Get to know the unknown
Expand your mind and step out of your comfort zone
So lost in your perceptions
Holding them as truth
Based on the colonizers deceptions
Reality is swept to the waste side
So you can live in your illusions

HUMANITY IS FROM THE EARTH. The Earth is what we are made of. We depend on the Earth for life itself. We depend on the Earth for air, water, food, clothing, shelter and energy. Without which we would die. If humanity is cut off from the Earth, how can we live? How can we survive? In order to survive, humanity must maintain harmony with the Earth. We must return to the Earth. We can learn the process and value of staying in harmony with the Earth through the knowledge and teachings of our ancestors in Kemet.
Kemet is the traditional and original name for the cultural, historical, governmental and spiritual capitol of the traditional world which many call “ancient” Egypt. The land we now call Egypt, as defined by colonial powers, was just a part of the Kemetic realm. The Kemetic culture has been preserved by communities all over the world for thousands of years. Kemetic knowledge has been passed down for hundreds of generations, and is available to us today.

The Gods Seth (left) and Heru (right) engage in an eternal battle for the minds and hearts of humanity. Heru represents preservation of life, Seth represents destruction of life. Heru is humanity’s model for good.
BEFORE I JOINED the Earth Center, I thought I had a clear idea of what was right and what was wrong. I was raised to assimilate into an American society with American values and accepted what was presented to me. I could not help but observe the inconsistencies surrounding me as I came of age. I could not help but see the history of deceit cast upon people. I could not help but witness the unwillingness to change from an individual and structural level. This unsettled me. How can it be that the problems I had read about in history books still remain to this day? Did anyone really want to change? People often talk about the ideals of society but to me they became hollow. Empty. They became words with no value. I chose instead to live by my own ideals and principles. I studied what attracted my attention and created my own version of good. I thought this way I would be able to live a life of balance and integrity. It never occurred to me that even these new ideals I chose to use were based on the values I sought to redefine.

Traditional people across the world are being forced from their homelands in the name of wildlife conservation. These same people, who have preserved the Earth for generations, are now prohibited from practicing their traditions in their homelands.
THE WAR BETWEEN the traditional world and the modern world is waged on many fronts. Perhaps none of them is so well hidden as the battle between wildlife conservation and indigenous human rights. In the past decade, some global activists for indigenous (traditional) human rights have labeled conservation as the biggest enemy to traditional peoples, surpassing the threat of extractive industries (mining, oil drilling, logging, etc.). Such a claim may be surprising until the facts are uncovered.
The main concept behind wildlife conservation is that humans are a threat to wildlife and that, in order to preserve nature, human contact with nature must be limited in certain areas that have been designated as protected zones. These are areas where wildlife is allowed to thrive and diverse species, some of them endangered, are able to exist free from the threat of human ambitions.

BEFORE THE EUROPEAN (colonial) culture existed, there was a time when humanity was educated through traditional, initiatic schools of Kemet. There was no such thing as education without spirituality. Our very first language, known as Medu (hieroglyphics), was given to humanity by the World of the Neteru (Gods). Humanity was very aware of the spiritual aspect of things in the existence. We understood that to truly learn to preserve life, one must understand the spiritual aspect of that which they are trying to preserve.
