Ten definitions appear in the print edition, and over 20 in the on-line version, but the selected highlights have to be understood as only a small sample of the many variations on this theme.

Assoc. Prof. Lawrence Waldron will be presenting research on Indigenous retentions in Caribbean folk medicine on Saturday, Dec. 14 at the Smithsonian Institution. He will explore the early 20th century calypso, “West Indian Weed Woman” as an example of how deeply Indigenous culture has saturated into Caribbean popular culture.
Before joining the faculty of Montserrat College of Art in 2013, Lawrence Waldron had taught both studio art and art history for over fifteen years. He has published essays and presented conference papers on the arts of the pre-Columbian Americas; colonial and modern art, architecture and music in the Caribbean; Buddhist symbols of Asia; traditional textiles in Southeast Asia; and Islamic architecture in Spain and Africa. He has curated two exhibitions of traditional textiles of the Philippines. He is currently completing two books on the art and iconography of the pre-Columbian Caribbean.
