amor4ce: According to creation mythology, Nana Buluku created the universe and gave birth to twins. This contradicts the account in Ifa of creation and may be borne out of the migration from Old Oyo of Dahomey leading to the evolution/distortion of the true story. According to Ifa, the first human being to be created was a woman named ENI BI ENI (this one in our likeness). This name was commonly known as Nini Binini. She was given as wife to Oduduwa, one of the Irunmole and gave birth to 16 children, that is, 8 sets of twins. Nini Binini is the same person as Nana Buluku: Nini > Nana; and Bi- > Bu-, -ni- > -lu-, -ni > -ku. Tis is another example of the interchange of the -l- and -n- consonants.

Nini Binini
Nana Buluku

Our brethren spread across west africa need to be in constant touch with the source (Ife)

Have you ever read about the foremost Sumerian/Akkadian goddess called Inanna? It's sounding similar to the name you wrote above. It might be coincident though...

Probably the same but could also be a corrupted version.

'' EWE KAN KI JABO LEHIN OLODUMARE ''

Which means: 'No leaf can fall from the tree without the authority, power and knowledge of God'

We can not speak about the Yoruba belief, about God and the spiritual phenomena of our faith without tracing its origin. The whole composite of Yoruba culture, its language, the nations' identity, moral systems and beliefs came from the present middle-east. Our ancestors settled in the western part of Africa in areas that today are defined as Nigeria, Togo, Benin as well as parts of Ghana and Sierra Leone. From here the Yoruba spread to all of the Americas, the Caribbean and Europe.

One account of origin tells us that the Yoruba people were a part of a pre-Jewish tradition in the middle-east. Through communal effort and cooperation the tradition dispersed all over the world. We can find great similarities in the tradition of circumcision, tribal markings and the whole body of knowledge concerning sacrifice, rituals, prayer, fasting, as well as its mysticism and traditional philosophy - all elements that form the foundation of classical Judaism can be found in the practice of Yoruba religiosity. All these components can in turn be traced back to the time of Adam and later Abraham. As we see, the Yoruba, with its culture, religion and language predated Christianity and Islam, as recorded in the research by Hamilton Bailey concerning the practice of circumcision amongst the Jews and Yoruba.

We can also gain a deeper understanding of the meaning of the term Yoruba by translating this into Hebrew. The word Yoruba is formed by yud, resh, vau, beth and aleph

Yud - YO- referring to a divine order and being the spark of divinity

Resh - R- referring to psychic union ns also being related to the Sun, the lifegiving male principle

Heh - U- The gateway for the divine powers and its source

Beth - B - The active motion of the divine spark within man as referring to the construction of man as a house for God.

Aleph - A - The collective stabilizing power of the human being.

Hence the word Yoruba then refers to a divine order born by the psychic union of life that resulted into the source of the everlasting providence as well as an active movement of divine power within man that are utilized to ensure the collective stability of humanity. This results in equilibrium and stability, the needed foundation for accomplishing effective communication between the physical and spiritual realm. We need Ifá as a tool for accomplishing this mediation between the physical and invisible world. Ifá as a tool for divination is a problem solving tool, with the aim of finding solutions to all of man's problems with the aid of the immortal beings and the ancestors.

Having said this, it is important to stress that Olodumare is a God who embraces all people, we might say that the global spread of the Yoruba people indicates the universality of Olodumare. The Yoruba is convinced that Olodumare is the king of kings and the mysterious ruler that knows everything, it be in the light or in the darkness. A Yoruba proverb says:

agbokunkun, tafa si imole , boba aye kori o, orun wo ooo,

this means; 'those who is in darkness and does evil to the children of light , if the earthly king does not see you, the heavenly ruler is watching you".

lol at this topic.



Now this is insane, and makes you all look bad. How can you be related to Jews, or ethiopians.


If your related to ethiopians, then that means your related to Somalis. And as Somali, i can tell you that we are not related. Sorry to burst your bubble.


Why would anyone want to say they are related to Jews? Their are Ethiopian jews living right next to Somalis in the Somali region of Ethiopia, and never will i hear a Somali claiming his a Jew. This is an insult.


Let me leave you with a word of advice.


Those who are content keep what they have, while those are discontent look insearch of what they never will have. Make other people claim you and dont claim jews and ethiopians. Besides ethiopians have been forced to eat raw meat for hundreds of years because Somalis would butcher them when they ethiopians started a camp fire. And as for the jews, they have been kicked out of more countries throughout history than a nigerian 419 scammer has targeted. cheesy


ps. I heard Australian aboriginals are taking applications to see who wants to claim them.

when pedigree Africans, children of dark and glowing complexion, speak.....quarter bred and half bred somalians with blood trace all over the globe ought to cover face in shame.

silky hair donated from arab slave marauders, straight nose donated from anglo slave r aypists, thin lips donated by italian child molester..... we cant find where to place this child in the context of an african culture we were hoping to get a throughbred, instead a mule is what we got. what use is a mule in a field of wild strong broncos?

