Hi, you are Romani? My family is apparently Romani but they don't really talk about it or know about it, and I want to learn about the culture and I don't really know where to start. I saw you posting about bad sources, do you have any good ones that you recommend? I want to learn about my history, but no one on that side of my family had any interest in like, culture and stuff so it was never a thing talked about. (You don't have to answer, thank you!)

hello!! i’m indeed romani, more specifically romanichal. i’ve actually heard about people in your position more than once, and it’s very unfortunate that our culture can become lost to some people and families, but the lucky thing is there’s always time to learn!

if you want to learn more about your family in particular, i would first try to find out which subgroup to which your family belongs, which may or may not be easily figured out depending on where you’re from, unless your family did a lot of moving around and immigrating. this’ll be especially important if you intend on learning a romani language dialect, as each subgroup has their own, which is usually at least in part influenced by the native language of the country they lived in

for example, i am - as previously stated - a romanichal (sometimes spelt romanichel) which means my family eventually settled in and lived in england, but they immigrated to the usa, where i’ve lived my whole life. so if you’re able to find out where your family may have originally come from, you can probably figure out whether you’re romanichal, lovari, cale, sinti, etc.

i was personally lucky enough to have learned about our history and language from a young age, so i can’t really imagine what it must be like to have to discover it later in life tbh so i hope you manage to find all you’re looking for!

anyhoo, i’ve compiled a few sources here for you (and anyone else who’s curious!) to check out:

wikipedia - romani subgroups (i know listing wikipedia as a source for anything is usually frowned upon BUT this article actually has a pretty comprehensive list of subgroups and where they’re from, to get you started)

rotasandribbons here on tumblr is a VERY excellent source on nearly anything romani you can think of, as you can see, there’s numerous resources on their page linked right in the sidebar for numerous categories (although some are under construction, i would check back every now and then!). i realise looking at everything listed here may be overwhelming, so i’m going to cherry-pick a few good resources for you to look at

romani projekt is originally a german site, but i’ve linked the english version here. some of the links still lead to german pages so if you’re better at understanding english (idk, maybe ur german?), just click the “english version” box up the the right side of the page and you’re good. this is a good site for learning about language-related things, but there’s also a good amount of history. the resources section of this site is also very good and offers more links to other sites about romani history and culture

romani connection - some history here, but i’m mostly linking it for its good list of books

roma facts is a very good site in general for learning about both history and culture. there’s a LOT here

if you find out you’re kalderash, OR if you just want to learn a dialect of romani in general that follows actual romani grammar, Learn Romani: Das-duma Rromanes by Ronald Lee is a very good source, i have this book myself and it’s incredibly useful

american romanichals - IF you happen to find out you’re romanichal, you might get some use out of this site if you’re able to trace any of your family history; you may find some stuff about your ancestors here!

of course there’s many more sources available and i would encourage you to explore the sources on rotasandribbon’s blog as much as possible :>

edit: i’d like to add here that i want to emphasise to you not to feel any shame or invalidation from having to learn about your family’s history and culture from books and sites, as i said, your situation isn’t entirely uncommon. so if anyone tries to make you feel less for having to learn this way, pay them absolutely no heed

We’re looking for art bloggers who post mainly their own League content, we’d like to give you a follow and possibly use your art for upcoming confessions. <3 If you repost/reblog League content, that is okay, too, as long as EVERYTHING is sourced correctly the proper artist ^^ Like/Reblog if you post either your own league art and/or sourced league art.

maybe netflix wanted to stay true to the comics when they casted for danny rand? although i agree that the fighting scenes are pretty weak, i saw the show and it's pretty good. also, sorry but can you explain what is the orientalist and anti ssian narrative you mentioned? i'm just curious.

funny marvel didn’t care about staying true when it comes to casting an asian role as a white woman in d. strange. qwhite interesting.

anyway I linked all relevant sources in the previous post in bold and if you need more details you can also Google the show + yellow peril/orientalism/anti-asian; there are plenty of articles online.

anyone else notice that on mobile you can’t click the source links on posts anymore where I’m pretty sure you used to be able to do that
