“Dreadlocks story”
…..a film made to confuse:-
Sad to see once again any achievement of Black African people
being regarded as influenced by others.

Rastafari wearing of locks was not influenced by the
Indian indentured laborers of Jamaica.

“Dreadlocks” has a long and widely distributed history with the
African masses both at home and abroad.

Locks from the standpoint of Ethiopia,
from whence Rastafari spiritually hails,
are grown and worn at time of war.
The Bahitawi, or holy man, quite often, also wears locks.

Downstream in Kenya the MauMau,
in the war of independence against Britain wore locks.
This also greatly contributed to Jamaicans
adorning this ancient African tradition of locks.

Many slaves were captives from west African
where children in say Nigeria and Ghana will go locked until about aged 4.

In the ancient world, many of the original Black Greek people wore locks,
this can be seen on the so called Black pottery as well as various statues.
It is worth noting that the earliest of the Greek gods are Black Africans and
even Apollo, “King of the Gods”, can be seen wearing “Dreadlocks”.

Long before the Greeks, sculptured works are available which show that
the ancient African Egyptians were locked,
as witnessed in the princes of Tanis.

Locks spread worldwide anciently as can be attested to in them even being found amongst the original Australians.

All the above mentioned is available visually,
if any need to see images, I will provide them.

Speaking of influence, it would be far more uplifting to show
the African influence on India which itself a colony of the ancient Ethiopians,
this would throw much needed light on the fact that
many cultural traits are shared in both Asia and Africa.
