NANASOM [nah-nah' sohm] is an Ancestrally-derived term encompassing the reality of Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religion. Its etymological roots can be found in ancient Afuraka/Afuraitkait (Africa), in the language and cosmology of ancient Khanit (Keneset) and Kamit (Nubia and Egypt) - the parent language of various Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) language families on the continent today. Nanasom can thus be utilized as a universal term for Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religion in its varied expressions in Afuraka/Afuraitkait (Africa) as well as outside of Afuraka/Afuraitkait (Africa) wherever Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African~Black) people can be found. Below, we begin by defining Nanasom in the Akan language and then trace its roots, linguistically and cosmologically, to Khanit and Kamit which according to our Ancestresses and Ancestors was established over 40,000 years ago [See King's list of the sheft (papyrus) misnomered the 'Turin Royal Canon']. We then define the nature and function of Nanasom. We also have links to the four issues of our AFURAKA/AFURAITKAIT NANASOM NHOMA - Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit Ancestral Religion Journal and our other publications and videos.
In the Twi language of the Akan people of Ghana and Ivory Coast, Nana is a gender-neutral title representing the highest office in society. It is also a term used to denote Grandmother, Grandfather, Elderess, Elder, venerable Ancestress and venerable Ancestor.
Nana is further defined in MATE MASIE The Ancestorhood of Nana Yao by Kwesi Ra Nehem Ptah Akhan:
"...Nana (nah-nah') is a term used in Akan culture describing the highest office attainable in society by an individual. Often translated as Elder or Elderess, the term embodies much more. A Nana in Akan culture is one who has mastered life---one who has recognized, embraced and executes the Divine function they were given by the Supreme Being to execute in the world. A Nana is one who participates in the ritual incorporation of Divine Law and the ritual restoration of Divine Balance, the essence of Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religion. The qualities of wisdom and intelligence, those qualities which enable one to understand what to accept and what to reject, what to love and what to hate, the difference between Order and disorder and how to function in life accordingly, are embodied by the Nana in Akan culture. The Nana is one who harmoniously negotiates the needs of the individual with the needs of the group in society. This is executed with a keen eye on the development and preservation of the whole. Rooted in an in-depth understanding of the function (destiny) of the individual and the function of the Clan as they relate to our place in Creation, the Nana naturally becomes an example for others to emulate.
Nana is a title given to individuals, male or female, who embody these principles. Yet, the title is first and foremost part of the title of the Supreme Being. Nyame (God) is often called Nana Nyame and Nyamewaa (Goddess) is often called Nana Nyamewaa. The Akan, as well as all Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) cultures have a proper understanding of the nature of the Supreme Being as consisting of the Great Father and the Great Mother functioning together as One Divine Unit. In Akan culture the various Abosom (Deities/Divine Forces of Nature--Children of the Supreme Being) also carry the title Nana. The same is true of the Honored Ancestresses and Ancestors, or Nananom Nsamanfo---Those who sit at the "feet" of the Great Mother and the Great Father in the spirit world now, because they lived in harmony with the Great Mother and the Great Father while they lived on Earth. They were/are therefore endowed by Nyamewaa-Nyame (the Supreme Being) with the power to assist and guide their descendants on Earth in the present, as we sometimes lose our way.
The title Nana carries great weight, even Divine qualities, thus only those who have demonstrated their worthiness of this title are properly addressed as such. Fundamentally, they have become part of a Divine community after having attained a certain level of spiritual cultivation..."
The Twi term som means: to serve. The term Nanasom thus means: to serve Nana; the service of Nana. This encompasses the reality of Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religion, for our Greatest Ancestress and our Greatest Ancestor, our Greatest Grandmother and our Greatest Grandfather, our Greatest Elderess and our Greatest Elder as Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit people is Nana Nyamewaa and Nana Nyame. As "cells" within the Great Divine "Body" of The Supreme Being, Nyamewaa-Nyame, Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) function only to serve the Great Divine Whole of Whom we are an integral part, just as the many living cells operating within your body function only to serve the whole (you) of whom they are an integral part.
