Indigenous African Rite of Passage

Indigenous African Rite of Passage

From Cameron Allen

I am raising money to complete my calling of an Indigenous Rite of Passage journey. This fundraiser will help with the cost of travel, supplies, time I have to take off from work, guidance from elders, medicines, etc.

In many African traditions when a child is born, a ceremony takes place. The ceremony will become a deciding factor in what the child's name is, what their destiny is, and reveal what gifts their child may have. This is the first of many rites of passage that take place in many African countries and cultures. Since I am a part of the diaspora, these rites of passage have not taken place. For many, this does not change much for them, but for someone like myself, it tends to manifest as injuries, ailments, difficulties, and troubles in life if the calling is not heeded if one was destined to become a healer. The rites of passage that I will be going through now at age 33 was essentially meant for me to begin the process of around age 12. Because I have had to go through innumerable challenges on this winding path to get here it would be of great appreciation to receive support in this process. I spent over 8 years now off of the beaten path becoming an astrologer and herbalist. I served communities with little to no resources to the point I often before being 30 years old would have less than one hundred dollars to my name. All because I was trying to catch up to my destiny in a society that not only left me fragmented from my roots, but also did not support what I inherently am to be in this lifetime. Because I can see all of this with much more clarity, things have swiftly changed and I am inviting everyone into being a part of this change with me.Thokoza
