indigenous peoples are now called "Black", english word, by modern Europeans), original inhabitants, or earliest known population
of a land or region. Australia's indigenous people. Note: Considered by most scientist today that modern Africans (Homo sapiens), crossed over to Australia from New Guinea over an land bridge, some
60,000 or more years ago.
Adversarial: Relating to or characteristic
of an adversary; involving antagonistic elements. 1. An opponent; an enemy.
Afar: Afar is the name that people of the
Northeast use themselves. In the Amhara language they are called Adal; Arabs call them Danakil (Dankali); Oromo refer to them
as Adali and neighboring Somali groups use the term Odali. In Tigrayan they are the Teltal. Afar is a more or less homogenous
ethnic group. They are Muslims and have always 'enjoyed' a wild reputation, through stories by Arab and European imperialist,
travelers and traders. There are many Afar groups, but all consider themselves Afars. All groups speak the Afar language known
as Afar-Af, except for the Irob group of the North, who speak Saho. Other groups are the Ankala, the Adhali and the Able (near
Rarahita), the Uluhto, Ayrolasso, and Asabbakari, the Modhito (near Awsa), the Dammohoyta, and the Seka noblemen.
Afar live in Ethiopia, Eritrea, and Djibouti. Djibouti was formerly named Afar and
Issaland. Their land is the triangle north of Awash (Awash being the southern angle). They are shepherds, who also trade skins,
butter and livestock with surrounding nations. Their cattle consist of camels, cows, sheep and goats. Alternative lifestyles
have developed: there is Afar fishermen and farmers, and quite a lot of Afar in the salt mines. There is one remarkable division
in the Afar nation: each Afar person is considered to be a red Afar or a white Afar. The reds are called the Asahyammara,
the whites are the Adohyammara. The colors have nothing to do with skin color. The Afar is indigenous to Africa, so all are
dark skinned people. One theory mentions Afar living on white sand (coast) and on red sand (desert), or traditions to wear
white or red clothing.
Africa: Indigenous ancient
Africa was a "multi-ethnic" land (these multi-ethnic indigenous
peoples are now called "Black", english word, by modern Europeans). But now has many admixtures or hybridizations of Asian
and Indo-European descent (some parts of modern Africa). There are still many indigenous African prototypes
living throughout the continent and outside of the continent.
Note 1: The land boundaries of present day Africa were determined
by European elites, at the Berlin Conference of 1884 (CE). Note 2: 90.4
percent of Africa was under European or American colonial control. This was a political-economic phenomenon that began in
the 1500s whereby various European nations, conquered, and exploited large areas of the world. The last century began with
almost all countries of the world enslaved under European colonial control whose effects are still felt in the shape of neo
colonialism and the exploitative power of the few nations of the world. Slavery became a science in the colonial era in which
tens of millions of people were killed or enslaved because of their race and color. Note
3: Most of Africa today is covered by desert or grassland; forest covers less than 10 percent
of the land. Much of the continent is dominated by vast areas of plains that have uniform vegetation and landscape. Today
(2002) the percentage of Africa that is wilderness is 28 percent. Today (2002) in North America, the land that is wilderness
equal 38 percent. Note 4: There
are no jungles in Africa. (Special Note: The name "Africa" probably comes
from the Afar people, who lived (and live), at the southern end of the Red Sea. - Martin Bernal)
African: The worlds oldest inhabitants. Creators
of the world's first civilizations. The word "indigenous" means "the original" or "the first". It
describe "the original" peoples who live in Africa, the old inhabitants (called "Black", english word,
by modern Europeans), (not newcomers, or invaders). Also including the prototypical
peoples of the African ancient and modern diaspora (African ancestry or descent). Originally inhabiting areas of tropical
rain forestation, also desert dwellings.
African Consciousness: Implies that you are
fully aware of who and what you are and your situation as it relates to the world thus one would conclude that this awareness
would yield actions that are complementary to your situation i.e. improving a bad situation or maintaining a good one. One
who subscribes and practices thoughts and deeds, which promotes unity among people of African descent.
