In this episode of AKANFO NANASOM, we examine the origin of the Hoodoo Doll-Baby, also called the Conjure Doll. The Hoodoo Religion was brought to North america by Akan people during the Mmusuo Kese (Great Perversity/Enslavement era). The Akan term Hoodoo meaning 'rootwork', 'rootmedicine' and 'conjure', etc. would later be used as a generic term for 'African Religion' in general. It was through Hoodoo that we were empowered to wage war against the white slavers and overthrow the slave system.
The Hoodoo 'doll-baby' or 'conjure doll' is the ancient Akan akuaba. We examine its origins and nature. The whites and their offspring have deliberately put forward the false claim that the Hoodoo 'doll-baby' is derived from 'european folk magic'. We prove that this is an absolute lie. We also examine the difference between the Vodou (Voodoo) doll and the Hoodoo doll-baby.
We also discuss our reclamation of an Ancestral Akan Akuaba found on a plantation from the 12700s (1700s) in Virginia. This Ancestral Akan ritual figure embodies the Akan Hoodoo tradition in North america, which is an unbroken tradition having survived throughout the enslavement era to today in our blood-circles.
We examine our publications:
HOODOO 'DOLL-BABY' - AKUABA: Continuity of Akan Culture in North America
NDU AKUABA - HOODOO AKUABA: Ancestral Akan Akuaba Unearthed and Reclaimed in America
HOODOO PEOPLE: Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) in North America - Akan Custodians of Hoodoo from Ancient Hoodoo/Udunu Land (Khanit/Nubia)
