ANCIENT AFRICANS WERE THE FIRST AMERICANS

The Amen Par Ankh is a Sacred Temple of Life. in the heart of Kansas city Missouri. We are an outreach center for our Youth, and gnome of Families for mentoring and support. We are Environmentalists and a cooperative of Creators- Green Artisans and Craft people who are rebuilding a Gnome Mafia (healthy place to live.) We venerate Ma the Creator of the Yoniverse! We venerate our AKU (Ancestors), to connect with all Ankh (all living), to live in harmony with creation, following our highest version of self the KRST- Ausar's mandate to grow and produce life in benevolence and abundance- "to be fruitful and multiply"... we are establishing Amen Ankh Akademy STEAM(science technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) in the heart of Kansas City. Mo.



We know that ALL "HUE-MEN Beings come from MAMA AFRICA The Cradle of all human civilization, and all Black Coiled hair peoples are descendants of the Ancient Ancestors, known before the 10,000 years of Yurugu, the religious historical Adam and Eve caucasian arrived. We are the Ancient Original ones, known as BES- Twa/pygmy, Khoisan, (gatherer-hunters), the Nubian (pastoral Shepherd Kings), KMT- Kemetic (Agriculturalist), Nordic, Pagan, Untouchable East Indian, Caribbean West Indian, the Xi Asians, Australian Aborigines, and Indigenous Americans!! Our Ancestors Presence existed on the planet beyond the times of Native American, Pacific Islanders, or  Mongolian migrant peoples. Our Ancient Ancestors inhabited the Planet and spread civilizations, following the vortexes of the living waterways, and tectonic plates of the planet to build the mounds, and pyramid crystal prisms. Our totems, signs and symbols are all over the world, in every spiritual system and society. We are known as KMT- Ka-Ma-Ta (Body/Land of Mother Eartha), also known as the Sacred Children of Ra (the Sun)!  We are known by our dark complexion and our coiled hair. 


Our Aku traveled all over  Mama Eartha over many aeons of time.We were here in the Aries age, before Taurus and the Piscean ages, and now we enter the Aquarian. We are found in the 5 oceans, and 7 continental divides, Africa, Asia, Antarctica, Australia, Europe and the Americas. Before many of the Asians crossed the Bering straits to co-mingle with us as Native American Tribes, we had established and raised our pyramids and temehu (Tehenu/Obelisk) and mounds, with signs and symbols of our MA, BES and KMT Ancestors. "Indian" is included from Hindustan(modern day India, Pakistan, and Uzbekistan). The Ancients were not described by any of these words and misnomers given by society, so why should we go by them? We are the Original People, the Ancient Ones! Who we are is very imperative in knowing our Ancient Nationality, Culture, Language, Heritage, and Legacy!  Here in the Americas, we are the families of the Olmec, Aztec, Mayans, Washitaw, Yamassee, Iroquois, Seminoles, Blackfoot, Cherokee, Choctaw, Natchez, Creek, Tainos, Arawak, Caribs, Ciboneys, and other peoples who are considered to be the offspring of the Ancient Original Ones. So, the Asians are descendants of Africans.



BLACK Melanin rich peoples ARE The REAL ANCIENTS OF THE PLANET! Our Melanin peoples WERE ALSO THE FIRST AMERICANS !!! The Ancient Original People erected the great pyramids and mounds in Amarukah, Amexem(Americas), and everywhere globally where these Signs, Symbols, Pyramids and Mounds can be found! It is monolithic mythology to say that we only arrive in the Americas by slave ships as enslaved Africans, for we were already here in the West before the palefaces arrived! 
We know that there is evidence of our presence here!  

YES! EVERY HUMAN COMES FROM AFRICA! AFRICA IS THE SOURCE. With that being said; Have you ever noticed that so called Native Americans rarely get DNA testing? They have discarded this science to perpetuate their beliefs and mythologies, while debunking the facts that they acquired their spirituality and culture from the Ancient peoples of Africa, who migrated over aeons of time, to established civilizations -in the Americas!
THERE ARE NO ABORIGINAL/INDIGENOUS AMERICANS!

