My parents were born in Cameroon, a country situated in west Africa. They spent a vast amount of ears there before moving to America. Back in Cameroon we had traditional dances that were part of our culture and there we wore cultural clothes with this embroidery. The patterns always had green, red and yellow in them to match our flag colors. Wearing traditional hats along with the dresses or shirts were always a way of showing appreciation for our country. Its heartwarming to me that even after y parents moved to America, they continued wearing them.
