Egungun: The Afro-Indigenous Genealogy Project


The focus of “Egungun” (Yoruba for “ancestors”) is to utilize genealogical and genetic research as a catalyst for healing and creative expression in pursuit of reparations for Afro-Indigenous people. At no cost, participants will chart their family lineages, take tests from African Ancestry to uncover their ancestral genome, conduct oral history interviews, engage in indigenous ancestral spiritual rituals, and synthesize their findings in a culminating artistic presentation in Bed-Stuy.
