Rael appoints Dr. Arikana Chihombori Quao, ‘‘Honorary Guide’’ for humanity

Ouagadougou, May 5, 74 aH (2020) – “Maitreya Rael, the Nkua Tulendo, spiritual leader and founder of the International Raelian Movement (IRM), appointed on Friday, May 1, 2020, Honorary Guide of the Raelian Movement for her unreserved commitment in the fight for true decolonization and development of Kama (authentic name of Africa),” announced Hortense Dodo, Ph.D., Raelian Guide and leader of the Raelian Movement for the Kamite (African) Diaspora.

“Dr. Arikana's fight for the emancipation of the African continent is expressed in several areas with strong commitment,” explained Dr. Dodo.

“She decries the Berlin Conference of 1884-1885 which, by its misdeeds, constitutes according to her a crime against humanity that she wants to fight for until death, promotes Kama as the future in the diaspora by encouraging them to return and to invest in it as outlined in the Wakanda One Village Project for instance, and advocates the emancipation of Kamite women and the assertion of their leadership,” Dodo added.

Dr. Chihombori Quao was also quoted as saying she denounces the French Colonial Pact and the CFA franc with which France continues to abuse and plunder all its former African colonies by forcing them to pay more than $500B US each year—a system of perpetual loan that enriches France while impoverishing the African countries.

Dr. Dodo further explains that Dr. Arikana Chihombori-Quao’s fight fits perfectly into the revolution for the real decolonization of Kama that Rael has been relentlessly calling Kamites to carry out over the past decades.

“Her determination, courage, fighting spirit, temerity, impartial positions, and her unwavering focus on the interests of Kama make her a revolutionary woman of the caliber of the Amazons of Dahomey, the Anshantewa of Ghana and Queen Nzinga of Angola,” concluded Dodo.

“Raelians of Kama and of its Diaspora have expressed their joy for the appointment of Dr. Arikana Chihombori-Quao as Honorary Guide for humanity by Prophet Rael, giving her their full support in the continuation of the fight,” underlined Dr. Taï Ehouan, Head of the Raelian Movement in Kama.

BLACK HISTORY MONTH celebrated by the “BACK TO KAMA” Movement

LAS VEGAS, February 10 – The celebration of the Black History Month is an opportunity for the “Back To Kama” project team to intensify their actions and promote the return of individuals of African descent to Africa. (see: www.backtokama.org)

“We were elated when Ghanaian President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, launched the ‘2019 - The Year of Return’ and our hope and dream now is to have all African countries follow in Ghana’s footsteps,” declared Gbedia Dodo, PhD, leader of the ‘Back to Kama’ project. “This month, our team will intensify its contact with most African embassies worldwide to promote our vision and offer our help to further the promotion of return to Africa (Kama) that we initiated 10 years ago,” she added.

“The ‘Year of Return’ by the Ghanaian President stimulated a massive migration towards Ghana by many African Americans and others in the Diaspora, and is a perfect illustration of what we anticipated would happen,” explained Dodo. “Within a year, significant benefits were harvested: Ghana saw an estimated $1.2B increase in revenue with the creation of new businesses and partnerships. Human and fraternal bonds were also greatly reinforced between the people of Ghana and the Africans from the Diaspora, fostering historical and cultural exchanges,” she said.

For the leader of the “Back to Kama” project, Black History Month shouldn’t only be a celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of African descendants in U.S. history, but it should also be a time to look at their future.

“For 10 years, we have brought a vision of how the success of African Americans and of all African descendants worldwide can be multiplied if furthered on the African continent,” claimed Dodo. “Our project wants to encourage all the African nations to look at the economic and societal benefits of the return of the descendants, of their stolen sons and daughters, and to not only offer free visas and the rights to abode to all African descendants, but also:

- Encourage all kings and chiefs to welcome them during a traditional ceremony, like an African traditional Baptism, to facilitate the social integration of the returning sons and daughters, giving them a true sense of belonging to a family, a village, a people;
- Ensure that the respective countries make legislation to attract foreign direct investments (from Black celebrities, entrepreneurs and others with wealth);
- Implement the Free Trade Zones law signed by the African Union, which will accelerate economic development projects;
- Provide guaranteed tax exemption on income and assets for at least 14 years to all immigrants of Kama (African) descents;
- Provide Banking Secrecy guaranteed by law (as in Switzerland);
- Adopt a common currency, for all countries in Kama and promote its financial benefits.

"As a results, these countries will be able to provide free education and free healthcare to the population, adopt the latest sciences and technologies such as biotechnology, nanotechnology, telecommunications, and online education," claimed Dodo.

