The Aakhuamu (Akwamu) people are a sub-group of the Akan (ah-kahn') ethnic group who live primarily in the West Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (West African) countries of Ghana and Ivory Coast. There are over 20,000,000 Akan people in Afuraka/Afuraitkait (Africa). Yet, there are millions of Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) in the americas, the Caribbean and europe who are of direct Akan Ancestry as well---physically/genetically and spiritually.
Millions of Akan people were captured as prisoners of war in Afuraka/Afuraitkait (Africa) and were subsequently forced into enslavement in the western hemisphere. Once in the americas and the Caribbean, many of us freed ourselves from enslavement permanently by taking up arms, killing the white slavers, killing the family and staff of the white slavers and burning down the plantations. We would then migrate to certain areas and establish independent, sovereign nations. Many of these independent, sovereign nations lasted for generations up to and beyond the end of "legalized" slavery.
It was/is the indomitable Okra/Okraa (aw-krah'/aw-krah'-ah), soul, of the Akan that directed us to listen to the guidance of our Nananom Nsamanfo (Honorable Ancestresses and Ancestors) and the Abosom (Goddesses and Gods/Divine Spirit-Forces in Nature) for this guidance was/is the expression and impression of Nyamewaa-Nyame Nhyehyee (Goddess-God/The Supreme Being's Order~Divine Order). We would then incorporate that guidance in the form of directives for action in order to free ourselves from enslavement, re-establish our sovereignty and maintain our sovereignty. This indomitable soul is carried by the Akan in the western hemisphere today who have found out (and those who will soon find out) who they are. It can never be extinguished.

Aakhuamuman Amaruka Atifi mu
recognizes the reality that only the re-embracing of our own Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral culture, which includes most critically our own Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religion, restores our normalcy as Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) people. This re-embracing is the conscious re-establishment of our identity, and it is the re-establishment of our identity which is the foundation of our sanity, our stability in Creation. Moreover, it is the basis of our capacity to execute complete social, economic, political and spiritual liberation from our absolute enemies---the whites and their offspring (all white europeans, white americans, white arabs, white indians, white asians, white hispanics, white latinos/latinas, white pseudo-"native" americans, etc.-- without exception, living and deceased)
, their culture and their pseudo(false)-religions. Our Amammere
(Culture) and Nanasom
(Religion) comprise the foundation of Amansesew
The members of Aakhuamuman Amaruka Atifi mu
are descendants, physically/genetically and
spiritually, of 1) Akwamu-Akan
Ancestresses and Ancestors who were 2) enslaved in North America or entered North America during the period of enslavement to locate, fight for and liberate their kin and other Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans). The major Aakhuamuman akyenaboa
(sacred animals; "totems") are gyata/gyata-bere, nanka
(lion/lioness, puff adder, crocodile and hawk). Additionally, as Akan
people, the re-embracing of our culture necessarily includes our most ancient Ancestral cultural expressions made manifest by our Ancestresses and Ancestors in their/our civilizations of ancient Keneset
(Nubia and Egypt).
The Abosom Ra and Apedemak from the Temple of Apedemak in Khanit (Nubia)
The Akan term oman
thus means Akwamu Nation
. We use the spelling Aakhuamuman
which reflects the ancient spelling of the name in the metutu
, the hieroglyphic writing
created by our Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestresses and Ancestors tens of thousands of years ago in ancient Khanit and Kamit - the foundation of all written scripts in the world. It also reflects our unique identity and heritage as Aakhuamufo
), Akwamu people
, who waged war to end enslavement in Amaruka (america) and will continue as we participate in ahofadi
, for Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) as a collective. We have thus re-established our Ancient Authentic Ancestral Amannee
(traditions) under the guidance of Nyamewaa-Nyame
, through the agency of the Abosom
and our Nananom Nsamanfo
. It is our Aakhuamufo Nananom Nsamanfo
, our direct-blood Akwamu Ancestresses and Ancestors
, who have concretized our identity as a people and an oman
(nation) and form the basis for Aakhuamuman Amaruka Atifi Mu
, for it was our Aakhuamufo Nananom Nsamanfo
who guided us to liberation from enslavement and continue to guide our efforts today.
Our direct blood Nananom Nsamanfo
include those Aakhuamu
who originated in ancient Khanit
, also called Keneset
(Ancient Nubia), at the beginning of human existence upon Asaase
(Earth) as a component of the larger group of Akanfo
(Akan people). This is the region of contemporary Sudan and South Sudan in the Eastern region of Afuraka/Afuraitkait (Africa). We eventually migrated around the world. Some Akanfo migrated north of Khanit
and settled ancient Kamit
(ancient Egypt), while others remained in Khanit. Over the millennia, Akanfo migrated to West Afuraka/Afuraitkait (West Africa) establishing the ancient civilization of Akana
(Khanat - Ghana). Some Akanfo were also a component of the Kanem
empire (pre-Bornu), the original/authentic Black Berber empire (Abibiri-fo
) and the Kong
empire (Kan) before ultimately migrating to and settling in the areas of contemporary Ghana (Akana) and Ivory Coast. Our Aakhuamufo Nananom Nsamanfo
would eventually form Akwamuman (Akwamu Nation)
as an empire over 300 years ago in the region of contemporary Ghana. During the wars which occurred between rival Akan aman
(nations) including those who were at war with europeans, some of our Aakhuamufo Nananom Nsamanfo
were captured as prisoners of war and dislocated to the western hemisphere during the Mmusuo Kese (Great perversity/enslavement)
Akanfo in general as well as Aakhuamufo (Akwamufo) in particular became known in the western hemisphere for organizing military operations, waging war against the white slavers and liberating ourselves and other Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) from enslavement. Our military operations included armed resistance: acquisition of firearms and other weaponry
and also waging chemical and biological warfare against the white slavers: Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) men and women on plantations poisoning the food and water supply of the whites in order to kill them and open the way for our liberation from the plantations.
It was because of our relentless military operations that Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) as a collective - designated as ODWIRAMAN - forced the end of enslavement in the western hemisphere. Our Aakhuamufo Nananom Nsamanfo made significant contributions toward this accomplishment.
It is from these Aakhuamufo Nananom Nsamanfo
- our direct-blood Ancestresses and Ancestors who guided us in every generation throughout Mmusuo Kese, fought for and achieved liberation and who remain with us and continue to guide us today
- that we derive our authority to reestablish Aakhuamuman Amaruka Atifi Mu
as an independent sovereign nation.
As with our Aakhuamufo Nananom Nsamanfo
of the past, Aakhuamuman Amaruka Atifi Mu
is at the forefront of the war for the total religious, cultural, social, economic, political liberation of the Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans~Black People) in america and worldwide.
The image on the home page is an image of Owia
, the Sun, manifesting heightened atmospheric activity often referred to as "solar flares" or a "solar storm". It is a fitting image, for it is through such heightened activity of Owia
that the solar fire not only nourishes but purifies by burning-out/disintegrating impurities.
, in the Twi
language of the Akan
means 'purification' and also 'a celebration of purification'. This term has its origins in the language of ancient Khanit and Kamit. Thus the ancient term Twra
as written in the medutu
(hieroglyphs) means 'purification' and also a 'celebration of purification.'
