In this episode of ODWIRA, we address the nature of Locative Identity and the Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religious Community within Odwiraman - Purified Nation - Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African~Black) People in the Western Hemisphere.

All Black people in the western hemisphere have our roots in Afuraka/Afuraitkait (Africa) without exception. As we migrated or were forced to migrate away from Afuraka/Afuraitkait (Africa) we carried our Ancestral Religion and Culture with us in our blood-circles. As we interface with the region of Asaase Afua (Earth Mother) upon which we dwell we develop a locative identity, rooted in our Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) identity, yet expressed in a unique fashion. This unique expression includes Ancestral Religious practice, initiation and more. We are not dependent upon anyone outside of our direct Ancestral blood-circles to legitimize our Ancestral Religious practices. Indeed, it is cosmologically impossible.

Travelling to, studying within or repatriating to Afuraka/Afuraitkait (Africa) does not confer Ancestral knowledge upon the individual. Our Ancestral Religion and Culture is transmitted and received transcarnationally - through our Ancestral blood-circles. Our unique expression of Ancestral Religion rooted in our locative identity is primary with regard to our capacity to establish and maintain spiritual and communal balance within Odwiraman - Purified Nation of Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) in the West. 

We examine our book:
