My UNICCO Support




   

 MY CONTRIBUTIONS TO UNICCO
         

I was never intending to write this message, but it appears that some of the detractors in UNICCO who have never done a single thing for this
organization have the tendency of challenging others about what others have done or not done for UNICCO. To stop answering the same questions
over and over from these detractors -- Masters and Misses DO LITTLES,
whose  only definition of achievement  or accomplishment in life is to
build a house. 

 I just want to set the historical records straight. Accomplishment
in life is more than just building a house. There are other ways 
people accomplish or achieve in life without building a house or a hut.
By helping other people in life, giving them opportunity to acquire their
education, building schools for them, giving them clean drinking water,
teaching them in school, and even helping organization like UNICCO is
a form of accomplishment in life.  Building a house in Monrovia or in
some remote town in Nimba is not all the achievement in life.  For some
people  in our midst, you do not need to attend high school or even
go to college.   Achievement in life is to build a house.  According to them,
even if you have taught in universities, colleges, and have acquired terminal 
degrees and have written over 15 books, you have not achieved anything in life
unless you build a house or a hut in Nimba County. To such people
I say, if that is your sense of achievement, go ahead and build a house, don't
even try to finish 9th grade or don't even go to high school;  if your choice
is to remain semiliterate  because for you, building house is all there is to life,
so be it; that is your choice, but do not force your personal values on house building on other people. Go ahead and build your houses and huts.

Again, the same person  whose ultimate values and concepts of
accomplishments do not extend beyond building a house,  goes around attacking and accusing others of being poor.  This  self-proclaimed rich person has nothing physically to show as a sign of his or her accomplishment.  Has never built a school house for any one, and has never taught any school, or
provided any clean drinking water from a pump for villagers or done anything of significance  that can stand as his or her legacy. No real tangible contribution to the society but always boasting of being rich and aggressively attacking others and calling them poor. Like the people of Texas say, "  This cowboy or cowgirl is nothing but  'TALK:  all hat and no cattle."  Interpreted as:" So  so talk and  braggadocio, but no substance nor evidence to show any proof of wealth and riches. In other words, "Talk: all hat and no cattle" means
someone pretending to be something, or somebody he or she is not. It means
a person talking the talk,  but cannot walk the walk. That is a person
who cannot back up his or her words; a fake, a pretender or a charlatan.

For others, their goals are intangible things that help them understand
and appreciate life in its totality. Those intangible variables include things
like Education, Religion and Theology,  Philosophy and Politics, to be
able to understand the world better and be able to speak back to the
world that speaks to them in all these different ways.  A tangible thing
like house can be taken away from you or burned down during a
war as some people now know.  But the intangibles can  never be
taken away from you. Kindness, love, service, education, wisdom, charity,
all these can not be taken away from you.  Your house can be taken
away from you.  The one I follow and serve never built a house, but
buildings are named in his name and in his honor.

For some, achievement is to be able to share knowledge, provide
oppoturnities for others and struggle that others may have the rights
to vote, and to be heard, and to participate in the political process.

Building a house is not all there is to life. Most people build houses
and do not even sleep in them much. House is not the only thing you can
leave for people when you die.  When you educate people, you enable
them to be able to build a thousand and one houses.  My entire life has
been devoted to educating people in Liberia and in America. Some of
those I have educated are building more than houses.  Achievement is
not always about yourself.  Some people spend their entire life simply
to make other people achieve their dreams in life. Only selfish and people
who do not understand what life is all about will think that building
a house is the ultimate thing in life.  Life is more than just building a house.

This information is intended to be a deterrent to keep the detractors from coming to my doors with their bag of questions and their focus on 
building houses and huts.

These  phonies who have never done anything of any significance or
consequence are constantly challenging others.  If any of them thinks
he or she has contributed more than others, please feel free to tell us
what you have done and we will send you your bouquet of flowers.  Some
of us may not give in great quantity, but we believe in giving in quality.
We give high quality contributions that are not easily duplicated.
When we make a difference, we make a critical difference that remains
as legacy to our commitment. Not only talk, talk with no substance.

UNICCO was officially organized or founded on December 29-30 1979 in Atlanta, Georgia at the first organizing meeting that was held in which Nimba ethnic peoples from many states in the USA were invited to attend.  Mr. George Duo was the coordinator and Doaker Mongrue was the Chairman.
_____________________________________________________________________

G
 



The second annual meeting was held in New York from August 30-31, 1980.  Peter Wheye and I, Nya Kwiawon Taryor, were the keynote speakers for the occasion.