What a slowpoke. When you speak all people with high school education must shake in shame.

Somalis had those features way before arabs, italians came to somalia. Matter of fact somalis have never been enslaved. Also Italians came to SOMALIA during world war 2. LMAO

Arabs never came to somalia in droves. Even now they are less than 30,000 thousand arabs. So you shouldnt be abel to speak about anything that deals with facts. Cause by you analsis Somalis only came to existance after world war 2 when europeans came to Somalia. What a mooron.



But the facts still stand. Somalis have looked the way they do more than 3,000 years now. We Speak our own language which is Somali. We are the only people in Africa that have a nation named after our ethnic group, We are the only people to have an indigineous non european language as the national language. And we dont claim jews or ethiopians.



But every thread by blacks i see is whether they are from jews or ethiopians. Lmao
Every time i see a black woman with fake weave, i feel like laughing, who are you kidding, obviously someone aspires to look more like their masters who enslaved them.

horses are the best example i can find to showcae your history for you. when you want a prized race horse valued for its pedigree and blood line you go for the throughbred.. this has never been mixed with any impure blood. it is the best.

when you want a gem stone of pure worth you go for a diamond that has not been mixed or set or alloyed with any impuritiea.

when arabs, english, italian and yemeni got into africa the eastern african men were poussies, foreigner walked over them to take their women as spoils of war. arab blood and english blood and italian blood and yemeni blood all mixed together with the african blood to produce impure children with low immune system.....ever susceptible to all kind of diseases and foreign genetic disorders that are prevalent in arab blood and european blood. children of misuri sana flaunting the light skin donated to their blood stream by european gene or the curls of their hair, courtesy of an arab rape, or their straight nose donated by gay italians.

You are really retaarded. When did somalia have a war with any arab country? Somalis looked the way they did for 3,000 years. We traded with arabs they never came to Somalia to marry our women. You need help man. What you are saying doesnt even make sense. Somalis, Ethiopians, Eritreans have looked like that for thousands of years. No arabs went to ethiopia. Ethiopia was never colonized, yet they look like us somalis.



You need to stop smoking what ever your are smoking. And worry about your slave decendants in america who are using drugs and killing each other over shoes.

Dear friend. What your talking about makes no sense. Ethiopians, and Somalis do have some arab ancestry and that makes sense since all of humanity is related to one another.

No arab army ever came to somalia. The only army ever that came to somalia, was a 400 turkish soldiers sent by the ottoman emprie to fight against ethiopia. Kindly go F off.

did you say some arab ancestry? oh, i thought you said none to begin with.

Have you read william lynch and his narration on how to breed a mule? only a white cracker would write shyyt like that, afterall he perfected the idea in somaliland.

stoopid refugee like you poking your nose in what you have no business looking at, much more talk about. let me catch your arab mulatto as*s peep into a Yoruba discussion again. i will offer you in worship to Ogun.

Man honestly you need to visit my ' ask a somali/muslim' thread. You make no sense.


1. Arabs never envaded somalia/ethiopia.

2. Kenyans dont have nice hair...you must be thinking of the ethnic somalis in northern kenya...which has been traditionally somali territory but the UK game it to kenya.

3. Somali is an ancient language, it had many writing systems.

4. Arabs couldnt have created 100million plus horners in a few generations

5. No one forced Somalis to beocome muslim

6. Somalis had slaves, they are still in somalia, we call them bantu. they were originally from uganda, kenya, tanazania

7. Somalis can trace their ancestory back thousands of years. We have a clan system. We are the only people in africa who know their roots better than anyone else

Honestly you are very stupppid.

1. several hundred arabs came to somalia to trade, some went to interior of somalia and then tanzania to get slaves. Those slaves were sold to somalis, and then the rest were exported to the middle east.
Somalis were muslim and could not be enslaved. Also somalis helped arabs when they ran from persecution when islam was under attack. the prophets companions came to present day zeila in northern somalia.