When we attune ourselves to the power and consciousness of the Abosom (Deities), Whom are also Nananom (plural of Nana), we are in the service of Nana Nyamewaa and Nana Nyame. When we follow the guidance of the Nananom Nsamanfo (Spiritually Cultivated Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit Ancestresses and Ancestors) we are in the service of Nana Nyamewaa and Nana Nyame. This is Nanasom and it is translatable linguistically and conceptually into all Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit languages.
The term Nana is a reduplication of the root na. In the Twi language, the root 'na' is defined as that which is rare, precious; ancient (Ancestry), great. The Twi language is derived of our Ancestral language of ancient Khanit (Keneset) and Kamit (Nubia and Egypt). We therefore find that in the metutu (hieroglyphics) the term na means: great, greatness; benevolence. The related term naanu means good, beautiful while nanu means 'grains' or 'seeds'.
We also find that the term sm (som) means: a deed or undertaking; a custom, a practice; to ritually provoke, to ritually place offerings on an altar.
Thus in our ancient Ancestral language these terms also describe an undertaking, custom and practice of ritual invocation and ritual offering (service) to They Who are good, beautiful, great, benevolent: our Nananom Nsamanfo, the seed people, the Abosom the seed Forces/Divinities of Creation, and Nana Nyamewaa and Nana Nyame (Amenet and Amen) - They who seeded all. These are the ancient conceptual and phonetic roots of the term and nature of Nanasom, for Khanit (Keneset) and Kamit are the roots of Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religious inheritance.
All Black People--and only Black People--wherever we exist in the world are Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) and share in these linguistic and cultural roots. Authentic religious expressions of Khanit and Kamit are therefore manifest only through our varied Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) ethnicities including, but not limited to: Akan, Yoruba, Ewe, Fon, Igbo, Bakongo, Bambara, Dogon, Goromantche, Nguni, Sotho, Khoikhoi, San, Dinka, Gikuyu, Lemba, Temne, Bassa, Fula, Fang, Mande, Azande, Afar, Oromo, Batswana, Ovambo, Ovimbundu, Maasai, Chokwe, Wolof, Twa, Lobi, Ibibio, Edo, Krobo, Guan, Ga, Tamil (Black India), Xi (Olmec - Ancient america) and all others.
We can therefore speak of Nanasom in its varied expressions: Akanfo Nanasom, Yoruba Nanasom, Ewe Nanasom, Fon Nanasom, Dogon Nanasom, Kongo Nanasom, Fula Nanasom, Fang Nanasom, Lozi Nanasom, Nguni Nanasom, Ndebele Nanasom, Maasai Nanasom, Oromo Nanasom, etc. Expressions of Nanasom also exist in North, Central and South Amaruka (america) and the Caribbean including the various forms of Hoodoo, Voodoo, Juju and more practiced by Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) in the South, Southeastern, Eastern and Northeastern united states which empowered us to bring an end to the Mmusuo Kesee (Great perversity/enslavement era).
Nanasom is a spiri-genetic inheritance incarnate within the kra ne mogya, the soul and blood, of all Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans). It therefore naturally reveals itself via our thoughts, behavior and culture everywhere we have migrated to and/or settled on Asaase Afua (The Earth Mother).
Nanasom is properly defined in essence as: the ritual incorporation of Divine Law and the ritual restoration of Divine Balance. Through ritual we, as Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut, incorporate those things, objects, deeds and entities, necessary for us to harmonize our every thought, intention and action with Nyamewaa-Nyame Nhyehyee (The Supreme Being's Order/Divine Order) and through ritual we, as Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut, restore balance to our lives when imbalance occurs.
