Guardian of Culture: Willard John
I had the pleasure of meeting up with Culture Bearer, Willard John. The backdrop of Fort Christian was the ideal location for this interview. If you’ve seen Moko Jumbies dancing at any parade or Jump Up on St. Croix, you’ve seen his protégés of the Guardians of Culture. One of the top performers is Willard’s own son Ayo. Willard’s days of performing are few and far between these days but he is busy with his mission of training the young ones.
