Lizzie Isaacs and Todd Joles, recently recognized the truth that they constructed this HATE site against me and Natalia Ivend: https://nataliaivend.com/about/indo-rom-vidalya-school/
The two have admitted on the Facebook page of Ronald Lee, a famous Roma activist from Canada https://www.facebook.com/ronald.lee.3914/posts/10212290037628204?comment_id=10212318741585785¬if_id=1533572248025684¬if_t=feed_comment_reply
Now, i want to answer properly to Lizzie Isaacs and Todd Joles. They are saying on their site:
”Academia is for researchers and scholars who have dedicated our life’s work to the preservation of our histories, cultures and representation within institutions- neither Natalie or Baro has done that. Academia actually encourages debate and exchange of ideas, even when those ideas exist at opposite ends of the spectrum. ”
I have to remind to Lizzie Isaacs and Todd Joles that is an universal right guaranteed by law in the Declaration of Human Rights, to establish schools and even Academias.
”In laymen’s terms, they are not qualified and that is why they are not being invited to present anywhere.”
Mister Todd Joles and Ms. Lizzie Isaacs, i am a Rom. We have other Laws, and our laws are called Romani Kris. After our Romani laws, the Gaje has no right to give us degrees and diplomas in our Romani language and History. Why? Because they do dont know our dialects. Our dialects are many, and are known only by us. The History of Roma is written in our dialects. The non-Roma researchers dont know from home our dialects.
In the International Law, we read: art. 27
The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, on the rights of persons belonging to minorities - maintaining and developing your own culture, in all its aspects, including traditions and customs.
stabilizing and maintaining their own educational, cultural and religious institutions, organizations and associations.
- participation in cultural life, access to the culture of majority and other minorities, to universal culture.

Here is the page from the book i quoted
Mister Todd Joles and Ms. Lizzie Isaacs, after you see I, as a Roma i have the right to establish any form of cultural institution.
”However, for those of us who do understand the protocols, methods and requirements to be an academic and have attained them, who are actively striving to add our own histories to the body of knowledge within institutions, and who are dedicating our lives to preserving and presenting our community’s collective knowledge, in a way which is acknowledged as academically appropriate, for these two to also state a claim as being part of “academia” in any sense is absurd, repulsive and wretched.
Being a hated liar is not a “sign of being famous” unless your goal is to be known as a notorious cultural appropriator- on that count the fame is growing fast for both Natalie and her lapdog Baro.”
Mister Todd Joles and Ms. Lizzie Isaacs, are you kind to tell us who are those academics who gave their life for my Romani language and culture? You meant Ian Hancock, the non-Roma, who dont knows my Romani Wlax dialect, but had the guts to write a grammar called A handbook of Vlax Romani, full with grammar errors? Here you can see his errors: http://confluente.org/marian_nutu_carpaci_1493879499.html http://confluente.org/marian_nutu_carpaci_1517903515.html
Or maybe you wanted to mention the name of Marcel Courthiade, a non-Roma, who destroyed my Kalderash dialect? Here is my researching showing his mistakes: http://confluente.org/marian_nutu_carpaci_1485274848.html
The alphabet invented by Marcel Courthiade who is filling his pockets?http://confluente.org/marian_nutu_carpaci_1496959794.html
”In an effort to overcome this, during the 1980s and 1990s Marcel Courthiade proposed a model for orthographic unification based on the adoption of a meta-phonological orthography, which „would allow dialectal variation to be accommodated at the phonological and morpho-phonological level”. This system was presented to the International Romani Union in 1990, who adopted it as the organization’s „official alphabet”. This recognition by the International Romani Union allowed Courthiade’s system to qualify for funding from the European Commission.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romani_alphabets
Or, maybe you wanted to mention the name of Yaron Matras who wrote an article called
”Over the past year negotiations have been taking place between the Council of Europe and a small group of activists who claimed the title “Roma elite”. Backed by the Open Society Foundations (OSF), the formidable civil society enterprise led by billionaire philanthropist George Soros, the group drew up plans for a European Roma Institute (ERI). It would, they said, “license” research on Romani culture and ensure that the dissemination of information on Europe’s largest ethnic minority would be “Roma-led”.”http://blogs.lse.ac.uk/europpblog/2015/04/16/why-plans-for-a-european-roma-institute-might-be-a-setback-for-europes-roma/
You two, Todd Joles and Lizzie Isaacs are frightened as Yaron Matras do, by the CULTURAL POWER of NATIVE ROMANI SPEAKERS!
