Who We Are

Who We Are: "We are a collaboration of families of African Traditional practitioners coming together to venerate our Ancestors for the perpetual healing of our communities."
About our favicon: Fawohodie, an adinkra symbol meaning the "symbol of independence, freedom, emancipation". From the expression: Fawodhodie ene obre na enam. Literal translation: "Independence comes with its responsibilities."

Celebration 2018

It's coming up, it's coming soon! The 8th Annual Ancestor Celebration. Join Us!

June 24, 2018
Perkersen Park Pavillion
1:00 - 5:00

It is that time of year again and we will return to Perkersen Park to call forth the memory and greatness of our Ancestors. 

We have created the space for you to grieve the loss of all that you have been cut off from all of your life--your power, your honor, your past. 

We have created the space for you to celebrate the greatness of the blood that runs through your veins. From the pyramids, complex mathematics, visualizing stars before telescopes, to complex systems and understanding of life and the human connection to all living things. This is what we appreciate and celebrate. We do so in order to reclaim all that is rightfully ours. 

As Dr. Wade Nobles once said, "we are not Up from Slavery, we are Down from the Pyramids".

We are not about a single tradition. We are unashamedly Afrikan and we wish to join our collective Afrikan community to heal our collective Afrikan community.

If you do not know about Ancestor Veneration, this is an opportunity to learn a few things about it and to begin to engage yourself with it, no matter what religion or tradition you adhere to. We know we have Ancestors because we are the living testament to their having existed.
