I am a sixth generation native, enjoying life on Daufuskie Island where I grew up learning the tough love way of life. The Gullah people were and still are proud people that lives life off the land from their gardens, the woods and the ocean which were skills they learned at a young age and did things they would never forget. There way of life was simple yet sometimes hard meeting their day-to-day needs, not their wants. They were taught manners and respect for all, something I am proud to still use to this day. My childhood gave me treasures of a lifetime, thanks To my ancestors and folks that are gone, but not forgotten. My experience about Daufuskie is a lifetime of knowledge as a native. I have given tours on Daufuskie for many years sharing the history of my family and what life was like then and now.