There is NO Native American DNA! So, Native Americans have AFRICAN in their DNA too! Mongolian Native Americans are not the model of the origin of human beings or Americans. AFRICAN DNA is that model! The presence of Africans in America predated Columbus. READ Ivan Van Sertima's "They Came Before Columbus", and many other Books that document the presence of established African Civilization in the Americas BEFORE Columbus, the Mayflower AND the Trans Atlantic Human Trafficking genocide war on Melanin people- Bennet's Before the Mayflower. 
AFRICANS CAME TO THE AMERICAS INDEPENDENT OF CAPTURE, ENSLAVEMENT OR EUROPEAN INFLUENCES!

In fact, African people would often buy their wifes and husbands from slave sales- for the purpose of emancipation. Many Africans and Mongolian Americans were married and had large families! The false myth and monolithic perception that Afrikans ONLY came to the Americas by force through the trans Atlantic middle passage, must be shut down so that the truth can be taught to ALL children and our human dignity can be restored! May African went to the Americas to find and rescue their stolen Afrakan family members as well.

As every color comes from Black, so follows every HUMAN!

These "so called indigenous native" Americans have denied and exiled their very Afrikan Ancestral existence- Rejected their own Afrikan Mothers, to place themselves like an elbow patch on a shirt, into the false historical context of race supremacist. They don't want you to break their spell. Imagine, living in your home with your mother and Father. An Asian man knocks on the door of your ranch home with land, water, cattle and fish... and says, "I love your house!" He proceeds to force his way in and kills your father and rapes your mother... This murderer, has now taken over control of your household and impregnated your mother with his mulatto child. You must either comply or die with this false perception... These "so called Indigenous" Americans have agreed to a Mythology of their beginning story. They have rejected scientific fact of DNA testing, to embrace their "belief system"... Afrikans are the first/oldest humans on the planet! They spread and established civilizations across the planet...

EVERY CULTURE ON THE GLOBE USES OUR SIGNS AND SYMBOLS!


BES the Ancient Twa Mother


The Ancients are Spiritual shamans and healers. It is time that we return to the Spiritual and healing Ways of our ancient ancestors, who walked and paved the way before us. We recognize not only the Patriarchs but the Matriarchs as well, for there is a MOTHER AND SUN feminine/masculine balance in everything.
You will find Pyramids and mounds as the foundation of civilization all over the planet- not just in Egypt

The Blackfoot, Natchez, Yamasee, Washita, Muscogee, Creek, Seminoles, Catawba, etc., were all first Black people. The oldest people on the planet are melaninated people from Africa. Africans peopled the planet. Our people may have "gotten lighter" over the years because we are many nations and Gnome societies. We adopted people because our societies - were not race conscious.) The stealing of our land and resources is a reflection of the philosophy of manifest destiny and imperialism by the US. It is the story of an imperialist conqueror! Now, our Black Native Aku/ Ancestors are being removed from the status of Native American and pushed into extinction because deniers are classifying us as Black freedmen of African descent and not Aboriginal Native Americans!
But know, we were in America aeons before the Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria and before the Mayflower! Many horrors & slaughters happened to us before the transatlantic/ middle passage captured and imported people from Africa!!!

El, Bey, Dey, Al and Ali. These five titles belong to the "Five Civilized Tribes". These tribes are.
El - Cherokee.
Bey - Choctaw.
Dey - Seminole.
Al - Creek.
Ali - Chickasaw
The Title El means God or power, Executive, Law Maker
Bey means ruler or landlord, Enforcer, Officer, 
Dey means knowledgeable , 
Al means the same as El (Feminine/Goddess), 
Ali mean exalted or most high.

 The BLACK AFRAKAN Womb of Mankind is the MOTHER OF ALL PEOPLE! 

"I’M EVERY WOMAN!"

If you submit to DNA testing, ALL MELANIN PEOPLE's origins will always come from AFRICA!

THERE ARE NO INDIGENOUS PEOPLES IN AMERICA! EVERYONE IS A MIGRANT! 

