    ODUMAFO - Hoodoo Man & Hoodoo Woman: Akan Priests & Priestesses in Hoodoo

    in Education

    In this episode of ODWIRA, we correct the false notion that there are no priests and priestesses or a religious structure in Hoodoo. As we have proven in our books HOODOO PEOPLE and HOODOO MAYN Nhoma, the term Hoodoo is an Akan term. The Akan Ancestral Religion was brought to North america in the blood-circles of our people and has been maintained as Hoodoo. We examine the nature of the Odumafo, the Oduma - people, the class of healers/healeresses in Akan culture who would continue to be called the Hoodoo Man and Hoodoo Woman - Odu-mani (singular) and Odumafo (plural - Oduma-folks) in North america. This is an unbroken lineage of priesthood and priestesshood that is blood-inherited reaching back thousands of years through West Afuraka/Afuraitkait (Africa) to ancient Khanit (Nubia).

    Abibirifo - Berbers: Akan, Tuareg, Fula of Ancient Northwest Afuraka/Afuraitkait

    in Education

    In this episode of ODWIRA, we elucidate the identity of the Abibirifo - ancient Akan who migrated from ancient Khanit (Nubia) to West Afuraka/Afuraitkait (Africa), comprising the groups who are called Berbers inclusive of the Tuareg and Fula. Ancient Khanit (Nubia) was not only south of Kamit (Egypt) but also West of Kamit. The Tehenu of the 'Libyan Desert' are ancient Khanitu (Akan) giving rise to the populations manifest today as Akan, Tuareg, Fula and others.

    AKANFO NANASOM: From Khanit (Nubia) to Sumer - Akan Origin of the 7-Day Week

    in Education

    In this episode of AKANFO NANASOM, we examine the Akan origin of the 7-day week. Akan people originated in ancient Khanit (Nubia/Sudan). Thousands of years ago some of the Ancient Khanitu migrated north to settled what would become Kamit (Egypt). Some also migrated further north to establish the civlization which would later be called Sumer. The seven-day cycle based on the Abosom (Deities) who animate the solar, lunar and planetary bodies which govern the seven-day week, is foundational in Akan culture and is the basis of our ritual calendar. We demonstrate how these Abosom (Deities) are the same Abosom in Kamit - with the same names and descriptive titles. They are also the same Abosom (Deities) found in ancient Sumer.

  • OBRADWIRA: Akan 7-Day New Year Observance (Atem/Atemet Equinox) in Aakhuamuman

    in Education

    In this special episode of EGUA-Marketplace we examine our OBRADWIRA NANANOMSOM, our 7-Day New Year Observance which occurs this year from September 17-23 in Aakhuamuman Amaruka Atifi Mu (Akwamu Nation in North America). September 23rd is the Atem/Atemet Equinox and our New Year's Day - the first day of our year 13016.


    We examine the structure of our observance and the Divine Ancestral wisdom teachings associated with each of the 7 days. Each day of the week in Akan culture is governed by the Abosom (Deites) who animate the solar, lunar or planetary body which governs the day. The term Odwira means 'purification' and a 'celebration of purification' in the Akan language as well as our Ancestral language of Khanit and Kamit (Nubia and Egypt). The energy of each day of the week is aligned with the related Abosom and thus provides us an opportunity to ritually align ourselves with those Spirit-Forces that regulate Creation. This is how we purify our spirits in order to enter our New Year/Cycle with clarity and focus.

    AKANFO NANASOM: Akan Abosom of the 7 Day Week and the 7 Karkaru (Chakras)

    in Education

    In this episode of AKANFO NANASOM, we examine the seven karkaru (chakras) and their relationship to the Abosom (Deities) of the Akan 7-day week and also the seven spiritual senses. The Abosom Who animate the solar. lunar and planetery bodies which govern the Akan seven-day week are the same Abosom from ancient Khanit and Kamit (Nubia and Egypt) that we continue to invoke and worship today: Awusi, Adwoa, Bena, Abenaa, Awuku, Akua, Yaw, Yaa, Aaba, Afi and Amen Men (Ausar, Auset, Heru Behdety, Sekhmet, Set, Nebt Het, Heru, Wadjet, Nekhebet, Het Heru and Amen Men). All Akan people are named after one of these Abosom.


    The term 'chakra' is a corruption of the term 'karkar' from ancient Kamit. This term predates sanskrit by thousands of years. We examine the karkaru as shrines of Abosom (Deities/Orisa/Vodou) within the spirit-bodies of Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans~Black People).


    We examine our book and publication:

    ODWIRA: KRADA - Soul-day of Kwabena Akosan (Malcolm X) - Akan Perspective

    in Education

    In this episode of ODWIRA, we acknowledge the krada, the soul-day (Akan sacred day of birth), of Malcolm X. Malcolm X was born on a Benada (tuesday). If he were Akan he would have thus had the kradin (soul-name) Kwabena which designates him as a child of and thus governed by the Obosom (Deity) Bena. The Obosom Bena is called Heru Behudet in ancient Kamit and Khanit, Ogun in Yoruba, Ogu in Vodoun and Ikenga in Igbo. He is the Divine Force operating as the Divine Immune System in Creation. He is the Male Enforcer of Divine Order, governing hot metal, fire, war and the planet Bena ('mars') also called Heru Desher (The 'Red' Heru) in ancient Kamit. 


    We examine the nature of the character of Malcolm X, whom we refer to as Kwabena Akosan as it relates to his spiritual disposition - a disposition encoded within his sunsum (spirit) by Nyamewaa-Nyame (Amenet-Amen) the Supreme Being pre-incarnation and thus the spiritual disposition he came into the world with.

Also I also learned that change is also good,therefore todays show is all in Akan language from Ghana.  Some of the musicians includes, Sakodie, Shatta Wale, Castro and so on.  We will also play Niageria music too, such as Flavor, Davido and Wizkid.

    AKOMFOWA: Initiation in Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Culture

    in Education

    In this episode of EGUA - Marketplace, we examine the nature of initiation in Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Culture. Akomfowa are defined as intitates in Akan culture. The proper definition and function of initiation is always connected to the Abosom (Deities) who we are connected to by blood and our Nananom Nsamanfo (Spiritually Cultivated Ancestresses and Ancestors) of our direct blood-circle as Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African~Black) peopl. This includes initiations into various forms of priesthood, priestesshood, male and female sacred societies, manhood and womanhood training (rites of passage), rulership (kingship, queenship, etc.) and more. True initiation has no counterpart in the society of the whites and their offspring. This includes their pseudo-religious, pseudo-esoteric, masonic, fraternal, sororal and pseudo-metaphysical organizations. 'Blackened' versions of these white pseudo-initatic organizations are nothing more than imitations of empty ritual.
