A call to the ancestors:

The above clip from the movie Amistad is a demonstration of the power of the human spirit. Sengbe Pieh was born to Mende parents in the country now known as Sierra Leone sometime around 1814.

Pieh became known as Joseph Cinque, during the events which unfolded in August 1839 surrounding the schooner ‘Amistad.’

Description of Cingue or Cinque born Singbe Pieh in the country now known as Sierra Leone from the book A history of the Amistad captives (1840.)

SING-GBE, [Cin-gue,] (generally spelt Cinquez) was born in Ma-ni in Dzho-poa, i.e. in the open land in the Men-di country. The distance from Mani to Lomboko, he says, is ten suns or days. His mother is dead and he lived with his father. He has a wife and three children, one son and two daughters. His son’s name is Ge-waw (God.) His king, Ka-lum-bo lived at Kaw-men-di, a large town in the Mendi country. He is a planter of rice, and never owned or sold slaves. He was seized by four men, when traveling in the road, and his right hand tied to his neck. Ma-ya-gi-la-lo sold him to Ba-ma-dzha son of Shaka, king of Gen-du-ma, in the Vai country. Bamadzha carried him to Lomboko and sold him to a Spaniard. He was with Mayagilalo three nights; with Bamadzha one month, and at Lomboko two months. He had heard of Pedro Blanco, who lived at Te-i-lu near Lomboko.

Ishakamusa Barashango’s Oath to the Ancestors expresses a similar feeling. It can be viewed here.

The Mhotep Corporation uses its Keyamsha The Awakening brand to heighten perceptions and expand awareness. By producing content that engages, entertains and educates we create value for value relationships with our audience for mutual benefit. Mhotep is derived from the name of the architect and builder of the first pyramid in Kemet, so-called ancient Egypt. I formed the Mhotep Corporation in 2003 to produce and distribute 3D animation videos based on traditional African stories. Since then it has evolved to being a media production company including books. In a previous life I worked as a systems analyst developing solutions for government and multinational organizations. Born and educated in Washington, D.C. I have traveled to several places including Haiti, the Bahamas, Mexico, Canada, Nigeria (several times), Ethiopia (several times), Benin, Togo, and South Africa. I am married with three children.