2. I speak english cause i live in the USA.

3. My hair has always been soft, too soft if you ask me. The turban is to get the sand from getting in your eyes. lmao
Re: You Might Want To Know That We Yorubas Are Part Of The Lost Tribe Of Israel by somalia9: 12:21pm On Dec 16, 2012
Slavery in Somalia existed as a part of the Arab slave trade. To meet the demand for menial labor, Bantus from southeastern Africa captured by Arab slave traders were sold in cumulatively large numbers over the centuries to customers in Somalia and other areas in Northeast Africa and Asia.[1][2] Peoples captured locally during wars and raids were also sometimes enslaved by Somalis.[3] However, the perception, capture, treatment and duties of both groups of slaves differed markedly.[4]

The Indian Ocean slave trade was multi-directional and changed over time. To meet the demand for menial labor, black slaves captured by Arab slave traders from southeastern Africa were sold in cumulatively large numbers over the centuries to customers in Egypt, Arabia, the Persian Gulf, India, the Far East, the Indian Ocean islands, Ethiopia and Somalia.[1][2]
From 1800 to 1890, between 25,000–50,000 black African slaves are thought to have been sold from the slave market of Zanzibar to the Somali coast.[11] Most of the slaves were from the Majindo, Makua, Nyasa, Yao, Zalama, Zaramo and Zigua ethnic groups of Tanzania, Mozambique and Malawi. Collectively, these Bantu groups are known as Mushunguli, which is a term taken from Mzigula, the Zigua tribe's word for "people" (the word holds multiple implied meanings including "worker", "foreigner", and "slave"wink.[1]

Bantu adult and children slaves (referred to collectively as jareer by their Somali masters[12]) were purchased in the slave market exclusively to do undesirable work on plantation grounds.[12] They were made to work in plantations owned by Somalis along the southern Shebelle and Jubba rivers, harvesting lucrative cash crops such as grain and cotton.[13] Bantu slaves toiled under the control of and separately from their Somali patrons.[12]
In terms of legal considerations, Bantu slaves were devalued. Somali social mores also strongly discouraged, censured and looked down upon any kind of sexual contact with Bantu slaves. Freedom for these plantation slaves was also often acquired through escape.[12]
In the 1840s, the first fugitive slaves from the Shebelle valley began to settle in the Jubba valley. By the early 1900s, an estimated 35,000 former Bantu slaves settled there.
T

he Italian colonial administration abolished slavery in Somalia at the turn of the 20th century. Some Bantu groups, however, remained enslaved well until the 1930s, and continued to be despised and discriminated against by large parts of Somali society.[14]
The Bantus were also conscripted to forced labor on Italian-owned plantations since the Somalis themselves were averse to what they deemed menial labor,[15] and because the Italians viewed the Somalis as racially superior to the Bantu.[12]

In the late 19th century, Somalis also captured other jareer peoples from the coastal regions of Kenya to work for them as slaves and clients. Referred to as the Kore, these Nilo-Saharan Maa-speaking Nilotes were later emancipated by British colonial troops. They subsequently resettled on the Lamu seaboard as fishermen and cultivators. Like many Bantus, the Kore reportedly now speak the Afro-Asiatic Somali language on account of their time in servitude.[16]

Re: You Might Want To Know That We Yorubas Are Part Of The Lost Tribe Of Israel by somalia9: 12:22pm On Dec 16, 2012
In addition to Bantu plantation slaves, [b]Somalis sometimes enslaved peoples of Oromo pastoral background [/b]that were captured during wars and raids on Oromo settlements.[4][3] However, there were marked differences in terms of the perception, capture, treatment and duties of the Oromo pastoral slaves versus the Bantu plantation slaves.[4]


On an individual basis, [b]Oromo subjects were not viewed as racially jareer [/b]by their Somali captors.[4] The Oromo captives also mostly consisted of young children and women, both of whom were taken into the families of their abductors; men were usually killed during the raids. Oromo boys and girls were adopted by their Somali patrons as their own children. Prized for their beauty and viewed as legitimate sexual partners, many Oromo women became either wives or concubines of their Somali captors, while others became domestic servants.[3][17] In some cases, entire Oromo clans were assimilated on a client basis into the Somali clan system.[3]
Neither captured Oromo children nor women were ever required to do plantation work, and they typically worked side-by-side with the Somali pastoralists. After an Oromo concubine gave birth to her Somali patron's child, she and the child were emancipated and the Oromo concubine acquired equal status to her abductor's other Somali wives. According to the Somali Studies pioneer Enrico Cerulli, in terms of diya (blood money) payments in the Somali customary law (Xeer), the life of an Oromo slave was also equal in value to that of an ordinary ethnic Somali.[17]


Freedom for Oromo slaves was obtained through manumission and was typically accompanied by presents such as a spouse and livestock.[12] During abolition, former Oromo slaves, who generally maintained intimate relations with the Somali pastoralists, were also spared the harsh treatment reserved for the Bantu and Nilotic plantation slaves.[12][17]

Somalis were never slaves, but allowed arabs to come to somali territory to get slaves for exporting. They paid taxes to somali authority at the time.

somali themselves had slaves. Ethiopians had black slaves. arabs had black slaves.


relax your negroid people were slaves for everyone on this planet including the white man.
