GUAMU KASA (gwah'-moo kah'-sah) is an Akan term which is defined as the act of public speaking or public speech.
We conduct workshops, trainings and presentations nationally and internationally on the various topics covered in our audio, video and written publications inclusive of Nanasom, Amammere and Amansesew - Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religion, Culture and Nationbuilding/Restoration.
See both of our websites for our books, articles, video and audio presentations which form the basis of our instruction. We have published 25 books, over 80 research articles/publications, 100+ videos and over 270 blogtalkradio broadcasts.

Originally from Chicago, we are presently based in Washington, DC. We travel across the united states and internationally to conduct workshops, trainings and give presentations. To date, we have presented in North Carolina, Washington DC, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Illinois, Michigan, Louisiana, Georgia, Alabama, Texas, Tennessee and Connecticut. We have upcoming events in California and Florida TBA. This is in addition to our AKANFO NANASOM, ODWIRA and EGUA blogtalkradio broadcast archives which are accessed by Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) worldwide.
We conduct workshops, trainings and give presentations to large audiences as well as small study groups. Our approach to guamu kasa is rooted in NANASOM - Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religion:
We recognize guamu kasa, public speaking, to be a service to the Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African~Black) community. We therefore do not charge a speaker's fee to organizers of events. We also stipulate that when scheduling an event it is important that attendees are not charged an admissions fee or a registration fee to attend. Our people must be able to attend our events for free. Additionally, we give away a free copy of one of our soft-cover books to all attendees of our events. We have given away over 1,100 books.
Admission and/or registration is for Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans~Black People) exclusively.
This means for example that instead of holding an event at a public use facility (e.g. public library conference room) individuals or organizers would utilize or rent out a private space (e.g. Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) bookstore, Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) school, Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) art gallery, Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) dance or fitness studio, etc. for a few hours). You can exclude non-Afurakanu/non-Afuraitkaitnut (non-africans) when holding workshops, meetings, etc. in privately owned or rented spaces.
Workshops, trainings and presentations are conducted by Odwirafo Kwesi Ra Nehem Ptah Akhan. See our publication Odwirafo and Aakhuamuman for autobiographical information on Odwirafo [oh-jeeh'-rah-foh]:
In our approach to guamu kasa, we have developed a workable model for organizers to cover the only expenses they would incur: travel (flight and hotel - discounted through travelocity, expedia, etc.) and venue rental (if necessary).
You can raise funds by selling/distributing of our soft-cover books. We have a NOKWAREFO - Distributor option for any Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African~Black) individual who would like to generate income for themselves by selling our soft-cover books. This Nokwarefo option can also be utilized by organizers of an event on a short-term basis in order to generate the revenue to cover operating expenses. Nokwarefo (distributors) order our books wholesale (35% discount) and sell them retail. If you choose to employ this option you can cover most if not all of the travel and venue rental expense for the event, while providing the community the books which contain information that is transformative and also form the basis of the material to study in advance of the presentation, training or workshop.
Our Guamu Kasa Model for public speech as a service to the Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African~Black) community:
- Ensures that everyone in the community leaves our events with at least one free copy of the book we are speaking on
- Attendees to our events do not incur any out-of-pocket expenses for admission. All workshops, trainings and presentations are free
- Organizer(s) have the option of covering the travel/venue rental expenses by selling our publications. Moreover, some organizers will be able to sell enough books to not only cover the expenses, but generate additional income for themselves as entrepreneurs. We do not charge a speaker's fee/per diem to organizers for us to come out to conduct our workshops, trainings or presentations
Our Guamu Kasa Model is a standard set by the Nananom Mpanyinfo and Nananom Nsamanfo, the Spiritually Cultivated Elders and Elderesses and Ancestresses and Ancestors of Aakhuamuman Amaruka Atifi Mu, Akwamu Nation in North America. It is an expression of AKANFO NANASOM - Ancient Authentic Akan Ancestral Religion.