“Back To Kama” also encourages the welcoming of black prisoners freed from the US prison system.
“Canada and Australia were built on the import of European prisoners. African American ex-prisoners could be trained if needed in order to acquire business entrepreneurship skills and contribute to the development of the welcoming countries,” concluded Dodo.

The “Back to Kama” project was initiated in 2009 by Rael, spiritual leader of the Raelian Movement, who said, “To save Humanity [from its self-destruction], we must first save Kama…” and saving Kama starts now with its sons and daughters from around the world making their way back home.

Rael, spiritual leader of the International Raelian Movement, has awarded Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, President of the Republic of Ghana, the title of "Honorary Guide of Humanity”.

“The Year of Return project of President Akufo-Addo is in perfect agreement with the « Back to Kama » project launched by Rael in April 2009 “, www.backtokama.org, declared Gbedia Dodo, Raelian Guide and leader of the Back to Kama project.

(Kama is the original name of Africa).

The Back to Kama organization has been campaigning to encourage celebrities, well educated, successful and affluent people of all races and religions, especially African Americans and other Africans in the diaspora to voluntarily transfer to Kama the knowledge and wealth they have rightfully accumulated overseas and to relocate their businesses and operations to Kama.

The year 2019, marks 400 years since the beginning of the Atlantic Slave Trade (the 1st official record was said to be in 1619). The President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Ado and his administration, Proclaimed the year 2019 “the Year of Return“ of all Africans dispersed in the diaspora.

“This proclamation was done at the United Nation 73rd General Assembly in NYC in front of the whole world community, added Dodo, and we are grateful that in doing so, President Akufo-Ado put on the worldwide map, the “Back to Kama” project and the “2019 Year of Return” for all the descendants of Africans who were made slaves to build the Americas and Europe for free. In doing so, President Nana Akufo-Ado has brought to the forefront and to the minds of many Africans in the Diaspora the idea to reconnect with Africa and to do business on the continent.”

In his address, the President of Ghana is also giving free visas and the right to Abode in Ghana to any Africans in the diaspora who want to visit and /or live in Ghana. Many festivities have been planned throughout the year in Ghana to attract as many Africans in the diaspora as possible and commemorate and celebrate this special year.

“The Honorary Guides of Humanity nominated by Rael are all individuals who place the well being of others and of Humanity before their own interest.” Explains Dodo. “During the month of July 2019 (73aH), the president of Ghana made an epic trip to the Caribbean islands with the goal to reconnect and fraternize with the descendants of his African ancestors. He visited Jamaica, Barbados, Guyana, Suriname, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago, and initiated talk for a sustainable economic relations and exchanges between Ghana and each of the islands. This is the very first time a seating African President makes such an official trip to the Caribbean to lay such a powerful vision. “

“President Nana Akufo-Addo has brought to the limelight and in the psyche of many African Americans and other dispersed Africans in the diaspora the fact that Africa is a great land of business opportunities” concluded Gbedia Dodo. “In his powerful visits to Kama ( Africa), Rael repeatedly said that to save humanity we must first save Africa. The 2019 Year of Return and the Back To Kama project are major steps in that direction.”

The Back to Kama project to celebrate Black History Month 2019

LAS VEGAS, January 31 – In 2009, Rael—spiritual leader of the International Raelian Movement (IRM)—launched the ‘Back to Kama’ (BTK) project to encourage well-educated, successful, and affluent people of all races and religions—especially descendants of slaves—to voluntarily migrate to Kama and relocate their businesses and operations there, along with transferring knowledge and wealth accumulated in the West. Kama is the indigenous native term for Africa (see www.backtokama.org)

And a decade later, at the 73rd United Nations General Assembly, the President of Ghana declared the year 2019 as the “Year of Return,” a year to commemorate 400 years since the commencement of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade—and to honor our African ancestors, their achievements, and contributions to the Americas and Europe—and a year to launch the return of their descendants back to the African continent, their homeland.

“For this year's Black History Month, the BTK team will intensify its interactions with celebrities, entrepreneurs, scientists, engineers and business people who could benefit from a return to Kama,” said Dr. Gbedia Dodo, President of the Back to Kama Association, in a statement released today.

“Centuries have passed since the ancestors of many accomplished people were deported and enslaved to build the American continent and the fortunes of Europe. Now it’s time to rebuild Kama,” she added.

Raelian Guide, Larry R. Abdullah (DDS, PhD), who has a general dentistry practice in Chicago, has returned to Kama for the past three years to do volunteer work as part of the Back to Kama program providing dental services to the residents most in need. This year, Dr. Abdullah and his team (The Kama Heath Alliance) are traveling to the Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso to treat as many emergency cases as possible during a 10-day visit. They look forward to returning in 2020, hopefully, with a greater variety of health care providers as to extend the panoply of health care to several local communities.

When hearing about Assanouan G’bado (formerly Kelvin Green), an African American who recently moved from the US to Côte d’Ivoire, Rael commented “It's just the beginning, millions should do it! Then white Americans will desperately try to get a visa for African countries in order to get jobs and food.”

The Prophet RAEL nominates Professor OBENGA and Dr. KABONGO "Honorary Guides for Humanity"

Abidjan December 26, 2017

"In a communication received today at the headquarters of the Raelian Movement, the Prophet RAEL, founder and spiritual leader of the International Raelian Movement (IRM) has decided to nominate Professor Théophile OBENGA and Dr. Emmanuel KABONGO Malu, Honorary Guides for Humanity for their exemplary commitment to the emancipation of peoples, particularly in Africa, through their public denunciation of the colonization and falsification of African history by Europeans, and their call to Africans to be uninhibited and cut off ties with Europe to cooperate with China, Russia and India", said Dr. Tai Ehouan, Bishop Guide, Head of IRM for Africa.
Raël then commented on these nominations in these terms:

"Yes, Africans must cut all ties with the old colonizers and turn to China, Russia, India or other former colonized. Africans must also be informed at school that the so-called "European civilization" in fact owes its existence only to African civilizations, which were the basis of Egyptian and Greek civilization.

Yes, the civilization of the pharaohs was black; yes the pharaonic language and the writing come from black Africa: Yes, this civilization was extremely advanced on all levels when the Europeans were still barbarous and uneducated people living in huts. Yes, Europeans owe their domination of the world only to the theft of technologies (such as gunpowder), cultures and inventions made by Blacks and Asians, and which they then used to colonize and enslave those they had plundered and continue to plunder, with regard to Africa in what constitutes a consented rape (violation, conspiracy).

Yes, Africa must unite, create its own currency, abandon the religions and languages of the colonizers and create a federal army equipped with the nuclear weapon. Otherwise, the ex-colonizers will always be ready to use force to maintain their domination and their looting and place their corrupt puppets in power. "

He added: "It is surprising to note that of all the races that exist on earth, only the African continent does not have the nuclear weapon as if the Blacks were too inferior to dispose of it, like these Blacks exposed in human zoos, not so long ago, and considered as animals.
Africa wake up! And don't forget that the first human beings created by the Elohim, "Adam and Eva", were Black!”

"RAEL has been formulating these recommendations to Africans for three decades", says Bishop Guide Tai Ehouan. "In the world global political context, which is putting more and more pressure on the future of Africa, it is a pleasure for Raelians to see Pan-Africanists begin to realize this need for a radical break with the West. The stances of Professor Obenga and Dr. Kabongo are therefore a perfect leaven for the conscience of African youth ".

RAEL's proposals to totally cut cooperation with the former colonizer and to ally itself with Asia in order to definitively get rid of the colonizer and the perverse effects brought by the neo-colonialism that plagues the development of Africa, feeds poverty and denies a better future to African youth, are available at www.unitedkingdomsofkama.org.

For the 151st Juneteenth, Back to Kama supports campaign for Juneteenth to become U.S. national holiday

PHOENIX, June 3 – According to a statement released today, the Back to Kama Organization is supporting a campaign for Juneteenth to become a national holiday throughout the nation. Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the end of slavery in the United States.

Juneteenth celebrations are also held in other countries around the world because of the African Diaspora: including Ghana, Honduras, Trinidad, Tobago, Japan, Taiwan, England, and France.
The BTK (www.backtokama.org ) will celebrate the 151st anniversary of Juneteenth in the US in: Elizabeth City, N.C.; Houston, Texas; and Phoenix, Ariz.

“We encourage all our friends and followers on social media to come out and show their support for this very special celebration of freedom,” said Kelvin Green, spokesperson for Back to Kama. [See: https://www.facebook.com/BackToKama.org]

He explained that Kama is the original name for Africa used by its indigenous people and added, “Back to Kama is a voluntary migration campaign to encourage well-educated, successful and affluent people of all races and religions – particularly those who are descendants of slaves – to voluntarily transfer to Kama the knowledge and wealth they have rightfully accumulated in the Americas and relocate their businesses and operations to Kama."

In April 2009, Rael, spiritual leader of the International Raelian Movement, initiated the Back to Kama project as the best solution for peace and social equality in the Americas and worldwide. According to Rael, the BTK plan would not only solve the economic crisis faced by most Kama nations, but can serve as “the most comprehensive proposal ever for addressing and solving the issue of reparations for the African slave trade and exploitative colonization, neither of which has been recognized as a crime against humanity.”

The organization believes governments on both sides of the Atlantic can gain much from a stronger Kama. It is therefore encouraging them to offer incentives for African-Americans and other descendants of slaves to establish businesses in Kama and to move their operations to specialized Free Trade Zones.

“Lets embrace this opportunity to stand together for this 151st Juneteenth to celebrate freedom and the advancement of all human beings on planet Earth,” Green concluded.

Rael supports ‘Right to Return’ for those of African descent

LAS VEGAS, March 6 – Several years ago, Rael, spiritual leader of the International Raelian Movement (IRM), inspired the movement “Back to Kama” (the original name for Africa used by its indigenous people) to encourage well-educated, successful and affluent people of all races and religions – especially descendants of slaves – to migrate to Kama and relocate their businesses and operations there, along with transferring knowledge and wealth accumulated in the West.

“The Back to Kama movement is gaining momentum now,” Rael said in a statement released today by the IRM. “However, interested candidates are facing an obstacle that tempers their enthusiasm.”

Describing the obstacle as one that is “of an administrative nature and easy to overcome,” Rael went on to compare the current situation with the one that existed right when the nation of Israel was first created. He pointed out that the Israeli government immediately established ‘The Right to Return,” whereby any Jew, no matter where he or she lived at the time, could immediately receive an Israeli passport and the right to live in Israel.

“The same Right to Return should be instituted by the West African states from which most ancestors of African-Americans came, as well ancestors of those now living in the Caribbean islands and South America,” Rael explained. “African states cannot afford to slow the return [of those with African ancestry] for administrative reasons. Their return, with their wealth and knowledge, is real manna, and it also renders justice for the [enslaved] ancestors.”

In today’s statement, Rael asked all Raelians in Kama to launch a broad campaign that will pressure that continent’s governments to immediately adopt right-of-return laws for all descendants of American and Caribbean slaves.

“It would be justice if those who have accumulated wealth and knowledge in countries that enslaved their ancestors to leave these countries and benefit the countries that were forcibly deprived of this invaluable human capital,” Rael said. "They should even request that the [formerly] enslaving countries issue huge monetary compensation to help them return to Africa.”

'Back to Kama' organization announces new campaign for Black History Month

LAS VEGAS, Feb. 7 - “For February, Black History Month, our organization will intensify its contacts with influential people who could benefit from a return to the African continent, known as Kama to the original inhabitants before colonizers came and renamed it,” said Dr. Gbedia Dodo, President of the Back to Kama Association, in a statement released today.
“Centuries have passed since the ancestors of many accomplished people were deported and enslaved to build the American continent and the fortunes of Europe. Now it’s time to rebuild Kama.”

Dodo said the Back to Kama (BTK) dream was launched in March 2009, after international spiritual leader Rael emphasized in a speech that the African continent should be saved first to avert violent global self-destruction and the end of humanity.

“Kama has the potential to reach a modern post-industrialized level quickly, and without the need to go through the industrialized steps taken by the West,” Dodo explained.

“It’s like a virgin land for entrepreneurs willing to give something back to the continent of their origin. And that’s especially true for all the descendants of slaves, who could return now to the home of their ancestors and restore the dignity and unique peaceful culture that the colonizers destroyed centuries ago.”

Dodo said the new campaign is primarily targeting the African-American community.

“Although Black History Month is a positive legal step, the danger for the African- American community will be to continue looking in the rear view mirror rather than start looking forward,” Dodo said. “Back to Kama offers the African Diaspora a dream solution that will transform our present fate and lead us into the future.”

She said her organization’s goal is to support new entrepreneurial efforts in Africa by informing the West – and successful African-Americans in particular – of the superior benefits to be derived from doing business in Kama.

“With the increasing financial crisis in the United States and Europe, many nations in Kama are becoming the best destinations for successful business investments,” Dodo pointed out.
“Together, we can make this dream a reality and turn Kama into one of the most blossoming continents on the planet.”

She said the Back to Kama team will contact celebrities, entrepreneurs, scientists, engineers and business people throughout Black History Month.

“We’ll give these movers and shakers a detailed vision of what Kama’s future can be like if they unite to make it happen,” Dodo said. “And we mustn’t forget Rael’s warning that saving the planet depends on saving Kama first.”
