The Revolution which created the Nation of Haiti was inspired by the divine decree of the warrior love goddes known as Ezili Danto, who danced in the head of the great Haitian priestess, Cecile Fatiman, on that famous night in 1791, on a red hilltop, in a forest thicket in Haiti called Bwa Kayiman.

Let by the powerful warrior spirit Ezili Danto, Cecile Fatiman crowned the African warrior Boukman with her royal red Petwo scepter, ushering in the Haitian war which forever slashed the chains of European slavery in Haiti to create Africa's sacred trust, Manman Ayiti, the first independent Black republic in the world. Ezili Danto is the symbol of the irreducible essence of that ancient Black mother, mother of all the races, who holds Haiti's umbilical chord back to Africa, back to Anba Dlo. Calling on her essence, breath, vision and cosmic power brought forth Haiti's release from 300 years of brutal enslavement.

Ezili Danto is the spirituall mother of Haiti and the preeminent cosmic symbol of Black independence, unity, self-determination, justice, equality and freedom.

The Goddess remembered at Bwa Kayiman

There was a time when women were the primary religious figures on this planet. A pre-historical time, long ago. Haiti is the pioneer in ushering back the reign of the goddess and of women as religious figures equal with men in performing ceremonies.

On Aug. 14, 1791, Haitians remembered their dark African mothers and honored their culture. On Aug. 14, 1791, Boukman remembered Mother Africa. Cecile Fatiman remembered Mother Africa. All the feys (leaves) at Bwa Kayiman remembered Mother Africa.

Then the amalgamated African tribes, in Haiti, found and took hold of Ezili Danto, who said, "kange Mundele," "Kill the stranger among us," meaning both the brutal enslavers as well as mental colonization. Over 200 delegations of Blacks from various plantations throughout the North of Haiti were present.

The Haitians had stretched their heart, nerve and sinew way back to call on this Authentic spirit of ancient and pre-colonial Africa-they called on Ezili Danto, along with Danbala, Atibon Legba, Ogou Feray, Manman Lasirene and more. But Ezili Danto appeared first at that Petwo ceremony on Aug. 14, 1791, day on that red clay hilltop in Haiti.

All the Africans at Bwa Kayiman, all, be they Muslim or christian converts, went home that day, back to Vodun, and that has been the road less traveled by by any African nation today. (with the exception of Benin). That movement has made all the difference to Africans in the New World and around the world, globally, for it initiated and propelled forward universal human rights as well as initiating the first sparks of Pan-Americanism and Pan-Africanism in modern world history.

For the Haitian people were the first black and enslaved workers taken in shackles out of Africa to the "New World," the first treated as savages and as sub-humans and the first to respond to this treatment definitively and forever, by validating themselves as human beings entitled to equality, self-defense and their own African religious beliefs. For those days, as well as for today, that was Revolutionary.

But a black nation inspired by an African Goddess liberator was a bad omen for the white European settlers who claimed themselves superior to Blacks and certainly to free Black women. Yet the Haitian people, without arms, allies, or financial resources, were so inspired by their Vodun gods and goddessess and the powers of their ancestors that, led by the warrior goddess Ezili Danto and after 300 years of slavery, they decided to "live free or die" - liberte ou lamo! - and set themselves free in Haiti, defeating all the mighty European powers at that time, the French, Spanish and British in combat.

Today, Haitian women and men follow the long legacy of the warriors of Haitian independence. They are tireless fighters, beholden to no one, heroic leaders on the cutting edge of the human rights struggle.

Anba Dlo, literally means "beneath the ocean, ther waters". Is it that primordial, cosmic space where all potentiality lives. It is the mythological "Haitian Heaven" where all who ever lived will live and the living wild end up. It is, to the African warriors who founded Haiti, the road back to Manman "Africa" - Nan Guinen, that comsmic space where the world began with "Le Marasa, Le More E le Miste."

Anba Dlo to the Haitian is where the great African ancestors, our sacred energies, our strengths and force - the "Lwas," those sacred irreducible essences of teh Haitian-African-Black sould reside

Anbal Dlo is the sacred stillness, the cosmic place, where life sources issue from and return to

Black and Latino custodial workers @ the Capitol Bldg said it was degrading to clean up the debris left by white supremacist who violently stormed the Capitol Bldg. They even had to clean up smeared feces. One staffer said they were used to cleaning up after white supremacist (referring to racist Congressional members). Those who were there that day feared for their life b/c they weren't given any protection.
Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
Twitter is now locking accounts for unusual activity when there is no unusual activity. Apparently if you post to much to soon, it triggers their spider hairs. Never mind that it's (or was) a platform to post information and opinions, now it's just a flat bed from the ghost-of-trump-past. Jack Dorsey/Twitter should be charged with giving trump the media to incite a resurrection against the United States government.
