That is what I was told that he was, and that was the first time I had ever heard the word.) boy that couldn’t stop professing his love for me. I couldn’t see that there was any black in him, just that his hair had a slight curl on the ends, but my cousins made sure I knew he wasn’t “all the way Indian.”Being raised in the states, there were some nuances of Trinidadian culture that I didn’t understand.
The other has to do with the strength of your relationship with your boyfriend. In the case of a traditional Indian family not approving of an outsider to the tribe, this couldn’t be more familiar.
