Ankh Institute

Ankh Institute

Ankh Institute is the educational arm of Ta-Nefer Ankh. The objective of Ankh Institute is to impart information pertaining to the 'Way Of Life' and Kemet Communalism - from ancient times to the present.

Kemet is the model upon which civilization developed and is patterned. The Kemet Model articulates the best methodology for creating societies for 'optimal living'. For thousands of years the creed: "Speak truth and do good" was a daily practice in Kemet, and other African societies. Consequently these societies endured upon the ideal and optimal 'ways of life' that benefited everyone.

Global invasions by Aryans debilitated, disrupted or destroyed the 'Way of Life' for every society they encountered. This has had catastrophic impact and consequences on the affected societies. And though Aryans have attempted modeling their societies on that of Kemet they have not been able to so, because they have not been capable to 'speak truth and do good'. In fact they live opposite the way of life.

Through Ankh Institute the origin and development of the Kemet Model, the day to day 'way of life', and the religious philosophy and spirituality are explained. Additionally, Kemet's world impact is demonstrated and reviewed.

The debilitating impacts of Aryan invasions are examined, and the subsequent plagiarisms and usurpations of African identity are revealed.

Through Ankh Institute blueprints for reconstructing societies from the Kemet Model for 'optimal living' is demonstrated and explained.

Ankh Institute Related topics including African civilizations (development and demise), Africancentricity, Aryancentricity, racism (its origins, development and use), Aryan pseudo-religious belief systems (including Judaism, Christianity, and Islam), and African liberation are addressed by Ankh Institute.