MAMA AFRICA IS THE CRADLE OF ALL HUE-MAN Civilizations! 

YES! Many African societies were in America BEFORE COLUMBUS. 



WE WERE THE FIRST TO MIGRATE ALL OVER THE PLANET! We were in Europe, China, India, Australia, Hawaii ect ect ect!- EVERY ORIGINAL GOD WAS BLACK! We must disabuse these monolithic concepts that we ONLY Come from America or Afraka, or Asia, or came here ONLY as slaves from Afraka Alkebulan, (Muri Tah!). 

The only difference between Americans and Africans is TIME! 
ULTIMATELY WE ARE ARGUING OVER TIME AND NATIONALITY- NOT ORIGIN! 

THERE ARE NO RACES! RACE IS A POLITICAL CONCEPT FOR CONTROL OF POWER.

AFRAKANS ARE NOT A MONGREL SLAVE RACE! - BLACK MOORS AND HEBREWS ARE AFRICANS TOO- NOT ASIANS! We did not come to America as precarious ship castaways! Our African Ancestors were Highly successful navigators and civilization builders way before 2000 years ago! Remember, It was Black Moors who navigated the ships of the Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria! Moors civilized the Mediterranean emerging caucasian europeans for almost 1000 years!

Below is the video of Ivan Van Sertima: They Came Before Columbus



We have people of color- then we have the pink people!

 I Am -Taro, Presley, Brown-AmenRa- one of the last surviving bloodlines of Natchez American Nations, who did not walk the trail of tears to Oklahoma. Eye am also TUTSI! EYE AM PROUD TO KNOW MY FAMILY ORIGINS! We have chosen to align and support our brothers and sisters, who claim the bloodlines of their Ancestors who had come to America through the trans-Atlantic War, invasion and human trafficking. US Invaders attacked Africa, Just as they did America. How Can we "all" embrace this issues of Indigenous, Americans, when many indigenous Americans still believe the false race supremacy propaganda that aboriginal people of America cannot possess African features or come from Africa before Columbus? Africans are just as indigenous to America as anyone of Asian ancestry migrants. Black skinned, nappy haired people have always been here, and are not just "grafted" into Native communities by enslavement. To believe and perpetuate these erroneous concepts, is to also reinforce the lies that Black skinned and nappy haired peoples are inferior sub humans, which only plays into white supremacy! Many so called Indigenous Americans are rejecting and removing our Black Ancestors from birth records and registration rolls of Native American sovereign societies, yet more and more of caucasian mayflower invader ancestors, are replacing our people and receiving sovereign acceptance. I AM NATCHEZ! ‪#‎amenankh‬ ‪#‎iamnatchez‬ #iamancient

US invaders ARE NOT AMERICANS! The pilgrim Quakers, Mennonites, Protestants, Catholic Christians etc., who came to the Americas, came with the same evangelical mission. it was a conquering war mission to proselytize all people, and torture them to give up their way of life and their natural land access, to submit and be subject to their western ways! Their monthly holidays are the ritual, symbolic re-enactments of the slaughters, massacres, murders, assassinations, and destruction of the environment, by this society for their own survival. We live among them on our own lands, that they now occupy. 
November is Native American History Month Yet, the only stories we hear are about a “Thanksgiving” of pilgrim invaders who stole-Killed and destroyed our people, and a Black Friday that does not reflect the dignity of our people!

We give thanks and praise always to the Great Supreme Divine Spirit Kandaki MA NUT!




She is the True Creator whom we sacredly recognize. Honors to the Earth and the Universe whom the Great Spirit Amen has made, and all elements connected to us. Thanks to the Ancients whose Spirits we ask to surround and guide us on this ancient level. It is time that we reclaim what is rightfully ours as the Spiritual Nation and Royal Priesthood! We are connected to the Ancients by Spirit no matter what earthly area you reside at.

