Naba Lamoussa Morodenibig

In the year 360, on the 9th day of the month of Tehuti of the Kemetic Sidereal calendar (September 1960), Master (Neb) Naba Lamoussa Morodenibig transitioned into our world, as we all do, from the Imentet (World of the Dead).

Master Naba was a Gourmantche from Fada N'Gourma (a city East of Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso). The Gourmantche are a sub-set of the larger Dagomba (Dogon) people.

The Dogon People

The name Dogon comes from the word Dogou, which means land. The Dogon are considered the landlords of Meritah (Original name for Africa) because their culture dedicates itself to preserving the Earth and everything that lives on it.

The Dogon once lived within the Pharaonic society in the Nile Valley. They are comprised of several different bloodlines that represent the elite of the Pharaonic society.

Dogon bloodlines include the families of the Naba (priests/healers/temple caretakers), Woba (farmers), Yonlis (guardians of the kingship), Kediou (builders), Mende (blacksmiths), etc.

These bloodlines are found in tribes such as Gourmantche, Chibisi, Dogomba, Farafara, Sonike, Germa, etc. and each Dogon bloodline is a guardian of Kemetic knowledge related to a specific purpose.

The Dogon are often known among academia for their knowledge in astronomy and their link to the Sirius star system. For this reason, they are one of the most studied cultures in the world.

Master Naba Lamoussa Morodenibig is of the Naba bloodline.

Origins of "Naba" Name

The name "NABA" is a very old name, It comes from the Medu (Hieroglyphic word) "NEB", which means master, priest or researcher.

There is even a Medu character (hieroglyph) of the Naba name and bloodline which is

Medu Language for Neb meaning " Master "

The Naba are a long lineage of priests and they are one of two priest bloodlines who ensured the spirituality for the Pharaoh’s position in Kemet.

Two bloodlines served the pharaoh. One served openly, the other in secret. The Naba bloodline assisted the Pharaoh in secret. This is because the leadership of the kemetic civilization never put all their eggs in one basket.

Responsibilities of the NABA Bloodline

Since the beginning of the kemetic civilization, every Dogon bloodline had been entrusted with a specialty which enabled its members to either heal a specific ailment or make a specific contribution towards the survival and well-being of humanity.

The Naba name and Dogon bloodline are known as the shrine (temple) keepers who are responsible for preserving and administering all activities related to geomancy, astronomy, philosophy, kemetic spiritual knowledge and wisdom.

Long before the Pharaonic dynasties, the Nabas maintained a direct lineage of Kemetic priests and master healers. They are also referred to as the intermediaries between humans and the Divine World.

Devoted to this duty, the Naba bloodline initiated every one of its descendants to carry on the legacy of the very first ancestors of the bloodline, those called the patriarchal ancestors.

These initiations have been going on since ancient times from father to son, from mother to daughter, from mouth to ear, and from generation to generation and they continue to this present day


Migration away from the Nile Valley

Around 400 BC, the momentum of historical colonial invasions increased into the Nile Valley and the colonizers started to be seen as a real threat to kemetic culture and spirituality.

The Dogon bloodlines were then instructed by the Pharaoh and the other members of the kemetic leadership to preserve the purity of the spiritual knowledge and wisdom that they kept.

The Dogon families then migrated across the Sahara desert and went deeper into Merita (Original name for Africa) so that they could preserve kemetic culture and spirituality by keeping it away from the destruction brought by the colonizers.

The result of this migration was that the purity of the wisdom and knowledge of kemetic culture and spirituality remained intact, untouched and free from any colonial influences since the time of the pharaohs.

Today, the Dogon are seen as a large community of kemetic people who can be found living by the bend of the Niger River and in many other countries in Western Meritah (Africa).

The purity of this kemetic wisdom and knowledge is maintained through secrecy and is handed down from generation to generation for millennia through Kemetic Dogon spiritual initiations taught within the various Dogon bloodlines.

To protect the sacred Kemetic educational system, the Dogon bloodlines decided not to build any elaborate and grand structures similar to ones they built in the Nile valley. Coming to the conclusion that elaborate and grand structures are not a requirement to live a spiritual life of quality.They decided instead to focus on inner spirituality.

Instead, our sacred Kemetic educational system, from the original Pharaonic Nile valley civilization was cleverly hidden through Kemetic/Dogon, spiritual initiations. These initiations take place within humble villages in Meritah (Original name for Africa) under the protection of the Dogon Bloodlines.

This Kemetic wisdom and knowledge is not lost, it is available. The Kem people made a personal choice to live in humble villages because they want to live in balance and harmony with themselves, nature and the universe.

The Dogon bloodlines are also known as wisdom keepers and they still maintain the responsibility of preserving the legacy of Kemetic culture.

Master Naba's bloodline in particular, being priests, healers and temple caretakers would travel (to other places to spread Kemetic wisdom and knowledge), in a humble, light and unassuming manner so as not to attract any fanfare to the different Dogon villages.

Kemetic Dogon Spiritual Initiation

The Kemetic, Dogon, spiritual initiation is what modern anthropologists call “secret societies” or “mystery schools”.

To acquire our Kemetic spiritual wisdom and knowledge which spans a period of over 150,000 years, an individual would have to undergo an intense initiation process that includes a rigid and sacred system of education.

In this modern era, many other people have studied what they could about our Kemetic culture through the ruins of our Kemetic temples, statues, monuments and tombs in the Nile Valley and surrounding areas.

They have built the institution of “Egyptology” around our Kemetic culture and have organised countless anthropological studies to discover more about our Kemetic Ancestors.

They are still trying to comprehend Kemetic culture but are unable to duplicate our advanced knowledge and wisdom through only studying what our Ancestors left behind.

Master Naba's Initiation

Master Naba began the spiritual initiations at the tender age of eight. As a young boy, Master Naba progressed through Dogon spiritual initiations, traditional education while also attending colonial schools.

As he grew older, Master Naba excelled in his Kemetic spiritual/traditional education and also attended colonial University in Kenya.

As he rose through the Dogon initiatic levels, he became a master and a worldwide authority of astronomy, parapsychology, metaphysics, sociology, psychology, philosophy and geomancy.

Geomancy is the science of reading the Earth energies. This is also the world’s oldest initiatic science known traditionally as M’TAM.

Master Naba eventually surpassed his Masters by achieving the highest ranked level of Kemetic priesthood. He became a Kemetic Dogon Master High Priest, Master Healer, Cultural Activist and Speaker.

As one of the most knowledgeable Kemetic spiritual masters of the Dogon people, Master Naba was seen throughout Meritah (Traditional Africa) as one of the greatest Masters of M'TAM knowledge.

Naba Elder from Morodeni Village

As with many others, Master Naba recognised that humanity was living a detrimental and self-destructive modern lifestyle. Unable to sit back and watch as people continued down this self-destructive path. Master Naba knew that exposure to Kemetic spiritual wisdom and knowledge would allow people to live a life of quality.

Master Naba sat down with the Dogon royalty and elders of the Kemetic initiatic sciences and pleaded with them to allow him to bring forth the Kemetic, spiritual wisdom, knowledge and culture to the Diaspora and the outside world.

Master Naba was granted permission and allowed to lift the veil of secrecy that surrounded the Kemetic, Dogon, spiritual initiation system. He then brought forth the Kemetic, spiritual wisdom and knowledge that had previously been closed to the outside world for more than 2,500 years.

This means that Master Naba was the only authentic Dogon Master and High Priest of Traditional Kemetic Spirituality that had the knowledge, authority and permission from the Dogon royalty and elders of the initiation to initiate people outside of Meritah into Kemetic Spirituality.

Keeping true to the Dogon legacy, Master Naba also visited over 120 countries.  His presence was constantly requested in many Temples and Holy places all over the world.

Master Naba spoke thirteen languages, including English, French and German, and was a Master of "Egyptology" and Medu (Hieroglyphics).

On the 15th day of the month of Heb Senseni in the year 407 of the Kemetic sidereal calendar (July 2008), Master Naba transitioned back into the Imentet (The World of the Dead or the Ancestral World) from where he continues to guide his legacy up to this day.

Master Naba dedicated his life to educating people on the principles of our Kemetic Ancestors. It is by his efforts that various treasures of the Nile valley civilisation have been made available to the world again after being hidden for more than 2,500 years.

The Earth Center

The Earth Center has locations in:

West Africa (Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso and Tchaoudjo, Togo).