African Ethnicity: 1a. Of or relating to groups
of indigenous African people sharing a common and distinctive prototypes, national, religious, linguistic, or cultural heritage.
b. Being a member of a particular ethnic group. 2. A member of a particular indigenous African ethnic group, especially one
who maintains the language or customs of the group. Note: One final caution that is germane to the study of Africa's peoples is that the word "tribe"
is an inaccurate and inappropriate way to describe African societies. The term carries negative connotations in the Western
mind, "primitive" peoples is another false interpretation of indigenous African people. These terms are not
a designation that Westerners would use to describe most distinct ethnic groups in other societies.
African languages: Consisting of six language
families: Afro-Asiatic, Niger-Congo A, Niger-Congo B (Bantu), Nilo-Saharan, Khoi-San, and Austronesian. A language family
is defined as a group of related languages that derive from a common origin, and subdivided into branches composed of more
closely related languages.
Bantu: Bantu is a language group that belongs to
the Niger-Congo group. Bantu languages are spoken in South Cameroon, in Gabon, Republic of the Congo, Democratic Republic
of the Congo, Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Angola, Zambia, Malawi, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Botswana and South Africa. Other
important Bantu languages include Lingala, Luganda, Kikongo, and Chichewa in Central and Eastern Africa, and Shona, Sindebele,
Setswana, Sesotho, isiZulu, isiXhosa, Sepedi, and Swazi in Southern Africa. Some are usually known in English without the
class prefix (Swahili for Kiswahili, Zulu for isiZulu, etc.), and some others vary (Setswana or Tswana, Sindebele or Ndebele,
etc.). But the bare form typically does not occur in the language: in the country of Botswana the people are the Batswana,
one person is a Motswana, and the language is Setswana.
Niger-Congo languages: The Niger-Congo languages
are probably the largest group of the world in terms of different languages. Some of the African Languages with the largest
number of speakers belong to it. Most linguists link the thirty or so Kordofanian languages to the Niger-Congo family, forming
a Niger-Kordofanian language family. Several Kordofanian languages are spoken in Sudan. They are grouped together with the
Some major languages or subgroups belonging to Niger-Congo: West atlantic languages group
(this includes Wolof spoken in Senegal and Fula a language spoken across the Sahel). Mandinka a language group spoken in West
Africa (This includes Bambara, the language spoken in Mali). Kwa languages (this includes Akan spoken in Ghana). Yoruba and
Igbo spoken in Nigeria. Gur languages spoken among others in Côte d'Ivoire, Togo, Burkina Faso and Mali. Kru languages. Adamawa-Ubangi
languages (This includes Sango spoken in the Central African Republic). A very large subgroup are the Bantu languages which
include Swahili or Swahili language. Note 1: Wolof and the language spoken in ancient Kemet (Egypt) were closely related. (Special Note: Proven in Professor Ivan Van Sertima's book, Egypt Revisited).
Note 2: Ancient
African languages represented a stage of linguistic development which predated the division of the languages of western Asia
and Africa into semitic and hamitic branches. These ancient African or Afro-asiatic languages actually separated around 12,000
B.C.E., the ancient African languages was the great parent language of these two language groups or branches, ("mother tongue")
from which they all descended.
Note 3: According to recent estimates, the number
of actively spoken languages in the world today is around 6,000. More than 1,400 of those languages belong to the Niger-Congo
family from Africa, and about 1,200 are in the Austronesian family from Madagascar, Indonesia, Australia, the Pacific Islands,
and New Zealand.

life. It symbolizes the unification of the feminine and masculine forces in the universe and the creation of new life. The
oval depicts the womb, the vertical shaft depicts the phallus and the horizontal bar expresses the coming into existence of
a new life. Note 1: The Ankh is
generally the most recognizable symbol of the ancient Africans in northeast Africa. Note 2: The Ankh was generally used or expressed in ancient Kemetic art,
giving honor to people or things that provided or has "life giving powers," such as women, gods and goddess, kings, queens,
the sun, earth (dark soil) and water. Note 3: It was later adapted by Coptic Christians as their cross.

Arab: A member of a group of people inhabiting
Arabia, in western Asia, whose language and Islamic religion spread widely throughout western Asia and northern Africa from
the seventh century. The term “Arab” does not have the same meaning as does “Italian” or “Japanese.”
Rather, it is more like the term “American," it refers to a roughly common language, geographic territory, and philosophy
without a precise ethnic definition. Perhaps unlike many other labels we use to describe each other, the term “Arab”
is one that one applies to one's self rather that a label that is given by others.

