ߚߥߋߟߍߣߜߐߛߎ Celebrating 700 Years of the Xwelɛngbɔsu Royal Dynasty

This weekend and all year long we celebrate the 700 years ago founding of the Afrikan royal dynasty of Xwelɛngbɔsu, the royal house of descent of the founder of Gànlɔdó! The Xwelɛngbɔsu royal dynasty of Xévíe (a city in what is now Southern Benin Republic west Afrika) was founded 700 years  ago by the toxwiyo (founding ancestor) Fánúkùn Jǐsovì ; a great diviner, spiritual intuitive, and leader of his community. He was of the Sɛ́to sub-ethnic group of the larger Aja collective identity. To be clear, in the year 5532 (1291 Julian calendar) the Jisovi family was recognized as a noble house and 30 years later in 5562 as a royal house under the ruling monarch of Xévíe at the time, Axɔ́si (Queen) Nunyawegla. Over its 510 year in existence in Afrika, the Xwelɛngbɔsu dynasty produced many powerfu...

The Kilombo Cookbook: Aja Foods and the ReAfrikanization Diet

From the introduction To view eating habits as a matter of culture is to overstand that they are a product of codes of conduct and the structure of social relationships of the society in which they occur. What and how people eat may, indeed, usefully be overstood in terms of a system whose coherence is afforded by the social and cultural organization with which it is associated. Captive ship cargoes brought crops directly from Máwùfɛ (Afrika) to North America for captive Máwùfɛnumeto (Afrikans) to consume during their passage to the New World under the transatlantic captive trade. These crops included several basic foods central to the Afrikan diet. This book is a document of some of the core foods and recipes eaten by our captive Aja (mostly referred to as Fon of Benin Repu...

ߜ߳ߐߟߌ ߝߊ߫ The Kpoli Fá of Afrikan Vodun: Sacred Messages from Fá Ayìdègún

Introducing yet another ground breaking and history making work from Ayinon Axosu Agelogbagan Azasinkpotin Agbovi entitled The Kpoli Fá of African Vodun: Sacred Messages from Fá Ayìdègún. This work is the first ever book written on the sacred scriptures/chapters called Kpoli Fá/Fádu of the Vodun tradition of Aja (Fon) people of Southern Benin Republic, in the English language; known as Odu Ifá among the Yoruba. Because of language barriers and lack of training, most New Afrikans (Afrikan descendants of captive Afrikans) are not aware of the content, let alone the richness and deep philosophy, of the sacred chapters of the Kpoli Fá. His Imperial Majesty Axosu Agelogbagan has put in the painstaking labor to bring the deep philosophy of the Kpoli Fá to the rest of the Afrikan world...

Celebrating the Bois Caiman Ceremony that Lead to the Founding of an Afrikan Nation in the West

On this day in the year 6032 AX (August 14, 1791 Gregorian year) one of the most influential and significant events in Máwùfenu (Afrikan) history occurred when over 300 captive Máwùfɛnugbeto (Afrikan people) gathered together and performed a Vodún ceremony that would start what is commonly called the Ayiti (Haitian) Revolution. This revolution led to the freedom of not only the captive Afrikans of Ayiti but also to the creation of the first Afrikan republic in the West. It should be noted that this ceremony was led by a woman Vodún priest. This event reverberated throughout the world, striking the fear of Xévíoso (thunder deity) in the hearts and minds of the captive-holding and non-captive holding yovo (whited and so called native Americans that were holding our ancestors in cap...