United States of America: (Chicago, IL; Baltimore, MD; Houston, TX; San Diego, CA; and Newark, NJ (NYC)).

Canada (Montreal)

To preserve and promote the traditions from the original, Ancestral culture of humanity, in order to sustain the health and well-being of all people.


To provide humanity with the tools necessary to reconnect with Kemetic traditions and spirituality.

The Earth Center also works with the villages and towns located in the Sub-Saharan Nations of Burkina Faso, Ghana, Togo, and Benin where the people are fighting to preserve their traditional cultures.

Modern colonialism continues to challenge traditional concepts of land ownership and indigenous ways of life by destroying the lifestyles and cultures that have existed in this region for thousands of years.

Neb Naba's Legacy

To continue the legacy of Kemetic priests who helped people live a life of quality through Kemetic wisdom and knowledge. Master Naba founded The Earth Center in the year 396 of the Kemetic Sidereal Calendar (1996).

The Earth Center is dedicated to preserving and promoting indigenous culture worldwide. One of The Earth Center’s primary objectives is to assist in protecting the authenticity of traditional Meritah (Africa), including its Kemetic Priesthood, spiritual temples and natural resources.

The Earth Center is an institution that represents the existing temples, which now allow people to re-connect with their Kemetic legacy and initiate back into the traditions and carry that knowledge to their surrounding communities. The Earth Center is now the unified form of the Kemetic temples.

The Earth Center is a multi-faceted international non-profit comprised of the following three main branches:

M'TAM Schools of Kemetic Philosophy & Spirituality

The M’TAM Schools (M'TAM: study of the Earth energies) provide authentic, Kemetic, initiation classes in the tradition of the education system of Kemet (Africa).

It is important to understand that Kemetic knowledge is not lost. It has been hidden and preserved and can only be attained by going through the same Kemetic initiations that many Kemioo (Africans) have been going through for over 50,000 years.

These initiations still take place in Meritah (Africa) and are kept secret and far away from the corruption of modern societies. The M’TAM Schools were specially created to help people who want to learn and apply Kemetic Spirituality in their lives so that they can start living a life of quality. This is Master Naba’s legacy.

This legacy is presented to you to help in your pursuit of Divine quality in this human world as well as a deep consideration of the path your spirit will take to the Imentet (Ancestral World) and further into the cycles of life as represented by the Ankh.

Ankhkasta Natural Healing

This is the healing branch of the Earth Center.

It is an organizational network of more than 10,000 Traditional Healers throughout the continent of Meritah (Africa) whose aim is to reintroduce humanity to herbal recipes and traditional healing techniques by providing a natural healing alternative that contrasts with the modern world’s approach to health.

This network of holistic healers uses knowledge that has been preserved in Meritah (Africa) for millennia. Ankhkasta’s natural products and services are highly effective and offer non-invasive alternatives to the modern medical system.

Ankhkasta Healers work to strengthen and protect Traditional Healing and strives to make herbal remedies available to people outside of Meritah (Africa). One of Ankhkasta’s goals is to unite Healers and prevent imperialists and colonialists from continuing to plagiarise and usurp indigenous knowledge.

Firefly Productions

This is the home of the works of Master Naba and the writings of various M’TAM initiates. Firefly Productions strives to educate people all over the world about traditional culture, spirituality and philosophy through various written and visual media publications.

As a writer, Master Naba had published over 25 books. He had written poetry and fiction as well as books and articles on M'TAM, culture, history and spirituality.

What makes these three main branches work well together and complement each other is the foundation of Kemetic culture. This foundation is known as The Great Book of Divine Ordinances which contain 77 Commandments.

The 77 Commandments defined the "Code of Human Behaviour" which enabled Kemet to grow, thrive and flourish for more than 150,000 years.

The origins of The Great Book of Divine Ordinances start by acknowledging that we need some sort of structure and guidelines in order to move forward as a people. If we focus and work together in moving in the right direction, so much can be achieved.

According to our Holy Kemetic texts, the 19th day of the month of Tehuti is the most important Holy Day in our Kemetic culture because it is the day in which the human world was exposed to the Divine World.

The 42 Negative Confessions listed in the Paprus of Ani.

The Neteru (Divinities)

The Neteru (Gods) saw the barbaric state that humanity was living in and when they saw how we were living, they asked us what our agenda was.

