Since Hurricane Maria touched the entire Caribbean it is hard for anyone who knows ones , lived or visited any of the islands to not care and be concerned. US citizens or not, the entire Carribbean has given the Earth a consciousness and connection to Africa and the Culture developed through each islands way of finding sovereignty and defending it. Whether in the drum beats preserved, or the rich indigenous history that proves our presence in the west before Columbus. The Caribbean has shaped world view through music and African awareness and reverence. The Word “Hurricane” is a Tiano word from the native people of Boricau aka Puerto Rico, the same natives that have given over 500 words we use regularly. Like BBQ, ( another Taino word) it has transcended words, it is a link to how we used to relate and how many of us still do. Keep good relations and lets focus this year to helping out St. Croix, St. Martin, Dominica, Puerto Rico, do more than recover, but collectively realize that warming water is a result of rising temperatures. That this is man made to a heavy degree, a result of green house gases, majority are from THE MEAT INDUSTRY, AND THEN OIL AND GAS. The people of Caribbean have suffered massively for crimes that they have contributed and benefited least from. This is a bigger issue of how the Earth is treated, and whether we let the most murderous governments use the environment to spread a neocolonial agenda that only increases poverty and world suffocation. I suggest that everyone see the speech made by the Prime Minister of Dominica to the United Nations about 2 weeks ago.
With that said, we are having a concert to raise awareness, and some money. It will be sent directly to a Ras in PR who is responsible and an honor to have in the community. I would like to send a warm hail up to Fikir Amlak and Brizon for putting out an album where 100 percent goes to PR. The link for that album is. https://iroots.bandcamp.com/album/fikir-amlak-brizion-we-live-on-dubplate-for-charity

Blessed Love One and All, we are getting ready for Colorado! Ras Zakarias and InI and Empress are taking this show on the road. This may be the biggest display of Original Art and Prints We have ever taken out of New Mexico. There’s so much happening its nearly hard to say…Here is a flyer with the details! Give thanks for the Colorado Ras, Sean Bookman, as well as Ras Elbow, for hosting and organizing at the “Da Base Camp” in the Lakewood area of Denver. Really looking forward to citing everyone for a one day mini-festival of cultural reverence. Haile Selassie I.
Here’s a sneak peak at a piece that I’m finishing up this morning before InI Head forward…
More Powers. LIONART ON THE WAY.
What a Joyful Meditation it is to think of Emperor Haile Selassie I. This painting spoke to who His Imperial Majesty is to INI, because it is of HIM alone holding His Royal Umbrella. In a Fatherly walk He approaches, where the Heaven and Earth are indistinguishable. Water and Rain everywhere and it looks at first He walks on water, which we all do when He rains.
The Umbrella is special for many reasons, including it represents the Heavens protection and His Imperial Position, usually a Head of State and certainly the Emperor has a trusted one hold his Umbrella, and this was a rare photo that was used. The Rasta-Man aka Priest and Prophet, ( the trusted ones) holds the umbrella as do they crown the King, for no King can Crown Himself. This Great King, can carry His Own Umbrella, He is all of Man’s history and future walking towards you. An Emperor who doesn’t believe in classism, and is joyful carrying the weight as Earth’s Rightful Ruler. Walking in way that reminds I of any good father, with the confidence that He was sent to help Us weather the storm. Thank You Jah for watching out for us, and walking with us, as One of Us.
“Jah’s Umbrella.” Acrylic and Indian Ink.
This Painting will be shown for the first time Sept. 10th at Da Base Camp in Denver for Ethiopian New Years Celebrations. The Original and Prints are available and ready. 25. for a print, and the original is 700. 26″x20″ on Canvas. Shared Rights are available for reproduction. Email or inbox.
Give thanks for the Emerald Judah King, For the Guidance and Mercy of the Emperor. This piece is inspired by His Imperial Majesty, Emperor Haile Selassie I and His ability to resonate a Power that is so Strong and Humble. The Feeling of Life itself inhaling. The Color of the Rock of Judah is Green, and often you will see InI paint Green as the Aura of the Palace or His Throne. Judah Emerald. The Cross symbolism is to remind ones of the Prophecy of Christ’s Kingdom which is seen through the Line of David. The Conquering Lion is wearing His signature cape as He warned the World of Fascism and WW2 to come as well as the solution being collective security. The Painting is based on a photo taken in 1936 in Geneva, with an influence of Orthodox Coptic Christian Art.

As I was painting I decided to stop here because His Imperial Majesties face reminded I of His Father in flesh, Ras Makonnen Wolde Mikael. Sometimes when painting someone you can tap into the ancestors and something comes out, grandma, sometimes our children. I said I hope you can see Ras Makonnen, left it there and put the brush down.
The original is for sale and as well signed prints. The piece is also available for use, so let me know if you need an album cover. Prints are 25.00 plus shipping, email or inbox InI. Just one of the many painting cover to Denver this Sept. 10th Ethiopian New Year show. At The BaseCamp on Sunday!
This is a picture of Ras Makonnen Wolde Mikael, Father of His Imperial Majesty.

GIVE THANKS FOR THE REFLECTIONS AND INFLECTIONS OF H.I.M. HAILE SELASSIE I.
It is a true joy to feel the Spirit in this time and I hope you enjoy this new piece, ”LAVA.” The piece is inspired by the Fire that Ethiopia produces within the Higher Self that holds the Energy of the Heavens. Foot Firm on the Rock, The Grounding is the harnessing of the Gift of Power ( HAILE). InI have the Angels comforting and guiding I, this is a painting of the feeling of the awesome current that unites us with the angelic forces.
New paintings are coming forward, and its a joy to share them with everyone. Let The Most High be Praised. In excitement for the Ethiopian New Year Celebrations ( Sept. 11) I have been painting a lot! InI look forward to sharing the art at The Base Camp on Sunday in Denver and will be sharing huge amounts of art with the community to reason on African History, Collective Responsibility, Ethiopian Prophecy and Rastafari Culture.
