    An ongoing debate in Kemetic archaeology has been where exactly is the location for the land of Punt. The significance for this is that the people of Kemet stated clearly that these were their ancestors, and the land where their neterw came from. Upon translation of these words, the racist Egyptologists then tried to prove that Punt was in the "Middle East", Somalia, or some other nonsensical place. The following is my case as for why I think Punt was in southern Africa, and not in the locality of the "Middle East", Nubia/Kush, Ethiopia, Somalia, or any surrounding vicinity. In the Kemetic tale of "The Shipwrecked Sailor" (ca 2200 BCE), we find a sailor who returns from Punt stating the following words (first paragraph):

    "...Moreover, we have come back in good health, and not a man is lacking; although we have been to the ends of Wawat [Nubia], and gone through the land of Senmut [Kush]..."
    Full translation: http://www.touregypt.net/shipwreckedsailor.htm

    This means that in his return Punt must have been completely south of both Nubia and Kush...but exactly how far south?

    I think the evidence points to about present-day Zimbabwe, Mozambique or even more southern Africa because Queen Hatshepsut (15th century BCE) of the 18th Egyptian Dynasty sailed to Punt by way of boat southwards on the Red Sea (called the Black Sea in Kemetic texts because this body of water was within the Kemetic empire). Some people assume that Somalia or present-day Ethiopia is where they landed to find Punt, but why couldn't they have sailed even further down and around the east coast of Africa to south Africa? If we look at a map of Africa this is totally feasible; where they could have easily sailed pass Ethiopia and Somalia and further south down the east coast of Africa...stay with me now...

    In a relief at the Dayr Al Bahri temple in Egypt it shows Queen Hatshepsut being welcomed by the Queen Eti and King Perehu of Punt. Just as archaeologists have analyzed this relief, it shows that the Queen of Punt exhibits extremely steatopygic traits (large derriere) that is classic to south African women, who were termed Bushmen and Hottentots by malignant latter-day Europeans.

    What has been further noted by archaeologists is that although south Africans were very well known in the Nile Valley thoughout Ethiopia, Nubia, and Egypt, it is more likely that for the Queen to have these characteristics, it would be indicative of the people she governed, which was not indigenous to the Ethiopic, Sudanic, or Nubian body types. Therefore, this points to a southern-most location for the land of Punt, or namely South Africa.

    Here is a picture of the south African women form from the British Library...

    Racist White and Arab archaeologists know this fact all too well about Punt, but avoid it like the plague because their ego (which they have been stroking for the last few hundred years) would be severely bruised. The main reason White Egyptologists avoid it is due to shame because they kidnapped a south African girl and put her on display in Europe during the European enslavement/colonization of Africa. Until 1997, a "Bushman" literally stuffed with cotton was on display in a museum just outside Barcelona...

    Some of this information may seem a bit superfluous, but I just want to make it clear that we already know who the people of Punt are. To pick up from before, if Punt was merely south of Nubia/Kush, then it would not have been necessary to travel by way of the sea/ocean. The Egyptians made trade shipments and expeditions all the time up and down the Nile with Kush and Ethiopia, so why take the Red Sea when going to Punt if in the same locality? The reason in my opinion is simple, because it was much further to the south and the terrain of the Nile gets much more difficult to navigate than the wide ocean when travelling into the heart of Africa. More importantly, simply travelling the Nile probably would not have got them far enough south.

    In conclusion, Punt means "Land of the Neterw (God)" in the ancient Kemetic/Egyptian language. The queen of the "Land of the God" (as shown above) was a Black woman with the African characteristic prominent derriere. This should give us some indication that we need to cherish and worship our beautiful Black woman...in all her prominence...because God is a woman, and she is BLACK!!!

    The "land of Zanj".

    It's entire extent along the coast, from modern Somalia, to what my brothers in "South Africa" refer to as AZANIA.

    This is a link which gives some detail into the political movement.

    It's roots go back to the Pan-Africanist Congress of AZANIA.

    AZANIA is definitely the name they refer by instead of "South Africa" from a Black Consciousness perspective.

    This goes back to the information shared by brother I-khan several months ago on the Zulu cosmology. The roots of this "civilization" is quite old as it extended along the entire coastal region of East Africa, and the people are part of the earliest migration out of Africa who settled in the southern "europe" area of France, and are the root of the so-called GRIMALDI, and this is the source of the so-called "Venus of Wallendorf", who was basically a "Hottentot" Goddess.

    PUNT - people and land of
    It is not known exactly where the land of Punt was actually located, but it was somewhere to the southeast of Egypt - probably on the east coast of Africa near the south end of the Red Sea. The Egyptians make references as early as the 5th Dynasty and expeditions were first made there in the Old Kingdom.
    Punt was the supply for tree-gum (myrrh or frankincense) which were used in Egyptian temple rituals. The Egyptians obviously regarded the land of Punt as somewhere exotic and mysterious. The reliefs from the temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el-Bahri have many reliefs showing an expedition sent to Punt

    Put -

    ...2. Son of Ham:

    In the “Table of Nations” Put is the third son of Ham (Genesis 10:6), the first and second being Cush and Misraim, and the fourth Canaan. Put is the only one of the sons of Ham who is not credited with descendants.

    3. As Nationality:

    In the Prophets, warriors from Put are referred to, principally in connection with the forces of Egypt. They appear as shield-bearers (Jeremiah 46:9 : “Cush and Put, that handle the shield; and the Ludim, that handle and bend the bow”). See also Ezekiel 30:5, where the order in the Hebrew is Cush, Put and Lud. In Nahum 3:9 Put is the helper of No-amon (Thebes in Egypt), and in Ezekiel 27:10 Put appears with Persia and Lydia (Lud) as being in the army of Tyre.

    4. Identified with Punt:

    The common identification of Put is the Egyptian Punt (or Pwent) proposed by Ebers. The assimilation of n to a following consonant is common in the Semitic languages, and would occasion no difficulty if the vocalization be found to agree. The final t of Punt, however, seems to be the Egyptian feminine ending, whereas the ṭ of Put is radical....
