Roots Reading - Learning Your True Afrikan Identity Through the Afrikan Oracle of Ifa

One of the biggest questions as well as dilemmas, for New Afrikan people, is the issue of "Who am I really?" The big business of DNA testing has really been racking in riches based upon the hunger of New Afrikan people to reconnect with their Afrikan true heritage. Without going into many of the scientific inaccuracies of these tests, most of these Afrikans are left wanting and in need of much more information. Often times more questions are created than answers. Many are not aware that there is an Afrikan spiritual cultural way to find out exactly who you are.

In the Yoruba language, the word ipiile means "root, foundation". In the Fon language of Benin Republic, the word dodo means "origins". The reading often referred to as a Roots Reading is more properly called Ipiile Fa in Yoruba. It is roughly translated as "the root/foundation according to Fa/Ifa". This is the reading whereas New Afrikans gather the pertinent spiritual, social, and mundane information reconnecting them to their Afrikan ethnic root. It is one thing to know that you are Afrikan, but even more important to know exactly where you come from. Not only does the Ipile Fa tell you this, but it also tells you such things as if your people were captured, and if so, how your people got into captivity, what kind of family you come from (what they were doing in Mawufe- Aja/Fon word for Afrika-before being captured), what did they do, what side of the family your soul descends from (hence, "root"), family taboos, the deity or deities your family worshiped, the Odu or sacred spiritual sign that governs your family, if one descends from royalty, blacksmiths, merchants, kwk (etc etc), which tribal nation was responsible for them being captured, when they were captured, to which part of the itankale (Yoruba for "diaspora") they landed in, what happened with them when they got there, what other Afrikan ethnicities entered the family line, if there are any curses (spiritual illnesses) found within the lineage and how to rid the lineage of such ills, kwk (this is Ki Bantu or so-called "Ki Swahili" short for katha wa katha which means "etc., etc."). Though there are not many priests trained within this system, we encourage all New Afrikans, Afrikans torn away from their Afrikan motherland, to seek out priests that do this very important reading.
