Miss Asta – Mama Asta – Queen Mother Culture Bearer!
Miss Asta is a keeper of the cultural traditions and heritage of St. Croix! Born at Estate Concordia and raised in the town of Frederiksted, Miss Asta Williams was raised in Nesbit yard by her loving mother, Roselyn James, and her father, Daniel Hanley. They taught her the value of the culture.
“My parents raised me to know about my culture when it came to food and clothing and music, and all of our local customs – all that we do and live and thrive on as Virgin Islanders – specifically our Crucian culture.”
