel innerhalb der WTO senden: Umweltabkommen haben, sollte es zum Konflikt kommen, Vorfahrt vor
