Celebrating Kwanzaa---Day 1, Umoja Means Unity!

About Kwanzaa...

Kwanzaa is an unique celebration founded in 1966 that takes place December 26th through January1st every year.  It encourages people around the World of African descent to restore a Universal Family Tradition and to strengthen bonds within the family and community.

Dr. Maulana Karenga is the founder of Kwanzaa. 

Through seven principles represented by the candles lit on the Kinara each day  during the celebration of Kwanzaa, we honor Our heritage as people of African descent who lost a great deal of our heritage through enslavement.

Becoming Good Stewards...


Please Offer a Prayer of Hope for your children's children, and the seven generations of children who will come after them.
Breathe and Exhale Deeply Seven Times as you open your tender hearts in prayer.

For the Children---May we honor Our Earth/Heart and forego our violent thoughts or selfish actions as we work together in every community to build new bridges of compassion and joy.

May  Honor Our Ancestors, Our Elders, Our Families who have served and tried to live with compassion, integrity, hope and Love.

May we use our gifts and  dedicate our lives to the many generations of children that come to Earth/Heart to be nurtured; and able to live in a prosperous world where Love and Respect bring total Harmony to Earth.

UBUNTU! I Am Because You Are!  Umoja Means Unity!
