The Longest Journey

Mami Wata


The road back to our ancestral culture is long, and the road itself is longer. I started out reading everything I could find on African history, knowledges, “spirituality” thinking that what I read was the knowledge. Then I realized what I was reading was not the knowledge, but merely some information about the knowledge. I now know I have to seek the knowledge as experience, seek the knowledge as if I’m on a pilgrimage, which I am.
