May Knowledge of our history lead us to a better future
As we live in this world of colonial science,
bridled by modern villains, and their “civilized” criminal alliance;
in this imperial swamp of exploitation and grand-deception,
we fumble through life completely detached from human reality, lost, without direction.
Clumsily we carry on, deprived of the knowledge that we all hail from a culture of the Highest decree.
But if we examine what has been hidden from the world to see,
We will encounter the astounding beginnings of human history. . .
Emerging from the Great Lakes of Uganda and Kenya,
a majestic assemblage of the Black High Cultures did arise:
We flourished and spread up the valleys of the Nile. . .
We formed the great kingdoms of the Kush, Nubia and Meröwe,
and still we continued to grow –
Exuding renown and magnificence that none could defile.
Temples and shrines were built in stone, from Addis Abbaba to the Upper Lands.
We developed agriculture and astronomy, and built trade routes and titanic ships.
The prestige of our schools would train the world’s wisest men and women -
mothering all of the world’s philosophies, millennia before the first crack of a whip.
Our preeminence was so admired and well known,
That our High culture was mimicked across the globe.
Our traditional Kings and Pharaohs ruled by the Divine law,
in harmony with all.
They led by example for the people to follow
with intentions for mankind that were far from shallow.

Tradition to the Rescue
The wetlands of the Inner Niger Delta in Mali is home to over 1 million people due to the natural irrigation from the annual flood waters.
Wherever you may live, a healthy ecosystem is good in every way. In Mali, which is in the center of Western Meritah (colonial Africa), a rich cultural heritage runs through the region, just as the Djoliba (Niger) river does. The Djoliba is such a massive river that it creates an inland delta (flooded plain or marshland) within the Sahara Desert. The villagers of the interior delta are capable of many things: boat building, navigation, fishing, farming, construction of mud-brick structures and even building pyramids. Restoring the ecosystem can be added to the list. These villagers are working to reestablish regional wetland-forests. These forests serve as a refuge for plant and animal species during the dry season. Seven forests have been restored out of twenty that have perished, according to Mory Diallo, a research assistant at the local office of Wetlands International.
This is good news for the local economy because many fisheries have been restored, leading to income for local communities. Under the canopy of these forests, the water is kept from drying up entirely because of the shade that the trees provide. Small bodies of water remain throughout the dry season, which provides spawning ponds for fish. These submerged forests have recovered since being placed under the protection of traditional leaders. According to an article on Allafrica.com, much of the forests in this delta region were lost to drought in the 1970’s and 1980’s. However, beginning in the 1960’s, the increased usage of chemical agricultural inputs and exploitative farming practices of the so-called Green Revolution were implemented wherever colonial governments had influence. Because of its rice producing capacity, this region in Mali was exploited. The result, as we have seen wherever industrial agriculture has been adopted, is an environmental imbalance that forces the ecosystem to change.

To regain independence from colonial powers, we will first have to learn how to survive without their help.
In today’s world of super-fast computers, airplanes and the global economy, it’s sometimes hard to imagine a life of simplicity. It’s interesting that the more technology we develop, supposedly for the purpose of making our lives easier, the more energy we have to put into maintaining these technologies. We then have less and less time to devote to providing ourselves with the basics of life. Our society promotes the idea that people who are providing us with our necessities – our farmers, our seamstresses, our cooks, our housewives, our teachers and our garbage men - are less respectable than people who provide things that are absolutely useless like athletes, entertainers, and lawyers.
Let’s take it back to the most basic level. What if we all woke up tomorrow with nothing? What if our money wasn’t worth anything and there was no food in the grocery stores? What if the electricity and gas were suddenly turned off; who would be the most useful to us? Would it be the person who could design a computer program and hook up a whole building with internet or would it be the one who could grow food and build a house? When we look at it from this perspective, there’s not even a question. However, we take on the mentality that we will never find ourselves in this situation. The truth is that we may already be much closer to this than any of us care to admit.

This Kemetic wall relief depicts a woman giving birth squatting, which is more natural for a woman's body than lying on her back
Last month we began to take a look at the value of natural childbirth and the responsibility that women hold as humanity’s “bringers of life.” We could see that since the beginning of human existence, women have been following through with their pregnancies the only way that they were intended to do it – naturally. With modern intervention, the percentage of women who deliver naturally (in America) has dropped below 10% in a matter of 100 years. This article is a continuation of the Natural Childbirth series and will identify what is involved in returning to the natural labor process, recognize modern intervention for what it truly is, and provide tips for finding support in the decision to give birth naturally.

The idea of the proud single woman and mother is new to humanity and was introduced as a divide and conquer tactic
In today’s society, women have come to the conclusion that they have made a big accomplishment by being single and independent. It is as if we hold trophies to our single status and are proud when we can pay bills, run a home and raise children without the assistance of a man. Colonial society has done a good job convincing women that we are somehow much stronger without men playing major roles in our lives.
It is important to understand that the goal of this system is to maintain control over the masses. I am sure that the message I’m trying to convey is no secret, but we as women need to start connecting the dots in order to see the full picture. Although we’d rather be perceived as a woman who has everything under control, the reality is, we as women need to depend on someone. But take a look at the society that you turn to when you finally need some assistance. Whether we need a career, pay raise, bank loan, food stamps, etc., when we need help we turn towards the same system that controls us.
If you listen to popular culture songs on the radio and see the average sitcom, you’ll begin to see how much aspiring to being an independent woman plays a big role in the attitudes of women today. Okay, you may have a nice home, car, bank account, designer clothes and all the “finer” things in life. Once you have accomplished the goal of spending all your money for material gain and making the same ones who control you richer, how do you sleep at night? Do you snuggle up with your cuddly fur coat or your Fendi bag? Certainly it should make us women think about what our goal is and what is really important.
