More 21 Divisiones

Spirit World of Dominican VuduVODOUN – 21 NATIONS UNDER GOD SANCE TRADITION

From thebestlovespell, 2013 [Edited]

Contrary to popular belief the first Africans to set foot on Puerto Rico or the Americas for that matter where free men. Even as late as 150, a West African man who was the son of a Yoruba King and later baptized “Juan Garrido” was an African Conquistador who worked for Juan Ponce de Leon, “Puerto Rico’s first Governor” and was the first African man to set foot on Puerto Rican soil after the European ‘conquest’ and almost 100 years prior to the first Africans caught in the European slavery system to be taken to the United States “Jamestown 1607”.  Another African man, called Pedro Mejías, was married to the last Cacica Chief of Puerto Rico, Yuiza who like Pedro Mejias, was baptized a Catholic and renamed “Luisa” in order for both to be legally wed under Spanish law. Like the Dominican Anacaona in the Agua Dulce Division, Yuiza was the last female Cacica “Chief” to then become part of the Spirits venerated in Puerto Rican Sance.

Like the European enslavers, the African people came from different societies and tribes, each having their own dialect, language and culture. Haitian Vodou or Voudun consists of 21 Nations or Nasyons of Lwa – what Dominicans call los Loases or Misterios de La 21 Divisiones (also known as Budű or Vudű Dominicano.) Continue reading

ABT of Kemet

KMT TumblrKemet Gods and Deities

Pharaohs as deities
From earliest times in Kemet the pharaohs were worshipped as Gods: the son of Ra, the son of Heru, the son of Amen, etc. depending upon what period of Kemet history and what part of the country is being considered. It should be noted that prayers, sacrifices, etc. to the pharaohs were extremely rare, if they occurred at all – there seems to be little or no evidence to support an actual ‘cult’ of the pharaoh. The pharaoh was looked upon as being chosen by and favored by the Gods, his fathers.


Amen, Amun, Amon (m): Supreme God. Amen was the patron deity of the city of Thebes from earliest times, and was viewed (along with his consort Amenet) as a primordial creation-deity by the priests of Hermopolis. Amen means “the Hidden One.” Up to the Middle Kingdom Amen was merely a local god in Thebes; but when the Thebans had established their sovereignty in Kemet, Amen became a prominent deity, and by Dynasty 18 was termed the King of the Gods. His famous temple Karnak, is the largest religious structure ever built by man. According to Budge, by Dynasty 19 or 20, Amen was thought of as “an invisible creative power which was the source of all life in heaven, and on the earth, and in the great deep, and in the Underworld, and which made itself manifest under the form of Ra.” Amen was self-created, according to later traditions; according to the older Theban traditions, Amen was created by Tehuti (Thoth) as one of the eight primordial deities of creation (Amen, Amenet, Heq, Heqet, Nun, Naunet, Kau, Kauket). During the New Kingdom, Amen’s consort was Mut, “Mother”, who seems to have been a “Great Mother” archetype. Their child was the moon god Khons.  Continue reading

Earth MotherAshanti Gods

The Akan are a people from Ghana and Ivory Coast. Their number is estimated at around 20 million people in both countries. They are divided in several subgroups. There are the Asante (Ashanti), Akwamu, Akyem, Akuapem, Denkyira, Abron, Aowin, Ahanta, Anyi and Baule, among others.
The Ashanti, located in central Ghana, is the largest tribe of the region. It is the major indigenous of the Akans (Ashanti and Fanti) of Ghana. The Ashanti people were always fierce fighters. They emerged as the dominant power in 1670. It conquered other areas, declaring a monopoly on the routes to the coasts.

Aberewa: Primordial woman (see Asase Ya)

Abosom (-): the Gods, “the children of Nyame”, that assist humans on earth. They are akin to Orisha in Yoruba religion, the Vodun in West African Vodun and its derivatives, and the Alusi in Odinani. Abosom receive their power from the Creator Cod and are most often connected to the world as it appears in its natural state. Some of the most famous gods are associated with lakes, rivers, rocks, mountains and forests. These Spirits of nature are of three categories: state Gods, family or clan Gods, and Gods of the medicine man. The continued featuring of a particular god largely depends upon the ability of that Abosom to function to the satisfaction of supplicants. Continue reading