I was the first person to be officially selected by all the attendees to

conduct UNICCO’s first election in 1980 in New York, City.

I was not only the speaker, I was the conductor of UNICCO’s

first Election.  (look on pages 62-63 in Liberia Facing Mt. Nimba)

At that election:

Peter Whye was elected President,

F. Gonkarnue Bouquia was elected General Secretary and

Edward Nya Youn Yadolo was elected Treasurer General.

Their term of office was from 1980-1981.
_____________________________________________________________________



The Third Conference was held in Philadelphia from Sept 4 to 7, 1981. 
 I was present.  Dr. Joseph Guannu was the guest speaker. We contributed greatly to that conference. The theme of this conference was introduced
 by Mr. James Saye.  In his opening remarks, Mr. Saye clarified the fact that even though we were referring to ourselves as Nimba Students' Association,
we have eliminated that expression,  We are now UNICCO, United Nimba Citizens' Council.   The reason for this he said, "to allow for a broader and inclusive participation."   (Taryor, 1991, pp. 82-83)

The theme for the occasion, as announced by Mr. James Saye was,
 "Agriculture:  The Basis for Nimba Development."  
(Taryor, 1991, pp. 82-83) ____________________________________________________________


   
Again, the 4th Conference that was held in Ohio when Marcus Dahn and Jeff Yeanay were in Ohio, I was one of those who wrote letters out inviting participants and tried to raise money for that occasion.
_____________________________________________________________________



I also  participated in the 5th conference held in Minnesota from Sept. 3-4 1983.
____________________________________________________________



On January 7, 1984, at the demonstration in Washington DC
   during the heat of the Military repression in Liberia, I was the
representative speaker for ULAA and UNICCO at the  front of the Whitehouse.  

   A copy of that speech can be found on pages 290 to 297 in my book, Liberia Facing Mount Nimba. 
_____________________________________________________________________



The following year, we had one more demonstration in New York before
the UNITED NATIONS BUILDING.  I was the speaker of that occasion,
representing UNICCO.

         


There were several demonstrations in major cities like Chicago, New York, and
  Washington DC in which I participated and was the keynote speaker at
those demonstrations.  See some of the photos of the different demonstrations
in my book, (Liberia Facing Mount Nimba, pp. 72, 74, 81, 88)

______________________________________________________________________




From the inception of the organization, I tried to attend almost all the meetings and participate fully with my support nationally.

I think one of my most significant contributions to the organization came when the organization was breaking apart.  I called an Elders’ Conference in Chicago in 1991 where we critically analyzed the problems that were tearing the organization apart.  Delegates were encouraged to return home to the various states, to try to mend the problems that have torn us apart.  The name of that conference was, ELDERS’ CONFERENCE. That helped to keep the organization in tact. Mr. James Saye was one of the presenters at this Elders' Conference and he and others can attest to the success of this conference. Our report was published in a little booklet with the title:

TO CHAKALA OR NOT TO CHAKALA? That is UNICCO's Headache.

A few of the presenters at that conference were,  Mr. James Saye,
Dr. Marcus Dahn,  Dr. Fredrick Norkeh, Mrs. Mai Yuan,
Ms. Nohn Kidau, and Ms. Elena Bailey.   There were other presenters that I cannot recall from memory, but there were additional presenters at the conference. 

In additional to the presenters, there were other participants who
drove or flew from other parts of the country to be at the Elders'
Conference.  We have always been grateful for their commitment
to our common and shared vision and mission for our people.

Most recently when the Dumpa issue came up, I was asked by the
President of UNICCO to head a committe to write a position paper
to be sent to the Superintendent and to the President of Liberia. I
headed that committee and we wrote that position paper.

____________________________________________________________________



This is not the only time I have headed a committee for such ad-hoc
responsibility. When the civil war started in Lberia in December of 1989, 
UNICCO Annual Conferences devoted most of the conference time
raising money and discussing the implications of the war.  On several
occasions, I served as discussion leader for groups during those 
conferences.  Furthermore, I have been invited as guest speaker at
many of these UNICCO conferences.  Just to list at least two of
the occasions where I was the speaker.  From August 31-Sept. 3, 1990,
during the UNICCO conference held in Minneapolis, MN.  I was the
guest speaker. (Taryor,  227-Chapter 15).  