We saw the Neteru (Gods) and their world and said we wanted to be like them. The Divine World of the Neteru was clean, pure and harmonious.

The Neter Wsr, our first Ancestral Father, then went to different Neteru and asked them what commandments we would have to follow so that we would become like the Neteru and they gave him a total of 77 Commandments.

These 77 Commandments were compiled into a Book of Divine Ordinances. They are the Code of Human Behaviour that equipped our Ancestors with the tools that would enable humanity to reach the Divine and live a life with purpose.

The Papyri Neb, Insa & Nebsni

The three papyri (Nb, Nbsni and Insa) on which these 77 Commandments were written on were translated by Master Naba from Medu (Hieroglyphics) to English. These 77 Commandments define for humanity what is good and what is evil and they are also known as the Divine Code of Human Behaviour.

It is these common and shared values defined by these 77 Commandments that enabled our Kemetic Ancestors to live a harmonious life between themselves and the environment.

You may have heard of the 42 Laws of Ma’at and the many different versions, principles, ideals, and the 10 commandments. These all come from the 77 Commandments.

Modern Egyptologists found a list of 42 of these in one of our Ancestor’s tombs. This is why the Confessions of Ma’at read, “I have not”. In ancient times, our ancestors would write the commandments they abided by on a papyrus before their death and buried it with them to remind them what they needed to work on in their next reincarnation

Traditional Meaning of Good

Being a good human being is an uphill spiritual journey that consists of abiding by the 77 Commandments and striving to preserve the territory of good within us at all times. These commandments free us from our own self-defined illusions of what is good and what is evil.

Now humanity has a guide that tells us very clearly, if an action or behaviour fits within this Divine Model that we can use as a resource to bring us closer to the Divine level of the Neteru. Anything that goes against these 77 Commandments should be avoided at all costs.These commandments, no matter how difficult they are to follow, are our freedom. They are what prevent us from living in the darkness of barbarism and ignorance. They free us from having to suffer as anything less than a human on his/her quest for perfection and refinement.

Being human is what makes these commandments hard to follow. By our nature alone, we are corruptible. It’s our corruptibility that defines our humanity.

Wsr as the Sovereign of the World of the Dead

If we do not strive to fulfil the vow our Ancestors made to the Divine World, we don’t have a way to be in harmony with nature.

The Neteru give us a means to fulfil the goal we will always have: to come as close to the Divine World as we possibly can by perfecting ourselves in this state of being. They gave us the 77 Commandments and taught us how to purify ourselves in order to reach our goal.

Those Deities are now responsible for ensuring the balance and the transformation of humans. The Neteru are to us as a parent is to a child and the Neter Wsr, our first Ancestral Father, will be our judge.

Through this exposure to the Divine World and applying the wisdom and knowledge what they gave us, we became Kem.

To become a Kem is to be one who has matured beyond the basic and animalistic nature and instinct of the human being. It is when you take command of your emotions and start basing your actions on logic and rational thinking.

We learned how to utilize the Earth in order to nourish our bodies, to heal ourselves to think and be intelligent and how to treat one another as brothers and sisters.

The culture of Kemet became the origin of the global culture that enabled human enlightenment to take place because Kemetic culture travelled and spread all around the world.

People were attracted to the knowledge and wisdom that the Kemetic civilization had to offer and they came from all over the world to learn about how to live a life of quality. Due to this yearning for enlightenment, the world lived in balance and harmony for thousands of years.

Unfortunately this Kemetic wisdom and knowledge was seen as a source of power and this attracted the colonizers and their evil.

Colonial Invasions into Kemet

Here is an important history lesson that you need to know about the origins of these colonial invasions. In Kemetic culture, whenever a Pharaoh died there was a grace period of one great year (four seasonal years) that had to pass before the new Pharaoh sat on the throne of the Great House.

This means that there was no Pharaoh for 1,461 days which was the duration of one great year. During this period was the only time that the Kemetic civilisation was at its weakest and this was when colonial invaders did their looting and pillaging.

When the new Pharaoh sat on the seat of the Great House, invaders could not dare carry out their looting and pillaging because no seating Kemetic Pharaoh was ever defeated by any invader.

