Over the years, a lot has been written about the history of ancient Egyptian civilizations.It is also interesting to note that this civilization has been bedeviled by a number of mysteries, controversies, distortions and envies from various writers particularly western scholars. This is not surprising knowing that mankind by nature is a political animal, and play the game where by one group wants to control, dominate, and exploit another group. In essence one may call it gangster-ism however one group may want to think otherwise.
To put the record right though, and despite all the deliberate confusions, the history of ancient Egyptian civilization was entirely founded by Africans. These Africans, who were fundamentally from Luo ethnicity, are of the “Itiyo-pi-anu” people that inhabited the Nile valley from Great lakes region of Africa up to modern Egypt. The history of the Luos, or the ‘Itiyo-pi-ani’ people and their link to ancient Egypt has however been consistently fought and buried despite glaring achievements which rightly attribute to them.
One of the many achievements of the Luos was how they became very successful economically, leading to supplying gold, animals, wheat and education not only to the Greeks, but also the Romans. People have wondered how this ethnic group of black people became so prosperous in many ways including militarily, politically, socially, spiritually and economically.
However, two key factor seems to explain it all: the presence of the Nile and knowledge of cosmology. This wonderful economic success story of the Luos is being revisited by serious African scholars in the forthcoming documentary entitled the HAPI. Some of these scholars discuss the documentary in this video. There are also a growing number of scholars and the general public interested in the history of ancient Egypt who are also taking note of this vital development. It is a development that will definitely give Africans one more chance to recover their past glory from and for an economic viewpoint knowing that history repeats itself.