Another Major UNICCO conference when Charles Weanquoi   (Spokesman)
and Mai Yuan (Chairlady) were at the helm of leadership  in the organization,
trying to transform UNICCO for the better, I was invited to be the Keynote speaker in Atlanta, Georgia.  This was about 2001. I was in California at that time, but I came and we had a wonderful conference in Atlanta that year.

These are just two examples of the many UNICCO occasions at which
I have served as guest speaker for the National UNICCO Conferences.
It also goes without saying that on many more occasions, local chapters
have had me as their speaker and consultant on many issues.

_____________________________________________________________________



Most recently, just last year, when UNICCO conference took place
in Providence, Rhode Island, I was one of the panelists. 

____________________________________________________________

 
 


During the transitional time when Peter Wehye was serving as interim
   chair person after Wongben was impeached, there was to be a conference in  Providence, Rhode Island.  Senator Prince Johnson was invited    to be the guest speaker, but he did not show up; and at the last minute,
I was
 asked to be the guest speaker, and that I willingly did.

_____________________________________________________________________



Another significant contribution was the publication of all the existing constitutions into a book in 1991.  The book is titled:

A Kee Zi  comprises the constitutions of 5 local chapters & the  National Organizatoion.

UNICCO Constitution
(1st & 2nd editions)

First and Original UNICCO
By-Law and Constitution 1982

UNICCO Revised
  (1989) Constitution

Chapters having constitution
 in this book include:

Chicago Chapter

Georgia Chapter

Minnesota Chapter

New Jersey Chapter

New York Chapter 



               

          
Some Historical Facts about UNICCO

                                 WHAT IS UNICCO?

UNICCO stands for “United Nimba Citizens’ Council.” This organization is a United States of America based Liberian Ethnic Association made of mostly the inhabitants of Nimba County, one of Liberia’s political sub-divisions.  Majority of its people are of the Mah, Daan, Mandingo, Gbi, Kpelle, and Krahn Ethnic Groups. They are located in North Central Liberia.  Membership in UNICCO is also extended to all members’ spouses, and their children.  Some chapters have extended membership rights to “all persons interested in the welfare of Liberia and Liberians” (Chicago Chapter Article III see page 69 in [Nya Kwiawon Taryor, A Kee Zi, Constitutions and By-Laws of UNICCO National & Local Chapters 1991].  The five principles and Objectives of the organization are described in the Constitution.”

What are the 5 Principles and Objectives of UNICCO?

          Principles and           Objectives of               UNICCO


  • To create an environment for fostering better understanding among Nimbaians in America, as well as seeking to improve the economic, educational, and political opportunities for the people of Nimba County, Liberia;

  • To encourage and stimulate scholarly achievement among ourselves and to strive for spiritual enlightenment and moral integrity within our county;

  • To associate among ourselves and to provide for those Nimbaians who may be in need of assistance in seeking the purpose for which they have come to America;

  • To provide for an exchange of ideas and philosophies by sharing cultural and social activities with those from other counties and countries.












               Editor and Publisher of  All UNICCO's Constitutions--
                National and Local Chapters    

          Editor and publisher of Nimba County Organizations Constitution



Since the publication of À Kɛ̀ɛ̀ Zi, I have published every constitution that any chapter had written.  I have not only worked on
almost all the constitution committees, or advisory boards,
(except the constitution that was drafted under Wongehn's administration), I have worked with every Constitution in
UNICCO Both National as well as Local constitutions.
Beyond that, I have helped other Nimba County organizations
publish their constitution. Presently, I am helping to publish the Constitution of the Gehlay Development Association.  
Thats my contribution to UNICCO and other Nimba Organizations.


 
There is one revision of our constitution in this book. One 
is the 1981 original copy, and the other is the 1989 revision. The 1989 revision is the one we have used for all these many years in the absence of a revised adapted and approved constitution.  According to our constitution, no matter what amendment we make in all those other constitutions, unless the document is approved by the majority at the general conference, it is not a lawful and legal document. Some people have said that some of the s tipulations in some of these revised documents have  been approved and adapted. That is the reason why we were enable  to get our tax exampt status. True, no doubt about that. The same people say, we no longer have the Assembly system. We have a Board of Directors because
we have approved and adapted some parts of the constitution.  As true as that may sound, the approved and the unapproved stipulations are still mixed up in the body of the newly revised documents. However, we continue to carry these mixed bags with us without separating the approved from the unapproved stipulation of our constitution.  

What we need to do is to follow the correct procedure of adapting the constitution.  Let the document pass through
the legal, acceptable and constitutional process of adaption; then everyone will be comfortable with the document. But until then, there is still some ambivalence about what we call our newly adapted and approved constitution.



