Oracle Bone is the original Chinese pictographs which came before Kanji. Like many 1st-gen diasporic children of immigrants, my parents never spoke to me in our mother tongue. When I was 6, I asked my parents to take me to chinese school, to which they said "Just ask Gramma." But Mama didn’t speak english, and at 6, I really wasn’t that driven. Being an ABC (American-Born Chinese), I’d only been exposed to Egyptian Heiroglyphs by way of a small chapter in a eurocentric ass history class. When I came across Oracle Bone, I saw similarities between other ancient melantated cultures’ known symbols for sun and stars. It made sense- there's always been a certain level of understanding amongst poc, it's embedded in our DNA. I studied these symbols a way to understand modern-day Chinese characters which evolved from these pictographs of my ancestors.
