    Greetings Phamily

    I hope all is well. I have just recently finished an article in which I have suggested a new name for Africa. Please review and give me your feedback. As many of you know I have made it my life's mission to restore and reconstruct something that has been taken away from us as a result of the colonial holocaust of Africa: our identity. Here is the link to the pdf:

    http://www.***************/documentdownloads/Renaming_Africa.pdf

    I look forward to your feedback.

    For those of you who know how to read Madu Ndele (Mdw Ntr) words "ideographically", here is how you would interpret the signs.

    TA (land sign): the place

    M (plow sign): where one can cultivate (through hard work, collective work and responsibility, through sharing and togetherness)... See More

    R(open mouth sign): and expand (mentally, financially)

    I or Y (reef sign): and grow (human and spiritual development)

    (reef on mouth sign): determinative for grow, time, season, harvest)

    (niwt sign of a city/country): in the context of community.

    So it reads, Dya Malela: A place where one can cultivate one's self, expand and grow within the context of a loving community.


    Ancestrally,

    Asar Imhotep

    i have no problem with naming africa

    i also suggest that the various borders in the continent be redrawn along lines that are reasonable to the people there.

    That is the contention of many who advocate a United States of Africa. In the article I provide three links for organizations advocating for just such a thing.

    I hope you dont mind my sharing what you wrote concerning this an another forum.

    "Instead of calling ancient Egypt Ta-Merry, call it by its Tshiluba [ciKam] name: "Land of Righteousness, Justice, Truth [Dya-Malelela; Cyamalela] or [Dya-Malela; Dya-Malanda] "Land of Love, Friendship and Fraternity". The TA is pronounced DYA and MRY is MaLeLA [r > l]."

    I have long emphasized the need to look further south from "Egypt" and your focus on the Luba is very enlightening.

    I am in agreement as its timely considering a point I made in another thread concerning RE-ORIENTATION.

    There is something else here. I remember that Dr. Ben used to write concerning "Al-Khebulan" but whenever I used to attend his lectures he always referred to the Motherland as Ta-Meri and from other studies I started referring to "America" as Ta-Merit-Ka.

    I think its one of those things that came to be going from my own studies progressing from K'mt to D'mt down south. Also, what territory is R'mt a reference to?

    How could I translate Ta-merit-ka into Ciluba? Is this possible? I also see a need to drop the "American" settler colonial identity.

    @Omowelijabali, RMT is the Egyptian name for "people" or "person" (human being). It is not a location. You say RMT M KMT (luntu mu buKame) to say, "The people of Km.t.". The word RMT is a dialectical variant of the word BANTU. Visit my website at this link for some good notes: http://www.***************/index.ph...-luntu-some-notes&catid=34:articles&Itemid=55

    In regards to Ta-Meri.t Ka, I would say, Dya Malela Ka (kala/kale). But you have to explain the KA. Dya Malela is Ta Mry, no need for the Ka.

    If you have my book, The Bakala of North America, you know I have suggested to rename African Americans the Bakala to drop the American colonial identity.

    Also, make sure you share the link in the first post as it has some additional information beyond what I put on the forum concerning the name as it relates to Itiopia and Ma'at.

    Thanks.

    I need to review your book.

    Given your explanation, this means I would just refer as Dya Malela in reference to both locations.

    The name Dya Malela is the name for Africa only. I leave it up to native Americans to name their own land, from their own languages.

    Greetings Phamily
    I have updated the article Renaming Africa. I have made some corrections to the data, corrected some grammar, and added other content. I have added why the ciLuba rendition was chosen, more data on the relationship of Rome in the creation of Africa, and a complete new section which reads the name Dya Malela, using the hieroglyphic script ideographically, to uncover some hidden truths in the name Dya Malela. I also refined the definition of Ethiopia (ciPya) to uncover how and why the Greek historians rendered the name Ethiopia to mean “burnt-face” but got the application wrong. There was also a link to Dr. Wade Noble’s lecture that did not work and that has been updated as well.
    I am pretty sure if you have read it once already, that you were going to read it again. Now if you do, you will have additional, more up-to-date data in which to critically engage the text. I appreciate all of you and your feedback and please share with others. The aim is to have a national/international dialogue on this subject. The link is still the same, so you can use the one above.

    Ancestrally,
    Mujilu Mukatapa
