A Shukorina is Built With Sweat Not Debt! Artwork illustrated by Eritrean artist & designer, Selina @sell_soul333.
Shukor means "sugar" in Tigrinya and is used as a term of endearment for a loved one or friend. Shukorina's character was inspired by Eritrean women who delicately teeter between sugar and salt, making things sweeter at times, and more savory in others.
Shukorina was also inspired by self-sufficiency principles core to the Eritrean struggle for independence:
"The Eritrean struggle for independence is a popular nationalist movement attached to the most oppressed segments of Eritrean society -- peasants, nomads and workers -- engaged in the autonomous self-institution of the historicality of the Eritrean people. It is, in other words, a movement engaged in the process of reclaiming history, i.e. the indigenous historicality of the Eritrean people." (Dan Connell Review of African Political Economy (Sheffield, UK), Sept. 2001).
