PTAH Sasetem(TM) is a curriculum created for adults who are of Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African~Black) heritage to utilize in the education of themselves, their peers and in the instruction of Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit children and young adults. PTAH Sasetem is a seven-tiered structure rooted in the Ancestral order of Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit culture. This structure is detailed in the PTAH Sasetem Nhoma (book) and our related Adesua (training workshops).
The consciousness and behavior of Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit children, young adults and adults is awakened and transformed through the principles and values conveyed through the seven tiers within PTAH Sasetem:
Afuraka/Afuraitkait (Africa): the value of identity
Melanin: the value of physiology
MMARA NE KYI
Law and Hate: the value of function as mission
Decision-making process: the value of intelligent judgment
Ethical Life: the value of good character
Responsibility: the value of expression
Tools: the value of execution
The principles and values of PTAH Sasetem have been used to positively re-orient Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit children, young adults and adults in prevention and intervention settings, classrooms, after-school programs, day-care and home-school programs, adult and youth "rites of passage" programs and various Mentu Ra (mentor) relationships. As Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit adults, only we can ground ourselves and our Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit youth and peers in our shared Ancestral legacy. It is imperative that we engage a process rooted in our Ancestral culture for our total development, sustenance, sovereignty and security.
Adesua (workshops) are specifically designed to train individuals to conduct the PTAH Sasetem. The Adesua are 3 hours in duration and are open to Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut(Africans~Blacks) only. Registrants will be instructed in the seven tiers of PTAH Sasetem as detailed in the PTAH Sasetem Nhoma (book) and the method of implementing their principles and values.
The PTAH Sasetem is designed to be implemented in seven sessions of 40 minutes. Thus, an Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit adult trained in a 3-hour Adesua will be able to effectively and fully conduct the seven 40-minute sessions with Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit children, young adults or adults once a week for seven weeks, or once a day for seven days.
Registration for the PTAH Sasetem Adesua is for Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) adults only. Contact us for details. We conduct PTAH Sasetem Adesua for small and large groups.
