Tehuti: Sankofa, Fa and Ifa

Male Deity of Divine Wisdom and Divination in Kamit, Akan, Ewe, Fon and Yoruba

An excerpt from the introduction to the text:

"...Adinkra symbols, as is true with their parent medutu (hieroglyphs) and other symbols utilized by Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans~Black People) wherever we exist in the world, are matrices of Divine Energy and Consciousness. The specific geometric forms comprising each symbol radiates a unique configuration of energy which resonates at the frequency of specific Abosom (Deities). The adinkra symbols thus become shrines-in-miniature for these Abosom and for the Nananom Nsamanfo (Honored Ancestral Spirits) who carry the same energy complex within their clans. Adinkra symbols are thus used on Deity shrines, Ancestral shrines, talismans, amulets, ritual implements and on the body in the process of ritual invocation and evocation of the Abosom and Nananom Nsamanfo.

Sankofa, meaning return (san), go (ko) and grasp (fa) from your Ancestral past in order to bring balance to the life-circumstances in the present and to chart a balanced future, is one of those energic- matrices drawing the Abosom and Nananom Nsamanfo to us – including in North america in the Hoodoo tradition. Our Akan Ancestresses and Ancestors from ancient Khanit and Kamit, from West Afuraka/Afuraitkait (Africa) and those who were forced into North america, yet waged the Hoodoo Wars for liberation and forced the end of enslavement – it is these Nananom Nsamanfo, our Spiritually Cultivated Ancestresses and Ancestors of our direct spiri-genetic blood-circles, who inform our knowledge of Sankofa and the identity of the Obosom (Deity) Sankofa. This Obosom and related Abosom (Deities) have guided us for hundreds of years in North america and inform our practice of adebisa (oracular divination).

We thus present to the Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African~Black) community on Sankofa Dwira Da, the first day of our seven-day New Year observance and the 20th anniversary of our expression of adebisa (divination) being restored in our Ancestral clan, this work elucidating the identity of the Obosom (Deity) Sankofa - Tehuti for the first time..."
