Juice of the Golden Seed

The Gullah Geechee

The term “Gullah Geechee” is derived from Angola (West Africa) where many enslaved Africans were taken from by plantation owners. The language they spoke—Gullah—is an English-based Creole language with some 30 different African dialects words and grammar patterns. 

From unique food traditions to amazing works of artistry, the Gullah Geechee offer a glimpse into a past that has shaped our present, one that should be celebrated rather than forgotten or ignored.

From Past to Present

What's in a Name?

Siwani Means Swan

You might be curious about the meaning of Siwani, and for good reason. "Siwani" is a beautiful word that has a lot of meaning behind it. Our founder comes from the Swann family, and in Yoruba, "siwani" means "swan." Swans are known for - beauty, grace, elegance - we knew we had the right fit for our brand!

But the swan is also associated with healing and protection, connecting to the very important social and economic development values that also characterize this brand and Geechee culture. Inherent to our mission is that when we are successful, the community and the diaspora will be also. Join our mailing list to take part in the journey with us!