Under Wopea's Administration, this constitution, 2005 revised edition
of the constitution which was expected to have been adapted
at the National conference that year was rejected supinely 
because some members said that Mr. Wopea should not 
have added the officers' pictures on the cover of the constitution.   
The argument had nothing to do with the contents of the constitution. 
It had nothing to do with the the quality of the work or the stipulations
of the different Articles and Sections.  The contention was simply
about pictures on the cover of the booklet.  I thought that was
an easy matter.  Approve the constitution, let it be republished
with a new cover that has no pictures on it.  But the argument
probably had different motives.  Therefore, the Third Amended Edition
of 2005 UNICCO Constitution was never adapted for use.
What actually happened was, they threw the baby out with
the bath water.  

The next administration under Wonghen set up another
new constitution committee to re-draft the constitution.  
Before that constitution he ordered had been completed, he was
 impeached from office. That meant that his version of the
constitution was never accepted or 
adopted either.  

When Mr. Martin Dorlae came into power, He ordered his own 
team of Constitutional Scholars to draft the constitution, but leaving
some of the Wonghen's team on the committee.  The work was
completed in part because the advisory board that was set up to finalize
the approval of the constitution before it was taken to the general
assembly, never approved the work. I was on that board.  Mr. Saye
Gbalazeh was the chairman of the board. Sam Wogbeh was on the
constitution committee as its chairman.  But without a report from the
advisory board, the Dorlae's administration took the constitution to a
few chapter leaders and declared the constitution approved
AND ADAPTED.  Such act is unconstitutional.  

Until 
now, the issues surrounding the PROCESS USED IN THE adaption 
of the constitution is still hanging in the air.  The work is still in its draft or Manuscript form   8 1/2  X  11  See below.

These books of local and national constitutions are constitutions I worked on and helped to edit and publish -- published by my own publishing company, in collaboration with the leadership of the local or national chapter of UNICCO or the particular Nimba organization.


First and 2nd Revised Edition of the Constitution.    1988 and 2005


Minnesota 2nd Revised Edition
1906 Constitution


North California Chapter 2010



Zodo, Rhode Island Chapter, did not have a constitution of its own;
therefore, the members decided  a few years ago to republish the 1981 and 1989 constitution until they were ready with their own local Constitution
.  
   
 Nimba Organizations that
are not a part of UNICCO directly.  
One of these is the
Mehnsonnoh Seletorwaa
Development Association, USA, Inc.
I edited and published their Constitution and By-Laws.


                    ___________________________________________________


GBEHLAY   DEVELOPMENT   ASSOCIATION

I am presently working with the Gbahlay Development Association to construct their website.  I have printed or published their By-Laws and Constitution. That is how extensive my commitment is, not only to UNICCO, but to all organizations in the Nimba Community that need my help and support.
Click here for their website:  Gbehlay 
The site is still under construction but the constitution is already revised and published.  I just wanted to point out that these are the kinds of commitments I bring on the table when discussing
UNICCO and Nimba County as a whole.


I think the Gbehlay people are a progressive people who are doing their very best to provide help to their people in Liberia.  Under the leadership of their president, Mrs. Helen Teah-Saylee, the organization is moving forward and putting everything in place so that very soon, they can apply for their tax exampt status.  They need all the support they can get. Eventually when all is said and done, they will have one of the best district organizations from Nimba County.  Watch my words.

THE LITTLE RED BOOK

Rhode Island UNICCO Chapter

When I came to Rhode Island in 2005, I was very active in the local chapter of UNICCO.
I tried to help the then president Mr. Saye Kokeh
to fashion his administration.
I introduced a system that brought all Nimbaians together in Rhode Island.  

I introduced what we called the "little red book."  The little red book was our vital statistics and directory book with vital information for everyone. It consisted of:

A directory of all our members with their names, addresses, and telephone numbers.

Names of couples and the dates of their anniversaries.

Names, birthdays and telephone numbers of every one.

Since we did not have a meeting hall, but met in the homes of members monthly, a yearly schedule was made.   Each family member or individual, selected a date he or she or the family can host a meeting. This was a yearly plan that everyone knew in advance at whose house the meeting each month will be held and the time of each meeting.

The little red book was revised every three months in order to keep our addresses and telephone numbers current.



WHY DID WE PUBLISH THIS 
LITTLE RED BOOK? 

