Bin Yah-Come Yah: The slaves were experts–A

The woman explains how South Carolina smells as a traveler gets closer and closer to it. It smells of the ocean, very salty. When a Gullah person says bin Yah, it means in English that they ‘have been here’ and come Yah means ‘come here’. They speak some Hebrew but don’t really know it. *sounds like KumYah

The slaves were expert rice growers.

Gullah Festival in Beufort, South Carolina. This video is from May 2011.  I have never been to this festival.
