You can watch the Spanish version of this documentary here: https://youtu.be/-5mTYXGTlfkIn southwestern Guinea Bissau there are some islands where a very special people live, the Bissago. What is it that makes them so special? It is not the fact of living in balance and harmony with the spectacular nature that surrounds them, taking from the land or the sea only what they need to survive. Neither is their deep animistic spirituality, which marks their life with rites to acquire the knowledge of their ancestors. What makes them so special is that, in the Bissago society, the woman is the protagonist.Subscribe to the channel: https://goo.gl/5Sp36BFollow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/wocomoThey are the ones who decide how to manage the crops or punish the crimes, they are the priestesses of the temple, those who can communicate with the gods, the forces of nature and the spirits of the deceased. For the Bissago, the woman is feared and respected, since they consider her capable of deciding about life and death. This documentary focuses on the lives of some of the women of Eticoga, the main village on the island of Orango. Through their lives and ways of looking we will know the most outstanding and peculiar aspects of this matriarchal society so different, not only from the Western way of life, but from the rest of Africa and almost all other cultures on the planet.Original title - Queens of OrangoA film by Raúl Bueno Herrera© 2020, Licensed by 3boxmedia#documentary #women #womenempowerment #matriarchy

In this episode, we offer some new perspectives on death and dying, and thus life itself. Death is a misnomer but more usefully a metaphor, for we practice or rehearse life and death each time we sleep. But what is the point of this rehearsal? When do we go on stage and live out our "real" lives? And could it be that life doesn't begin at age 40 but with the transition to ancestry?

In previous Powered by Ancestry episodes, I have made reference to rituals used for ancestral connection and work. In this episode, I shared several simple but effective rituals I have used over the years. Disclaimer: though these are general rituals which anyone can do, what I am sharing is my experiences in having using them, rather than advising viewers or prescribing them. Please work with a reputable spiritualist if or when questions about ritual work arises.

In this episode, I take up a request from one of our dear subscribers to Powered by Ancestry and then dive into what's commonly referred to as totems--an animal held to have spiritual significance and adopted as an emblem--or what I call spiritual animals. Using my Akan folks' deep knowledge as a guide, I walk viewers through some essential facts of said spiritual animals and how they operate in the life of a person. Note: the leopard is the "spirit animal" for both my maternal and paternal clans, though I focus more on the latter in this episode, and a correction: the disembodied ↄbosom associated with lake Bosomtwe is called Akwasi Bosomtwe Akowuakra, not Kwaku Bosomtwe. Enjoy!

Where do the ancestors dwell? What happens when we transition from this world to theirs, and what happens to our whole being at the time of temporal death? In this episode, we deal with these questions and more, revealing the little known but specific details about the ancestral world and how it is organized. These insights have implications for everything from who we call in libation or prayer to the relationship with your ancestors to how to frame your human experience to live a meaningful, destiny laden existence.

Introduction: the kulunsi, the Kongo cross, named by Kibambuende K. Fu-kiau the Kongo Cosmogram, is in reality the summary of all the teachings of Bukongo, the Kongo religion. In this video we will explore the epistemological meaning of the kulunsi and explain how it relates to the acquisition of new knowledge..
Conclusion: the kulunsi, called by Fu-kiau Kongo Cosmogram, is the summary of all the teachings bequathed by our ancestors. As an epistemological symbol, it teaches us that the highest means of the acquisition of new knowledge is the purification of thoughts. This is the process that allowed ancient Egyptians to reach to their astonishing knowledge. A process that is a must for nowadays Blacks.

In this episode, I make the case for the deep importance of ancestral names and introduce viewers to an African naming practice. Those names are a requisite of personhood. They map out and even guide us to the realization of our path/purpose in the temporal world. The name of a person must reflects his/her purpose in life; said another way, names function as indexes of the particular “soul” assigned a particular human mission, as revealed on a particular day of birth.
