Nana Yao Opare Dinizulu I - Founder

In 1965, Nana Yao Opare Dinizulu 1, made a journey through space and time connecting the past, present and future. This was the year he met Nana Akua Oparebea, Okomfohene of the Akonnedi Shrine in Larteh, Ghana. This meeting functioned as the completion of a circuit, like an electrical circuit, that supplied the energy or current, fueling the fires that bring us to this year 2000. In this year of 2001, we celebrate 30 years of Akan priesthood in the Americas.  

Nana Yao's vision was to build institutions based on our traditions, history and culture. Many of our actions, thoughts and feelings, as a people here in the Americas, came straight from our West African heritage. Often these were that things that sustained us through all adversity but often we were not consciously aware of them nor did we recognize their origin and special affinity to us. Nana Yao's vision was to create institutions that reflected our history our heritage and us. He wanted to establish a system of empowerment to give the spiritual, physical and intellectual foundation which would allow us to know who we are, why we are here and where we are going.

When we have the determination to restrain our lower desires, the door is opened for us to fulfill our highest aspirations.
