    in Education

    In this episode of ODWIRA we examine our newly released book:


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


    In this book we address the origin of the term Hoodoo and the Hoodoo Religion brought to North america during the Mmusuo Kese (Great Perversity/Enslavement). Hoodoo was central to the wars of liberation which led to the end of slavery in North america. We elucidate the etymological and cosmological origins of the term and practice of Hoodoo from ancient Khanit and Kamit (Nubia and Egypt) through Akan culture in Ghana and Ivory Coast to North america.

  • AKANFO NANASOM: AKRADINBOSOM Pt. 1 - Abosom (Deities) of the 7-Day Akan Week

    in Education

    In this episode of AKANFO NANASOM - Ancient Authentic Akan Ancestral Religion, we begin our series on the AKRADINBOSOM. The Akradin Abosom are the Abosom (Akan for Deities) of the solar, lunar and planetary bodies which govern the 7-day Akan week. These Abosom (Deities) are also the Spirit-Forces which give Akan people our akradin or soul-names. Every Akan male and female receives a kradin (soul-name) based on the day of the week we are born. This is because the days of the week are governed by the Abosom who govern the solar, lunar or planetary bodies. Every Akan person's Okra or Okraa (Soul) is assigned to one of the Akradinbosom.


    We examine our publications:

    AKANFO NANASOM - Ancient Authentic Akan Ancestral Religion

    in Education

    In this episode of AKANFO NANASOM - Ancient Authentic Akan Ancestral Religion we address Akan identity as it relates to Akan cosmology. Our identity includes our founding Ancestral clans in Ancient Khanit (Nubia) and Kamit (Egypt) and our migrations to North and West Afuraka/Afuraitkait (Africa) and our forced migrations to North, Central, South america and the Caribbean during the Mmusuo Kese (Great Perversity/Enslavement era). Our traditions throughout these eras remained intact within the kra ne mogya (soul and blood) of our people and continues to be carried by us today wherever we exist in the world, including North america. We will examine our publications:

    AKANFO NANASOM: Ancient Authentic Akan Ancestral Religion: Oboade (Ptah)

    in Education

    In this episode of AKANFO NANASOM - Ancient Authentic Akan Ancestral Religion we address the identity, nature and function of Oboade, an Obosom (Deity) who is a Functionary of the Creator and Creatress of the Universe Nyankopon and Nyankonton (Ra and Rait). Oboade is called Ptah in ancient Kamit and Khanit. 


    The idea that Akan people are monotheistic is totally inaccurate. Moreover, Oboade is not a 'title' of Nyame (Amen) or Nyankopon (Ra). They are actually separate and distinct Deities. Many Akan people have been misinformed by priests/priestesses, 'elders/elderesses', scholars, linguists, etc. regarding the identity of Oboade because of a lack of actually communicating with and learning from Him. 


    We will examine our books:

    AKANFO NANASOM Ancient Authentic Akan Ancestral Religion: Odomankoma &Tweduampon

    in Education

    In this episode of AKANFO NANASOM - Ancient Authentic Akan Ancestral Religion we address the identity, nature and function of Odomankoma and Twereduampon, two Abosom (Deities) who are Functionaries of the Creator and Creatress of the Universe Nyankopon and Nyankonton (Ra and Rait). Odomankoma and Twereduampon are called Atem (Atum) and Khepra (Khepri) in ancient Kamit and Khanit. Moreover, these Abosom (Deities) are subordinate to Nyame and Nyamewaa - the Great Father and Great Mother who comprise the Supreme Being - called Amen and Amenet in Khanit and Kamit. 


    The idea that Akan people are monotheistic is totally inaccurate. Moreover, Odomankoma (Atem) and Twereduampon (Khepra) are not 'titles' of Nyame (Amen) or Nyankopon (Ra). They are actually separate and distinct Deities. Many Akan people have been misinformed by priests/priestesses, 'elders/elderesses', scholars, linguists, etc. regarding the identity of Odomankoma and Twereduampon because of a lack of actually communicating with and learning from them.

