Our Values, Practices, and Principles

LIBATION

Why do we pour libation?  We use the libation to call upon our ancestors far and near; Fathers of our fathers; mothers of our mothers; to bear witness to what we have done, and by their example, to continue to inspire us toward reclaiming our African minds, regenerating our African spirit, liberating our homeland, and reclaiming our greatness as a people.

 

We pour libation to bring into our midst their venerable African spirit, radiating their great wisdom, courage, dedication, and unyielding commitment to victory by any means necessary. It is in the honor of our Creator, our Ancestors, our Children, and their children, and their children that we pour libation.   

 

Why do we say Ashé – We say Ashé to affirm our agreement and conviction.  Ashé means “And so it is”.
