The Story of Afuraka

The following is based upon the writings of Nanasom Nhoma and the Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit Ancestral Religion Journal sent to me by Ankhesen Mié. Please note that much of what you will read is rooted in African mythology, spiritualism and deities. 

When the Earth was young, all that existed on the surface was water. The Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit ancestors and ancestresses learned the process of their planet’s development and have recorded their findings using writings and illustrations. It is believed that they’ve learned the process from gods and goddesses responsible for creation collectively known as Abosom who played a role in the creation of the first landmass. The ancient cosmology, writing systems and languages of Keneset and Kamit (Nubia and Egypt respectively) codified the process.

In Kamit the word Ka is a term for for: raised land, high land, exalted land, hill, mountain. The hieroglyphic for Ka is used to represent soul. There are other interpretations for Ka, each having the same or similar meaning depending on location, language, and cosmic meaning. Kait is the feminine word for Ka. Koko is the word used in the Twi language by the Akan people of Ghana. Oke is used by the Yoruba people of Nigeria.

One of the most important definitions of the word Ka describes it as a high ground for which Ra (Rait if you refer to the god as a female), the Deity of Creation, stood. Ra, as you may have been taught, was the sun god in Egypt. It is written that Ra/Rait used the sun (called Aten) to transmit their spiritual energy like how a satellite transmit singles from space to receivers on Earth. He, she, or they as the article interchanges between two different beings and one entity, was the divine embodiment of energy that nurtures and creates life on Earth. The life within all plants, animals, minerals and human is a portion of energy given by Ra. As such, all life on Earth is connected with the Deity. People of Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit descent are children of Ra.

The article then continues to discuss the Af which is the Kamit term for the flesh or house. Since your skin envelops your spirit, your Af is the “house of your soul.” Like Ka, there are many interpretations of the word used by different Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit people with the same basic meaning.

Afu, therefore, describes discarded animal flesh. When Ra moves through matter, he is then referred to as Afu Ra. According to mythology, Ra/Rait raised a grand landmass from the ocean to give it life. From this moment, the land is known as the Ka of Afu Ra, the land of the Creator. Thus, the landmass becomes known as Afuraka.

  1. Thank you,
    Between Ankhesen Mié, “excentricyoruba” and the ARKH PROJECT blog, I am moving through “the veil”.

    I wish I could add another decade to my life, just for the time to read about Africa

    Thank you again.