After the looting and pillaging, the Kemetic culture was able to rebuild itself and continued being a beacon of enlightenment for the entire world.

The colonisers were in still in awe and amazement at the achievements of the Kemetic civilisation and they desired the attention that people all over the world paid to the Kemetic civilisation.

These colonisers had nothing to offer to the world that would attract their attention and they plotted to usurp the seat of the Pharaoh so that they could get this attention for themselves.

With time, they studied the Kem and they found out that their strength lay in Kemetic spirituality which was based on these 77 Commandments. These colonisers then lay in waiting until the next passing of a Pharaoh.

When the Pharaoh finally passed away, they took advantage of this moment of weakness and invaded the Nile valley and enforced by the way of the sword that our Ancestors should follow only 10 commandments.

The corruption that was caused by this reduction of commandments made it easier for the colonisers to usurp of the great seat of the Pharaoh. This was what finally caused the deterioration of the Nile valley civilisation.

Even though they took the title of “Pharaoh”, these colonisers did not have the Kemetic wisdom and knowledge or even the slightest quality required of a Pharaoh. This resulted in their untimely demise of each and every successive usurper of the great seat of the house.

Little did these colonisers know that the Dogon bloodlines had since migrated away from the Nile valley to western Merita (Africa) to safeguard the purity of Kemetic wisdom and knowledge.

The colonizers did not stop at the Nile valley civilisation and moved on to spread their corruption, suffering and destruction to other indigenous cultures all over the world.

Authentic Kemetic Culture

What makes knowledge valuable is when it is applied to the consciousness of the individual in order to achieve enlightenment – to become a good person.

According to humanity’s Ancestral forefathers, being good requires that our quality rise higher today than it did yesterday.

To achieve such a feat, we need a reason as well as a guide to do so. Up to this day, modern societies remain fascinated by how the Kemetic civilization was able to accomplish amazing feats that remain unmatched by modern technology.

We are conditioned to search everywhere else for some identity except for the place recognized even by the modern world as the mother of all civilizations.

If we are looking for knowledge of traditional Kemetic culture and spirituality, we have to look to those who are actively preserving this way of life.

Kemetic culture has been around for more than 150,000 years. Within this rich culture was the practice of natural healing.

During this long period, Kemetic healers had the time and patience to study and find out exactly how the human body worked.

Kemetic healers were able to come up with powerful healing remedies that restored balance to the human body by using specific herbal remedies. They preserved and passed on this healing wisdom and knowledge from generation to generation which is now available through Ankhkasta Natural Healing.

In our quest for a sense of self and identity, we should look at societies which have preserved Kemetic wisdom and knowledge without seceding to colonial motives.

When we investigate the origins of these societies, we find ourselves going back to their origins in the mystery schools of the Nile Valley civilizations.

You can get the very same Kemetic spiritual wisdom and knowledge that was taught in the mystery schools of the Nile Valley civilizations right here at The Earth Center because Master Naba was granted permission by the Dogon royalty and elders of the initiation.

This makes Master Naba the only authentic Dogon Master and High Priest of Traditional Kemetic Spirituality that had the knowledge, authority and permission to initiate people into Kemetic Spirituality outside of Meritah (original name for Africa).

With the reopening of the Kemetic Dogon Temples in the form of the Earth Center, there was the challenge of sequentially passing on this vast Kemetic archive of knowledge and wisdom to the outside world so that it is not overwhelming to the recipient. Remember that Kemetic culture is over 150,000 years old and so is the knowledge and wisdom that we are passing on to you.

Please know that what humanity is going through right now is not new to Kemetic culture. Our Kemetic Ancestors understood life’s challenges and how to maintain harmony in life. They passed on everything needed to survive and flourish from past generations to the present.

This vast Kemetic archive of knowledge and wisdom covers traditional culture, spirituality and philosophy and an introductory portion of it is currently done through the Firefly Productions.

We know that you have many spiritual and philosophical questions about life and you will find many of your answers in the Firefly Productions. For quick access, please click below.

With the reopening of the Kemetic Dogon Temples after being closed for more than 2,500 years, now is the time to bring back peace and restore harmony and balance to every human being for the survival of current and future generations.

There remains a lot of work to be done. We are rebuilding and restoring Kemetic culture but while we have made progress in certain areas, we appreciate any help you can give us.