"bar-bar," for someone who stutters, is unintelligible, or does not speak Greek. The Greeks, like most ancient peoples, did
not attribute much meaning to physical appearance. In ancient Greece, language was the difference that mattered, because it
indicated who was not Greek. Some historians believe that the first to be labeled barbarian were the Scythians of circa 500
B.C., who lived northeast of the Black Sea and were very fair skinned. Ideas of so-called race did not exist during antiquity.
Barbaric: 1. Of, relating to, or characteristic

Usage Note: The word "black" is a
english word and is in the Indo-European language family. In Old English it was blaec, closely related to its equivalents
in Old High German (blah, blach) and Old Norse (blakkr). The word has alway been used to demonize indigenous people. Europeans
and European Americans used the word too demonize brown skinned people globally. And to convince themselves and the world
that these indigenous people are the opposite of Europeans. Who also decided to call themselves "white." Note 2: The term "black" directed towards indigenous people was and still is meant to create an antagonistic
and adversarial role as opposite to the term "white."
The Oxford English Dictionary contains evidence of the use of the word black with reference
to African and Aboriginal peoples, some say as early as 1400 CE in Europe, and certainly the word has been in wide use in
so-called racial and ethnic contexts ever since. Do to very strong teachings, propaganda and demonization by Europeans, people
with dark brown skin are now called black globally. It wasn't until the late 1960s that black (or Black) gained its present
status as a ethnonym with strong connotations of ethnic pride, replacing the then-current term Negro among people of African
descent. Note 3: Also see the word
Negro. Reflecting the profound changes taking place in the African American communities during the tumultuous years of the
civil rights and social empowerment movements. The recent success of the term African American offers an interesting contrast
in this regard. Though by no means a modern coinage, African American achieved sudden prominence at the end of the 1980s when
several people, including Rev. Jesse Jackson, championed it as an alternative ethnonym for Americans of African descent. The
appeal of this term is obvious, alluding as it does not to imaginary skin color but to an ethnicity constructed of geography,
history, and culture, and it won rapid acceptance from people of African descent globally, alongside similar forms such as
Phoenicians later in history by the Greeks) Before the Hebrews first migrated there around 1800 B.C.,
the land of Canaan was occupied by Canaanites. The people had their traditional religious customs. "Between 3000 and 1100
B.C., Canaanite civilization covered what is today Israel, the West Bank, Lebanon and much of Syria and Jordan. Special Note: Those who remained in the Jerusalem hills after
the Romans expelled the Jews [in the second century A.D.] were a potpourri: farmers and vineyard growers, pagans and converts
to Christianity, descendants of the Arabs, Persians, Samaritans, Greeks and old Canaanite tribes. - Marcia Kunstel and
Joseph Albright, "Their Promised Land."
The present-day Palestinians' ancestral heritage: (The Romans
created the term Palestine) But all these [different peoples who had come to Canaan] were additions, sprigs grafted
onto the parent tree...And that parent tree was Canaanite...[The Arab invaders of the 7th century A.D.] made Moslem converts
of the natives, settled down as residents, and intermarried with them, with the result that all are now so completely Arabized
that we cannot tell where the Canaanites leave off and the Arabs begin. - Illene Beatty, "Arab and Jew in the Land of Canaan."
Note 1: In modern times the British
once invaded and occupied the areas that is now known as Palestine and Israel. With the British Mandate
and the Balfour Declaration of 1917, in which Britain recognized Jewish demand for a homeland, the Jewish population increased
from 10% in 1918 to 30% in 1936. In 1937 it was decided to partition Palestine with Jewish and Arab states, this idea was
dropped as WWII loomed. After WWII, European Jewish immigration grew to such an extent that Britain, trying to avert confrontation
between Arab and Jew slowed the process resulting in Jewish terrorism against British troops. The Palestine problem was submitted
to the UN in 1947 who passed the resolution of partition. Britain ended the mandate on 14th May 1948 when the independent
state of Israel in Palestine was established. In spite of the UN plan of 1947 Palestine ceased to exist as a political entity
after the Arab Israeli war of 1948. Problems in the area continue.

are indigenous to other parts of the world has been proven to be a fantasy or at best pseudoscientific. After the invasion
of Europeans in modern times, this believe start with the idea that only great achievement can only be possible if the people
and or history were "white" in spirit. This obsessive belief system gave rise to a newer concept that in some way the people
and or history had to be connected the a great "white" or Caucasian so-called race of people. Unfortunately because of social
conditioning, this belief is still placed in the educational systems in Europe and the United States. This concept is no longer
in by scientific use in the serious study of Africa.

