SORT BY Relevancy
As African Kutawanyika, not only have we been removed from our place of origin, traditions, culture, language, and spirituality, but we have been removed from our actual selves. The original people are no longer original in any sense. We desperately want to be as the descendents of those who kidnapped and brutally torchered and killed our Ancestors, and systematically destroyed us as a people, even to this day.
In order to return to the brilliant people we once were, we must reconnect with ourselves. In order to make this reconnection we must reach out and communicate with our African Ancestors who are not only with us, but are within us genetically. The Ancestors are very real and present. we are the sum total of all who have come before us. Let us reconnect.
