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.
