I'm the Truth
On the temples of Luxor, Kemet (Ancient Egypt) reads the proverb: The best and shortest road towards knowledge of truth is Nature. If we are to obtain knowledge of truth we must begin with nature. With the increase of greedy, anti-environment businessmen it’s hard to rely on their wonderful yet indolent technology. After witnessing the failure by the U.S. government in the Gulf Coast region in America during hurricane Katrina it has become necessary for us to look for ways to reduce dependence. The Siafu Drum newspaper fills this void. The Siafu Drum will focus on practical, relevant information towards self-determination as well as African culture.
What is a Siafu's Drum? Siafus are ants from East Africa who epitomize teamwork. Individually they are strong but as a team they can strip a water buffalo down to the bone in under an hour. While traditionally the drum is used for ceremonies and as a call to action. Using these symbols we look to nature in the spirit of teamwork, self-determination, and action.
With nature as our philosophy our The Siafu Drum will be sectioned in the five elements of the Earth each element having its own concept:
Earth: organic, urban farming/growing, homesteading, etc
Fire: alternative energy, cooking, etc
Air: Environmental Racism, pollution or something like, Health, global warming, etc.
Water: irrigation, water collection, birth, washing, etc
Spirit: The spirit is what harnesses and energizes all elements. We look to our Ancestors to learn the ways of harnessing each element and how they applied it to their daily lives.
The Siafu Drum is looking for writers for its website, so if you can write or would like to help with the newspaper, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or PM me.
