I want to explore the question "where are you from?"
What does it mean to be from somewhere?
When you say "this is my land, these are my trees", what does the possessive adjective imply?
How do the land and our ancestors make us more or less connected to specific places?
How are "home" and "to be from somewhere" connected?
How the socio-political implications change according to whom the question is addressed to and who asks the question. For example: "where are you from" asked to non-white immigrants -- "but where are you from from?"
