A Proposal for an Indepennt Afrikan Global Archives
We are living in a period of 'globalisation' and people of Afrikan heritage and their loyal friends in Afrika and her Diaspora must also think globally, in order to construct collective development more fully. Modern technologies have afforded us this vast means of reaching people in a matter of seconds.
We are using it to our advantage. "Our Journey takes us to this point in the Twenty First Century. And, as people of Afrikan heritage, residing in Afrika and her Diaspora, our sacred and unfailing duties are to protect and promote the collective Afrikan Personality, in substance and for purpose, irrespective of our spiritual, metaphysical, philosophical, religious, scientific and political belief systems," said AaDI Co-Chairperson, Dr Vince Hines.

COMMUNAL SELF-HELP IS THE KEY TO AFRIKAN GLOBAL PROGRESSIONS, IN ALL FORMS. From a small seed comes a great sustaining Afrikan Baobab Tree, ["Tree of Life."] which is carbon dated to have lived for over six thousand years. We must learn from Nature. Afrikan history and achievements are often distorted because the Bowl from which we were forced to eat and drink for 500 years is poisoning our minds, as it had always done. Many of us have lost confidence in ourselves, self-esteem, and sense of purpose, vision and achievements. We must never forget, however, that we are the Prototype of Humanity and existed on this Planet far over 130,000 years, in our 'modern form', long before others who exist today. If we appear to be poor in substance, it is part of the illusion of control. Greater still, is when we believe and co-operate with that illusion, the Big Lie.

However, we must first learn to work collectively together on non-controversial projects, locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. We are currently divided by languages we speak; theologies and ideologies we embrace; and, nine times out of ten, these are borrowed from other nations, and not our own construct. Nevertheless, Afrika and Afrikans must now move collectively to a default position in communicating with each other globally, using whichever languages we can, as part of our 21st Century and beyond leadership direction. Our rightful place is at the Head of the Line. To maintain or retrieve that place, we must spring clean our minds and demonstrate greater awareness of artificial constructions going on around us. We must be allowed to learn from our mistakes and move on positively, as other nations do.

History is important as an evaluating tool - looking back to realise our achievements or lack of them; assess our present and plan our future. Another of our sacred duties, as people of Afrikan heritage, is to ensure that our history and achievements are properly and accurately recorded for all posterities. AaDI's Co-Chairperson, Dr Deng D. Akuany, said "We are now talking to a wide cross-section of Afrikans and our trusted friends at home and abroad, as we present this practical proposition, designed to be INCLUSIVE, TRANSPARENT, UPLIFTING AND UNIFYING. To participate in this global exercise, we are not asked to change our belief systems or way of life. We are presented with an opportunity for unprecedented co-operation. It is a building block, with obvious mutual benefits. We all can be 'stakeholders' of an IGAA Project."

We would appreciate your support in further circulating the document to relevant individuals and organisations/groups in your localities, who are likely to have an interest and want to participate in this consultative process. Ownership of such an Archives would be Afrikan's globally, as detailed in the consultative document. We therefore request your considerations and comments , within the stipulated period, ending on 27 January 2012. The organisers also want to establish practical working partnerships with individuals and organisations/groups globally, in their individual locations, in the interest of productive Afrikan community development.

The document is translated and available in several languages, including French - for French speaking Afrikans; Spanish - for Spanish speaking Afrikans, in Cuba, Venezuela, Columbia and Spain, for example; Portuguese for Afrikans in Brazil, Dutch, for Dutch speaking Afrikans in Surinam, South America and Arabic for Arabic speaking Afrikans in Afrika and Arabia. The document can be available in other languages, and should be translated and circulated into as many Afrikan languages as possible, where necessary. Maybe this type of creative global community leadership will infuse higher levels of pride in our children and young people, in order that they might discover their Higher Self and divert from potential destructive behaviours.