Before birth, Nyamewaa-Nyame gives each and every Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) individual an nkra/nkrabea, a Divine function, to execute within Creation, just as each cell in the body is created and designed to execute a specific function in order to serve the body as a whole. The only way for us to fulfill our nkra/nkrabea, the only way to execute our Divinely alloted function (so-called "destiny") in Creation, is to incorporate the laws undergirding that function into our consciousness and to restore balance through re-alignment when we find that we have stepped outside of our alloted role. We must establish and perpetuate Order in our daily functioning through incorporation and we must eradicate disorder through restoration. This can only be realized through a proper understanding of our interdependent relationship with the Abosom and Nananom Nsamanfo.
As an Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit, your physical body is dependent on the minerals within Asaase Afua (Earth), the waters of Opo/Epo (Ocean) and Asuo (Rivers), the Mframa (Wind) in the Atmosphere, the heat and energy of the Owia (Sun), the energy of the Bosom (Moon) and other aspects of Nature for physical sustenance, physical health and physiological balance.
In the same manner your sunsum, your spirit, as an Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit is dependent on the Asunsum, the Spirits, operating through these various energic-vessels of Nature for spiritual sustenance, spiritual health and spiritual balance. The Spirits operating through Nature/Creation are the Abosom (Goddesses and Gods; Deities). They are the Children of Nyamewaa and Nyame (Amenet and Amen in the language of Keneset and Kamit). These Divine Spirit-Forces in Creation called Abosom in Akan culture are called Orisha in Yoruba culture, Vodou in Ewe and Fon culture, Arusi in Igbo culture, etc. They are Spirits operating through physical vessels/bodies, just as you are a spirit operating through a physical vessel/body. The Abosom are Conscious, Reasoning, Living-Entities Who give us the power and consciousness to execute our function in the world. They empower and en-conscious us, always under the direction of Nyamewaa-Nyame.
The Nananom Nsamanfo are those of our Ancestresses and Ancestors Who had achieved the societal office of Nana while living on Asaase Afua. They are those spiritually-cultivated Mpanyinfo (Elders/Elderesses) who were referred to as Nananom Mpanyinfo, Honorable Elders and Elderesses, during their life-times. When they made the transition to Asamando (the Ancestral realm) via Death, They became Nananom Nsamanfo, the Spirits (Nsamanfo) of those who are Honorable/Venerable/Spiritually Cultivated (Nananom).
Those Who comprise the class of Nananom Nsamanfo are endowed by Nyamewaa-Nyame with the power and responsibility to assist Their relatives still living on Asaase Afua in our lives. The Nananom Nsamanfo show us how to utilize the power and consciousness given to us by the Abosom in a manner that is in harmony with our specific blood-circle. Just as the cells in the body function in, are nourished by and cleansed within a watery medium, so are we as cells supported, nourished and cleansed by the Nananom Nsamanfo (water cells), Whom also form part of the Divine Organs and Structures (Deities) within the Great Divine Body/Whole/System of Nyamewaa-Nyame. The Nananom Nsamanfo are called the Egungun in Yoruba culture, the Kuvito in Ewe and Fon culture, the Mmuo in Igbo culture, etc.
Okra (aw-krah') and Okraa (aw-kra'-ah) are the male and female terms for the soul. The Okra within Afurakani males and Okraa within Afuraitkaitnit females is our Divine Consciousness. It is a drop from the Ocean of Soul/Divine Consciousness/Intelligence which is the Okraa and Okra of Nyamewaa-Nyame [This the Kait and Ka of Amenet-Amen]. The Spiritual-Entity that dwells within your head, that which is always pulling you in the direction of Nyamewaa-Nyame Nhyehyee (Divine Order) is the Okra/Okraa. The soul-force of Okra/Okraa continuously pulls you in the direction of Divinity for:
You have within your Okra/Okraa, whose physical seat within you is the brain-structure, a direct connection to the Okraa/Okra of Nyamewaa-Nyame. Your Okra/Okraa is thus positioned upon the apex of a Divine ahinasa (triangle). The two bottom points of this ahinasa represent the Abosom and Nananom Nsamanfo. These two bottom points comprise the base of the ahinasa, and it is the base, represented by the Abosom and Nananom Nsamanfo, that support the apex--your Okra/Okraa, your nkrabea, you. [The position of your Okra/Okraa at the apex is in alignment with the position of the Okraa/Okra of Nyamewaa-Nyame.]