Todd Joles and Lizzie Isaacs are saying:
”The “school” itself is nothing more than an online facade meant to make both Natalie and Baro feel and look important. Many times both individuals have been asked if this school will be accredited? This is very important. Having accreditation demonstrates that the school has met national standards, in whichever country it is incorporated in, requiring minimum standards of quality.”
Mr Todd Joles and Ms Lizzie Isaacs, if non-Roma schools have an erroneous doctrine about Roma culture, then we, Roma, need to set up our own schools. That is why I set Indo-Romani Vidyalaya. But you two are not native Romani language speakers and you can not see the errors of Ian Hancock, Marcel Courthiade or Yaron Matras.
Todd Joles and Lizzie Isaacs YOU ARE LIARS, because you are saying:
„Founding of the Indo-Romani Vidyalaya “School”
Using the school as front to gain access to funding ear-marked for Romani programs to use as they see fit for themselves, Natalie and Baro have founded the Indo-Romani Vidyalaya “School”, an online Facebook page with 150 followers and no content. Allegedly, Natalie stated that this school will be for learning about Romani culture.”
The Indo-Romani Vidyalaya NEVER asked money from a State or other international NGOS.
Todd Joles and Lizzie Isaacs (in photo), my dialect is not broken, as you are saying. I am a native Romani Kalderash speakers, i was instructed in my dialect by my grandparents, Zurka and Mezinka, Iordana and grand-grand mother Elisabeta. I am very known in Romania as the best Romani speaker. In the next lines you lie:
”Yet to date he has only released videos of himself speaking a broken dialect of “Romani” and several papers where he disparages “Kashtale” (see below). He also has yet to produce any official documentation from any accredited university showing his credentials. He has yet to produce any published manuscripts in a peer-reviewed journal. His only “works” are online rambling papers detailing his personal vendetta against Marcel Courthiade and Gheorghe Sarău, among many many others. Like Natalie, his papers lack the format, content or academic rigor required of a scholarly work.”
I have published a book of universal poetry translated in Romani, and 130 articles about the Tsigani and Romani history. My book was published by the Romanian Government, and is called Roma Gileande Gazende. I translated Rig Veda, the hymn CLXXXIV to Agni, the poems about Roma written by Francois Villon, Charles Baudelaire, Vasile Alecsandri, Alexandr Pushkin (his long poem The Gypsies), Guillame Apollinaire, Mihai Eminescu (99 stanzas, the longest love poem in the world!, i worked 20 years to translate it. In Romanian culture is the most important LOVE POEM, is called Luceafărul. In our history, the Roma were not able to translate this poem Luceafărul, beacause is very hard to translate, here you can read it http://confluente.org/marian_nutu_carpaci_1462450225.html), Federico Garcia Lorca. I published scientific articles on Roma culture in the Yearbook of Prahova County Society for General Anthropolog, well-known publication.
My 130 articles from http://www.confluente.org changed for eternity the history of Romani nation. But, you two are reading ONLY what the Gaje are writting about the Roma. http://confluente.org/articole/marian_nu%C5%A3u_c%C3%A2rpaci
I was invited at National Television shows about Roma culture. Here is the complet list with the TV shows and Radio shows were i was invited
Todd Joles i invite you to put on youtube a sample of your dialect and of your precious face. I invite you too, Ms. Lizzie Isaacs to do the same, i want to see you speaking your BROKEN dialect.
And, in the end of my article i will answer to your idiot slave-like ideeas:
”Just as within our own cultures, there are protocols that must be followed by people who are serious about entering the world of academia; protocols that they just don’t want to follow or have dismissed as being “gadjikano”. The truth is, that neither of their credentials can pass muster and because of this, neither of them have been invited to present anything because they are not researchers, academics or professionals of any kind in the field of Romani Studies.”
You two have a slave behavior obedient to non-Roma systems. You two demonstrate that you are brainwashed by protocols of non-Roma university professors who do not know our dialects and have no humility, but just want to live well, saying the lie that they help the Roma. Are you able to describe the academic protocols invented by you? What Romani Culture Do You Have? You are not Roma, your dialects no longer exist. You are Gaje and you lick Gaje's diplomas, such as Yaron Matras or Ian Hancock
Who is Todd Joles?
He is a Kashtalo, or a basket-maker, not a Roma, i know it from his confession presented by himself on his Facebook page. His grandfather used to make baskets. Todd Joles is living in California, Oceanside, Chippewa Falls.
