AKYISAN [eh'-cheeh sah'eehn] is comprised of two terms. In our Ancestral language of Khanit and Kamit (Nubia and Egypt) and the descendant Akan language, the term akyi (eh-cheeh') means 'back'. The term san (sahn) means 'return'. AKYISAN in the context of Ancestral Religion defines the process of reversion - returning back, reverting - to our pristine state or condition.
Aakhuamuman Amaruka Atifi Mu, the Akwamu Nation in North America, welcomes the Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African~Black) community to our third annual AKYISAN - Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religious Reversion Conference.
Our conference will take place on March 24-25, 13018 (2018) in Washington, DC. Learn about the nature and value of Ancestral Religious Reversion as the key to our total restoration as Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) people spiritually, socially, economically and politically from our different presenters. Also, shop with our EGUA - Marketplace vendors, embracing our Ancestral Religious heritage through ritual, art, food, music, handmade products, literature and presentations.
AKYISAN is the only conference of its kind, guiding the revival of NANASOM, our Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religion, fossilized within the bones and blood of our direct-blood Ancestresses and Ancestors upon our departure from Afuraka/Afuraitkait (Africa) through migration or forced migration into the western hemisphere and maintained to this day. It was through Nanasom that we were guided and empowered to heal ourselves, educate ourselves, sustain ourselves, train ourselves, wage war against the whites and their offspring and force the end of enslavement in North america and the entire western hemisphere. It is through Akyisan - Ancestral Religious Reversion - that our people will revivify and operationalize the Revolutionary-Resolutionary function of Nanasom, thereby affecting Amansesew, Nationbuilding/Restoration, as the collective of Odwiraman, Purified Nation - Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans~Black People) in the Western hemisphere.
Our expressions of Ancestral Religion in North America include: Hoodoo (Akan), Juju (Yoruba), Voodoo (Fon, Ewe), Gris Gris (Bambara), Gullah-Geechee (Gola Kisi) Wanga (Ovambo), Ngengang (Fang) and more.
Our capacity to affect AKYISAN is not dependent upon anyone outside of our direct Ancestral blood-circles. Indeed, our Ancestral Religious practice can only be legitimized through the Abosom and Nananom Nsamanfo - the Deities and Ancestral Spirits - who were assigned to us pre-incarnation by Nyamewaa-Nyame (Amenet-Amen) and who were born into the world with us. We are born into our culture - it cannot therefore be ‘given’ to us. This is true of Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) in the western hemisphere as well as those on the continent of Afuraka/Afuraitkait (Africa). We can therefore only restore our culture in its fullness through AKYISAN - Reversion.
AKYISAN - Ancestral Religious Reversion is open to Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans~Black People) only.
