WHO WE ARE
Jamii™ (pronounced JahMe), means “community” in Swahili. We are a global community-based spiritual organization that focuses on Futuristic Indigenous Lifestyle Education.
WHAT WE DO
At Jamii, we utilize our Indigenous Art and Culture to educate families and revitalize communities. We accomplish this through our creative, interactive Learning Through Play experiences that encourage inter-generational relationships, healthy living, and unity in the community.
Our organization functions through three interdependent components:
1. Education Component
The goal of our education component is to provide community members with a solid cultural foundation, and an ever-expanding resource for continued education.
2. Community Component
The foundation of our community component is our community members who are the center and driving force of our organization. It is the source of creativity, culture, strength and values.
3. Economic Component
Our economic component is a cooperative economic system that circulates currency and resources to our community and Indigenous communities around the world.
We intend to provide our members with the necessary tools to manage their own mental, spiritual, and physical health. We intend to lay a solid foundation by introducing a Futuristic Indigenous way of life, which is rooted in the culture and wisdom of our Ancestors.
WHAT WE KNOW
We are all children of The Most High Supreme Creator (Olodumare, Amen, Nyame, Ntu, Amma, Igziabeher, Brahma, Allah, Jah, The All, The Source, The Most High, God, etc.), and there is beauty in every one of us. Each of us has a distinct personality and a unique gift to share with the world. No one is better than the other, just different. We celebrate each other’s differences because we realize that we are parts of the same whole.
Although we do not subscribe to any particular religious doctrine, we recognize that many paths lead to Divinity. We welcome Indigenous People of all faiths, cultures, and backgrounds to join us as vessels for the manifestation of The Most High Supreme Creator here on Earth.
Our mission is to establish a peaceful, sustainable, autonomous Indigenous System that is grounded in Indigenous Culture and balanced by Universal Law.
The title “Indigenous” is being used to describe the Original so-called “Black/Afrikan/Negroid” Man & Woman, who are Indigenous to the Earth. The intention behind using the title “Indigenous,” is to unify the Original People of the world, and dissolve the illusion of separation by language, ethnic culture, titles, and imaginary borders. Asé.
All Jamii events are safe sacred spaces for community members to freely practice our culture. We require attendees to enter these spaces with pure intentions and respect each other as Father & Mother, Brother & Sister, Son & Daughter. Asé.
Jamii™ is a non-profit organization pursuant to Section 501 (c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code. Contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
WHAT IS FUTURISTIC INDIGENOUS?
Futuristic Indigenous is a way of life. It is the practical application of Indigenous Wisdom and Culture in today’s society.
Drum Healing Ceremonies
Local Business Partnerships
It has been an honor and a privilege to serve our community this year. With limited staff and funding, we still managed to accomplish so much over a short period.
Our events this year served over 200 families, created economic opportunities for 11 local businesses, forged 6 non-profit alliances, and created close to 30 jobs for local artists.
We were also able to utilize our Indigenous Art & Culture to:
- Revitalize a historic Broward County, FL community
- Perform over 100 drum healing ceremonies
- Serve over 100 seniors in memory care facilities throughout South Florida
We are grateful to be expanding every day as a community asset and resource. We look forward to continuing to serve our community in 2023 and beyond! Asé
