Mama Marimba Ani speaks on the Spiritual Connectedness of Our children

Mama Marimba Ani expresses it perfectly here…Our focus must be on Our young Afrikan children primarily, not on the adults of our race. she explains in depth here, how it is evident that we as Afrikan people in adulthood are mentally destroyed & psychologically traumatized because we have fully digested the yurugu worldview. we have functioned using this yurugu worldview as our compass to the world and as our method of relating among ourselves, and now we do not know of any other way to Be.

She says during this video that “she focuses on the younger people that are still more in touch with what is natural to Afrikan people”. this is why Katiopa Watoto Shule Childcare Services exists because i also understand that Our children are MUCH more in touch with our ancestral spirits, are much more in tune with what it means to BE Afrikan than we are.

I also understand that Afrikan children will also be able to teach Us once again how to embrace that divine innocence within Us as a people and how to embrace Our Afrikan spiritual centeredness that we have lost due to being tainted and tortured by yurugu concepts and worldview for the majority of our lives. let us honor, nurture, love, cherish and appreciate our children Afrikan people. they are a gift to Us even more than we are to them.

In more ways than we know they are Here to teach us what it means to be Afrikan rather than we teach them. therefore Afrikan centered education is not just about teaching Our children who they Are it is about learning from them how to BE who we really are as well. when dealing with our precious and beloved young ones, WE Always remember that.

  3. funny thing is, just this saturday (26 May), at an African Liberation day event, when I blasted Garvey, a lady essentially implied that my voice was not valued as “Africans” had a tradition of valuing elders more than the youth…

    guess she didn’t particularly listen well to Ani .

    • Mekyea wo Brotha Omalone,
      May i ask, why did you “blast” Garvey?? As Afrikans we value our youth and our elders as well. It is a known fact in Afrikan cosmology that Our children are the divine ancestors who have returned to this physical plane of existence to continue the cyclical process of spiritual continuity….so anyone who overstands Afrikan cosmology should know very well that Our children are the divine connection between Us and the realm of the Egungun.

        Heres the 35 minute audio of the panel discussion where the comments were made.
        These people seemed more interested in posing, posturing and pontificating than producing practical programmes.
        They were speaking about organising the youth but I protested and asserted that there was not a need for “new” strategies, since the old had not even been tried. At this point, when I noted some such programmes, they claimed I forgot Garvey, who they also claimed I did not understand. Protesting this strawman attack, I rebuttled them, saying that others had Garveys ideas in place many years earlier.
        In short, I am not a fan of making idols out of mortals, esepcially when they are “passed.” I am more interested in progressiveness.
