BEAUTIFUL WELL KEPT WOOL FEZ . I KEEP THIS IN MY STUDY ENVIRONMENT TO GROUND THE ATMOSPHERICS . Categories: Africa House Articles News Reports Poetry Prophet Rastas . -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Khememu – The Black People of Ancient Egypt Kmt means black, and it only means black, it is what follows that tells us – black (what)? Some examples of usage: (Note: the ‘t’ is silent, and is merely used to make the word a feminine noun.) Kmt nu = Black nation (the name for Ancient Egypt) Kmt ta = Black land Kmt pw = It is black nn Kmt pw = It is not black (Ahn.Ohn Kem poo) St Kmt = Black Woman (Say.Kem) (and Because it refers to Isis; her name comes first) The question is often asked “Why is it called Egypt?” This question can best be answered correctly by first remembering that the Ancient Egyptian language is NOT a dead language. It not only survives as Coptic Egyptian, but also in related languages such as Wolof (Senegal) and Yoruba (Nigeria). If this fact is kept in mind, one cannot drift into spurious speculations. Kemet: The Original Name of Egypt The oldest, official name for Egypt, by the Ancient Egyptians themselves, is Kmt (Keme) or Black. The contemporary Egyptian (Coptic) words for Egypt are (depending on the particular dialect): Kame, Keme, Kimi, and Kheme – all of which mean Black. Also in Coptic Egyptian we have, kem, kame, kmi, kmem, kmom or “to be black.” The Ancient Egyptians referred to themselves as Kmtjw (Kemetu) and Kmmw (Kmemu) or Black people (In contemporary Egyptian: Kmemou=Black people). In Wolof, Khem means “burnt to black.” “Egypt”: Greek Corruptions The Greeks corrupted an Ancient Egyptian name for Memphis – Ht-Ki-Pth (hay-gip-Toh), “The Temple of Ptoh’s Essence,” to Aigyptos. Keeping in mind that the Greeks had a convention of adding an ‘s’ to Ancient Egyptian proper nouns: Osiri (Usiri in contemporary Egyptian) > Osiris Isi (Ese in contemporary Egyptian) > Isis Pth(Toh) > Tos “Misr” and “Mizraim”: Semitic Corruptions British Egyptologist E.A.W. Budge was one of the first to remark that “The name Mizraim may have been given Egypt (by foreigners) in respect of its double wall.” The name Misr is indeed a Semiticized form of Ancient Egyptian: Medjr = walled district Medjre = tower, fortress These Ancient Egyptian words became Meetsrayeem (Egypt) and Meetsree (Egyptian) in Hebrew, and in Arabic; Misr and Masri respectively. It is the same as Westerners calling China, “China,” after the original Qin dynasty emperor (“Tschina” in Indo-European). The Chinese, however, call their country Zhongguo or ‘the Middle Kingdom.’ Ancient Egyptian glossary ‘Egypt’ [ ] = Contemporary Egyptian (Coptic) words Eturmeh .North river (Lower Egypt) [Eioor - river] Etures .South river (Upper Egypt) Hedje .White Crown country (Upper Egypt) Keme .Black (All of Egypt) [Keme - Black] Kemi ”Southern” country (Upper Egypt) Kem Wer Miri.”the Great Black Sea” – which later would be referred to as Deshret Miri or “The Red Sea” Pasheti The two divisions of Egypt; one belonging to Horus and the other to Set [Pashe - boundary] Res .the South (Upper Egypt) [Res - south] Shmo .the South (Upper Egypt) Sonti ”the two halves of Egypt” (Upper and Lower Egypt) TaMera .Land of the Inundation TaMeri My beloved land Tawi the Two lands (Upper and Lower Egypt) ‘Egyptians’ Kemetu Black’s peoples (Egyptian citizens) Kmemu Black people (the Egyptian people) Resu .Southern people (Upper Egyptians) Ret The Men [Rot - men] Ret na Romé .We Men above mankind [Romé - men;mankind] Romé n Keme.Men of Black (“Egyptians”) TaMeru .Land of the Inundation people (Egyptians) Tawiu .The Two Lands people (Egyptian) [Ta;to - land] KEMET A comprehensive list of the structure and usages of perhaps the most significant word in the Ancient Egyptian language.