The Amen Par Ankh is a movement of Gnomes, We respect the Sisters; Mothers of Civilization! Despite what spirituality, faith, religion, or movement you embrace, let us learn our Ancient Past and move ahead in the Future! Knowledge is POWER! We call on all aboriginal people to join us to honor and fulfill our Aku(ancestors) in Solutions that protect the land, living creatures, air and water. We are stewards to Nature and the earth. We connect with the universe, in meditation to actively live in harmony with creation. We are called and mandated to repair the violations to the environment and live in peace and in the spirit of justice. We must move to protect the voiceless in caring for Geb/Ta- Mother Earth. We wish to share in the knowledge of Aboriginal People of this Planet. Although Black is the essence of all things, the spectrum of numerous colors, we do not identify ourselves as Negro, Black, or African American. We are not religious cultures of Moors, Christians, Hebrews, Islam or Israelites, which some people preferably classify themselves.

Kansas City EMWOT Sponsors Will Allen


Kansas City Hosts Urban Agriculture Pioneer Will Allen

Founder of Growing Power, Inc., teaches aquaponics workshop, gives keynote address.
By Adenike AmenRa
On August 27, Kansas Citians had the opportunity to meet and learn from one of Urban Agriculture’s most prominent innovators and advocates: Will Allen. As Founder and CEO of Growing Power, Allen and a crew of builders, accepted an invitation by Kansas City’s Green Acres Urban Farm and Research Project to spend a day here in town, sharing insights and technologies on the topic of “Abolish Food Deserts.” The day started with a keynote lecture at the Discovery Center in Kansas City, MO, in which Allen discussed some of the production technologies he developed at Growing Power, including aquaponics, composting and year-round production.

Allen also discussed urban agriculture in the broader context of food sovereignty and food deserts.

After attending a reception with youth at the KCMO Bluford Library, Allen spent the afternoon conducting a Master Building Workshop at East High School on Van Brunt Bl. At this event, folks learned to build aquaponics bunk bed systems designed to raise fish and vegetables in a nutrient-cycling unit. More than 30 participants acquired important food production and farming skills which they are able to take back into their communities and pass on to others.

Altogether some 150 people came out throughout the day to listen to, learn from and be inspired by

Allen. Kansas City Mayor Sly James authorized the presentation of the Key to the City to Will Allen,

which was presented by Assistant to the City Manager, Kimiko Black Gilmore. Brook Hollingsworth,

Lincoln University’s first aquaponics graduate, and KCMO councilwoman Sharon Sanders Brooks were

also in attendance.

Will Allen is founder and CEO of Growing Power, Inc., headquartered in Milwaukee, WI, with project

offices in Chicago and Madison. He received a MacArthur Foundation “Genius" Award in 2008, appeared

in Bon App├ętit and Oprah Magazines, was named as one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People

in 2010, and appeared in the award-winning documentary FRESH. Among the many urban farmers and

activists inspired by Allen is Kansas City resident Sasteh Mosley, co-founder of the Green Acres Urban Farm and Research Project and CEO of the non-profit organization East Meets West of Troost (EMWOT). Mosley's farming career began in Milwaukee with Will Allen at Growing Power in 1993. Back then he wore many hats including marketing, wholesale purchasing, CSA organizing and Alabama farm research. His Growing Power experience laid solid groundwork for his life work of making the

connections between growing food, community development, and neighborhood empowerment.

The Green Acres' aquaponics project is a partnership between the City of Kansas City, MO, the KCMO

School District and other organizations. This project utilizes campus greenhouses at East High School to

launch an aquaponics program and initiative that will provide fresh food to the community, education, and hands-on learning for students. Through common goals, partnerships and innovative thinking, all

involved in this effort are chipping away at the problems of urban food deserts, compromised educational systems, crime and a lack of jobs. This project will feed people while nurturing their souls through a new connection to food, agriculture and aquaponics.

AMEN ANKH Urban Farm in Kansas City Missouri

 AMEN ANKH URBAN FARM

For Urban Families


Call us For Appointment: (816) 839-7945 

Welcome to Urban neighborhood! We own an Urban Farm right "in da hood" of Kansas City, MO. There are so many green opportunities to live locally in the Urban communities of Kansas City.  It is so important that Afrikan Americans are models of successful families and property owners.
 
