Themes

INTUITIVENESS

Ndyuka Land inspires the community by providing insight into the power of Ndyuka art, culture, innovation, and social development. We offer a rare uncovering of the veil into the self-emancipation mindset, formulated through contemporary education, workshops, and training development.

INTELLIGENCE

One of the visions of Ndyuka Land is to promote intelligence by raising awareness of the preservation of knowledge of the Ndyuka culture and traditions. Ndyuka Land promotes the acquisition and application of knowledge through historical teaching and storytelling techniques. Through film, publication, and entertainment, cultural awareness and ethnic preservation is strengthened, unleashing youth with the aptitude to create legacy for future generations.

FAITH

The traditional practices and faith convictions of African ancestry have helped shape modern-day doctrine and belief systems. The Ndyukas believe that it is through their faith in God that their ancestors were able to escape slavery and establish themselves as free people. Ndyuka Land reemerges the spiritual awakening of African legacy, creating within a faith that breathes freedom and speaks victory. Community members are guided through ancestral boldness and spiritual teachings to enhance faith and fortitude for uninhibited living.

RESILIENCE

It is clear that the Ndyukas were mistreated in the worst form, but that did not stop them from bouncing back. Ndyuka Land believes that one can fall victim but yet recover and receive restitution. As a result, Ndyuka Land promotes the ongoing healing process of those that were victimized by creating resources that are relevant and efficient towards the healing process.

Ndyuka Land is the story of a people mistreated and tortured in the worst form, yet they abandoned fear for fight, leading them to freedom and cultural restoration. Resilience is created through providing a community voice and relevant resources for cultural healing and generational trauma recovery.

ENDURANCE

Ndyuka Land is commissioned to drive equality and justice for underserved and systematically disproportionate populations. Traditional and cultural teachings invoke determination, knowledge, and innovation, creating holistic citizens pursuant to global success, opportunity, and effective cultural exchange.
