Description

Kwanzaa began as an American African holiday in 1966. It is seven (7) days long beginning December 26 and ending on January 1. Each day is named for one of the Nguzo Saba (Seven Principles). Kwanzaa was designed as a creative mixture of Continental African and world wide African culture and is based on proud tradition and reason. In this country many of us are far removed from the agricultural origins of our people, yet it is appropriate for us to celebrate and thank the Creator for all we have received throughout the previous year and to celebrate our joint productivity collectively – our first fruits.

Each day of Kwanzaa one of the Seven Principles (Nguzo Saba) is celebrated.

NGUZO SABA – (The Seven Principles) *

Umoja (Unity) -To strive for and maintain unity in the family, community, nation and race.*
Kujichagulia (Self-Determination) – To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves and speak for ourselves.*
Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility) – To build and maintain our community together and make our brothers* and sisters* problems ours and to solve them together.*
Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics) – To build and maintain our own stores and businesses and to profit from them together.*
Nia (Purpose) – To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community to restore our people to our traditional greatness.*
Kuumba (Creativity) – To do always as much as we can, in any way we can, to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than when we inherited it.*
Imani (Faith) – To believe with all our hearts in our God, our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders and in the righteousness and victory of our struggle.
