Performance Art by Romani / Roma /Travelers / Sinti

Romani / Roma /Travelers / Sinti…

‘The word Roma is increasingly used as a generic description, including by Amnesty International and the United Nations. But we acknowledge that Gypsy, Roma, Romani, and Traveller people have diverse origins, that they have the right to self-identify, and to have their chosen designation respected.

Not to be confused with Romanians (people from the country Romania), Sinti, Gitano, Cygan, Romanes, Romanichal, Nachins, Minceir, and Kale are just a few of the groups (or tribes) found within this community. The Roma have been in Europe for over 600 years and can be settled or nomadic. Often called a nation without a homeland, genetic research and linguistic evidence seems to indicate a medieval Indian origin for the early Roma. The spoken languages are believed to have Sanskrit origins.’ (