of European descent. Over a 40-year period, the Homestead Act gave away, for free, 270 million acres of what had been American
Indian Territory, almost all of it to white people. The Naturalization Act allowed only "free white persons" to adopt citizenship,
thus opening our doors to European immigrants, but barring Asian Americans and other groups. Racial barriers to citizenship
were not removed until 1952. The Federal Housing Administration made it possible for millions of average European Americans,
but not others to own a home for the first time. (see word segregation below). And the Social Security Act specifically exempted
two occupations from coverage: farm-workers and domestics, both largely non-white.

Kemet: Kmt, pronounced or vocalized as Kemet
(of course it can be spelled in many ways), is what these indigenous ancient Africans in the northeastern area of Africa,
called their land during the dynastic or kingdom periods. Aigyptos or Aegyptus (Egypt) is what the ancient Greeks called this
area thousands of years later. Also called Misr in Arabic or the biblical name Mizraim by the ancient Hebrews. The meaning
of Kemet, dark of skin, as well as dark of land, earth, or ground (called black skin and black soil or land by modern Europeans).
Note 1: This highland region may be the Kemites "Mountain of the Moons " region in present day Uganda, in east Africa, the
area from which the civilization and goods of Kem, originated. The rock art of the Saharan Highlands support the Egyptian
traditions that in ancient times they lived in the Mountains of the Moon. The Predynastic Egyptian mobiliar art and the Saharan
rock art share many common themes including, characteristic boats (Farid 1985,p. 82), men with feathers ontheir head (Petrie
,1921,pl. xvlll,fig.74; Raphael, 1947, pl.xxiv, fig.10; Vandier, 1952, p.285, fig. 192), false tail hanging from the waist
(Vandier,1952, p.353; Farid, 1985,p.83; Winkler 1938,I, pl.xxlll) and the phallic sheath (Vandier, 1952, p.353; Winkler ,
1938,I , pl.xvlll,xx, xxlll). Due to the appearance of aridity in the Mountains of the Moon the Proto-Saharans migrated first
into Nubia and thence into Kem.
The Proto-Saharan origin of the Kemites explain the fact that the Kushites (Cushite)
were known for maintaining the most ancient traditions of the Kemites as proven when the XXVth Dynasty or Kushite (Cushite)
Dynasty ruled ancient Egypt. Farid (1985, p.85) wrote that "To conclude, it seems that among Predynastic foreign relations,
the [Proto-]Saharians were the first to have significant contact with the Nile Valley, and even formed a part of the Predynastic
population" (emphasis author). The ancestors of the Kemites originally lived in Nubia. The Nubian origin of Egyptian civilization
is supported by the discovery of artifacts by archaeologists from the Oriental Institute at Qustul. On a stone incense burner
found at Qustul we find a palace facade, a crowned King sitting on a throne in a boat, with a royal standard placed before
the King and hovering above him, the falcon god Horus. The white crown on this Qustul king was later worn by the rulers of
Upper Egypt " (p.26).
Note 2: The word chemistry
comes from the word Kemet, or Chemi, which of course means black, dark or carbon. Note 3: The ancient Kamites also
referred to their land as Ta-Meri (Beloved Land).
Note 4: According to the Bible
the ancient Egyptians (Kamites) were descended from Ham (meaning Africa) under the name Mizraim. Ham had four sons: Cush,
Mizraim, Phut, and Canaan (Genesis 10:6). The name "Mizraim" is the name given for Egypt in the Hebrew Old Testament. Many
Bibles will have a footnote next to the name "Mizraim" explaining that it means "Egypt." But, the word "Kemet" is actually
an ethnic term being a derivative of the word "Khem" (Cham or Ham) which means "dark," "burnt" or "black." The Bible, in the
Old Testament, repeatedly refers to Egypt as the "Land of Ham" (i.e., Psalm 105:23, 27; 106:22).
Note 5: History of Herodotus
(440 BC), Translated by Professor George Rawlinson, Edited by Manuel Komroff (copyrighted in 1928, by Dial Press)(Tudor Publishing
Company, 1939). Unfortunately, the newer re-published books of Herodotus has been tampered with. These comments has been removed.