This is the best time to live in an urban neighborhood. With the Green Urban Agricultural transformations, growing food is an opportunity to support green economic development. Being able to grow a tomato right on your property, and sell that tomato to your neighbor, is empowering. This cultivates more vocational and positive entrepreneurial skills in our youth, as well as giving access to local, nutritious, healthy, naturally grown foods. The morning invites the neighborhood to stop by the farm. People are walking their dogs, or heading to work, It is a pleasure to be able to share my porch with someone who just walked down the street, and be able to offer a cup of coffee, tea, a smoothie, or a slice of zucchini bread or to converse with a driver who slows down, to ask about a tomato or pepper that caught their eye.  At the Amen Par Ankh(Sacred House of Life), we share wholistic Healing, Stress and Health counseling, Life Coaching, STEMM Education, Foraging, Food Preservation, Healing Jewelry, Mandalas,  Yoga Classes, Meditation and Massage Therapy for wellness and healing of our community.


88-312


Facing a stalemate between the food movement and real estate developers, Eastside representatives turned to alternative systems for aid. Former State Representative  and City council member, Sharon Sanders Brooks- along with Melba Curls, Cindy Circo and Terry Riley all saw the positive impact that less restrictive ordinances would provide for their constituents and supported amended ordinances, as a part of a 10-3 favor for reducing unemployment, and Community security. This also provided employment for Local At Risk Youth, the prison reentry populations and the elimination of food deserts. These community leaders looked to the mainstream food movement advocates to assist local “Agriculturalist and Green community advocates to oppose the real estate developers who were more concerned with the market value of real property and Re-gentrification.

Facing major economic development issues, eastside leaders leaned to the side of less regulation to create a pro-business environment.


A company named Bad Seed and many other Urban Agricultural Businesses, on the southwest side of urban Kansas City ran into difficulties, in past with Residential codes and maintaining a successful business.


It has become difficult for residential code inspectors to acknowledge and incorporate Urban Agricultural presence that has been passed since 2010, and still continue to write code citations on chapter 49 and Chapter 52 codes. Their lack of receptiveness to Urban Farms that are growing in residential neighborhoods, now that they are covered by 88 ordinances can be daunting. We have been successful in referring and identifying many herbs and naturally growing plant that were once considered as rank weeds, like Plantain, Poke Root, Clover, Lambs Quarter and Dandelion off their violation list. Since the inspectors only have jurisdiction and training on residential codes as residential properties, they are not referring these urban farms to the planning and zoning department that would cover the appropriate ordinances for this area.  These ordinances have only been challenged by the few disadvantaged Black farmers and growers, who are virtually ignored by city prosecutors and Judges. This results in needless court dates, fines, and possible warrants on fledgling urban farmers who are already working diligently to emerge and compete in the already competitive food and growers market. This also creates an anti-business environment in the already devastated low economic development areas of 64127 -28 on the eastside of Kansas city, contrary to the support of the urban plans and downtown city hall leadership and representatives of Kansas City. 

This makes it extremely difficult for activists and advocates to provide hope for distressed and disadvantaged at-risk youths, trying to escape underground economies and a failing job market.


We are also working to remediate water usage, using rain barrels and conserving gray water for reuse in the growing fields. We look to the future, where it is commonplace to incorporate urban agriculture in the cycle of urban residential living.

I learned about Urban farming at an early age. I woke up in the morning with a rooster crowing from my backyard.



As an educator in the Kansas City public schools, I had often enjoyed the convenience of walking or using the bus or riding my bike, to get to the local school where I worked. My students and their parents always knew me from the neighborhood. Living in the city also made it easy to be involved and to support school games and activities, not only for my own children, but my students as well. In the mornings my neighbors will see me working on the farm, watering herbs and food, in our lot and front yard, while students pass by, on their way to school. I have actually had people drive up to the farm and pay for their order of food right from their cars. Students have often stopped by my home for tutoring and counseling. I even get visits from graduates who show me their newborns. By being in the metropolitan area, my daughter, Grandson and I love to visit the local shops, museum of art, libraries and other attractions. There are still a few Afrikan American Cafes, restaurants, events, concerts and a lot of local, small farmer's markets.

