"...Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans~Black People) in North america brought our Hoodoo religion and culture with us in our blood-circles from Afuraka/Afuraitkait (Africa) during the Mmusuo Kese (Great Perversity/Enslavement Era). This is an unbroken tradition which is not only intergenerational, but transcarnational. This means that it was and is informed by the Abosom and our Nananom Nsamanfo, Akan terms for Deities/Divine Spirit-Forces that animate Creation and our Spiritually Cultivated Ancestresses and Ancestors.

It is through the Abosom (Deities) that our Ancestral Religious traditions are established. This is true of all Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) wherever we are in the world. When the Abosom first possessed our Ancestresses and Ancestors via ritual and communicated the Divine Order of Creation directly to them, our religious practice was established. When those first Ancestresses and Ancestors preserved what they were taught by the Abosom and transferred that tradition via protocols to their posterity without profanation, our religious practice was/is perpetuated. Our knowledge of Nyamewaa-Nyame Nhyehyee, The Mother and Father Supreme Being's Order (Divine Order), our role in the Divine Order and the means by which we can ritually incorporate Divine Law and ritually restore Divine Balance to our lives is replenished in every generation as the Abosom and Nananom Nsamanfo continue to communicate with us via spirit-possession and spirit-communication. Ancestral Spirit possession includes communication with our ancient Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestresses and Ancestors up to our recently transitioned Ancestresses and Ancestors of good character.

Whenever we have children we have drawn one or more of our Nsamanfo, our Ancestresses and Ancestors, into the womb to return to Asaase Afua (Earth Mother) once again. The knowledge of the religion and culture is written into their Okra/Okraa, their Soul/Divine Consciousness by Nyamewaa-Nyame, the Supreme Being. As they grow and develop they access this Ancestral knowledge and incorporate it into every aspect of their lives when properly acculturated. Through this process they positively impact the lives of everyone in the community.

This is transcarnational transmission of culture, the intergenerational spiri-genetic transmission of culture which was/is impervious to being broken through the horrors of the Mmusuo Kese (enslavement)...

The Akan Religion in North america is popularly called Hoodoo. As we demonstrate in this publication, the term Hoodoo is the same term used amongst the Akan in West Afuraka/Afuraitkait (Africa) referencing ritual healing, medicine and the conjuring of the Abosom and Nsamanfo - ndu (oohn-dooh). Moreover, its roots are found in ancient Khanit (Nubia) bearing the exact same meanings and also identifying the ancient Khanit (Akanni) people and ancient land itself.

It was through Hoodoo that Akan people in North america were empowered to wage war against the white enslavers...

It was such sustained warfare against the whites and their offspring that forced them into accepting emancipation. For, they feared that if they did not move in that direction, the Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) would massacre all of them over time.

Hoodoo as well as Voodoo, Juju and more was the power that ended enslavement in North america and is the power that is liberating the enslaved minds of our people today..."