These are comments that Herodotus made regarding the ancient Egyptians: Link 1
There can be no doubt that the Colchians are an Egyptian race. Before I heard
any mention of the fact from others, I had remarked it myself. After the thought had struck me, I made inquiries on the subject
both in Colchis and in Egypt, and I found that the Colchians had a more distinct recollection of the Egyptians, than the Egyptians
had of them. Still the Egyptians said that they believed the Colchians to be descended from the army of Sesostris. My own
conjectures were founded, first, on the fact that they are black-skinned and have woolly hair, which certainly amounts to
but little, since several other nations are so too; but further and more especially, on the circumstance that the Colchians,
the Egyptians, and the Ethiopians, are the only nations who have practised circumcision from the earliest times.
Note 6: The southern origin
of the ancient Kamites (Egyptians) of antiquity who were indigenous Africans is based on a historical message found in the
highly respected Papyrus of Hunefer from the Book of the Dead, or more appropriately, the Book of the Coming Forth by Day
Into Night. It states, "We came from the beginning of the Nile where the god Hapi dwells, at the foothills of the mountain
of the moon" (which is Kilimanjaro between Kenya and Tanzania or Rwenzori in Uganda). Coincidentally, this is the same location
where some of the world's oldest human fossils have been found.
Note 7: Today the true images
of the ancient Egyptian (Kamites) are rarely found in the cities but in the country sides and farmlands of Egypt. This is
particularly true the further south one travels in Egypt. Most of the Egyptians in the cities carry an admixed ancestry of
Asian and European, but mostly Asian from the immigration and invasions of various people into Egypt throughout the centuries.
Cleopatra VII was more then likely darker then todays Greek people, however she was considered of Greek origin because the
Greeks once invaded and occupied Egypt and she was descended from a Greek rulers.
Note 8: Geographers refer
to northern Egypt as "Lower Egypt" and to southern Egypt as "Upper Egypt." This is because the Nile River in Egypt, unlike
other rivers of the world, flows from the south to the north. So up the Nile is actually going south and that is why the southern
part of Egypt is called "Upper Egypt" and down the Nile is actually going north and that is why the northern part of Egypt
is referred to as "Lower Egypt." In ancient times in Africa the border of southern (or "Upper") Egypt was much further south
than where it is today. Upper Egypt in ancient times extended well into what is now the country of Sudan known in ancient
times as Nubia or Kush (Cush). It was from Upper Egypt (Nubia or Kush) that the first pharaoh of Egypt Narmer (also known
as Menes) went out to conquer and unify all of Egypt into one nation or kingdom. It was from here (the South) that the original
ancestors of the Egyptians, following the direction of the Nile River north, settled the land of Egypt. The Egyptians themselves
recorded in their writings that their ancestors came from the south. For example, the Edfu text (which is an inscription still
found in the Temple of Horus at Edfu) translation states: "Several thousand years ago, we were led by our king from the
South to settle up the Nile Valleys."
Note 9: (Modern invasions) Egypt
once invaded and occupied by the Turkish Ottoman Empire, Egypt was invaded by Napoleon (the French) in 1798 to try to restrict
British trade with the east. They were driven out in 1801 by British and Turkish armies. In 1802 Egypt was restored to the
Turkish Empire but ruled almost independently from Cairo by its pashas. With the building and subsequent opening of the Suez
Canal in 1869 Egypt became strategically important hastening Britain's purchase of the canal in 1875. A nationalist revolt
caused Britain to protect its interests by invading and occupying Egypt in 1882. Britain ruled the country through its agent
and Consul General Lord Cromer and in 1914 it became a British Protectorate. With the establishing of a constitutional monarchy
headed by King Faud I, Egypt was granted nominal independence on February 28, 1922. Britain retained control of defense and
communications. Anglo-Egyptian Alliance in 1936 ensured a British garrison remained for twenty years and then gradual withdrawal,
but the plan was interrupted by WWII that saw heavy fighting between the British and Axis forces in the northern areas of
Africa. Events after WWII particularly with the emerging state of Israel caused major political problems that in 1952 saw
the overthrow of the monarchy led by Colonel Nasser of the Egyptian army.
Note 10: (Summary of modern invasions) The decline of this ancient African kingdom started after the seventh century
B.C.E., falling to various conquerors including the Assyrians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Turks, French, and British.
