In this episode of AKANFO NANASOM - Ancient Authentic Akan Ancestral Religion, we examine the nature of the Mojo and Jack Ball in Hoodoo. As we have demonstrated in our publications HOODOO PEOPLE, HOODOO MAYN and AKYISAN, the Hoodoo tradition in North america is the Akan Ancestral Religion brought in the blood-circles of our Ancestresses and Ancestors during the Mmusuo Kese (Great Perversity/Enslavement era). It would only be hundreds of years later that the Akan term Hoodoo would be used generically to reference all Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African~Black) ritual practices. 

Mojo and Jack are the Akan terms Mogya (moh'-jah) and Agya (eh-jah). We demonstrate the ritual nature of the mogya and agyapade which was maintained as the mojo and jack ball in Hoodoo.

We examine our publications:

HOODOO PEOPLE: Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) in North America - Akan Custodians of Hoodoo from Ancient Hoodoo/Udunu Land (Khanit/Nubia)

HOODOO MAYN - Hoodoo Nation Nhoma (Journal)

AKYISAN - Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religious Reversion Nhoma (Journal)
