Ilha da Inhaca (Inhaca Island) – Dec ’15

If you ever find yourself in “Inhaca Island”

1) Ask the the locals what the name of their chief is and note how it strangely resembles “Inhaca”

2) Realise how across all tribes, white folks never bother to learn the real pronunciation or spelling
of your name.

3) Politely ask for your* land back**

* Not really yours but let’s pretend it is.

** I know that collectively, Black folks have been politely asking for their land back since the end of colonialism, I am still in the process of engaging with the reality of the fact that white folks have have politely said “no” to that request. Bear with me while I still think this through or nah, whichever floats your bubble
