John De Conqueror and High John Root are well known by Black Americans, so featuring the Ipomoea Jalapa was one of the first design choices! 🍃 Wear the flower of this plant to remind you that your Ancestors have your back and that you are filled with the power of your bloodline.

Remind yourself that you do it for the Ancestors! Johnny Cocheroo (pronounced Johnny Conqueroo), John de Konker, High John...this prince from West Africa who was sold into slavery in the USA has held many variations to his name as his story has been passed on throughout the Black community. Not only associated with the  Ipomoea Jalapa root (also called High John), is known as a symbol of strength, resilience, a wily nature, with a spirit that never gives up or is broken and always has one more trick up his sleeve. Br'er Rabbit and Uncle Remus are considered based in some part in his image. His day of remembrance/holiday is commonly celebrated the 3rd Thursday of October.
