AFURAKA/AFURAITKAIT - The Origin of the term 'Africa' 

Excerpt from the Introduction to this publication:

"...Numerous scholars over the centuries have attempted to delineate the etymological origins of the name Africa. However, they have failed because of a lack of understanding of Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religion, cosmology and culture. Odwirafo Kwesi Ra Nehem Ptah Akhan is the first to elucidate and publish the actual etymological origins of the name Africa demonstrating the name to be derived linguistically and cosmologically from Afuraka/Afuraitkait - the original male and female aspects of the name. This includes showing the actual term written by our Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestresses and Ancestors in the medutu (hieroglyphs) of Ancient Kamit (Ancient Egypt) - a discovery which heretofore had never been accomplished. Afuraka/Afuraitkait is an indigenous designation for the continent first propounded by Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans~Black People) prior to the existence of any other people on Earth..." 

We will demostrate the Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) origins of the term 'Africa' and the cosmological infrastructure which gave birth to the term. We will also demonstrate that the various etymologies put forward by the whites and their offspring (and misinformed Black authors) including those related to greek, latin, phoenician, arabic, sanskrit, et. al. roots are actually corruptions of terms from ancient Kamit.

We will also demonstrate for the first time the etymology of the term Alkebulan which is not an ancient indigenous term for the continent. Additionally, we address the often repeated fallacy that Scipio Africanus or Leo Africanus named the continent.
