Sierra Leone Heritage Community

About The Community

You can become part of SierraLeoneHeritage.org by joining the Sierra Leone Heritage Facebook Group. This will enable you to post comments, participate in discussions, upload photos and videos, and share your interest in Sierra Leonean culture and heritage with other like-minded people. This digital resource recognises that different people have different knowledges and experiences of cultural traditions, practices, performances, objects and sites. By integrating the social networking features of Facebook into the resource, we hope that SierraLeoneHeritage.org will provide a forum for bringing these differently-situated knowledges together. So, whether you are Sierra Leonean or not, whether an academic or a cultural performer, a carver or a museum curator, a traditional healer or a tourist, you are welcome to join the community, contribute your knowledge, and help us to learn from each other.

Hi all, I am new to this group, but think you are doing some interesting stuff. I have been working on and off in Sierra Leone for the past 6 years. I have recently been looking into what is known about Sierra Leone's history pre 1500s. I could find very little. I wrote this article about it, and I would really like your feedback. Have I missed something? Are there other sources of information I did not include? Or is this your understanding as well?

Thanks!

Alex

I just learned from a Canadian friend that African-Canadians in Nova Scotia have a yearly celebration for the Nova Scotians who left to resettle in Freetown in 1792. Does anyone have information about this?
