Eritrean History, Culture and Identity

From the Land of Punt, Italian Colonization, Ethiopian “Federation,” British Administration – to the successful War of Independence, the land that this young nation represents has history. One thing has always been constant though: culture. A national self-rule has reinvigorated the shared identity of this prideful community.

If I had a nickel for every time I’ve said: no hablo Español in response to something said in Spanish – and have been hit with: ¿Por Que? then, this millionaire’s website would have been a dedication to my parents for making me “look Spanish.” Shout out to all the Eritrean girls that got offended by the “you look mixed; you don’t look African” people. Shout out to those who didn’t because when they say “say something African” then, why not just respond by saying “something African?”

Nowadays – in this information age – people know of Eritrea/ns. HOWEVER, knowing of and knowing about are two different things. That said, I will dedicate this page to providing elementary information on Eritrea – for the second generation Diaspora Eritreans and others who still “want to visit Africa one day.”
