In Response To: Gullah - DNA ()
Aren't Geechee and Gulluh linguistic/location identifiers? I dunno.
Well, I decided to do a little research and found this: "It is thought that the word Gullah itself derives from “Angola” and that Geechee is from a tribal name in Liberia." from web site: www.npca.org/explore_the_parks/new_parks/gullahgeechee.asp
and this: "The African slaves, who came from different regions in African, brought with them their language, culture and traditions. Collectively these traditions and languages have merged into one to form Gullah. The Gullah culture has survived over the years by Gullah elders passing down the language and traditions to their children."
