In this episode of AKANFO NANASOM, we examine the origin of the rabbit's foot talisman in Hoodoo. In our book HOODOO PEOPLE, we prove conclusively that the Hoodoo Religion is the Akan Religion in North america brought in the blood-circles of the Akan people who were forced into the North america during the Mmusuo Kese (Great Perversity/Enslavement era).

The Akan terms Ndu (oohn-dooh), Kankye (kahn-cheh), Hwinti (hoo-weent) we have demonstrated to be vocalized as Hoodoo, Conjure and Haint in North america with the same meanings intact today. We have shown that the Akan term Oduma-fo (Oduma - folks/people) the 'medicine giving folks', 'rootworking folks/people' continues to be vocalized as Hoodooman (Oduma) and Hoodoowoman or 'rootworking folks/people' - the priest/priestess, healer/healeress class in North america. These terms can also be found in our ancient Ancestral Akan language of Khanit and Kamit (Nubia and Egypt) with the same meanings. 

The same is true of ritual practices. The cosmological foundation giving birth to the use of the rabbit's foot as a talisman of healing and protection is found in Akan culture. The Adanko (hare - rabbit and hare in North america) in is literally a rootworker and diviner in Akan culture. This is also true of Ancient Khanit and Kamit. The healing and protection function of the use of asuman (talismans) have implications for warfare against our enemies.

We examine our books:
