In 1090 BC, the White invaders, captured and enslaved in the temples, got free. They sacked the autochthon Black authorities in the north of Egypt and the legitimate guardians of the institutions withdrawn to the south. For 300 years, Ta Mery (Egypt) remained in the hands of kinglets from the north. Ta Mery therefore called out for help the king of the country of their ancestors, the Sudanese king Pianky who, along with his successors Shabaka, Shabataka and Taharqa started and strengthened the conquest of Egypt through the African legitimate power.

After the Sudanese emperors freed and controlled Ta Mery, the country had to face the Assyrian powerful neighbor that was trying dispute its hegemony in West Asia. The Nubians (Sudanese) who control then the entire Northeast part of Africa – it is to say almost a quarter part of the continent – brought to light the magnificent Egyptian civilization, which they gave birth to. A cold war broke up between Kama (Africa) and Assyria. The Red sea routes closed and Africa needed metals in order to complete its weapons. Africans then decided to get it wherever it was located; not only in Great Britain as usual but also in very far lands that nobody remember today. The sea route to America, where at the time Ramesu Maryimana used to get his tobacco from, around -1300, participated in the war effort.

Nubian warriors took on board, crossed the Mediterranean, took the ocean currents on the Atlantic and reached Mexico. There they met the Amerindians later called the Olmecs. The time was -700BC. It is then about these men, or rather about their impact that we are going to speak. The Native American civilization would then start to shine brilliantly after they met the Sudanese who brought their own civilization.

Eleven colossal heads extraordinarily Negro looking! It was in the beginning of the 20th century that American searchers discovered stone-sculpted heads in Mexico, some of which were 2.8 meters high. All these heads look towards the Atlantic. Their expression is rough. They bear Sudanese braids that wrap up a military Egyptian helmet. The carbon – 14 dating relative to these stone colossi is straight. They correspond to the 25th Egyptian dynasty of the Sudanese pharaohs.

Westerners chose not to give credit to these discovering, as they do not want to get rid of the myth of the slave African; they invent all sorts of absurdity to explain or to refute the evident Negro aspect of these sculptures.


  • “These are baby faces”
  • “The sculptors tried in fact to represent the features of the jaguar”
  • “The tools used were not sharp enough to allow them to represent Mongoloid (Native Americans) or White features.”
  • In addition, the best one: “The sculpted faces were fine. They flattened themselves when they fell from the mountain”.

The pictures displayed below are mostly the ones published by the African-American historian Runoko Rashidi.

Ivan Van Sertima (1935-2009)

The African-Guyanese savant Ivan Van Sertima had to publish his book “They Came Before Columbus-the African presence in ancient America” in order to stop all these absurdities and for the Western world to recognize the part of Africa in the starting of the pre-Colombian civilizations. Besides the several Negroid sculptures found all over South America, the most astonishing was Ivan Van Sertima’s demonstration about the links between the Egyptian-Nubian civilization and the Native American civilizations before Columbus’ arrival in America.

The Egyptian-Nubian presence in pre-Colombian America

The Amerindians suddenly started to build, 2700 years ago, pyramids, amongst which the biggest one – located in Tehutihuacan – has the same basis as the great pyramid of Giza. They built degree-pyramids that one would only find in Nubia at that time. The Native Americans suddenly managed to erect those extremely complex religious buildings that Westerners do not manage to reproduce today in spite of their technology. The ancient Egyptians who used to carve stones from completely different shapes and sizes to build walls and that matched according to a very accurate order, transmitted that rarely complex technology to the Amerindians by the Nubians.

The Amerindians afterwards obviously spread that technology on the Easter Island. The Amerindian calendar is composed of 12 months of 30 days on which are added 5 epagomenal days, which are public holiday like in ancient Egypt. All of a sudden, the Native Americans would promote incest between brothers and sisters of the royal families in order to preserve the purity of blood in virtue of the African matriarchal tradition also effective in Amerindian tradition.

One only finds the royal incest between brothers and sisters in the ancient Egyptian and Nubian world; and more recently, one could find the same practice in the African empires of Mwene Motapa (Monomotapa) and Kongo; as well as in Hawaii by a probable diffusion from America. Mummification spread to the South side from Mexico to Peru and to the north to the USA. The Amerindians even mummified dogs like in ancient Egypt. They mummified their dead the same way it was done in ancient Egypt: the fact to withdraw the inner organs through the anus and placement of those organs in 4 different earthenware vases of very precise colors, placed in direction of the 4 cardinal points.

They place the dead inside a flat-basis sarcophagus, with the arms crossed on the chest and the fingers spread, a golden funerary mask like the Blacks of the Nile valley used to do. The Amerindians used to stretch out the members of the nobility’s heads like the daughters of the pharaoh Akhenaton or like used to do until a decade ago the Mangbetu from Congo. The purple color served for the same ceremonial purposes in Africa as well as in America.

This is how the Sudanese, bearers of the Egyptian civilization, initiated the Indian Olmecs of Mexico into the African culture and technology. This Olmec civilization was the first monumental civilization of America, the mother of the famous Inca and Maya civilizations. The Sudanese presence in America enlightens us particularly about the Black race of Mayas we have seen hereinabove. Therefore, the Maya were evidently of Egyptian-Sudanese descent.

As for the Aztec civilization, it benefited from the contribution of the Madinka to the Amerindians’ genius 700 years ago. To summarize, here are the similarities between America and ancient Africa, which do not give any way to coincidence, and affirm without a doubt the African presence in ancient America. This is a summary of the detailed, long 35 page-demonstration of Ivan Van Sertima on the civilizing role of Blacks in America. Far from having undertaken an extermination action like the Europeans later did, Kamita accompanied the Amerindians in the main stages of the blooming of their genius. It’s clear that reading the book would allow more certainty on the topic.

In order to illustrate our words, we add below the first part of this documentary that shows in a strict way the similarities between ancient Egypt, the ancient America civilizations and the Easter Island one. In particular, the complexity of the architecture is studied in it.

PS : If it is Africans who are at the origin of the Olmec civilization, if the links between Africa and America are undeniable, we know from the writing of this article that the oldest civilization in America is not The Olmec civilization, or even that of Caral Supe in South America, but it is Bimini, a much older civilization in the West Indies. We shall soon write an article on this civilization and its interest to Africa.
