This project is a homage to the Caribbean tribal communities of Tainos. Its titled of empowering your roots focuses on reminiscing the tribal makeup and accessories with a contemporary style for the women who were once part of these communities which includes the following countries Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Haiti, and Jamaica. At the same time, I am motivated to do this beauty project of the Tainos is to connect, inspire, teach, and learn more about my native culture by creating an image to portraying the tribal styles, accessories, head wraps colors,and ritual practice that connect us from the Caribbean to our Afro-descendant community. This is just the beginning journey of this beauty photography project of visual storytelling.