Nyamewaa and Nyame are called Amenet and Amen in ancient Khanit and Kamit (Nubia and Egypt).


    The idea that Akan people are monotheistic is totally inaccurate. Moreover, Nyankopon, Odomankoma, Oboade and Twereduampon are not 'titles' of Nyame. They are actually separate and distint Abosom (Deities) who are subordinate to and servants of Nyame. Many Akan people have been misinformed by priests/priestesses, 'elders/elderesses', scholars, linguists, etc. regarding the identity of Nyamewaa and Nyame because of a lack of actually communicating with and learning from Nyamewaa-Nyame.

They are called Amen and Amenet in Khanit and Kamit. Nyankopon and Nyankonton are called Ra and Rait in ancient Khanit and Kamit (Nubia and Egypt). The Creator and Creatress are subordinate to and servants of the Supreme Being.


    The idea that Akan people are monotheistic is totally inaccurate. Moreover, Nyankopon (Ra) is not a 'title' of Nyame (Amen). They are actually separate and distinct Deities.

    AKANFO NANASOM: Ancient Authentic Akan Ancestral Religion - The Abosom

    in Education

    In this episode of AKANFO NANASOM - Ancient Authentic Akan Ancestral Religion we address the nature and function of the Abosom. The Abosom are the Divine Spirit-Forces that animate Creation. They are the Children of Nyamewaa-Nyame (the Mother and Father Supreme Being). 


    We discuss the origin of the Abosom, how they manifested in ancient Khanit and Kamit (Nubia and Egypt) and how we carried them within our blood-circles as Akanfo to the various parts of the world we migrated to. This includes the forced-migration to the western hemisphere during the Mmusuo Kese (Great Perversity/Enslavement Era). Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African~Black) people - and only Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit people - have access to the Abosom wherever we exist in the world. They are assigned to us pre-incarnation.


    The Abosom in Akan culture are called Orisha in Yoruba culture, Vodou in Ewe and Fon culture, Arusi in Igbo culture and Ntrw/Ntrwt (Neteru/Netertu) in Kamit. We show how the term Ntr ('Neter') was and still is vocalized in Akan as Ntoro (un'-taw-raw).

    EGUA Marketplace: Independent Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit Communities - Gullah Wars

    in Education

    In this episode of EGUA Marketplace, we examine economic development in the context of independence and Amansesew - Nationbuilding/Restoration. We examine the Gullah Wars, often mislabeled the 'Seminole Wars'. Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) established their independence from enslavement and waged a military campaign against the united states government which lasted for decades. The Gullah Wars were a major factor in forcing the whites and their offspring to accept abolition and emancipation.

    ODWIRA: NETCHEM: Pleasure in the Spirit-Realm - Implications for Warfare

    in Education

    In this episode of ODWIRA, we address the nature of netchem (netchem), pleasure in the spirit-realm. The term netchem (nedjem, ndjem, ntem) in Khanit and Kamit, ode and odede in Akan, references 'sweet', 'sweetness', 'pleasure', etc. In Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religion and Culture we recognize the reality of life after the the event of death. The existence in the Ancestral realm is reflected in the dream-state. Just as we have pleasurable experiences in the dream-state, so do we have pleasurable experiences and can have a pleasurable life in the Ancestral realm. This reality is key with regard to the motivation to execute Revolution-Resolution.


    When Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) engage the Nananom Nsamanfo (Spiritually Cultivated Ancestresses and Ancestors) ritually, we come to recognize the kind of life they have and live in the Ancestral realm. For many potential akofo (warriors/warrioresses) the false notion that a pleasurable existence ends with physical death becomes the only roadblock towards their execution of Revolution-Resolution. However, once properly informed this roadblock is removed, for the misguided fear of death and its aftermath is eradicated. Such akofo are thus emboldened to execute Revolution-Resolution for they know that if they die in the process, they can have a pleasurable existence in the Ancestral realm which cannot be interrupted as long as they exist as Nananom Nsamanfo (Spiritually Cultivated Ancestresses and Ancestors).
