Mama Marimba Ani expresses it perfectly here…Our focus must be on Our young Afrikan children primarily, not on the adults of our race. she explains in depth here, how it is evident that we as Afrikan people in adulthood are mentally destroyed & psychologically traumatized because we have fully digested the yurugu worldview. we have functioned using this yurugu worldview as our compass to the world and as our method of relating among ourselves, and now we do not know of any other way to Be.
She says during this video that “she focuses on the younger people that are still more in touch with what is natural to Afrikan people”. this is why Katiopa Watoto Shule Childcare Services exists because i also understand that Our children are MUCH more in touch with our ancestral spirits, are much more in tune with what it means to BE Afrikan than we are.