This is the Obra-ahinasa, the Obra (aw-brah')/life-structure, through which all Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut, and only Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut, incarnate and through which we operate. Attempts to operate outside of this structure bring disorder. [It is important to note that non-Afurakanu/non-Afuraitkaitnut (non-Africans~non-Blacks) do not possess an Okra/Okraa, nor are they connected to the Abosom or Nananom Nsamanfo.]
Nanasom affords us the ability to consciously apprehend the ahinasa, recognize our place in Creation and function accordingly. It allows us to properly delineate what direction we should be headed, what obstacles are necessary to overcome and how to overcome them without creating disorder in the process. It gives us the opportunity to create and live good lives. Nanasom is the ritual grounding of Nyamewaa-Nyame Nhyehyee (Divine Order).
A minority of cells within the physical body become disfigured after having absorbed toxins, chemicals, etc. Such cells degenerate, mutate, into cancerous cells. The cancerous cells now only (mal)-function to consume and destroy the healthy cells in the body. While such disfigured, cancerous cells live within the body for a period, the body's immune response ultimately isolates these cells, destroys them and expells them from the body. In this manner the Order of the body is maintained. In the human sphere the non-Afurakani/non-Afuraitkaitnit (non-African, non-Black) population are the cancerous cells. They are those disfigured, degenerate cells, mutant cells who only (mal)-function in the world to consume and destroy the normal, Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit, healthy, original cells. While they have existed within the body for a certain period of time, the Divine Immune System within the Divine Body of Nyamewaa-Nyame will ultimately eradicate them from the body.
Only Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut have the capacity to become Nananom. Only Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut are capable of practicing Nanasom, for Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit people are the only created people in the world. No other groups including white europeans, white americans, white hispanics/latinos/latinas, so-called native americans, white arabs, white indians/hindus, white asians, etc. qualify as Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut and therefore have no place, physically, spiritually nor cosmologically, within any form of Nanasom. This includes all of the various expressions of Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit Ancestral Religion manifest in our various ethnicities in Afuraka/Afuraitkait (Africa) and outside of Afuraka/Afuraitkait, wherever we exist in the world.
christianity, islam, judaism/hebrewism, taoism, buddhism, hinduism, vedanta, gnosticism, kabbalism, sufism and all other practices of the whites and their offspring are pseudo (false)-religions based on fictional characters who never existed of any race. The fictional characters include jesus, yeshua ben pandira, muhammed, moses, abraham, david, solomon, sheba, menelik, brahmin, allah, yahweh, buddha, and many others. These pseudo-religions and their fictional characters were deliberately manufactured by the whites and their offspring in order to pervert and control the minds/spirits of Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut, thereby setting the stage for white cultural and political domination. They are to be totally rejected by all Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut without exception.
It is only when we free ourselves from these pseudo-religions, their fake characters and their foolish philosophies that we place ourselves in the position to free ourselves from white rule. It is wholly unnatural for Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut to live under the domination: cultural, political, economic, spiritual, or otherwise of our absolute enemies, the akyiwadefo (whites and their offspring). It is however natural to embrace ourselves, our Divinely allotted function in Creation as Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut and the ritual practices particular to our spiritual make-up which have the capacity to align us with Divine Order.
Nanasom - Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religion - is the only Religion that has ever existed and that ever will exist.
The pseudo(false)-religions in all of their various forms are not manifestations of Nanasom in any fashion whatsoever. Again, this includes all forms ("esoteric" and "exoteric") of christianity, islam, judaism/hebrewism, rastafarianism, moorishism, nuwabianism, 5%-ism (nation of "gods" and "earths"), sufism, gnosticism, kabbalism, hinduism, vedanta, "new" age pseudo-spirituality, "native"-american pseudo-spirituality, buddhism, taoism, hermeticism, extraterrestrial foolishness, lost-landism (fictional lost continents including atlantis, lemuria, mu, etc.), drug-addict "spirituality" (those who foolishly rationalize smoking marijuana, tobacco, abusing alcohol, other drugs, etc.), sex-cult "spirituality" and all others.
