If you want something emblematic, I’d suggest a horseshoe or wagon wheel, or even a guitar.

Reply I have been diligently digging into my family’s history for years.

Growing up, the only way to explain to people what we are is to say that we’re gypsies. But then again I grew up in middle class America, not in a Romani community. Reply I want to talk about forms of dance that were developed and spread by gypsy peoples.

I don’t want to use the word Romani (or Rom, or Roma, ghak, I’ve just spotted a Romanichal above – what is happening to the nouns? ) because that excludes peoples like the Dom & Lom who would not self-identify as Rom & who are involved in some of these dances.

I’m predominantely interested in the tribes that migrated north, that is, to Scandinavia – mainly Sweden – and while there’s some great books on the subject of MODERN roma, I’m looking for more history and such. I want racial diversity, but I want to do this the right way! Help me discover more about my past, its important.. my Great grandmother brought her way of life, and teachings with her, but nobody knows where she came from.. Reply The best way to find your Romani roots is to take a DNA Ancestry test to analyze how and where you fit in genetically. In all honesty I’ve no idea what that means, and it might not even be true. well, nothing like hearing it from the horse’s mouth I suppose.

Plus, I would love to know what the culture is like. Please e-mail me at [email protected] you can help me out with this. Alexandra Reply My grandmothers side of my family was Hungarian and Romanian . Reply I am Romani but do not have any connections to my Romani past.

The origin of the Roma people has until somewhat recently been shrouded in misinformation and misunderstanding.

Historical romantics have asserted their origin to be anything from wandering Egyptian mystics (The appellation “Gypsy” stems from this misunderstanding) to a lost tribe of Hebrews.

The term “Gypsy” should not be used unless it is for the sake of art, literature, historical and or cultural reference.

It is true that within the “Gypsy” community the term “Gypsy” is still used affectionately, some don’t mind it at all, while others would be violently offended. If all else fails, don’t be a xenophobic hater and mind your basic manners — and all will be okay. I’m attempting to create as accepting and diverse a portrayal of the romany people in my fantasy world, and I’d love some help!

The Roma chakra, was adopted in 1971 at the First World Romani Congress as the official symbol of the Roma (“Gypsy”) people, resembles a Hindu Chakra wheel, and not unintentionally.
