One of my friends contacted me and asked me if I knew about a symbol that she had been seeing her whole life that Idoma Chief, Audu Akaja weres on his crown, they call it OFULA . The symbol resembles and eye, and many know the eye symbol to reflect, the eye of Horus in Egypt. I have found many culture connections between Egypt and all of Africa. With finding in Central Africa being the birthplace for many cultures, and some of Africas most popular DNA, that has migrated around the globe. This symbol has strong ties to their religion as well
"Idomas have strong attachment to the Alekwu-spirit of the ancestors which is believed to stand as an invisible watchdog of the family and communities while checkmating vices like adultery, theft and murder"
Heres what the egyptian eye represents, I think it has the same meaning
"The Eye Of Horus is the most sacred Egyptian Symbol dating back to the pre-dynastic period. It represents the eye of the ancient Egyptian God Horus, “The Sky God”. This magical symbol represents Protection and Resurrection. It is eluded to that one who adorns this “Sacred Eye Of Horus”, will forever be blessed with prosperity, wisdom and good health. It was also used on the dead, as they transcended through the afterlife, to ward off evil spirits and for their rebirth.
Using DNA Idomas tribe ultimately takes them back to a place of origin 30,000 years ago, in the Congo, in the area of the Twa. Here is where I found another tribe from that same area with that same symbol. Read this passage from its Author Loango tribe, Congo Quote “It seemed that having arrived and been received by the princes at the nkumbi-tree, Maluango had now to await the visits of the Bakici baci; i.e., the representatives of all the different families owning sacred ground within his kingdom. These people were described to me as the "eyes" of the people. Each one of these had to visit Maniluemba and receive a present from him, before NGANGA MPUNZI and his people could come and cut the grass and prepare a place where NGANGA NVUMBA, the king-elect, could erect his dwelling (shimbec). Until all these ceremonies were over Maniluemba was not allowed to live within a shimbec. Thus the sacrifice the old man was making was no imaginary one, for, as will be remembered, he was very comfortably housed and surrounded in his village NDEMBUANO.” Further me and my researcher friend Dereje have found multiple connections with African Phallic symbols worn on head gear of top officials, in and out of Arica. We have found these horn like symbols from East to West Africa, Egypt, Mesopotamia, Europe, and ancient South America.
Oromo of Ethiopia and The Yoruba of West Africa both wear the same head pieces. The headgear worn by oduduwa father of yoruba people, is the same as its found in other civilizations, where high officials wear the head piece . In Oromo of Ethiopia its called a Qallacha, and its meaning is “Ancestral Spirituality Laws, Beliefs & Rituals”. Also, as person Qaallu or Qaallacha is “Generationally Fist-Born & Holy Wise Father or Head of Rituals”’., and in Egypt its called a Uraeus,stylized, upright form of an Egyptian cobra (asp, serpent, or snake), used as a symbol of sovereignty, royalty, deity and divine authority in ancient Egypt.
