  • This presentation explores the dynamics of md.w-km.t (medu-kemet: the language of ancient Kemet/Egypt) and its associated writing script sS-mdw-nTr (sesh-medu-netcher: Ku.Swika Madu-a-Ndele in ciLuba-Bantu) within the greater context of the Negro-Egyptian language family (as proposed by Diop, Obenga, and Mboli). We further examine how modern African languages (and cultures) provide us keys for unlocking and interpreting obscure phenomena in ancient nj-km.t (Kemetic) texts. We will also look at the evolution of Negro-Egyptian: from its classical stage among hunter-gathers near the Great Lakes regionĀ in Central East-Africa, from its primordial semantaxes (world-views) as encapsulated within its primitive lexemes, to how these early ideas evolved into the African philosophy and motifs we observe today. Going directly to the source (i.e., African languages and cultures) provides us the necessary toolkit to construct a more robust and dynamic living system that will allow for us to successfully tower over the challenges of today and beyond while maintaining African agency.