The perversion of Nanasom is not tolerated by Nyamewaa-Nyame, the Abosom, the Nananom Nsamanfo or by Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut. This means that we recognize the reality that all of the whites and their offspring (white europeans, white americans, white indians, white pseudo-"native"-americans, white asians, white hispanics, white latinos/latinas, etc.) are absolutely incapable of being involved in any form of Nanasom whatsoever (Akan, Yoruba, Vodou, Igbo, authentic expressions of Kenesu-Kamau/Nubian-Egyptian, etc.). We recognize the reality that dissexuality (homosexuality) is insane.
The whites and their offspring and dissexuality are both absolutely hated by Nyamewaa-Nyame, Mawu-Lisa, Amenet-Amen, by the Abosom, Orisha, Vodou, Arusi and the Nananom Nsamanfo, Egungun, Kuvito, Mmuo---The Supreme Being, the Deities and our Honorable/Spiritually Cultivated Ancestresses and Ancestors. We do not accept dissexuality nor the whites and their offspring on any level whatsoever. There is no exception to this reality. Those who teach otherwise are fraudulent. It matters not whether they were born in Afuraka/Afuraitkait or not. Their initiatic or cultural "titles" of "authority" are meaningless as well. The Abosom and Nananom Nsamanfo take away titles just as readily as They give them.
Moreover, there is no back-door for "some" white people. All of the whites and their offspring, living and deceased, are the enemies of all Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans). All of the whites and their offspring, of all ages, in the womb and to the grave--and beyond--are akyiwadefo (spirits of disorder) and are to be fully/Divinely hated, not accepted. Predators within our community who mimic the akyiwadefo are treated as akyiwadefo as well.
The Abosom, Orisha, Vodou, Arusi and the Nananom Nsamanfo, Egungun, Kuvito, Mmuo do not now, have never and never will work with the whites and their offspring. If a "spirit" is working with the akyiwadefo, this "spirit" is not one of the Abosom, Orisha, Vodou, Arusi nor the Nananom Nsamanfo, Egungun, Kuvito, Mmuo. It is simply the perverse spirit of a discarnate (deceased) individual being fraudulently promoted as, or fraudulently promoting itself as, a "deity" or "ancestor". Liars who die very often remain liars in the spirit-realm. Such liars work to impersonate the Abosom and Nananom Nsamanfo.
Nanasom distinguishes between real Abosom, Orisha, Vodou, Arusi and the fake "deities"/imposters. Nanasom distinguishes between real Nananom Nsamanfo, Egungun, Kuvito, Mmuo and fake "honorable ancestors"/imposters.
Real Abosom and Nananom Nsamanfo do not obey the dictates of human beings. Real Abosom and Nananom Nsamanfo obey/serve (som) Nana Nyamewaa and Nana Nyame only. They therefore function within the parameters of Nyamewaa-Nyame Nhyehyee - only. When we as human beings--Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit human beings only--obey/serve Nyamewaa-Nyame, we are in harmony with the Abosom and Nananom Nsamanfo. Our sincere desire and attempts to harmonize with Them opens the way for Them to work with us.
Nanasom, Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit Ancestral Religion, is not dependent on a priesthood/priestesshood but is supported by priesthood/priestesshood. Priest/esshood, as perpetuated by human beings, is a cultural convenience, not a cultural necessity. A Traditional/Ancestral priest/esshood is a valuable cultural institution, however only when such a priest/esshood is one of integrity.
When the priest/esshood is corrupt the Abosom and Nananom Nsamanfo, Orisha and Egungun, Vodou and Kuvito, Arusi and Mmuo LEAVE the priest or priestess. They also LEAVE the shrine.
