Hello! My name is Laja Okunuga of Ade Africana Imports in Seattle, Washington , USA.

We have been trading in fine African Imports from our storefront business on the famous Broadway Ave. in the colorful and thriving Capitol Hill neighborhood for seven years now.

Over the years we have gained respect, and admiration in our community not only for our products, but also for our warm, friendly and comprehensive customer service. The people of Seattle have come to know us as a place where they can not only select from a wide variety of Carvings, Masks, Clothes, Jewelry, and Musical instruments, but also a place from which they can walk away garnering a smile, and a little better understanding of African arts and culture.

We are a collective of Seattle activists working to educate and inform our communities on the climate crisis. Our presentations connect global warming to the systems of oppression. We are focused on shifting the narrative of the climate movement to one that is beyond the superficial causes (fossil fuels) to the deeper injustices of the world by decolonizing our minds and our audiences’. We speak from our personal truths and share unique perspectives on demanding climate justice and collectively creating a new, just future for us all.
