While reclaiming one's true identity, it can be helpful look at the similarities within the Pan African and indigenous traditions for clarity. One beautiful tradition that originated with the Bantu people from Swaziland is the Sangoma tradition.
Typically the diviners of this tradition are known to use bones to understand what the energies are telling them. This tradition, like so many Afrakan or indigenous traditions, respect the power of the feminine in that it is typically ran by women. So great are their prowess, the women were seen as the protectors of the village. Though men are certainly allowed to be diviners in this tradition.
The Sangoma are master astral travelers. This is because much of spiritual work and answers comes from the being possessed by the lidlotis or honored ancestors.
The interesting thing about their connection to the lidlotis is that these ancestors are not necessarily from their own blood line but it is whichever lidlotis wants to work with them.
This is a practice to take note because not every relative that died wants the responsibility of an honored ancestor and do not want work with you. You may be giving libations and praying to an Aunt that just likes to smoke and will not tell you a thing.