The Abosom and Nananom Nsamanfo will establish a new priest/esshood lineage or re-establish a broken priest/esshood lineage at anytime, anywhere and within any family of Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (and only Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut) on Asaase Afua (Earth) that Nyamewaa-Nyame deems necessary.
The new and/or reconstituted priest/esshood is trained directly by the Abosom and Nananom Nsamanfo.
Indeed, the first ever priests and priestesses in the trustory of the world were made in this fashion---as there were no priests and priestesses yet in existence to train the first would-be initiates.
This process has occurred for thousands of years and will continue to occur within Afuraka/Afuraitkait (Africa) and outside of Afuraka/Afuraitkait (Africa), wherever Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut are found in the world. This includes new and/or reconstituted lineages of priests and priestesses that have been and are being born from and trained directly by the Abosom and Nananom Nsamanfo within the population of Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut who are descendants of those who were enslaved in North, Central and South Amaruka (america), the Caribbean and europe.
The newly established and reconstituted priest/esshood lineages are equal in value and competence to those lineages that still exist in Afuraka/Afuraitkait.
The same major Abosom and Nananom Nsamanfo possess Their children and work through Their children in Afuraka/Afuraitkait and outside of Afuraka/Afuraitkait. This includes the expression of Nanasom manifest by Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut in Amaruka (america) which is as equally valid as it is unique. The Abosom, the Spirit-Forces of Creation/Nature, are not limited to the continent of Afuraka/Afuraitkait. They are carried in the kra ne mogya, the ori and eje, the soul and blood of the Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit--and only the Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit--wherever we are on Asaase Afua. The same is true of the Nananom Nsamanfo.
When an Obosom or one or more of the Nananom Nsamanfo possesses an Afurakani or Afuraitkaitnit individual and speaks directly through him or her, heals directly through him or her, etc., this Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit individual has become a vessel for that Obosom or the Nananom Nsamanfo in the human sphere (Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit human only). If it is part of his or her nkrabea to function as a vessel (priest or priestess) and if he/she commits to that nkrabea, then the Obosom or the Nananom Nsamanfo will train/teach the individual. An authentic priest/esshood has thus been established.
When the individual teaches others what the Abosom and Nananom Nsamanfo have taught him or her (and continues to teach him or her) and he or she institutionalizes said instructions without profanation, then an authentic priest/esshood has been perpetuated. Those who receive such instruction from the priest/ess, and from the Abosom and Nananom Nsamanfo, and perpetuate said instructions without profanation become a collective who function in service to Nyamewaa-Nyame.
Authentic priest/esshood is not determined nor legitimized by individuals in Afuraka/Afuraitkait or individuals outside of Afuraka/Afuraitkait. Authentic priest/esshood is determined and legitimized by Nyamewaa-Nyame, through the agency of the Abosom and Nananom Nsamanfo -- only.
Individuals, including Mpanyinfo (Elderesses/Elders), are only capable of acknowledging and conveying what the Abosom and Nananom Nsamanfo have legitimized.
NANASOM, Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religion, is the ritual incorporation of Divine Law and the ritual restoration of Divine Balance.
AMAMMERE, Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Culture, is the Divine acceptance--Law/Love--of Order and the Divine rejection--Hatred--of disorder.
AMANSESEW, Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Nationbuilding/Restoration, is the reestablishment of civilization--a social order rooted in the Divine Order of Nature--Nyamewaa-Nyame Nhyehyee.
NANASOM and AMAMMERE support AMANSESEW. This is the ahinasa of ahofadi (liberation).
NYAMEWAA-NYAME NHYEHYEE, Divine Order, is comprised of two complementary poles: MMARA NE KYI - Divine Law (Love) and Divine Hate.
Disorder ('evil') is not the opposite of Order. Disorder is the perversion of Order. Good and evil are not relative. Disorder is not part of the continuum of Divine Order.
NYAMEWAA-NYAME NHYEHYEE, Divine Order, which includes all of the Abosom and Nananom Nsamanfo, Orisha and Egungun, Vodou and Kuvito, Arusi and Mmuo does not create nor support disorder, but only supports its eradication.
