Afraka in the tamazight language means sunny place. In the Medu Neter means the birthplace,Africa is derived from the Egyptian af-rui-ka, “to turn toward the opening of the Ka.” The Ka is the energetic double of every person and “opening of the Ka” refers to a womb or birthplace. Africa would be, for the Egyptians, “the birthplace.”
When someone says that they are Afrakan it means we are people that come from a sunny place that is the birthplace of humans and culture