1. For members to communicate with one other frequently and regularly.

2.  For members to call one another on their Birthdays and Anniversary days and extend best wishes and felicitation.

3. To encourage consistent attendance regularly.

4.   To provide information about the place, time, and date of meetings. 

5.  To encourage members to invite others who have not attended meetings.

6.   To inform members to come to meetings with their children and spouses whether they are Nimbaians or not. Spouses who were not from Nimba were still considered members.

7.   So that members will know who the officers of the organization are.

8.   So they can know one another, fellowship with one another and communicate with one another.
++++++++++++++++++++++

This system worked very well and everyone appreciated it when it was in use.

These are just a few of the numerous contributions I have made to UNICCO since its inception.
  
I do not mind if I am challenged, or even criticized about my contributions to UNICCO, what I also ask in return is that you too must be able to show us your contributions to UNICCO or NIMBA COUNTY if you are challenging others about what they have done or what they have not done for UNICCO.

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE FOR UNICCO?

AUTHOR of UNICCO's Documentary History covering period (1975-1991)
  
Even though the organization was officially founded in December 1979, other Nimba organizations were functioning in several places such as Georgia, New Jersey, Minnesota, and New York under different names such as:
 
New York & New Jersey
"Nimba Students Association for Advancement"

John Kpahn's
 "Minlawon"

Minnesota
"Slewon"  For the sake of the Land

or
Georgia
 "Nimba Students Association of Georgia"

All these Nimba Associations merged together on December 30-31, 1979 to form what we call UNICCO today. 

 
As far as the truth is, this is the only definitive documentary history of UNICCO in print. Even though the work was written in 1991, because it is a history book, it will always be needed.   The fact is, it needs to be up dated and new materials since 1991 need to be gathered so that a sequel can be written to this book.  But in time to come, this book will be the only authentic source of UNICCO's history because UNICCO's history was still being made when the book was written.  The writer was a witness to the events he wrote about and he participated in the events he wrote about.  It was not a library research or a secondary source research, it was a primary ethnographic research.   This is my personal contribution to the organization.   Those who want to know what I have done for UNICCO, I want them to know that I have been the custodian and a good steward when it comes to UNICCO's constitutions and UNICCO's history.  These were sacrifices
I made out of my own will
and commitment.  UNICCO
never ordered or paid for my
services. I volunteered to
do this out of goodwill.

After over 22 years, it will be easy to write UNICCO's history now because the computer and the internet have made information accessible to all.  
I will encourage some of those people who have the appetite and the joy of challenging others about what they have done for UNICCO to take on the project
 to write the history of UNICCO from 1991 to the present.  

Or better yet, to write the history of UNICCO from 1979 to the present.  If anyone wants to know what I have done for UNICCO, all the information on this site should give you some idea about my commitment to this organization's records, history and constitution.  In addition, I have been committed to helping us find solutions to some of the problems that are breaking the organization apart.

   If I had not put the constitution together in 1991 into a book, we probably would not have any trace of that document now. I did not only write the history of UNICCO and preserve the constitution, I have been actively involved in all the peace processes the organization has initiated.  Sometimes I have initiated the peace process single handedly and invited others to participate.  Example is the Elders' conference in 1991.  The Wongben problem, we had to go to New Jersey a couple of times for reflection.  I was on the negotiation team that was headed by Gabriel Wehjilla to try
to resolve the problem between
Mr. Martin Dorlae and Charles
Weanquoi and Mohammed Keita.

MY PROPOSAL TO UNICCO
FOR CHANGE IN THE ELECTION PROCESS


Mr. Dokie,

I am sending this open letter to you and to your present administration with the hope that my proposal here will be forwarded to the correct sources that are responsible for making amendment to our constitution in order to change the present process we use in our election of National UNICCO Officers.

My statement is not just a one line request.  I have proposed what I wanted to be changed and the kind of system I want installed in its places.  I further pointed out the advantages of the new system I am proposing and what benefits we stand to gain if and when we use the system I am proposing.  I also outlined the pitfalls of the old system and why it is necessary to change that old sy
stem to the new one I am proposing.

My hope is that you and your colleagues will read the entire proposal from start to finish and debate on it and send it to the proper sources that will make the decision about its inclusion into our constitution.

Please keep me abreast with the process you wish to follow in making this become a reality.  Thank you very much.

My proposal can be found here on my website.  The reason for putting it on the website is to make it available for all to see and read whenever they wish to do so.  To make it accessible to all UNICCO members as well as to all your officers.  Easy access, whenever.
