It is the Twa that I’m my ancestor’s wildest dream shirt chased out of Ireland. The story of the holiday is actually a veiled attempt to cover up genocide, as St. Patrick lead the charge to hunt these men and women down to kill them. According to legend, St. Patrick was well known for chasing the serpents out of Ireland. Now on the outside they make it sound like some miracle that he saved the people from deadly serpents. There is in fact no evidence that real serpents ever existed in Ireland. But if you understand that the serpents they are speaking of are really a symbol for something else, this particular plot point in the story becomes a lot more interesting. As will be demonstrated below the serpents of the story are an allusion to the people of African descent the Twa who lived in Ireland.
Its important to note I’m my ancestor’s wildest dream shirt, that in addition to Twa, some of the names for our people include Naga, Nagar and Negus, which means loosely serpent people or people of the serpent. The name is also synonymous with Pharaohs and Kings. In many African cultures the serpent is not a symbol of evil but one of eternal life, regeneration, power, protection and wisdom.
