Aakhuamuman Amaruka Atifi Mu, the Akwamu Nation in North America, welcomes the Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African~Black) community to our second annual HOODOO MAYN - Hoodoo Nation Festival which will take place on October 16, 13017 (2016) in Washington, DC. Shop with our EGUA - Marketplace vendors and learn about our Ancestral Religious Heritage in North america through ritual, presentations, literature, art, food, music and handmade products.
HOODOO MAYN is the only festival of its kind, celebrating and examining our Akan Ancestral Religion as brought to North america in the blood-circles of our Akan Ancestresses and Ancestors and maintained to this day. It was through Hoodoo 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. It is through Hoodoo that Akan people in North america today will complete our Revolutionary-Resolutionary function of Amansesew, Nationbuilding/Restoration, as a component of the larger collective of Odwiraman, Purified Nation - Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans~Black People) in the Western hemisphere.