We need more Afrikan American families to stand their ground to rebuild an urban community and then to, encourage our children to inherit wealth of land and property investment, by perpetuating and returning to their family homesteads, instead of starting from scratch, every generation. It is important to teach our children about financial literacy and green vocational and entrepreneurial career paths. We need to change our perceptions from telling our children to "get out of the ghetto," instead, to encourage them to get their education to return to their communities to infuse and reinvigorate their neighborhoods with new green solutions for the future. We need to pursue more green economic sustainable development for the future of the next generation.

Capitol to Abolish Food Deserts in Kansas City

Seed Capital to Abolish Food Deserts
From the Cyber Pen of Sasteh Meter Mosley   
November 6th, 2011

To download your Application links: http://www.emwot.ws 

Over the last three years, I have worked with many of you individually to gain more Food Sovereignty for the residents of the East side of Kansas City.  Now I would like to present a funding stream here in Kansas City that can provide the necessary start-up funds for farms, community food projects, stipends for workers, infrastructure for existing pantries, land acquisition, or any other reasonable expenses to wash away any obstacle to producing healthy foods. I am in Oakland, California for the Community Food Security Coalitions with thousands of other in the country that realize we have to take the next step in the Food Movement.
With the announcement that Aldi will open in 2011, It was suggested that the Food Desert in East Kansas City, MO will be eliminated.  Unfortunately, the definition of having a grocery store within a mile (12 city blocks) is woefully inadequate to address the nutritional challenges of low income and high health risk residents.  Several organizations have convened groups to define solutions: 
1.  2008 NBUF Food System meetings at Dubois Learning Center with Bill Grace (DLC), The Beys (Moorish Science Temple), Kenyattas (Seed Restaurant), and Sasteh Mosley (Amen Christ Temple)
2.  2009 Black Agenda Group present Jim Nunley Training on Health Care Foundation, Rosa James (NAACP), Carol Coe, Debra Mann (Emmanuel Community Center)
3.  2009 Stimulus Funds Economic Development Meetings on Creation of Green Jobs (Urban Farming), Marlon Hammonds and Sasteh Mosley, Craig Bland (Freedom Inc), Clyde McQueen (FEC), Ken Bacchus (Economic Development Chair BAG and Freedom Inc.), Carol Coe (Convener), 19 other Activists
4.  2010 Urban Farming Ordinance and Food Policy Summit,  Beth Gothstein (Organizer), Terry Riley, Sharon Sanders Brooks, Cindy Circo, Melba Curls, John Sharp, and Ed Ford (Ten Voted in Favor of Ordinance), KCCUA, GCFPC, Bad Seed, EMWOT, Green Acres
5.  2011 Urban Farm Movement, Will Allen Abolish the Food Desert Event by Green Acres, Chicken Ordinance KCMO, Green Acres Urban Farm and Research Project Aquaponics Program (KCMO, KCMSD, BEU), EMWOT Urban Farm initiatives and services (Real Estate and Land Acquisition for farming, Farm Tours, At-Risk-Youth with Green Careers, Tilling Services, Music CDs, Health Classes), Get Growing Kansas City (CultivateKC.org, KC Community Gardens, and Lincoln University) Adenike AmenRa (AmenRa ParAnkh- Urban Farms, Wheatgrass, Food Preservation Classes)
Let's all take the next step in this movement.  As other movements plan to come into the East side of Kansas City, let’s make sure we continue to do the work to ensure that residents have the healthy, locally grown food they need to be successful.  Let's get these applications in, help others submit them, pass them on to those who are willing to work for a healthier city.  This seed capital can help those with tight budgets do something fun to help them feed themselves, support farm businesses that can hire people, and help existing organizations get into the "teach how to fish" side of feeding people. 
 Please forward this information to the gardeners, farmers, and community leaders you know.  I can provide technical assistance, group presentations, and free workshops to assist in getting the applications complete. 
Thanks,
Sasteh Mosley
