ZAMBA BOUKMAN is a powerful Lwa (Loa) or Guardian Being within the Sacred High Beings of Vodoun. He was given this sacred title after His contribution to the early resistance to colonial enslavement and kidnapping of Indigenous People.
He was initially from the island of Xaymaka (Jamaica) and then was transported over to the island of Ayiti (Hispaniola). His last name is an indicator that He was a man of learning and wisdom since those around Him called Him Boukman, which derives from the English phrase book man or man of books.
Not only a powerful and fierce warrior, but a priest, He led a sacred prayer to the High Being Ogun (who I call the Highest Principle of War). He invoked Ogun to separate the oppressed from the god of the enemy and give those same people victory over them.
This wonderful Indigenous person had unwavering courage in the face of insurmountable odds, and gave His life in the struggle to overcome the adversaries. DEOZI now invokes Ogun and His Avatar Zamba, to help us to continue the fight for freedom, and keep our enemies from harming our babies. So be it.

NANA ESI KETEWAA is an Abosom, a High Being of veneration and respect in the Ancestors of the Akan Peoples. She is a Fertility Being and protector of women during their pregnancy cycle and giving birth. Her roots are originally from the Akapuem region of modern day Ghana.
Yemoja of the Orisha (Yoruba People), and Mut of the Neteru (Ancient Egypt/KMT), are seen to have heavily commonality with Her since they are also High Beings of Motherhood. This shows that the principle of Motherhood is a very important element throughout the Throne of All Continents: Africa.
When we think of birth, we should always think of powerful principles that represent the protection and caring of our young as they exit their Indigenous mother, to join the rest of us on top of Our Most Ancient Mother, the Living Planet. It is definitely a good affirmation practice to invoke our past mothers, in essence and knowledge, to guide us in our procreation practices today, and for the future!
