Economic Development Model

Our OKOM - Economic Development Model is a means by which we 'Starve the Beast and Feed the Pride'. We reallocate those funds wasted with white businesses on a weekly basis to Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African~Black) businesses, organizations and institutions.

Excerpts from our publication, OKOM - Economic Development Model:

"...The term okom is comprised of the terms ko (go) and mu (within). Thus komu or kom, okom means to go within. This references hunger, desire for the 'going within' or consumption of food and medicine for sustenance, healing, building and protection as well as the spirit 'going within' or possessing the individual for spiritual sustenance, healing, building and protection.

In a natural sense, okom references our innate inclination to possess that which we need to sustain ourselves, heal ourselves, protect ourselves, develop ourselves, govern ourselves, shelter ourselves and clothe ourselves. This constellation of seven needs resounds the seven principal values of Amansesew - Nationbuilding/Restoration, for Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnt (African~Black) people as delineated within Aakhuamuman Amaruka Atifi Mu, the Akwamu Nation in North America:

Methods of Food Production and Preservation
Methods of Curing Disease
Establishing a Military Structure
Establishing Institutions of Education, Training and Cultivation
Sound Systems of Governance and Jurisprudence
Construction of Homes on Acquired Land
Production of Clothing

"...We are targeting specific Afurakani/Afuraitkainit (African) businesses, organizations and institutions that serve the Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) community in a positive fashion and share our Ancestral values as delineated by the seven principal values of Amansesew - Nationbuilding/Restoration.

We will support 52 Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) entrepreneurs, organizations and institutions over the next 52 weeks.

Your participation in this effort is valued and appreciated. It is as simple as starving the beast on a weekly basis and making a donation/contribution to the listed businesses.

For additional insight, view the videos from our 4-part blogtalkradio series on our OKOM - Economic Development Model and related broadcasts wherein we examine the model and its practical applications in detail:




Below is the business of the week and the list of Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Businesses, Organizations and Institutions that we have targeted for capital investment via the OKOM - Economic Development Model over the past year. This list will continue to expand.

Our goal is to target one business per week for 52 weeks.

We have also included the link to our EGUA - Marketplace blogtalkradio broadcast archives for each of the business owners who came on our show to share information about their businesses, organizations and institutions and how their Ancestral Religious values inform their philosophy of service to the Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African~Black) community. All future interviews with the owners of newly added businesses, organizations and institutions will be posted here as well.

Please check the list frequently and share this information with all of your contacts. We will also have a segment during our EGUA - Marketplace broadcasts on blogtalkradio wherein we will update everyone on the progress of this operation including interviews with the business owners who have received funds as a result of OKOM.
