O Romano Kopachi – The Romani Tree

Ame le Rroma sam ekh baro kopachi. Amare vuni si ande India thai amaro korpo si swako riga ande lumia. Amare krenzhi si amare vitsi thai ande amare vitsi si but familiyi.

“We the Roma are a giant tree. Our roots are in India and our trunk is everywhere in the world. Our branches are our clans and each clan has many families.”

— Romani refugee claimant while waiting for his hearing at the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada, Toronto, 2002.
