To be a millennial Creole is to embody conflict. Through memory, familial voices, objects from the past, and recipes that read like spells, Sarah asks what it means to reclaim such a specific history. When your ancestors are both the colonized and the colonizers, when your past muddles devils and the oppressed, how do you stand fully in the present? What does your body know about where it came from? In this piece, Sarah searches for tools to answer these questions and tries to learn how to use them.
