Our Ancestor - Mudah

Olga Elizabeth aka Mudah, born in Guyana, South America, is my maternal great-grandmother and spiritual guide. She lived to be 104 years old with a strong heart and mind. Throughout many spiritual experiences Mudah has called me into this labor of love for myself, family and community. We launched Black.Bird.Rising project in 2023 on her birthday, September 20th!