NYANSA, Wisdom/Intelligence, is comprised of two complementary poles: Revolution and Resolution.
ABODE, the Created Universe, is founded upon the Divine Balance of Male and Female. This foundational relationship is rooted in the Great God and the Great Goddess, Whom Together comprise The Supreme Being: Amenet and Amen, Nyamewaa and Nyame, Mawu and Lisa, Komosu and Chukwu, Katyeleo and Kolotyolo...
Male and Female are complementary opposites not conflictual opposites. We recognize the reality that when we invoke the Abosom we invoke Goddesses and the Gods. When we evoke the Nananom Nsamanfo we evoke the Ancestresses and the Ancestors. When we invoke Ra and Rait, Da and Ayida-Hwedo, Nyankonton and Nyankopon, we invoke the Creator and the Creatress.
ODWIRA, purification, operationalizes NANASOM.
Those who do not understand these principles do not understand Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religion no matter what form it takes (Akan, Yoruba, Igbo, Bakongo, Ewe, Kamiti, etc.).
is the name of our nhoma (n-hoh'-mah), our journal. It is a which properly defines Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit Ancestral Religion in its various aspects. Originally subscription-based, our nhoma is now a free download (download below).
is divided into seven sections based on the Abosom, the Deities, of the solar, lunar and planetary bodies which govern the Akan 7-day week. The themes governing each section are:
is ultimately about Nyansa (Intelligence) as it relates to Amansesew (Nationbuilding/restoration). Nyansa is comprised of two complementary poles: Revolution and Resolution. As we have stated in the PTAH Sasetem:
"...When Earth moves around Sun and returns to its place of origin, It has made a complete revolution. Return to your Ancestral origin is complete revolution. When Earth, through revolution, transmits Its power through the seasons, It has brought about a complete resolution. Transmit power through the cycles of revolution brings about our complete resolution. Revolution and Resolution are two halves of one whole--Intelligence.
Revolution-Resolution as a tool of cultural reorientation is defined as the right of return and the right of reconstitution. In practice it is also the rite of return and the rite of reconstitution. The return is to our Ancestral culture, our way of living, our normalcy. It is a return to the pact we made with Nyamewaa-Nyame before we came into the world, and a reconstitution of the cultural values and institutions rooted in those values which make our adhering to that Divine pact possible. We have a right to return to ourselves and to reconstitute ourselves. We must engage in the rites/rituals in order to return to ourselves and to reconstitute ourselves in harmony with Divine Order. We have thus recognized disorder and moved to reject it, thus manifesting intelligence in the true sense."
This is an nhoma for, by and about Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans~Black People) exclusively. We define various aspects of ritual experience and cultural values as practiced in our varied Ancestral Religious expressions including but not limited to: Akan, Ewe, Yoruba, Igbo, Bakongo, Bambara, Dogon, Minianka, Goromantche, Ovambo, Kenesu-Kamau (Nubian-Egyptian), etc. . . .
We also show the origins of the many fictional characters presented to us in the pseudo(false)-religions of the whites and their offspring. These fictional characters, all of which never existed of any race whatsoever include: jesus/yeshua, muhammed, moses, abraham, solomon, sheba, menelik, yahweh, buddha, allah, brahmin, as well as many others. Moreover, we show true cosmology and dispel pseudo-esoteric lies including the absolutely foolish ideas, promoted by the whites and their offspring, that Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) came from continents outside of Afuraka/Afuraitkait (Africa) [asia, america, or anywhere else], that Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) came from another "planet", "star system" or "galaxy", fabricated "lost continents" (atlantis, mu/lemuria, etc.) or that the Abosom (Deities) are "extraterrestrials".
While our orientation is Akan, our nhoma includes all other Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit cultures as well and highlights a different culture in each issue in the ABUSUAKUW section. This nhoma is relevant to all Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut wherever we are found in the world, for we are all connected.

NANASOM - Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religion and its Manifestation in the blood-circles of Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) in America
